Hardly make mistakes if I say that the "Guardians of the Galaxy" is loved by everyone - even those who have not seen any comics in their lives and hardly understand what Marvel is. And how not to love this heterodox (literally) gang of heroes, if among them there is a raccoon with a huge cannon, a tree that answers all the questions: "I am Groot," a half-naked and semi-literate barbarian, and also a never- listens to the magical music of the 80's in his antediluvian earthly player and flirts desperately with a green-skinned girl-killer? They are different, but still they are together - it's just about them. But in the Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, their friendship underwent the most serious test.
Writers Telltale Games for obvious reasons, mostly focused on the movies, but at the same time, as usual, came up with their own story. If in the second part of the film Peter Quill meets his father, then in the Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Serieshe, driven by voices and memories, flies to meet with a long-dead mother. But in the end, finds a girl-with-antennae Mantis, an empath who tells him that it was the Star Lord who was chosen to decide the fate of the most powerful artifact called the Bugle of Eternity.
Each decision, every choice - as a nazhdachkoy on the heart: he will somehow hurt someone, lead to fury, or even force to leave the team. This is especially hard to experience after the authors have uncovered the personal drama of virtually every Guardian throughout the season.
For the first time in games from Telltale Gamessome situations you want to replay not in order to take some other difficult moral decision, but just to have a good laugh. Indicates, for example, the Star Lord on the Rocket and, instead of saying something in the spirit of "Look at him, this is a genius mechanic!", Says: "He is full of fleas!" And in order to see how the face of this self-confident raccoon, even the extra half hour is not a pity.
In general, the whole game is built on a combination of action, comedy and heavy moral dilemmas. Five minutes ago, our guards, like Baron Munchausen, got out of the belly of a huge worm through the throat (or it could be through the back - the choice is yours!), And now we decide whether to allow Drax to sacrifice himself for the sake of his comrades.
As a result, one of the best serials in the piggy bank Telltale Games turned out , where every episode you wait and pass in one breath, experiencing a wide range of emotions.
Pros: an excellent story; a sea of humor, action and adventure; emotional dramatic moments of choice; charismatic characters; chic music.
Cons: still primitive as a whole mechanics; little, I want to continue; the line with Yonda never found its development.
