"A Slick Exclusive"

REVIEW |

Author: Rando Evans  

(Continuation)

Overall, the gameplay is pretty typical TT LEGO gameplay, with puzzles that are never really challenging, a lot of mini games, pixel hunting, and plenty of block bashing. Still, LEGO City Undercover is as fun as ever. Fans know that TT's recent release, LEGO Lord of the Rings, added story and depth to what we had seen in the past LEGO games. LEGO City Undercover does the same, improving upon the old.

Being a Wii U-based game, one would hope that the GamePad would come more into play, but unfortunately, LEGO City Undercover continues to use it in minimal ways. This continues the trend of Wii U developers seemingly implementing the GamePad just because it's there. In-game photos and maps are about the most you'll be using for, and the game could progress fine without ever using it.

Regardless of being completely different and yet the same, LEGO City Undercover is a complete blast to play. It will keep you going till the end, and you'll even want to try to explore the world a bit even if you aren't a completionist. LEGO City Undercover feels big, but not overwhelming, simply because it's so light-hearted. There are plenty of take-it-or-leave it side objectives, but at least there are things to keep you busy and entertained sprinkled everywhere on the map.  The two biggest problems? No co-op gameplay (which is a completely odd and a strange change for a LEGO game), and the long loading times (which fans of LEGO games will be used to).

So is it worth it to go out and buy a Wii U just for LEGO City Undercover? Probably not. Is it a good game? You bet. It's a fun one to watch kids play together, shouting out suggestions for puzzles or what to do next, and even strong enough to be played by a single adult. For Wii U owners it's a current must, especially if you have been dying to get a Nintendo exclusive game that delivers.


GameDynamo's Score for LEGO City Undercover (Wii U)
Graphics
LEGO Games always have that great LEGO look, and City Undercover remains vibrant and fluid throughout its world.
Sound
Impressive V.O. work, sound design, and music. Bravo!
Gameplay
The perfect LEGO gameplay we know and love in a huge open world with a ton to do.
Play Value
Lots to do, so it will keep you busy for a while with plenty to explore.
 
Final Score  93Editors Choice
A ton of fun for adults and kids. Even though it lacks co-op, it's somehow still fun to play solo or with the family watching.
