Second episode in Telltale’s ‘GotG’ packs quite the emotional punch
OK, everyone can relax: It seems Telltale is finding its stride once again.
With the release of “Under Pressure,” the second episode of its five-part “Guardians of the Galaxy” series, the studio reminds us that sometimes all you need is one really good emotional hook.
That hook, it turns out, is Rocket, the foul-mouthed, gun-toting, genetically modified raccoon who can speak and fix spaceships in equal skill. The opening title cards for each episode show a particular “Guardians of the Galaxy” characters (if you haven’t played a Telltale game before, you can see descriptions for every episode in the selection screen from the get-go), so it wasn’t a surprise that Raccoon would have an outsize role this time around.
Three “I still don’t have enough weapons” stars out of five.
