This visually stunning adventure follows Peter Quill, A.K.A. Star-Lord, who leads the Guardians on random deadly adventures to, of course, get them all out of debt. Along the way, you learn bit by bit about what happened to Peter with random flashbacks of his past. Of course, on the random escapades of the team trying to become heroes for hire, they stumble upon something a little more sinister and galaxy threatening. While it’s a gig that does not necessarily pay, it’s definitely something forced upon them.
While the story feels authentic enough, the developers did a fantastic job capturing the team’s personality and interactions with each other. The spot-on depictions of the Guardians kept me constantly engaged in the story, especially the banter between Peter and Rocket, or even Gamora and Drax. To add to the immersive feel, this game provides dialogue choices proven to be game-changing just like Mass Effect and Deus Ex. While it’s not as severe as the two games, it certainly has a cause-and-effect outcome. Some decisions can be as little as what fine you may have to pay or how a character acts towards you, others can be the difference between a full-out gunfight or stealth missions. The best part is that any decision you make is handled in a way that suits these mentally unstable heroes that we all love.
