When LEGOs meet Grand Theft Auto.
If you’ve played any LEGO game ever, you’ll immediately understand the fundamental approach taken here – which is perhaps the game’s biggest blessing and curse. Undercover’s excellent open world serves mostly as a backdrop to over a dozen individual missions that exist in separate, more focused environments. Within these contained areas, your goal is simple: to break, build and navigate environments and puzzles (which are significantly more logical than past LEGO games) in pursuit of a particular person or object. Like its predecessors, Undercover also layers in secrets and areas that are only accessible by certain personas and their related abilities, which entices players to return repeatedly as they obtain upgrades. The sheer number of items to collect, and relative ease with which you collect them, helps override the somewhat generic nature of the gameplay itself, which lacks diversity or complexity. Whether you’re a thief, farmer or firefighter, you’re basically doing the same thing. And while combat looks good, you’re basically pressing the same button over and over, and don’t have to think about what you’re doing.In some ways, LEGO City’s post-game experience is better than its main storyline, which is a respectable accomplishment, as the campaign is very good. Finding every secret and tracking down every collectible requires considerable effort and time, and that pursuit comes with a great deal of freedom. The wide world of LEGO City is a vast, sprawling affair, with over 20 distinct districts, including areas inspired by San Francisco, New York City, the United States capitol and more. You can acquire what you want, when you want (provided you have all of your abilities), and the scope of the city allows a diversity of environments necessary to avoid staleness. Above all else, Traveller’s Tales has placed various collectibles and activities cleverly, meaning that exploration is amply rewarded. All told, the number of items to acquire ranks in the hundreds, and there are plenty of ways to move about the world, from quick-travel points to cars, helicopters, boats and… even wheelchairs.
As a Wii U exclusive, LEGO City Undercover is poised to bring with it unique control elements through the GamePad. Undercover does a reasonable job of this, through on-screen maps, Arkham Asylum-esque scanning abilities and taking in-game pictures. Most of this functionality ultimately doesn’t feel too critical to core gameplay however, and while some of it is creative, none of it changes the way the franchise would operate going forward.A few other problems work against LEGO City Undercover. Loading times are not only too frequent but too long. It is not uncommon to endure several half-minute or minute loading screens within a very short timeframe. And nothing to mask this, whether through pre-loading or basically anything other than a horrifically dull white progression bar on the GamePad. Undercover isn’t exactly pushing cutting edge graphics, in fact it suffers from a somewhat inconsistent framerate, so the presence of this recurring issue is more than bothersome.
LEGO City Undercover also omits any sort of cooperative experience, something that had very much been emphasized by past LEGO games. Though the story doesn’t exactly lend itself to a co-op setting, this franchise is essentially built around engaging families and couples. The omission of that option here is discouraging, and could be a deal-breaker for many. The fact that Undercover lacks any sort of off-TV play option is also a significant issue.

LEGO City Undercover is the best iteration of a very familiar experience, which is as reassuring or problematic as that might seem. The sheer scope of the overworld is impressive, as is the way Traveller’s Tales layered in its wide range of collectible goodies, which ensures hours upon hours of activity after the campaign ends, which should take the average player about 10 hours, accounting for some collectible fetching. Undercover’s story is an incredibly entertaining homage to countless movies and television shows, and manages to feature a very strong cast of characters – no small feat considering the game has no major license associated with it. Of course, rampant loading times, no co-op and a variety of other problems (loading times, routine gameplay) hold Undercover back from truly taking the next step for the larger LEGO franchise.
