Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Review Roundup
The release of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy is nearly upon us, and that means the game's embargo is now up, allowing reviewers the opportunity to share their thoughts. At this time, the general consensus on the game is fairly strong, with many positively comparing it to Marvel's Spider-Man on PlayStation 4. It remains to be seen whether audiences will embrace the game as critics have, but this is certainly a good sign for any players that might have been on the fence. The Guardians haven't had nearly as many video game outings as other superheroes, but perhaps this might even lead to more in the future!
Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy is set to release October 26th on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.

ComicBook.com - Rollin Bishop
"Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy is a good game that wants to be, in Peter Quill's words, metal. It doesn't quite reach that mark, but compared to other recent Marvel video games that aren't Spider-Man, it succeeds more often than it fails. If you've liked other incarnations of the team's lovable misfits and misanthropes, you'll like what the developers have done here. And even if you're only somewhat aware of its Marvel background, there's a lot to love already here that a fresh coat of bug-fixing polish will only make better."

PlayStation Universe - Garri Bagdasarov
"Eidos Montreal has crafted one of the best superhero games to date. Their attention to world-building and characterization should be followed by many studios to come. The exciting combat, which blends action RPG elements with strategic player commands, and breathtaking visuals and animations, is something to behold. But what truly sets this title apart is the fantastic writing, not just for the Guardians themselves, but for every character you come across. If you weren't a fan of the franchise before, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy might just change your mind."

DualShockers - Dean James
"Guardians of the Galaxy is everything that Marvel's Avengers should have been, offering players a single-player focused adventure with some of your favorite comic book characters. Mixed in with solid gameplay and continuous witty banter between your teammates, Guardians of the Galaxy will leave you already excited for what you would expect to be the inevitable sequel."

Forbes - Paul Tassi
"If you miss hyper linear story games with no live service BS, and are a big Marvel fan, then this might be the game for you. If you are hoping for Devil May Cry level combat and God of War type puzzles and exploration within a linear story, you will be disappointed. But I can safely say this is probably a better end product than most people were expecting, and that alone is a pretty big win for a game that felt like a bit of a risk and like it's been lacking in buzz leading up to launch here. It has issues, but it gets a lot right, and pushes storytelling in ways I haven't seen in this genre before."

IGN - Tom Marks
"If you, like me, played the Square Enix-published Marvel's Avengers and said to yourself 'I wish this had just focused on the single-player campaign instead of all this game-as-a-service stuff,' then do I have good news for you: Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, also published by Square Enix, has flown in to save the day. With no microtransactions, no multiplayer, and a relatively meaty story, it's further proof that linear, single-player campaigns haven't gone anywhere"

Push Square - Liam Croft
"For as much uncertainty there has been surrounding Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, the final game has delivered. Fun and frantic combat provide the basis for a long, extremely enjoyable campaign featuring the characters you love and the tracks your kids usually screw their noses up at. A great title that deserves to be expanded upon in the future."

Dexerto - Michael Gwilliam
"From a plot, acting, and character standpoint, Guardians of the Galaxy is amazing. It's clear that Eidos-Montreal has reverence for the source material and poured a lot of heart into crafting an engaging story that has just the right amount of humor and charm while still presenting an over-the-top threat to the universe."

GameSpot - Jordan Ramee
"Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy doesn't feature an engaging combat system, save for the moments where the team huddles provide a loose connection to the much more engaging narrative theme of the strength of communication. The game instead shines via its storytelling, which is enhanced by a talented collection of voice actors and a wonderful soundtrack. If this game is your introduction to the titular heroes, it's not the best first impression, but sometimes when the galaxy needs to be saved, you can settle for good enough."
