LEGO City: Undercover
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."
This game will keep you busy for sometime,there is so much collecting in this game it is nuts but in a good way.if your a fan of the gta series then you'll feel right at home.Lego undercover is a open world game and it rivals most open world games because its really large.so if you you have a wii u or not this is a must buy game,bravo nintendo for having a exclusive game thats amazing on wii u and one more thing,pigs will fly in lego undercover so have fun guys..
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! :):):)
Lego GTA. About time. I remember seeing a troll video about it a long time ago and I thought it was real. But now it is. It sucks that it's only on wii u though. Ima get a wii u just for this game. Can't wait till it comes out. And it's a rip cause it's $100!!!!
THE BEST LEGO GAME EVER!!!!!
This is the best lego game they have ever made. I keep playing it to see what more I will unlock. It very much so is a lego grand theft auto except you are a police offier. I just robbed a bank!!! I will never sell this game!!
This game looks great! I can't wait to sit down and play with my kids. I have every lego game made and this one will be great to add to the collection!
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.
Revolutionizing LEGO games
LEGO Batman 2 is the latest LEGO game to completely redefine the possibilities of this genre. LEGO City Undercover will do the same tenfold. Complete free-roam with many of the same features of GTA within a LEGO game...interesting to say the least. I'm super pumped for this game, as well as the Wii U.
LEGO City Game!
Hello this game looks awesome! I am glad they are'nt doing a liecense theme game 'cuz LEGO's done that alot anyway I hope this is a launch title but I am very excited! I hope LEGO lord of the rings and LEGO batman 2 will be on this too!
GTA Lego style
I should have reviewed this game a long time ago, but I forgot I had this game and now no one will probably read this review. Oh well. The STORY of the game is your a detective who works at the police station and you need to capture the escape convict, Rex Fury (Insert Fawfal's "I have fury!!!" joke here) There's more to the story as you progress but that's the basic jist of it. This game is full of "Easter Eggs" from movie references and Mario Easter Eggs everywhere. This game has elements of a typical lego game such as building, destroying, and definitely humor; but it also has elements of GTA as well because you can "steal" cars, and basically do whatever the heck you want, except harming the lego people (it is an E10 game after all so it's not fully GTA Lego edition) GAMEPLAY. There are many costumes you can unlock in the game. There's the required ones, then there's the costumes you can unlock and wear for fun. There are about 8 main costumes you unlock, but you start off with 2. Every main costume has different abilities that you'll need to pass certain areas of the game. This game has about 10 chapters to it, each containing side objectives that are required to beat this game 100%. Speaking of that, this is a massive game and it'll take you a very long time to 100% it cause there's unlockables to find everywhere. To put it in perspective, I beat the main game, but for the total game, I only beat it 16.5%. That's how big this game actually is so you'll definitely have fun exploring the massive city which is Lego City. PROS. This is a huge game, and it's just about perfect. The city's big, the game has humor, it's a free roaming game, unlockables everywhere, the final chapter is amazing, and I love the music in one part of it, it's a great game. CONS. The only big con I have was one day I put the game in, it went to the game, but then it game me an error. I fixed the problem finally and it only happened once to me, but someone on Miiverse had the same problem I did. Other than that, perfect game for anyone and everyone. Also, if you see Sonic 06 being recommended.....I'm joking, just needed to fill up the third slot. Enjoy your painful memories again :)
