Telltale Series offers originality, adventure

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, Episode 1: Tangled Up in the
Blue does a great job at being an episodic graphic adventure video game. Developed
and published by Telltale Games, Guardians of the Galaxy is based on the Marvel’s comic
book series of the same name, allowing players to take on the roles of each of the Guardians
but primarily playing through the role of Star-Lord.
The Telltale series is an original story that has characters’ canon but is not tied to the
Marvel film and instead focuses on interactions among the Guardians themselves. Like
other Telltale games, Guardians have interactive conversations with dialogue choices that
impact character impressions and the story. Also, players will find exploration segments
that require a bit of sleuthing from the gamer. And of course, there are plenty of quick-time
events that require a button press for action scenes.
Guardians has a great story with excellent voice actors, detailed graphics, and an Aplus
soundtrack. The script was very compelling and kept my interest until the end of the
episode leaving me wanting more. The voice actors did a great job and made it feel as
close to the actual actors in the movie. The graphics, although not the same comic book
ink drawings found in The Walking Dead series from Telltale, were pretty good. Finally, the
soundtrack is spot on and really delivers on the mixtapes Star-Lord would listen to.
Although the game did not suffer from frame and optimization issues like that Batman
series were plagued by, it did have the occasional second freeze between major scenes
while loading up the next. Also, this episode seemed to end very quickly compared to
other Telltale Games in the past, however, maybe I was just having too much fun to notice
it was about the same amount of content and time.
Guardians of the Galaxy has introduced the new Telltale Series in a great light and I’m
excited to see what they will offer in the next episode. With crisp illustrations and quality
dialogue, Telltale have started off on a great path with Marvel’s eccentric team of heroes.
