The Shield, great game, but it seems like they rushed it

5/10
Author: a1f from Scotland
7 July 2007

Being a Shield fan, I naturally bought this game the second I found it. The start of the game, you get an intro (Previously on the shield....) then your thrown into the deep-end (with a few helpful little tutorial bubbles along the way.

The game kicks off just at the end of season 3 (you know after Lem....) and with a storyline similar to some previous episodes (I won't spoil it for you). You control Vic and progress through "15 levels and 33 playable areas".

BUT it sure as heck didn't feel like it. The game was over far too quickly in my opinion. Just as I was getting into it, the credits role.

As for the content, all characters voices are done by the actors (or very good impersonators) except for Claudette (that really bugged me).

The graphics are not amazing, the characters bear strong resemblances to the show but not great quality. Great use of environment to interrogate people (kinda like The Punisher game) but no enough of it.

So to summarise, Great game, but it felt rushed

CONS:

Far too short

Not enough interrogation

No real value in the "unlockables" (maybe i didn't get the good ones)

Not Claudette's voice

Not enough Lem!!

PROS:

Control Vic

Have Ronnie & Shane as backup

Environmental Interrogation

Shooting (you can shoot the guns out of peoples hands)

Planting Evidence

Byz-lats & One-Niners

ITS THE SHIELD
