    If I had any complaint about Lego City Undercover, it'd be that it doesn't diverge too much (or, possibly, at all) from its original version on the Wii U. As I said up top, though, that means there are only about a dozen or so people who'll actually notice that. For everyone else, for whom this will be an entirely new, go out and grab this game ASAP, because it's well worth your time and money.

    With such a fun story, great gameplay, and the ability to enjoy with a friend or relative, you’re never short of having a good time.

    LEGO City Undercover is an original, hilarious, and action-packed adventure that provides ample freedom and endless activities. It is apparent, however, that despite its revolutionary features back in 2013, the remastered version shows that many elements need retooling to be on par with current LEGO video games.

    Fine port for multiple formats of one of the best (but somehow ignored) action adventure games for the Wii U. Charming fun for one or two players.

    LEGO City Undercover is a slap-happy LEGO GTA. This 2017 remaster of the 2014 Wii U exclusive now introduces the originally absent co-op play, while also jumping onto the Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Easily my favorite LEGO game in years.

    This brand new version is undoubtedly the most recommended for everybody who wants to live an open world adventure in a LEGO environment. Playing in handheld mode is fun, but the frame rate problems are so heavy in certain moments.

    It's easy to see why some would outright dismiss LEGO City Undercover purely on the basis of it being a LEGO game. The formula has gotten a bit too stale over the years, so if you're looking for something fresh in the LEGO universe, Chase McCain's adventure won't satisfy you. But if you're still interested in some brick hunting and cop action - and you can look past some awful load times - then LEGO City Undercover will serve you nicely. Its charm, humour, and open world nature was, for the most part, enough to win us over.

    El paso a mundo abierto le ha dado muchísima variedad, aunque sigue sin desprenderse de las mecánicas básicas de los videojuegos de Lego, que ya empiezan a quedarse obsoletas. La mejora en la tasa de frames y la inclusión de cooperativo convierten a este port en la mejor versión del título.

    Un GTA para pequeños y grandes, repleto de personalidad y cosas por hacer. Recomendadísimo.

It is anThis game will give you a good core 20 hours of gameplay with many, many more hours to get to a full completions on most activities. It is an open world game with plenty of things to do. We did not notice any major bugs on our play through at the start of 2022. My wife and I played through the missions on this game in co-op mode and it provided us many evenings of entertainment.

    The levels on this Lego game were easy to figure out the next step. We did not have to resort to YouTube at any point in the levels to figure out what the next step was, which we had to do in other Lego Games.

    The story is a little weak and not as interesting as other Lego games. We found our selves more interested in just completing the game than what was actually happening in the story.

    A great Lego game. It’s GTA Lego. The gameplay is fun and the animations are charming.

My son bought this without my permission for $30 DOLLARS! I let it go, he came back to me telling me that the game was overall bland and very boring. Very disgusting that my son wasted $30 as we're currently trying to sue the developers back for our $30 Dollars.

    DO NOT BUY...
