Guardians of the Galaxy Episode 1
With a viewing of the new Guardians of the Galaxy movie fresh in my mind, I kicked backed this weekend with the first episode of Telltale’s latest adventure title…Guardians of the Galaxy, and my first few hours with this new series was top notch. Through great writing and some decent exploration and puzzle solving, I was watching the credit roll on Episode 1 way sooner than I had wanted. Thankfully, I know there is more to come.
Those unfamiliar with the Guardians of the Galaxy story might feel a bit thrown off early, as the game throws you into battle almost right away. You will learn the characteristics of the characters in an unconventional way, but it won’t take you long to realize one thing: sarcasm abounds, and Rocket Raccoon is the best. Like most Telltale games, Guardians of the Galaxy does feel like a movie for most of the 2 hour adventure, but certain ‘point and click’ moments really slow down the pace of the game while you attempt to figure out which aspect of the environment you are meant to click on. This can take significant amounts of time unless your lucky enough to zero in on your target right away. If you can’t, get ready for the most frustrating element of this first episode.
