For the first time, the fan-favorite LEGO City vehicles and play sets come to life in LEGO City: Undercover, exclusively for the new Wii U console. Players assume the identity of Chase McCain, an undercover detective armed with clever disguises. The mission is to put a stop to the fiendish Rex Fury and end his crime wave in LEGO City. As players run, drive and even fly through the city, they’ll use the Wii U GamePad controller as a new police gadget.
New Experience from the GamePad Controller The Wii U GamePad is woven seamlessly into the game-play experience. Players use it to scan for hidden clues and criminals, receive mission updates and place waypoints on an overhead city map that displays their position in real time.
Action-Packed Gameplay Experience LEGO City like never before. Players will encounter familiar play sets come to life as they explore the vast city, looking for clues to bring Rex Fury to justice.
Take on Various Roles Players can go undercover with a variety of disguises, including a firefighter, a construction worker and even a robber, and use their unique abilities to solve puzzles and access new areas of the city.
Behind the Wheel or rudder? All at your will There are more than 100 vehicles for players to collect and use to explore the city, including sports cars, motorcycles and even aircraft.
Full of Fun LEGO video games are known for their humor and parody, and LEGO City: Undercover delivers this and more with fully voiced characters and ambient crowds, bringing LEGO City to life.
Pros: Large, open world littered with things to do and collect (disguises, bricks, super builds, vehicles, extras etc). An enjoyable charm and humor to the characters and story. Very family friendly.
Despite playing many open world games, this one felt fresh for me and I might go so far to say that it exceeds the enjoyment I had playing GTA3 for the first time.
Cons: You might hear a lot about the load times in this game, but much of that is overblown. The one thing I'd say there though is the initial load each time you fire up the game to reach the start menu is seemly the longest and most notable, because you hit that and then select your game which then proceeds to load. Hopefully they work out that initial load with an update, but otherwise it's not an issue for me or my wife.
Other Thoughts: We have eight games for our Wii U and while all of them are great, so far this is the gem. If you have a Wii U or needed a reason to get a Wii U, this is it. It's been years since I have enjoyed a game as much as this one.
