Forums - Gaming Discussion - Guardians of Galaxy Metacritic (81)

Seems like the new Guardians of Galaxy is better than I was expecting based on the disappointment of Avengers. Averaging 81% with 66 reviews.

Although over the decades comics have become ever more reflective of the complexities and concerns of contemporary life, in the end, they are still often the literary or cinematic equivalent of fast food: momentarily delicious, exactly what you need to fill the void, but not necessarily memorable or nutritious. Guardians of the Galaxy isn’t afraid of touching on some weighty themes, but they’re always secondary to an absorbing story, entertaining characters, and engaging action. Guardians of the Galaxy isn’t perfect, but overall, it’s a very effective translation of Marvel’s iconic band of misfits from page or screen into interactive entertainment.

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy is a good game that wants to be, in Peter Quill's words, metal. It doesn't quite reach that mark, but compared to other recent Marvel video games that aren't Spider-Man, it succeeds more often than it fails. If you've liked other incarnations of the team's lovable misfits and misanthropes, you'll like what the developers have done here. And even if you're only somewhat aware of its Marvel background, there's a lot to love already here that a fresh coat of bug-fixing polish will only make better.

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy gave us positive vibes from the moment we set foot on Milan. A solid gunplay, the importance assigned to the cooperation between the protagonists and the phenomenal script lead us to widely approve Eidos Montréal's fresh and original vision of the precious license of the House of Ideas. However, there are some reserves of a technical and playful nature, accompanied by a fairly limited level of customization. Whether or not you are a die-hard fan of the most ramshackle supergroup in the Multiverse, let yourself be enchanted by the extravagant style and personalities of the Guardians of the Galaxy, and set off with them for the stars.

I really didn't expect to enjoy Guardians of the Galaxy as much as I did. The game's marketing left me incredibly lukewarm, and I wasn't sure what to expect, even after the first couple of hours with the game. What I found, however, is one of the best stories of the entire year. There's definitely a bit of tedium packed into the overall experience, but Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy is an adventure well worth taking, warts and all.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is a great portrayal of the space-faring heroes and a good game. We encountered some annoying bugs that are hopefully alleviated with patches, and it's pretty linear, but this is an interstellar romp that you can enjoy across a few evenings.

My stupid ass read the title and was all like "wtf, that movie doesnt come out until 2023".
This game looks stupid fun, I was hoping it'd be in the 80's but I dont really think imma get it until its on sale.



Thats cool. Will probably check it out sometime.



There was a lot of negativity surrounding this game but it was mostly from really nonsense reasons (mostly the Avengers game, which was made by a completely different team). I liked what I saw at E3 and was optimistic, but even then over time I gotta say the negativity almost got to me as well. 81 on metacritic is just about exactly what I originally expected it to score, but recently that expectation was turning moreso into hope. The internet can really influence us.

A shame they never gave us a localized price here in Brazil. Not like I'd have the money anyway, I'm totally dead. But would be nicer if it didn't cost the same fortune Nintendo games do. Might be a while before I can play it...




I make music, check it out here on Bandcamp, Spotify, and Youtube!

For PS4 and PS5 you can buy it for like 230 BRL which with USA taxes would mean 36 USD for us so it is good price.

I guess, that's still pretty expensive though. And I don't have a PS4 or PS5. Usually games get cheaper localized prices on PC which is where I can play it, but nah we're doing full-blown R$300, never mind Denuvo DRM. I spent all my money on the other R$300 release earlier this month, and I definitely don't regret it, but this just sucks. Then again, I knew this was gonna happen months in advance, so I had time to try to become rich.

I'm glad to see this is reviewing well but I'm even more glad that this doesn't follow a GAAS model. This game initially wasn't on my radar but now I'm planning to pick this up down the line.

I do understand your point, and yes for Brazilian reality 300 per game is quite expensive, although physical owners are buying and reselling like 2 weeks later when they finish for like 80% the new price and if you wait those 2 weeks, you can buy used, play and resell without almost paying anything. Dunno if Switch have a version or how much would end up costing, but yes PC all digital won't have that use.

I just bought miles morales for 100, the guy that sold me had bought it couples week earlier for 120.

Problem with localizing prices is that the games now are region free, so if they put the price much lower in a country that can feed the grey market.

Seems like a solid game. May wait for a sale to buy it.



I hope other companies look at this and avengers and realise people don't want GaaS model. But this is the real wolrd and most likely they will just find a way to milk us anyways.
