LEGO City Undercover
Lego City Undercover is an action-adventure game. TT Fusion developed it for the Wii U. The game was released in 2013, and now you can see it remastered for Microsoft Windows, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
The game takes inspiration from the typical dumb cop action, kung-fu, gangster, prison movies, and even detectives. It remains an amusing riff on police procedurals. Lego City Undercover is full of exciting side missions and collectibles to hunt down. It’s a solid police story with dynamic crime-fighting, so get ready for the chase.
There are lots of improvements on the Lego City Undercover since it came out on the Wii U. The graphical development, items, different objects, and textures now look better. Still, some odd graphical blemishes are worsening the impressions from the game.
Everything happens in an immense Lego City where you control Chase McCain — an undercover cop. Chase fights crime and hunts the villains. He can do wall jumping and swing across the poles. He pilots various vehicles like automobiles and helicopters and uses bricks to create multiple objects.
It’s fun to get new disguises which will give you the unique abilities. For example, if you wear a robber disguise, you will be able to break locks.
You can also play other personages as soon as they’re unlocked. However, they talk with Chase’s voice in all the situations, except those cut-scenes where Chase can’t be seen.
You may notice that the game’s gameplay borrows from the Grand Theft Auto series. But this fact doesn’t spoil the Lego City Undercover concept. It is role-reversed with the main character as a police officer enforcing the law. You will only commit offenses against the law on several occasions to infiltrate criminal gangs. That’s why the game is appropriate for everyone that is 10 years old and over. You’ll see mild cartoon violence and heat some crude language in Lego City Undercover, but you won’t find anything inappropriate for kids in this age range. The gameplay is simple enough for children to progress and have fun.
The controls are straightforward and accessible. But platforming and the camera are sometimes awkward. The main character moves pretty well, and it’s exciting to experiment with various vehicles within the game.
