Apr 11, 2017An often-forgotten gem of the Wii U library gets a new lease of life on its successor, and it marks a perfect stopgap between the majesty of Breath of the Wild and the carnage of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe later this month. Minor framerate issues and higher price tag aside, LEGO City Undercover ranks as one of the very best LEGO games and an ideal portable companion.
Apr 14, 2017Lego City Undercover for Switch doesn’t offer any new content from the Wii U version, but if you never played the Wii U version, than this is an easy choice for Switch owners.
Apr 7, 2017Despite its lack of originality, LEGO City Undercover is a fun and light-hearted LEGO game which you can't help but smile at.
Apr 19, 2017From the hundreds of trinkets to the passersby's stupid comments, LEGO City has me smitten. I’ve finished the story and gathered a handful of collectibles, but LEGO City Undercover will stay in my Switch for a good long while.
Apr 11, 2017If you like LEGO games you can discover now one of the most original entries, but it feels like a missed opportunity to fix its performance issues and add more relevant content, particularly as a full-price release.
Apr 25, 2017LEGO City Undercover is an action-packed platformer filled to the brim with secrets and charm. Whilst the series as a whole has evolved - negating how impressive this was back in 2013 - you'll still find plenty to enjoy on its own merit.
Jun 1, 2017Lego City Undercover is a solid offering from Warner Bros. and TT Games. It doesn’t offer an experience all that different from previous Lego titles, but the jump to the Switch hardware does make it a step up from many other Wii U and 3DS Lego offerings. The game does suffer from some technical warts, but for those that never made the trip to Lego City, this is certainly the best way to experience it.

Oct 1, 2017Absolutely crammed full of Lego universe humour and a fantastic showing of what the Switch is capable in terms of giving us a 1080p/30fps openAbsolutely crammed full of Lego universe humour and a fantastic showing of what the Switch is capable in terms of giving us a 1080p/30fps open world game in the veins of GTA but without the M+ rating.
The only minor gripe I have with this game is that the eshop version is coming in at around €50 here but the physical card can be bought for €30-35 it's just a shame to have to pay an additional €20 for the convenience of not having to swap out game cards to play this if the digital versions cost was in line with the RRP it seems to be following right now.
Really great game though, if you're looking for another open world that isn't Hyrule then this is well work checking out.… Expand

Apr 12, 2017I first gave this game a blazing bad review, giving it a score of 2 due to the obvious optimisation problems it have, the varying 10 - 20 fpsI first gave this game a blazing bad review, giving it a score of 2 due to the obvious optimisation problems it have, the varying 10 - 20 fps in both handheld and tv-mode and bad performance in multiplayer.
After giving this review i played it through and its a really entertaining puzzle type open world of a game, though i wish there was a hard mode or something where it doesn't hold your hand through the whole story and makes you figure things out for yourself.
And i don't know if it is that I've grown used to it or if it have gotten better but the frame drops seems to be less than when i started playing the game.
Also after finishing the story the game started to crash. Ive played about 20 Hrs without crashes and 7 hrs with about 8-9 software crashes.
Locked crazy annoying camera angles in some areas
The outrageous price
Fun story with a lot of fun references to games and movies
Multiplayer is a blast even with the poor fps
Dont buy this game if you're not a big lego fan, until they hopefully adress the fps and optimisation problems in future updates and drop the price.… Expand
Jul 22, 2017Disclaimer: this review is written by a person who played the Wii U version and dropped it for 2 years
Lego City undercover is my favoriteDisclaimer: this review is written by a person who played the Wii U version and dropped it for 2 years
Lego City undercover is my favorite lego game right after Lego Worlds, the game is about chase McCain who is a police trying to save lego city from the popular robber Rex Fury (Again)
The simplest way I can describe this game is a "Kid-friendly Grand Theft Auto"
You won't be comparing the 2 with each other
The game is so huge that the story itself is 25% of the game( don't expect cutscenes outside story)
I had some frame rate drops at multiplayer and I find the game to be really easy
And. The most difficult parts are beatable from the 2nd to 4th try
If you have the Wii U version there are 2 reasons to get the switch version
1) Playing it on the go
The game doesn't support online by any way
The Nintendo reference requires an update to get and the Mario hat was removed(unfortunately)
This game is worth a try if you haven't played the Wii U version and 100%ing it is fun… Expand
Oct 3, 2018Absolutely abysmal game. This game fails to understand what makes GTA so refreshing. This game builds an open world, but then fills it withAbsolutely abysmal game. This game fails to understand what makes GTA so refreshing. This game builds an open world, but then fills it with invisible walls. The gameplay falls into a loop: Drive, puzzle, quick-time event, boss, drive, etc. The driving is dull, puzzles are repetitive, and bosses are simply pointless and dull. There is very little detail, and after 15 hours in the game, you haven't even touched 90% of a map, and there's no reason to explore this area. The unused areas are uninteresting unless you enjoy watching cars driving and people moving. Insane pop-ins and pop-outs, a button-bashing combat system, and overused humor.… Expand
