It's Like Grand Theft Auto, Minus All the Wrongdoing


Author: Peter Grimm  

Given how every single LEGO game in the last few years has been connected to one popular franchise or another, it's nice to see that TT Games is finally breaking that mold with a game that tells an original tale.

That game is LEGO City Undercover, which sets players into the role of Chase McCain, an undercover detective out to clean up the streets of the brick-riddled metropolis of LEGO City by putting an end to the illegal actions of crime lord Rex Fury. To do that, he'll need to make use of all his detective skills, while players need to make use of some neat Wii U-exclusive features.

While gameplay looks similar to that of its LEGO predecessors, there is one thing that sets LEGO City Undercover apart (besides not being based on an existing franchise), and that's the city itself. Presented in an open-world fashion, LEGO City is open to exploration, allowing players to seek justice their way.

LEGO City Undercover's vast setting allows for a variety of unique experiences, from making one's way around platforming sections, to getting around town in over a hundred vehicles (including sports cars, motorcycles, and even helicopters), to using various disguises (such as a firefighter, a construction worker, and a thief) in order to access new areas of the city.

Aiding players in in their quest for justice is the Wii U GamePad. In LEGO City Undercover, the controller is an invaluable tool that will be used for a number of purposes. With the GamePad, players will receive new missions and updates, scan the surrounding area for hidden clues and crooks, and position markers on a map of the city that displays where they are in real time.

Topping off everything is the game's story, complete with cutscenes which feature fully voiced characters, and the hilarious, lighthearted sense of humor that the LEGO games have become known for (expect to find at least a few nods to cop films like Dirty Harry mixed in there as well).

While an exact date has yet to be given, LEGO City Undercover is widely expected to see the light of day sometime during the approaching holiday season. It's been confirmed to be releasing during the Wii U's launch window, so at the latest we'll see it before the end of March 2013.
