 Dead on Arrival sequel played on the Nvidia SHIELD

Recently released, Dead on Arrival 2 is downloadable from the Google Play Store (see the link above). Controller and Tegra optimized, DOA2 pairs seamlessly with the Nvidia SHIELD. The game is free to download and play with in app purchases to advance, although our Kevin O'Quinn says

[those] aren't required. You can unlock seemingly everything through gameplay, with the purchases speeding up the process.

The game seems to run fantastically on this device; the integrated controller allows for precise hand-eye movement, the audio is nice and crisp, and the gameplay leaves nothing to want. You can learn more about the game by viewing the video after the break, or jumping on over to the forums for a first hand view of this perfect match in action. If you've got a SHIELD at home and enjoy shooter games, feel free to take on the undead and let us know how you survive.

My default reaction is to avoid 'free' games. I'm sure this will subject us to the usual extortion

I don't get why you guys are so obsessed with the Shield. I suppose because it's an Android device and there's nothing else like it. But it's a huge waste of money IMO.

I already get annoyed because 99% of the games I play on android don't sync between my phone and my tablet. I don't need a 3rd device with ANOTHER save file. Especially for this price.

That's an issue with the software publishers, not with Shield. Google has recently released Google Play Game Services. In time, publishers will be on board.

Shield makes news because a) it's built well, b) it's Android, c) it's a dedicated gaming device w/unique features.

I thought the title was in reference to the Sheild itself.

The title is in reference to the game being played on the shield. Since the game was developed for both tegra and controller optimization, it only seems fair that it be given a go.

Sorry, I was being a bit sarcastic. I think the Sheild console, or whatever it is, is dead on arrival.

Just my personal opinion. Lol

I see. Sorry, I tend to take things a little literally. Sorry you feel that way about the shield. I personally feel like it's an unprecedented keystone in mobile gaming.
