    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.

    My 10 year old loves this game. He has it for the WiiU and said he needed it on the Switch, which tells me its replayable. That is my definition of a slam dunk game.

    great game. I bought this game for the PS4 and my son is obsessed with it. I decided to buy it for him on the switch and it works well. framerate drops at times but children don't notice. It is a fun game for children. My son has spent many hours and still has not gotten bored of it

    Kid loves it and I did too. Its like a child version of grand theft auto. You can roam on your own, do missions, and it has many side things to find.

    To be honest the Wii U version is awesome with the extra experience in gameplay. If you miss this one on the Wii U, the switch port is a must to have the chance to play it.

    I picked up this game for a variety of reasons, although I own it for the Wii U. I chose this version because it comes with all the dlc, which I did not purchase for Wii U, extra tracks, characters, and so on. Besides all those added bonuses and a graphically superior version, I wanted something my 3 year old daughter could play with me. It has handicaps to keep the acceleration on and something so her character never falls off the track. It was the perfect scenario for me and her because all she needs to do is steer the kart, because of that I also bought the steering wheels and turned on motion control for her to make it easier. The purchase met my wants and now my daughter is addicted. I highly recommend it!

    LEGO City: Undercover

    Posted .

    Overall, LEGO City: Undercover doesn't quite stand up as well in its 2017 form as it did when it originally came to Wii U; series improvements have come in the years since that leave this one looking slightly dusty in comparison. There are also some technical issues that hold it back, with odd graphical blemishes - a pity as the updated engine is generally an improvement - along with performance issues in co-op and handheld mode. That said, played as a console game in single player, like its original, this still offers an easy-going and slightly anarchic fun time. The same crazy storytelling, set pieces and scenarios are still here, as are the cheesy jokes riffing on famous movies. LEGO City: Undercover's case isn't quite as convincing as it was in 2013, but it still has plenty to offer.

    Good open game for kids, with two player co-op

    Lego City Undercover is a pretty good open world game for the Nintendo Switch for kids. I haven't played it too far, but it features costumes for different skills and ability to drive various vehicles around the city. It's been compared to GTA, and that's a pretty good description as it's story driven open world game with vehicles. Compared to the first-party Nintendo Switch games, this game feels a bit sluggish as it runs at 30 fps (or less when there's a bunch of action going on). Story line is full of cop parodies and jokes, so entertaining for kids and adults. It's a good game to play around with family to watch and to take turns (up to two players at a time!) and the non-playing family can enjoy the comedy.
