The storytelling sags a little in the middle, but just when you think you know where everything is heading, a little change of direction – and plenty of space brawling – brings things back around. Bring on episode four.
Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series - Episode 3 "More than a Feeling" cements this as another classic adventure from the developer. Humor and drama are both on display in full force. You'll face some tough choices here, and watching the face of a disappointed crewmember will not be easily forgotten.
The third episode of the Marvel's Guardians of Galaxy is the one of the finest works of Telltale but it can not save the future of this game singly. There are still two episodes left and only time would tell if Telltale can ace it again or not.

Telltale's Guardians of the Galaxy has been circumventing my expectations ever since the crew killed Thanos in the very first episode, and that trend continued here. I really have no clue where the series will go next, and that leaves me excited. I'm more than happy to be along for the ride with Star Lord and his ragtag crew.
As I write this review, I'm once again eagerly awaiting the next chapter of my Guardians of the Galaxy adventure. The series has the same essence of excellent writing and humor that Tales of the Borderlands embodied, and if it continues I may have just found my next favorite Telltale series.
Episode Three: More Than a Feeling furthers the intriguing story and takes it to new grounds, thanks in part to the carryovers from the previous episodes' decisions and the heart-breaking story centring on Gamora.
With only two episodes of Telltale Games' Guardians of the Galaxy left, once again I'm left excited as to where the story is headed next. Marvel's off-the-wall IP has made for a great source material for Telltale, allowing them to deliver what to me is one of their best series' to date. Hopefully the last two episodes will continue to deliver the goods.
We're close. To what exactly? To this series reaching the same heights with me that Tales from the Borderlands did. Hands-down that was my favorite Telltale Games title so far, but you know what? Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy - Episode 3: More Than A Feeling shows that the devs really have a handle on mixing some science fiction and humor together.
Anyways, as a verdict I will give Guardians of the Galaxy episode 3 an 8/10. I think it does better than episode 1, but a bit worse than episode 2 in terms of moral choices and character development. I guess I’m seeing it that way, because I had already set myself on the “let’s try to reconcile Gamora and Nebula” path right from the very beginning, so it wasn’t hard for me to decide.
More Than a Feeling takes two steps forward and one step back, as the team at Telltale finally demonstrate their sense of direction for the season ahead in the most humorous and intriguing episode this far. The lack of diverse environments makes the gameplay seem less subtly formulaic than other Telltale titles, but the significant plot improvements bodes well for the remainder of the season.
The third episode of Telltale's Guardians of the Galaxy series puts a heavy focus on the relationship between Gamora and Nebula, which offers more than a few major decision points that will effectively change how your experience plays out. It's a solid episode, which happens to have a bit of a pacing issue.
Picking right up where we left off in episode 2, with more important choices to make. More Than a Feeling sets up the rest of the season for high hopes, and we cannot wait to see what's in store.
It took a while (and effective months of uncertainty), but Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series finally did it, reaching a point where Telltale's peculiarly successful approach feels justified, while also managing the dual feat of selling me on their distinct, cinema-inspired vision of the titular characters as a genuinely cool alternate take (one I actually prefer to the current comic book originals, at the moment). Now it'll be up to the next two outings to bring it home.
The third episode delivers a good balance between action and character development, having a satisfactory ending. Although still below the expectations, the Telltale's series is in a good position to gain altitude and finally take off in its final chapters.

It's finally time for something to happen to the Eternity Forge and our beloved Guardians. "More than a feeling" is entertaining and more balanced than the second episode, but it's more packed with action and, therefore, with a ton of QTEs.

More than a Feeling is not far from other episodes but also it doesn't add anything else to the series. narrating the story of Gamora and Nebula helps this episode but the series can't continue like this.

While More Than a Feeling introduces a new Guardian and gives us an interesting look at Gamora and Nebula’s stories, it begins to lean a bit too far into the habits of the films.
While it's the weakest episode so far, More Than A Feeling still has some moments of payoff for leadership successes (and failures) earlier in the series. Integrating Nebula and Mantis into the team more firmly also enhances the dynamic ensemble without making the Milano feel crowded without reason. None of this could salvage the poor pacing, but the combination of new plot revelations, the consistently entertaining characters, and the overall attitude of this series has me looking forward to seeing it out.
Once the whole series is released, Episode 3 won't be memorably bad, but when you've been waiting months to progress Guardians' story, it's a short and disappointing installment at best.
Though the plot moves slowly in episode 3 of Guardians of the Galaxy, it still sets the stage for something great. Those looking to learn more about the crew of the Milano may enjoy it, but the more impatient among us may see this chapter as a half step.
The thing with Episode 3 “More Than a Feeling” is that it’s a far cry from the mostly feel-good setting of the series and it suffers because of that. There are some strange writing choices, not enough difficult decisions to make and the pacing is far too slow. Where it succeeds is in the fantastic climax to the episode, with a battle to remember and a reason to want to join in next time.
With each passing episode of Telltale's Guardians of the Galaxy, the chances that the series will evolve from a mildly entertaining diversion into an essential purchase grow dimmer. There's nothing here that's especially bad, and it's certainly not the worst series that Telltale has put together, but so far there's precious little beyond the easy Platinum Trophy to warrant a recommendation to anyone other than those enamoured with either the Telltale format or the Marvel characters. More Than a Feeling, quite simply, is more of the same.
While More Than A Feeling at least gives Telltale's fledgling series direction, the surprisingly brisk length and game-breaking bugs place it among the studio's lesser efforts.
While the internal conflict is decent and there's some great jokes, the third episode of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series just continues to cement the season's place as one of Telltale's weakest offerings.
While there are some great moments, overall, this episode feels rather mediocre. Just as the previous episode succeeded thanks to the introduction of the new member, Nebula, the introduction of Mantis here is definitely the highpoint, but outside of this, the story fails to captivate its audience once again. Even the "big finale," which gives two options to destroy the Forge or empower it, fails to give enough of a stinger or cliffhanger to leave the audience excited for the next episode… Two to go and it seems that means the histories of Groot and Drax may be on display. These flashbacks into memory are one of the few saving graces, so they should be good at least.
More Than a Feeling is not a bad game when compared to some of the other titles clogging the market. However, when compared to Telltale's other series, it fails, lacking the drama and heart that made many of them so endearing. When compared to the films that it draws inspiration from, it can't compete with the likeable cast, crackling dialogue, and exciting action scenes. Once again: if you want to spend two hours with the Guardians, you're probably better off watching one of the movies again.
