With many games that are largely considered “great,” there’s sometimes a “but” or several. With Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, there were a few personals “buts” (haha), but the game really was great, and then some! It gets a solid “yes, play!” from me, and you can see why here on Virtual Bastion.
My last attempt at playing a superhero game was with Marvel’s Spider-Man, an excellent game according to one and all. After playing it for a few hours, I concluded that I was far more interested in swinging around New York as the titular friendly neighborhood hero than following Peter Parker’s story. In the moment, superhero fatigue was probably at play. I had definitely had my fill of costumed fighters saving the world from costumed fighters who wanted to destroy it. These lingering feelings played into why DC Universe Online didn’t quite stick, and why I just couldn’t get into Spider-Man: Miles Morales, either.
And then along came Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy (2021).
