Summary: LEGO City Undercover for the Wii U, despite a heap of technical issues, brought a ton of charm to the platform. The fully voice acted experience was not without its camp and cheese factor, but ultimately it provided a fun open world experience for fans who were longing for a new Wii U game to play.
Summary: McCain's misadventures carry him through a number of locales in LEGO City, which are broken up in to districts so it's not quite the open world that players would be used to, with very long load times breaking up the action. Each district has plenty to offer in terms of collectibles.
