Engadget Review

The Shield is a pleasant surprise and quite an impressive device. It's not the portable console you're looking for, but it's also so much more than that.

Pros
  • Fast and powerful
  • Gorgeous screen
  • Excellent media player
  • Impressive battery life
Cons
  • Heavy, not very portable
  • Gamepad needs work, thumbsticks too low
