Is Pokémon Shield worth it?

215 users have added this game. Usually if a player adds a title to their games list, they likely had a positive experience with it. When we combine the total number of players who own this title with some other behind the scenes factors, this game definitely seems to be worth it. We recommend picking it up. That being said, at $26.99, this game isn't exactly cheap and we can understand if you would like to do some more research before purchasing.

Worth it!
