Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is a Refreshing Comic Book Gaming Experience | Review

Just a year after launching Marvel’s Avengers, Square Enix has dropped Guardians of the Galaxy, a more linear game that’s a ridiculous amount of fun.

We recently had the chance to check out Square Enix’s new Guardians of the Galaxy game on the PlayStation 5. As you’ve likely gathered, the game doesn’t follow the movie versions of the characters, but still manages to capture the vibe of the characters in a way that will appeal to both fans of the comics and movies.

While it is a more linear experience, and a bit shorter at around 14-16 hours, the overall production values and story experience are more than worthwhile. Let’s dive a bit deeper into this game:

As is typically the case, your enjoyment of the game will ultimately come down to your play style. If you’re more into open world games with an insane amount of sidequests and things to explore, you might find Guardians of the Galaxy a bit limited. If you’re down with deeper story and heftier character exploration, then you’ll have plenty to enjoy here.

Guardians of the Galaxy is available for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC and streaming via GeForce NOW on October 26, 2021.
