by Dman4567 The Best "Kids Game" and LEGO game to date.
Now that I've finished the campaign, I can safely say that LEGO CiTY Undercover is without a doubt, my favorite "kids game," ever made. About 3/4th's of the jokes aren't even aimed towards kids. They contain references and jokes to old 70's cop shows, classical art, other game series, sarcasm, and so much more.
The Story: Chase McCain has return to LEGO City after a 2 year absence. LEGO City's most notorious villain, Rex Fury, has escaped jail and Chase has to stop his acts of villainy and has to arrest Rex. Simple right? Well, the plot gets more and more complex as Chase unveils a layer of the mystery. Unlikely allies emerge, and enemies in the shadows will shock you. So... the writing in this game, flawless. Anyone can enjoy it, and I think an adult audience will get more of the jokes and see why it works.
Music: The music ranges from stereotype 70's cop music, to something out of a Japanese RPG, to just plain out orchestrated epicness. The music suits every situation and most tracks are catchy. I sometimes just stopped what I was doing and just enjoyed the track. It's that well done!
Gameplay: If you played a Tt developed LEGO game, you know the basics. There are various disguises that allow Chase special abilities. Sort of like LEGO Batman 1 & 2, but funner. But what makes LEGO CiTY's gameplay so unique, is that there are free running segments that feel right out of an action movie. The combat is well done and feels like an easier form of the free-flow combat of the Batman Arkham series. LEGO City is enormous!!! Imgaine GTA V's layout and size, only with LEGO characters. Yup, it's that big. And graphically, this game is VERY impressive. At first, the LEGO characters in HD look like.... well, real-life LEGO minifigures. But as the setting involves more scenery such as grass, or water, or even just sand; we get to see the detail that Tt Fusion has put into the game.
All in all, I love this game. It's pitch perfect. A great casual game that makes well use of the Wii U gamepad and is one of the best comedies I've played. 10/10. P.S.: This game's climax is one the best in ANY game. Better than some action games even. Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING reaches its peak; the writing, music, and graphics just go to a point that isn't even imaginable in a "kids game."
Rated 6 out of 10 by JQM78 Good game... for kids.. maybe?
This game has some appeal... mostly in the fact that if you like lego games, this is the first one that's open world.... However, there's a few minor things that kill it for me as a core gamer and I've seen that alot of biased reviews have overlooked, such as: The camera controls, they're slow and the sensitivity can't be tweaked. Personally, for me, this is a major issue, since camera controls are consistently being used in an open-world game. The vehicles and vehicle controls: Lets be honest, the vehicles are painfully slow.. going uphill in the police cruiser, the car literally 'chugs' along, not to mention that the steering is not very tight and feels 'loose', nowhere near what you will find in a game like Saints Row. And lastly.... the character and fellow cop "Honey"... he's not funny and may be mentally challenged.... I won't get into it, but you'll see if you play the game... what I mean..
Rated 9 out of 10 by Elias2010 FINALLY!!!!!!!
It's about time they made a lego game like this. The good thing about this game is that it's finally different from any other lego game. Why? Because most lego games arent terribly different from each other. Most of them have the same plot and it kinda feels like the game wasn't alive. What I mean by this is that the other games just weren't lifelike. All of the games had the same plot and most of them didn't feel like they had a had talking fuigres. But this time it changed, and in a good way. The game FINALLY takes place in a city plus you even get to run from the cops LEGO STYLE I:D!!! However, even though the game changed A LOT since the last lego games, it still has that classic lego game feel which I think is pretty epic. Over all this game has been majorly inproved and has things we've been missing out on in the past. My only concern with this game is it was not released on any other consoles besides the Wii U and 3DS, which is why I needed to buy a Wii U to play this. Other then that that, I think LEGO has finally made a game that stood out to the other lego games.
Rated 0 out of 10 by iLoveNintendoFlo Looks awesome. Way different Lego game. :) :D :)
Lego City: Undercover is yet a another Wii U exclusive. it the first Lego game to be partially developed by Nintendo. Its a open world action adventure game. Because the development is largly overseen by Nintendo they have decided to make the game completely different from the other lego games. This is a sandbox game with many ways to travel around the large city. Thay are over 100 types of vehicles plus you can climb up buildings and use your pardcord acobatic skills. The combat also looks more stylish. Look at the video's for this game it looks really fun. i even think it my have a Mario easter egg. :) :D ;) It also has funny cut seens that paridy popualer movies.
Rated 8 out of 10 by pikagod2012 Lego does it again
After the first couple of levels, or chapters as they put it, it seems as though this game was going to go by quickly and not be much fun. I was completely wrong. There is so much to do in this game. The last lego game I played was Batman and Indiana Jones and those two games had a fast storyline but a lot of acheievable gimmicks that make the game more challenging. Lego City: Undercover does all of that and then some. The audio from the characters is hilarious and makes it more fun. Albeit the game can get a little repetitive at times but seeing that wii u games are very scarce right now this is a great game to hold you over until more are released
Rated 10 out of 10 by iLoveNintendoFlo A adventur full of personality.
Lego City: Undercover is a Wii U exclusive SandBox action game. All though it shares some gameplay mechanics with other Lego games it feels different and fresh. In this game you play as Chase McCain a cop who goes deep undercover. The controls are very good. Lego City is very big, lively and, open to explore. It thay are different parts to the city some based on real world paces. Thay is a lot of variety in the world as well. From the mountains to the forest and of of course the large Lego City the game world is very large and it is great how all roads connect so you can drive from place to place. You can also fast travel from on trains. I really enjoyed the level designs of the game! Thay are lot's of collectables and Easter Eggs about the map and it will take you weeks to get them all. You can climb up blue bricks so you can get on top of some places. You can unlock a lot of costunes and abilitys in this game as well. Thay are over 100 vehickeles in this game from Cars, helipoters, Boats and skatbords. This is a hard game to write a review for as thay is so much to do. Thay are puzzles platforming and Speed runing challenges to take part in. My only problems with this game is the loading times and that thay is no Co op. But the Story and gameplay are great and this is a game worth having. You can also Register it on Club.Nintendo.com! :):):)

I've been waiting for this game since the E3 announcement. I was a little disappointed it didn't make it to launch but that just means I didn't miss out on the Minifig. Now, I see that quite a few people are upset that this is a Wii U title only, and I shall explain why. This game is being PUBLISHED by Nintendo, and not a 3rd party like the Licensed Lego games are. It is being Developed SPECIFICALLY for the Wii U and 3DS. So no, It would Not work the same on the PS3 or Xbox 360.
Rated 8 out of 10 by nashtag ok easy to play game
It's an ok game but needs work. I think it needs shorter levels and the ability to save in game. also the game is to kidish.
Rated 0 out of 10 by AngryLime A humorous lego verison of GTA
I'm 19 and when I think of lego games I just usually pass on them. I did however really enjoy lego rockband both for it's visuals, gameplay, and humor. This game is one that I might be picking up. I love the idea of putting classic lego humor into an open world gta style game. I'm not sure but if you can build your own cars in this game and other things then I will DEF. be picking this up!
