Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy (PS4)
Fire up a wild ride across the cosmos with a fresh take on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. In this third-person action-adventure game, you are Star-Lord, and thanks to your bold yet questionable leadership, you have persuaded an oddball crew of unlikely heroes to join you.
Some jerk (surely not you) has set off a chain of catastrophic events, and only you can hold the unpredictable Guardians together long enough to fight off total interplanetary meltdown. Use Element Blasters, tag-team beat downs, jet boot-powered dropkicks, nothing’s off-limits. If you think it’s all going to plan, you’re in for a world of surprises, with the consequences of your actions guaranteed to keep the Guardians on their toes.
In this original Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy story, you’ll cross paths with powerful new beings and unique takes on iconic characters, all caught in a struggle for the galaxy’s fate. It’s time to show the universe what you’re made of. You got this. Probably.
- LEAD THE GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
You play as Star-Lord, so nothing’s off-limits with your bold combat style, from Element Blasters and jet boot-powered dropkicks to tag-team beat-downs. With the Guardians fighting at your side, call the shots and overwhelm your opponents with signature attacks. Meanwhile, the consequences of your decisions will range from light-hearted to downright unexpected as your journey unfolds.
- ALL-NEW STORY
Your newly-formed band of legendary misfits is set to save the universe in this fresh but faithful take on the Guardians of the Galaxy. Somehow, you set off a chain of catastrophic events, leading to a wild ride through mind-blowing worlds inhabited by iconic and original Marvel characters. Turn up the all-star ‘80s mixtape and get ready to kick it.
- FROM MISFITS TO SUPER HEROES
You’re the only thing holding the unpredictable Guardians together, so you’ll have to get better at this leadership thing fast. With this offbeat approximation of a family at your side, there will be tears and laughter as you set about tearing into the cosmos together. Whatever’s waiting around the next corner, you know it’s going to be a blast.
This is DEFINITELY not Marvel's Avengers

This was the perception I had of GotG when it was revealed and truthfully, I was not looking to it, nor was I planning to pick it up. The critic reviews definitely helped to sway my opinion I decided to pick it up day one.
Oh what a pleasant surprise this game is. So much charm, so much character and it really feels like you are playing a Guardians game. The combat is fun, the banter is hillarious (Drax kills me) and the world is wacky and very alien. I am only a few hours in but am already enjoying this way more than I anticipated and it is undoubtedly a GARGANTUAN step up from Marvel's Avengers.
I do have some issues with the camera sometimes (not sure if its a symptoms of playing on last-gen as I am still on PS4 Pro) but those issues are minor and can easily be excused in light of the pure fun you get from playing this game.
The above thoughts are first impressions but I don't forsee much changing so all in all, a definite MUST-BUY for any Marvel fan!
