While The Council's meager finale is indicative of its inability to meet the lofty expectations it set for itself early on, there's still a lot to like for fans of the genre. Your acceptance and enjoyment of the story's twists and shoddy lore will determine just how much you like it, though.
The Council continues to be unabashedly unpredictable in its twists and turns, but Episode Four's character developments leave much to be desired. Its Social Influence system remains a fun mechanic, but an "overpowered" Louis renders the skill tree mostly moot.
Episode Five is a step back for the series in multiple ways, leading to a conclusion that feels rushed and minimally fulfilling.
Episode Four improves on its predecessor in most ways and sets the stage for an explosive finale.
The midpoint of Telltale's Guardians of the Galaxy treads water without making any significant improvements to gameplay.
A slow but solid start to the series that should please fans of the movies.
Under Pressure provides more of the same with plenty of room for improvement.
