Who could’ve predicted a partnership between Marvel Entertainment and Square Enix? Not me. The two absolute monoliths in their respective fields joined forces to develop games based on Marvel heroes. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is the second game developed in this partnership after the critically panned Marvel’s Avengers. The game was developed specifically by Eidos-Montreal and arrived at generally favorable reviews. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy currently sits at 80 on Metacritic across its platforms except for the Switch port which sits at 58.
The Premise Of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy
The game is a third-person action-adventure game. You play as Peter Quill also known as Star-Lord. You can attack enemies with a variety of weapons each with its own damage types and mechanics. The other guardians are controlled by AI but you can give them commands in combat. The game is mostly linear but there are plenty of things to collect and places to explore. At certain points in the game, the player makes key decisions via dialogue trees that affect the relationships between Guardians and change the outcome of missions. These choices are referenced by characters throughout the game. That being said there is still only one ending.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Cheat Code FAQs
How do you scan enemies in Guardians of the Galaxy? There will be times when you need to find something or get a better look at your surroundings. You can do so by using Star Lord’s Visor Scanner by pressing the right stick on your controller or pressing the V key on your keyboard.
How do you use Guardians of the Galaxy abilities? To use Abilities, press and hold the L1 button, or Left Bumper, to bring up the Guardians Mode wheel, select a Guardian, and then the Face buttons again to select a move. Time slows while using this menu.
Should I sell Groot or Rocket? This choice is completely up to you because it doesn’t matter. Both choices pay out the same amount of credits. The only thing that changes is how you’ll complete the rest of the mission. If you want to play a stealth mission sell Groot, if you want to play a firefight mission then sell Rocket.
