Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series – Episode 3 Review

Okay, is it just me, or did this episode of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series drop with little to no fanfare? The only reason I knew this episode was out was due to a random browse of the DLC section, otherwise I’d have had no idea. Consider this review your public service announcement, just in case you’re in the same situation.

When we last saw our intrepid intergalactic interlopers, they had just found the temple that Peter Quill’s visions had eluded to. The Eternity Forge, and the Guardians themselves have reached the top of the galaxy’s most wanted lists. Then again, when aren’t the Guardians causing trouble?

Now we’ve reached episode 3, we’re finally provided answers to a lot of key questions, specifically the origin of Quill’s visions. It wasn’t the Forge, it was someone in particular. No spoilers, but it was someone integral to the dynamic of the Guardians and a character that fans of the team should be aware of.

For the most part, episode 3 is a filler episode. A lot of the chapter is spent in weird fantasy vision land or flashbacks detailing the relationship between Nebula and Gamora. Those flashbacks, told through the perspective of both characters, give more insight into what fractured their relationship in this universe.

Despite its filler status, the final chapter is possibly one of the most important of the game so far. By the end of the episode, the fate of the Eternity Forge will have been decided, with the Guardians looking set to be a house divided rolling into the last two episodes.

Episode 3 is an entertaining episode, but the game itself is beginning to show cracks. Choices in Telltale Games should be tough and hard to decide, but it feels like there’s a community consensus when it comes to the majority of the decisions. How can we organically have different playthroughs when there’s 80% of the player base agreeing with you?

Despite that, this latest episode has done a great job of holding my interest for the closing episodes. The end of this episode potentially leaves the Guardians at each other’s throats whilst staring down the looming threat of Hela. Hopefully, with some more morally grey choices in the future, we can expect a truly exciting second half. Let’s just hope episode 4 doesn’t sneak up on us this time!
