One of the best ways to jump into the Marvel Cinematic Universe is by actually participating in it yourself. Watching the films and reading the comics will definitely let you understand that story, but what do you do with the overwhelming feeling of wishing you too could be an Avenger after walking out of the cinema?
Luckily, there are plenty of gaming systems out there that will give Marvel fans the chance to play as their favorite character and follow through a storyline where they too can save the world from apparent doom. The most recent game to drop is Guardians of the Galaxy. Although the game officially releases tomorrow, it seems that others already have their hands on it and cannot stop playing.
The game’s plot allows players to interact as Star-Lord in an all-new storyline, so you never know what to expect.
You are Star-Lord, so nothing’s off-limits with your bold combat style, from Element Blasters and jet boot-powered dropkicks to tag-team beat-downs. With the Guardians fighting at your side, call the shots and overwhelm your opponents with signature attacks. Meanwhile, the consequences of your decisions will range from light-hearted to downright unexpected as your journey unfolds.
Your newly-formed band of legendary misfits is set to save the universe in this fresh but faithful take on the Guardians of the Galaxy. Somehow, you set off a chain of catastrophic events, leading to a wild ride through mind-blowing worlds inhabited by iconic and original Marvel characters. Turn up the all-star ‘80s mixtape and get ready to kick it.
You’re the only thing holding the unpredictable Guardians together, so you’ll have to get better at this leadership thing fast. With this offbeat approximation of a family at your side, there will be tears and laughter as you set about tearing into the cosmos together. Whatever’s waiting around the next corner, you know it’s going to be a blast.
The game will feature the amazing 80’s soundtrack that we know and love from the film, as well as iconic characters such as Groot, Gamora, Drax, and Rocket. The game will be available on PS4, PS5, XBOX Series X|S, XBOX One, PC, and Nintendo Switch. Below are a few of the reviews that are already popping up all over Twitter as talk of the game has been trending!

Jeff Grubb (@JeffGrubb) is a big fan of the new game:
I’ve been playing Guardians of the Galaxy, and it’s just a real solid game. A slightly greater than the sum of its parts situation because the characters and writing start clicking. It also does look and run great with RTX and DLSS on PC.
