  • Excerpt: Sometimes, a good TV show should stay a good TV show. Any and all spin-offs are a bad idea, and that includes video games. The Shield is one of the grittiest, darkest, edgiest cop shows out there, so it may

  • Excerpt: Oh look, another videogame based on a popular TV show. Lots of curse words in this one, some of them said by the characters in the game; most of them said by you. Guess how good The Shield: The Game isn’t?

The Shield: The Game

  • Conclusion: It is perhaps understandable that a publisher might pick up a game like The Shield dirt cheap from the cancellation pile simply on the strength of its license, but it ultimately would have been better for all of us if The Shield had stayed away from retail shelves. It's a conceptually flawed and poorly executed action game that has only the most base-level details in common with the license it's based on.
  • Pros: Solid voice acting.
  • Cons: Interrogations and other supposed moments of gritty violence are woefully underplayed, Storyline is lame, Shooting isn't satisfying, and stealth missions border on inept, Ugly graphics.

The Shield Review

  • Excerpt: The Shield should probably have never been released. That might sound like an overly harsh statement for a game that isn't abysmally broken, but take this fact into account: Six months ago, The Shield was sitting comfortably on the shelf of game development purgatory, seemingly canned after original publisher Sammy decided to stop publishing games. For some reason, Aspyr then swooped in and rescued this beleaguered licensed action game and put it out for all to buy.
  • Pros: Solid voice acting
  • Cons: Interrogations and other supposed moments of gritty violence are woefully underplayed, Storyline is exceedingly lame, Shooting isn't satisfying, and stealth missions border on inept, Ugly graphics

  • Summary: The Shield est au final un jeu d'action plutôt moyen, souffrant d'une réalisation qui manque cruellement d'éclats. Néanmoins, le jeu n'est vendu qu'à quarante €uros.

  • Conclusion: Gudarna måste vara tokiga. Eller? För inte fan är det mitt fel att jag under min semester tvingats sitta med Hour of Victory och nu praktfiaskot The Shield (världens tredje sämsta actionspel någonsin). Gudarna måste som sagt vara tokiga, för om de straffat mig på detta viset för gamla synder, och därmed tror att jag efter tio hemska timmar tillsammans med två skräpspel ska uppföra mig bättre i framtiden, tror de helt fel.
  • Pros: Titelmelodin från TV-serien är intakt
  • Cons: Superulsel spelkontroll, idiotiskt upplägg, hysteriskt dåligt ljud, ful grafik och bedrövlig story
