Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy is an action adventure game with RPG elements, based on the license of Guardians of the Galaxy brand owned by Marvel. It was developed by Eidos Montreal studio, which is known for such projects as Deus Ex: Human Revolution or Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and was published by Square Enix.


Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy takes us on a journey to the science fiction universe known from the comic book original. A few years ago the whole galaxy was shaken by a gigantic war, the effects of which are still felt today. As it turns out, however, its problems do not end there. As a result of a series of catastrophic events, another interplanetary crisis appeared.

As you can guess, only the Guardians, led by the main character Peter "Star Lord" Quill, can cope with the upcoming problems. Along with Groot, Gamora, Draks and Rocket, the protagonist goes on a journey during which the whole team will face many threats and get into many troubles. The game is characterised by a powerful dose of humour.


In Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy we observe the action from a third person perspective (TPP). During the game we play as Star Lord only, and we travel through colorful, diverse levels, talk and fight.

On our way we often face enemies which we eliminate by using elemental pistols and protagonist's jet boots. Apart from that, during clashes we give orders to other team members and pointing out the targets on which they are to use their special attacks. During the battle we can motivate other Guardians, giving them various buffs, such as faster cooldowns of certain abilities or the strengthening of attacks. On our way we face both regular opponents and powerful bosses.

As we progress, we gain experience points and acquire more special abilities for both Star-Lord and the other members of the team. We also acquire parts to purchase various upgrades. In addition, the game often gives us the possibility to select the dialogue, which affects the relationships between the characters, and sometimes also determines the course of the story - although the game has an essentially linear structure, and the story moves towards a single, predetermined ending.

Technical aspects

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy features high-quality graphics. The detailed and richly animated characters are especially impressive, but the varied and rich locations are also very appealing.

It's worth noting that Guardians and their adventures are not a copy of the comic book or movie originals, but their new interpretation. This also applies to the look of the characters, so we won't find any actors from Marvel movies here. This is complemented by the soundtrack, which includes hits from the 1980s, from artists and bands such as Pat Benatar, Wham!, Iron Maiden, KISS or Blondie.
