Edition: Limited Edition with Chase McCain Minifigure
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 many 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.
LEGO City: Undercover for Nintendo Wii U features:
- 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.
- Experience LEGO City like never before. Familiar play sets come to life as you explore the vast city, looking for clues to bring Rex Fury to justice.
- 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.
- There are more than 100 vehicles for players to collect and use to explore the city, including sports cars, motorcycles and even aircraft.
- LEGO video games are known for their humour and parody, and LEGO City: Undercover delivers this with fully voiced characters and ambient crowds to bring LEGO City to life.

The graphics are a treat on the Wii U with superb voice acting and the classic Lego game humour is intact. My 6yo has had no problem playing through the first few levels unassisted, enjoying having the in game characters talking to him via the Wii U gamepad whilst he controls Chase McCain on the TV.
If you have a Wii U already this is a no brainer. If not but the Lego games are your thing, this Wii U exclusive (for the moment at least) adds to the case for buying one.
I use to love GTA, when I say GTA I actually mean the original top down view shifting back and fourth and creating pile up after pile up to only set them on fire and then that was it, the fun died. Jump forward to a few years ago and GTA IV released on the XBOX. I grabbed a copy spun it up and away I went on my adventure as Nico.
Oh dear, I know sandbox games are the rage and these open world environments appeal to some folk as giving the sense of freedom but I like my games to give me some structure.
This is where Lego City comes out tops.
Firstly yes as stated by other reviews the game does like it's load screens, which can be overbearing especially if you've just waited a minute for a cut scene to load and then another 2 minutes for the level to load but its a small gripe and one I am confident Travellers Tale games will sort out. The second complaint made by others is no multiplayer, however you know what I am not bothered about that and feel the game has enough variety so far (only 7 hours in) that I've not once wished I was playing with a friend.
Now on to the guts, you play as Chase and you get various missions to perform, these missions give you specific objectives and usually result in you getting a disguise (think of it as a different character). These disguises allow you to perform different key moves which really makes the game world feel fresh. When I say feel fresh I mean that I can take a new disguise and go to an area previously explored to find something new within it or a different outcome.Read more ›
There are loads of cool secret Nintendo characters/items to find. This game uses the GamePad well, but I was slightly disappointed that I couldn't play the game on the Gamepad only. Batman Arkham City: Armored Edition (Nintendo Wii U) has many cool Gamepad features whilst playing on the tv, but it also allowed you to play without the need of the tv as well.
Anyway the controls for the cars and Chase McCain are spot on. Lego City is a pretty easy game like other Lego games, which means younger/casual gamers should be able to complete it as well. My main issue is the long and many loading screens, which does stop the flow of the game a little. Lego City is one of the best games for the Wii U at the moment, which is a exclusive and should not be missed.

One of the best Lego games ever. It's even better than Lego Marvel Avengers. I'm 24 and my brothers are super busy so the one player mode was perfect for me. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Zara
