A group of superheroes trying to save the galaxy? On the surface, this seems awfully similar to what Square Enix did with the Avengers, but we’re happy to report that Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is nothing like the money-hungry Avengers game. In fact, Guardians of the Galaxy atones for the money-first policy that the Avengers set with Square Enix. This is a pure, blockbuster-level single-player game. To put it simply, it’s like playing a movie!
Now, where have you heard that before? Countless times with all the big-budget single-player games right? The Last of Us 2, Ratchet and Clank and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. These games don’t exactly introduce anything new to the realm of videogames as Deathloop does, but their massive budget drives cinematic sequences, scripts and animation to a level that is hard to imitate. That’s exactly why the Guardians of the Galaxy doesn’t disappoint. The game mechanics play it safe, but the story, script and voice acting infuse a life that makes it hard to differentiate the game from a movie.
