Summary: Sammy Studios and Point Of View capture the look, feel, and authenticity of "The Shield" television series in a 3rd-person action game. Never-before-seen gameplay elements create the first true-to-life police action game, and moments taken directly from the series immerse players in the disturbing Farmington underworld now recognized by millions as Vic Mackey's universe. Players control Vic in a living, breathing Farmington, engaging in perilous assignments ranging from busting crack dens to thwarting bank robberies. Much like the series, Vic and the Strike Team delve into the grayest areas of the law, fighting a war on crime where the ends justify the means. In addition to the raw action that undergirds the gameplay, players employ tactics used by Vic on the show, including intimidating suspects, employing brute force, accepting and offering bribes and planting incriminating evidence. The game also lets players choose between the right and wrong side of the law, with Vic walking a thin line while trying to accomplish missions, maintain the respect of his men, keep his politically ambitious police captain happy, pad his retirement fund and, above all, avoid Internal Affairs.
