  • 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 Review

  • Summary: Neither quality fan service nor a good action game on its own merits, The Shield fails miserably to live up to its license's pedigree.
  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.
