Lego City Undercover Spies On Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PS4 and PC This Spring

Posted on January 12, 2017 by Rae Michelle Richards

Warner Bros Interactive is assigning their veteran LEGO cop Chase McCain to another adventure through LEGO City with the current generation re-release of 2013’s previously Wii U exclusive LEGO City Undercover.

LEGO City Undercover is an open world city exploration titles that allows players to guide McCain through 20 unique districts filled with both minor crimes, collectables and story missions to keep the detective busy.  Over 100 different vehicles roam the streets of LEGO City with a number of different categories including motorcycles, helicopters, sports cars, trucks and some truly exotic rides.  LEGO City Undercover wouldn’t do the franchise justice without dozens of movie references and allusions to pop culture that allow the LEGO games to be enjoyed by gamers of all ages.

We reviewed the original Wii U version back in 2013, Here is a sample of what Les Major had to say about that version:

It’s hard to find faults with this game. I loved it! For long time gamers or youth, there is content to be enjoyed here. From movie parodies, to just the comedy in general, the writing is fun, clever, and keeps you interested throughout the game. 

Make sure to check out the embedded trailer below for the cross platform version:


Lego City Undercover | Review

Posted on April 21, 2013 by Les Major

Lego City Undercover is two things, and does both very well. It is an all new Lego adventure in the theme and concept of your favourite titles to date, improving on that design. The game is also possibly the first youth friendly Grand Theft Auto inspired title. It really ends up feeling like you’re getting two games in one with all this content. It took me over 24 hours to get through the story, and I still have side objectives around the city to complete.

Undercover focuses on Chase McCain, a police officer just returning to Lego City after years away. In true GTA fashion, this brings you into the world not knowing how it has changed, either. So you’re exploring along with your character. There is very little I took issue with in Lego City Undercover; I really did love the game. It begins with a broadcast from a radio station, and this is quite a tease since the game itself includes no radio stations. So much otherwise reflects GTA wonderfully. The music in Undercover is great, but for those big action scenes that called for it, they could have faded out the radio stations and got back to the original soundtrack.Read More


LEGO City Undercover Released and New Launch Trailer

Posted on March 19, 2013 by Les Major

The Wii U title that everyone has been waiting for is finally available! Gamers take on the role of undercover detective Chase McCain as he pursues criminal mastermind Rex Fury. Combining the stud collecting adventure of previous LEGO titles and the open world concept we’ve seen developing and improving through games like LEGO Lord of the Rings.

Developed by Traveller’s Tales for Nintendo, LEGO City Undercover swaps multiple characters for outfits Chase can disguise himself with to gain access to new areas with their unique abilities. The game has focused areas like previous LEGO titles in which the missions take place, but there is a city out there to explore as well.Read More


LEGO City’s Latest Trailer Gives A Glimpse At The Open World

Posted on January 23, 2013 by Les Major

Many saw LEGO City as an open world family friendly GTA like game when it was first announced. Oddly enough I can’t help but think of similarities as I watch this latest trailer that gives a look at some of the games transportation. LEGO games have come a long way in a short time from LEGO Batman 2 having loose open world controls, to LEGO Lord of the Rings getting the formula down much better. Now it seems we’ll have much more to explore in this latest Wii U title.Read More
