Is It Any Good?

Drawing more on the comic than the movie, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: THE UNIVERSAL WEAPON is a good introduction to the story. It's a solid game with plenty of levels and different play styles, but it can overwhelm players with too many things going on at the same time on-screen, which can be frustrating. There's a wide assortment of characters to choose from, and, unlike many of today's games, there are no in-app purchases, and the game doesn't require an Internet connection to play.

Those are odd things to tout on Marvel's part (and it does tout them loudly), but they're actually advantages these days. They don't make the gameplay any better, though, and, unfortunately, that gameplay is not engaging over the long term. It's fun for a while, then a little frustrating -- and then you're wandering over to another app and not looking back.
