ah you picked the wrong dr who game.

cant get better than dr who and the mines of terror. they couldnt license most of the official stuff so k9 was replaced by a robotic cat called sphinx and yeah it was a bad puzzle platformer

The only thing I rememeber about The Shield game was when X-Play did a review of said game...

Other than that, the first game that I thought about for this list was Lost: Via Domus... *shutters* And to think my best friend bought The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct for the Wii U...

There was also an awful Prison Break game that absolutely took liberties with the series' canon.
