A fantastic '80s soundtrack and excellent voice performances across the board, Guardians of the Galaxy simply sounds great.
In Quality Mode, GotG looks lovely, but the frame rate can occasionally chug, even on new-gen consoles. Performance Mode is far better, still looking slick, locked to 60fps.
Combat is fast, frenetic, and fun, while traversal, exploration, and platforming is tight and enjoyable. There's little, if anything, not to like here.
A well-paced story, marred only by occasional visual bugs or bothersome glitches that require a quick checkpoint reload. Nothing major.
A good, robust list with the perfect spread, covering story progression, collectibles, combat accomplishments, and more besides. Pretty much spot on.
