Summary: My kids REALLY liked this game but only for a week or so. Then they dropped it like a rock and I don't think they've played it in months. So if you're looking for something to hold their interest long term, I'd look elsewhere. For reference, my kids are girls ages 9 & 10.

Summary: This is a unique game. I haven't played any like it on Wii U or anywhere else. It is definitely a Wii U only game and for good reason. This game takes amazing advantage of the second screen. Even Nintendo hasn't done as well in my mind. First a little back story.
Summary: Good game I like it the kids love it, however the driving controls are just awful. The game is like GTA for kids except you don't kill people and play as an undercover cop, even when driving down the sidewalk the people jump out of the way.
Summary: Now that I've finished the campaign, I can safely say that LEGO CiTY Undercover is without a doubt, my favorite "kids game," ever made. About 3/4th's of the jokes aren't even aimed towards kids.

Whereas most Lego cash-ins either struggle to improve poor franchise formulas or reiterate popular ones at the price of their originality, Traveler’s Tale’s...
Summary: If you like the concept of GTA, but don't want to be a "scum-bag" character, this game offers a great alternative. Don't assume that this is a "kiddie" game. Yes, it is a clean lego theme, but the writing is best appreciated by someone who grew up watching cop shows and action movies of the 1970s,...
Summary: Not a Good Way to Begin the Chase, Chase I have a soft spot in my heart for LEGO games. I know they’re simplistic, silly and primarily for children, but I’ve still had hours of fun with Traveller’s Tales’ most successful franchise.
