    Humorous, charming, and simple

    The Nintendo Switch version of this game does not lose much in terms of picture quality and performance compared to its new Xbox One and PS4 counterparts. The gameplay is very simple, you may or may not enjoy this. Where this game stood out to me was its surprising 2 player mode. I did not expect an open world game, even though it is a Lego game, to have two player support where each player can roam around independently from each other in split-screen. However, there are significant frame rate issues when going to this two player mode in Lego City itself. Frames go down to what it seems like 15 per second. When you're playing with someone else, it's a great new experience, so I forgave this technical hiccup. Where I won't forgive this game, however, are its ridiculously long load times for a cartridge based game. Maybe I'm spoiled with a history of polished first party Nintendo games that try their best to make sure loading times are something you shouldn't have to bat an eyelash at. But waiting close to a minute for game startup, then around 30 seconds for going from the open Lego City to a more enclosed space or level (and vice versa) is a bit disappointing. Especially considering the amount of time Warner Bros. had to port this game to the new generation of consoles from Wii U. This games main character, Chase McCain, is a great one. The cutscenes and dialogue are humorous and charming, and are very similar in comedic style to the Lego movies (The Lego Movie, Lego Batman). Which I really enjoyed. Chase made me want to return to this world and see what'd he say next on his career redemption mission of stopping the bad guy "Rex Fury". The game is great for kids 10 and up, (and arguably made for kids in that age area). But an adult can have fun with it as well thanks to its silly story and fun characters. The two player mode is a fun way to play, even if it is slowed down due to technical issues. Have fun! I'd reccomend you add it to your growing Nintendo switch library, the portability of the console itself really adds to the overall experience of the game. Note: this review was made with an online update (around 256 megabytes I believe) at the launch of the game. There may be additional updates later on that improve the technical issues I mentioned above.

    This game is downright comedy! I find myself cracking up every time I play it by myself. However it truly shines when you play with someone else. Me and my 8 year old son are having a blast playing through it together. I didn't give it a 5 star only because I noticed the frames drop when playing multiplayer (hopefully will be fixed through a patch update). The fun factor allows me to forgive the frame dropping and the fact that the game plays at 1080p when docked is pretty awesome.

    Glitchy, Slow Loads, but the Gameplay is There

    It's gotten to the point where I don't grab a Lego game and expect some major glitches, and this is no different. I've had glitches while playing that have ranged from minor annoyances to forcing me to reset the game. However, if you can be patient with the glitches (and you'll need to learn to), the gameplay is quite fun. I grabbed this game because my wife and I wanted a game to play together, and this definitely fits that bill. I am certain that the replay value of this game is very high, as I can't imagine how long it would take to try to 100% this one. If you're looking for a sandbox game that is a kid-friendly version of GTA, then don't pass this one up.

    I'm just starting out with this game but so far it plays well and I'm having fun checking out the city. People compare it to a low-key GTA and I agree.
