The Shield is the greatest show ever. The game on the other hand could have been so much better. The biggest problem here is that the game feels so unfinished. Remember; this game was supposed to come out 3 years ago so all of it feels dated. I guess the best way to describe it would be like a low budget version of the Punisher game. Lot's of shooting and torturing bad guys which is not bad but the entire game feels like it should be filler for something bigger. The game engine itself is not that bad but it needed huge amounts of tweaking to sharpen it up. I liked the mini game aspect of finding evidence but it didn't really have any purpose. I hope Aspyre decides to make a second Shield game the way it should be made. Take the engine from True Crime streets of New York, change the city to look like Farmington, then use the engine of this game for the storyline portions and there you go; an awesome Shield game. Maybe someone who does mods will read this reviewand make that happen. This game could have been so much better if it had a sandbox element with it. Imagine being the strike team driving around Farmington busting random crimes and getting calls from the Barn. Add in some more voice overs and that would seal the deal. Shield fans start e-mailing Aspyre!! I know I will.
