Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy takes us on a journey to the science fiction universe known from the comic book original. Several years ago, the entire galaxy was shaken by a gigantic war, the effects of which are still felt today. As it turns out, however, her troubles do not end there - as a result of a series of catastrophic events, another interplanetary crisis looms on the horizon.
The upcoming problems in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy can only be dealt with by the title Guardians, led by the main character of the described game - Peter "Star-Lord" Quill. Together with Groot, Gamora, Draks and Rocket, the protagonist goes on a journey during which the whole team will face numerous threats and sometimes get into trouble. The whole is characterized by a powerful charge of humour.
On our way in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, we regularly encounter opponents (including bosses), which we eliminate using elemental pistols and the protagonist's jet boots. In addition, during the clashes, we give orders to the other team members, indicating the targets on which they should use their special attacks. In the heat of battle, we can call a meeting to give a motivating speech to our companions (this requires choosing a dialogue option appropriate to the situation) and put them on their feet and provide them with various reinforcements.
As we progress, we gain experience points and acquire new special skills of both Star-Lord and other team members. In Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, we also get parts to buy various upgrades. In addition, the game often gives us the opportunity to choose dialogue options, which affects the relationships between the characters, and sometimes also determines the course of the plot - although the game has an essentially linear structure and the story tends to one, predetermined ending.
In Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy we follow the fate of the titular Guardians of the Galaxy: Star-Lord, Drax, Gamora, Groot and Rocket. A team of mercenaries gets involved in an intrigue, as a result of which they must save the world from destruction. In all this, the personal motivations of each of the characters are mixed in, of which the past of Star-Lord himself is the most clearly outlined. Sounds pretty standard, and in fact it is.
The only interesting element of the whole is that the action takes place in a different timeline than the one from the movie universe - Thanos is dead in it. This is a story that could easily be translated into a series script and would not suffer from it. There is no shortage of epic duels, betrayals, space chases and there is even room for moments of emotion and laughter.

And there is no shortage of humor, because, just like in the movies, the dialogues in the game are saturated with it. The conversations of the Guardians are one of the best elements of the entire plot, and their relationships are masterfully outlined. Sometimes we can even decide for ourselves how the conversation with our charges will go and we will be given the opportunity to make a choice. However, these are not choices like in an RPG game. These are smaller decisions that will change the tracks of minor threads or - for example - decide whether we will get easier access to a certain location. Nothing great and there is no need to count on the fact that by going through the game a second time and choosing a different option we will get a completely fresh story.
