We had to wait for this one: since they announced it, and even before getting a Wii U 😉 You may have guessed, Matt and I are fans!

Lego City Undercover

Graphics
Very nice, there are beautiful light effects, non visitable or breakable buildings are well designed too. My only regret: a bug, if you hijack a train, like my kid did… you end up going through the walls.
Grade: 9 / 10

Music
Wow, nice. Some parts gave me the chills. Also, music suited to each area and situation, which is a nice touch. And I am not sure, but I think many parts are “homages” to various films and series.
Grade: 9 / 10

Gameplay
Astonishingly playable… No, seriously, I was a bit worried at playing it all with the gamepad. Let us admit it: this thing is huge and heavy for a controller. But, with a bit of perseverance, I managed all kinds of missions: police, thief, acrobatics course, flying, … and using the gamepad as a scanner tool is fun. And even Matt manages to drive…
Grade: 8.5 / 10

Length / Sidequests
The main story is of entirely reasonable length, but if you do nothing on the side, you barely reach 25% completion. The secondary quests are funny (the farm’s thing… I will not say more, but… X’D), and you get lead on to do everything.
Grade: 9 / 10

Story / characters
Despite not having all details on Chase and his past, his character is funny and still has a bit of depth, and secondary characters are cool (Frank Honey killed me of laughter… the mayoress and the police chef…). Story is nice, with sudden developments, and a “real” end.
Grade: 9 / 10

In the end…
Yes, I bought the special edition, there was no other available here, and it had a Chase McCain minifig inside the box… Erm. So, if you like Lego, Lego games, nice and innovating games, “missions-detective” games, cameo-filled game, or are looking for an L.A. Noire for your kids, do not hesitate!
Final grade: 8.9 / 10
