    I rented this game because my friend likes the show. It sucked the life out of me in a way that was almost humorous. I thought it was a difficult game until I realised that it was (and remains) a broken waste of time.

  1. Worst of all, the game is glitchy; I phased through a few walls and got gunned down after getting stuck behind some invisible cover.

    The Shield is too little, too late; what would've been a merely mediocre license tie-in is now, due to its very late birth, simply a bad game.
  3. 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.
