Excerpt: All this time I was thinking it was the Indy, the Darth Vader, the Batman, the Aragorn and the Legolas. You’d think I would have wised up when I found myself enjoying a Lego Harry Potter. I don’t know a Hogwarts from a quidditch and yet there I was Harry Pottering it up, collecting spells, hoovering up studs, and exploring some sort of kid wizard academy. And now here I am supergrooving on Lego Undercover City, a game divorced entirely from unLego licensing.
Excerpt: It’s like James Bond with Legos! Lego City Undercover is the first new Nintendo series in a long time. And since it’s an open-world game, you can go where you want in a city inspired by San Francisco (and later Miami and Manhattan). Lego City as toys started in 2005, but the series really began with Lego Land back when your dad was a kid. And the reason it’s been around so long is that it is really imaginative (like 2012’s The Mine set of toys).
Pros: Open world for kids; scanner mode feels real; sometimes really funny.
Cons: Terribly long load times; needs better writing; sometimes really unfunny.
Excerpt: LEGO City Undercover carries the weight of the Wii U on its shoulders. It’s an unfair position to be in. Other than the odd eShop game or random port here or there, Nintendo’s newest console hasn’t seen a worthy title since the day it released back in November. Four months is a long time to go without any new games – especially within a new console’s launch window – and ever since Ubisoft decided to delay releasing Rayman Legends, all eyes have been on Nintendo’s first...
Pros: A game on the scale of Grand Theft Auto, but appropriate for all ages, It’s really the culmination of all of the previous LEGO franchise games, featuring bits and pieces from previous entries, while creating its own identity, LEGO City is huge , with tons of stuff to do and items to find, Its sense of humor is freaking adorable, and the lack of license really gives the story room to breathe
Cons: Controls — driving, especially — are still as unrefined as ever, LEGO games are way too easy, and this is no exception, It can be a little tricky juggling so many costumes at once, AI is dumb as plastic bricks, Loading can take up to a minute — or more
Excerpt: LEGO City Undercover, which is exclusive to Nintendo’s Wii U, was one of the driving forces behind our purchase of the console and it has been a long and much anticipated wait since first seeing its demo at a preview event late last year. Continuing the open world gameplay design first introduced in LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, this LEGO title presents players an opportunity to explore the world of the popular LEGO City vehicle and play sets.
Conclusion: The GamePad is also the portal through which other characters call you up, their little avatars appearing on the small screen and their voices coming through the speakers. It’s a simple but cool addition and the interplay between the GamePad and television is enjoyable. Elsewhere, you can use the pad by holding it up to the screen and scanning the city whenever Chase is investigating someone.
Excerpt: Depois das adaptações de diversos franchises célebres, esta aventura em nome próprio deixa bastante esperança relativamente ao filme Lego que estreará em breve. Não sabemos se as coisas resultarão no grande ecrã mas sem dúvida que tudo corre sobre rodas em termos de videojogos. Tenho que admitir que comecei a jogar esta série pela ordem errada, com o título que saiu na 3DS .
Pros: Imenso humor e diversão não só para presenciar mas também para jogar!
Cons: Efeito de aliasing torna as sombras pixeladas | Loadings bastante demorados.
Summary: Det er altid farligt at smide om sig med alt for store ord. Det er også altid farligt at kalde et spil for 'det bedste'. Det er jeg dog ikke bange for her. Lego City Undercover er det bedste drengespil, der nogensinde er udgivet. Har du en dreng i alderen 6-10 år, er du nødt til at købe det - og en Wii U. Afgang!
