” As a result of that characterization, however, jokes land generally, as well as less-important interactions offer to construct out the team. That as well as good voice acting cancel a couple of harsh bits of dialogue (Rocket making a ‘your face’ antiphon as well as following it with, ‘That was horrible,’ for example). Peaceful, intimate minutes between characters are just what Telltale does best, and this episode strikes a great equilibrium in between Guardians-style snark as well as discussions with a little more meaning to them.
” The episode establishes a crucial dispute as well as major inquiries concerning the galaxy going into Episode 2. Some a lot more game-y aspects can take you from the experience a little bit, yet this is also a compelling introduction to the collection that captures the unique charms of the Guardians– plus, there’s some kickass music.”– Kallie Plagge [Full testimonial] IGN– 8.5/ 10.
” Guardians of the Galaxy is definitely starting off on the right foot, with an excellent script, great actors, and a cosmos loaded with character (and also backed by appealing tunes) to check out. If it could continuously provide the top quality of dialogue as well as panel-perfect activity throughout the remainder of the period, it could locate itself seated in the upper echelons of Telltale’s magazine. I just really hope that now the series has actually introduced itself, the series gives its settings and also personalities just a little bit even more time to take in between speeding up the plot along.”– TJ Hafer [Complete evaluation] COMPUTER Player– 58/100.
” By the end of the very first episode Guardians of the Galaxy establishes its overarching story, which connects right into the background of the Kree, with a brand-new huge negative and also an infinity stone-esque McGuffin. Some Marvel planetary comic specialists might be woozy to see the Kree obtain more love– as well as allow’s be straightforward, the movie’s bad guy Ronan the Accuser was very forgettable– so I really hope the series locates strength in its story as it establishes. As it stands, Twisted Up in Blue is a meandering introduction to a cast I currently know, leaning on a framework that does not play to their staminas. In concerning a hr and also a fifty percent, Guardians of the Galaxy tops out at ‘heh.'”– Wes Fenlon [Complete testimonial] US Player– 3/5.
” This is an Obvious design game through and through. If you’re tired of what the workshop has done in the past, this won’t transform your mind. Batman: The Telltale Series felt like a more powerful evolution of the franchise, utilizing the Investigative Vision auto mechanic to address problems and also give even more personal battle options. Until now, Guardians of the Galaxy seems like a go back from that series. Guardians of the Galaxy simply includes up to a weaker beginning than Telltale’s previous comic adjustment. Telltale shocked me with some tale decisions below, so I would love to see where they mean to take the team, yet as a first episode it really did not strike me in the digestive tract as well as make me excited for the next.
