    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.

    Lego City Undercover for Switch is a port from the original Wii U game. The Wii U game was notorious for extremely long loading times and big frame rate issues. Luckily, this version has somewhat solved both. The load times have gone down to a much more reasonable 20-30 seconds rather than what it as before at up to a minute. There are still frame rate issues, but only in handheld mode. And these issues are nothing that makes the game unplayable, it’s simply just a bit annoying for people who are sticklers for frame rates. In docked mode, the game runs at 1080p. The textures and anti-aliasing are much tighter in the PS4 and Xbox One versions, but that doesn’t mean that the Switch version doesn’t look great in its own right. As for the gameplay, it’s fantastic. Take all of the great puzzle, set pieces from other Lego games and combine it with a GTA style open world but enjoyable for all ages.

    I'll preface this by saying I'm not a big Lego game fan. What I've played so far has been fun and humorous. In single player I've not really noticed frame rate issues. The game looks good, not great but good. There is the option for 2 player local coop but I've not dabbled with it. It does require 2 sets of joycons or a joycon and pro controller combination. The game seems to have a decent amount of length to it. There's a ton of collections to find if collecting is your thing. My largest complaint is the load times. You have a decent load to get into the menu where you can load your game. So whenever you first play there's 2 significant loads that need to happen. Outside of that you'll load whenever you enter certain buildings. With the police station being the most frequent one for me. Overall I enjoy the game. If I had played the Wii u version i would pass on this but as a new experience it's not a bad game to pick up.

    I bought this title originally on the Wii U when it released and it is hands down my favorite LEGO game to date. I love the open world, the characters, the story, and the play on all things TV show cop series. That said the game is not without it's faults, namely the long load times that make a return. But load times are slightly better and feature text dialog with commentary or gameplay hints. With this release being multiplatform and owning a Xbox One S and PS4 Pro, I decided to rebuy for the Switch. Digital Foundry did a comparison and found that the Switch version runs on par with other consoles at 1080p 30fps. The PS4 runs some segments of levels at up to 60fps but not consistently. The gameplay on Switch is great and two player mode is fun, even on the go. The enhanced edition looks beautiful featuring time of day lighting and enhanced textures, with the Switch having slightly lower shadow texture and reflection quality. There are even codes available to unlock the police cruiser and getaway car from the actual LEGO toys that were available in the first game. As far as new content there isn't really much to speak of, but the gameplay has been refined and plays great. Co-op mode is a big and welcome addition.

    Lego CIty Undercover is a wonderful game in the franchise. It doesn't have any outside tie-ins, but that allows it to be more open. The graphics are excellent, though the load times can be a bit much. The game controls much like any of the Lego games. If you're a fan of the Lego games, you'll enjoy this one, too!

    very fun game, I've completed it and am now helping my son play through it. I managed to get it while it was on sale which made it an even better deal. The game looks great in both handheld and docked mode. The game does suffer from some slowdown when playing co-op docked and can occasionally stutter in handheld mode if a bunch of stuff explodes etc. but other then that it runs very well and has been tons of fun to play. the humor/jokes are great and the game play and missions are varied. one thing to be aware of is that while it includes most of the nintendo stuff from the wiiu version it is missing the mario hat, also locations for character tokens etc are different so using an older guide to 100% the game may be difficult. basically most if not all locations of where items are located are the same its just that what you actually find in those locations may be differ from what was at that location in the wiiu version. i'm currently stuck at 99.9% due to a glitch which is frustrating but i'm hoping i can figure it out without having to start a new save file.

    I have this for Wii U and bought it again for Switch. It looks better than the Wii U version and plays smoother. The added Multiplayer is also nice. Adults will get a chuckle out of the humor that will go over most kid's heads. Some real funny stuff.

    One of the Best Lego Games

    Lego City undercover remains one of the best Lego games a few years after its initial release on the Nintendo Wii U. The game has an open world that can be compared to Grand Theft Auto—a very child friendly version of that game—but still has the traditional level structure of a Lego game. The open sandbox can be a blast for younger kids who might not have an easy time with a focused mission, but each mission isn't very difficult or complex. My 4-year-old mostly spent his time driving around the city and breaking lego structures apart. It's also pretty funny, especially for kids.

    What an amazingly fun game! My almost 6 year old son has wanted a switch for over a year and was finally gifted one for Christmas. We also got this game because he loves LEGO and we had played (and gotten hooked on) LEGO Jurassic world on PlayStation. He also saw his dad playing GTA one night, so dad let him drive cars around (muted of corse haha). He loved driving cars but at his age we obviously couldn’t let him play it. Then comes LEGO city undercover! Oh man! What a fun open world and great missions! With all the fun of a LEGO game but familiar feel of a classic gta game it was a great game to play as a family. I absolutely recommend this game for kiddos and also adults!

    The lego games are always great fun, with solid gameplay and lots of humor thrown in. This one is no different. There's an open world to explore, plenty to do, and plenty to unlock. Fun for the whole family.

    This game is fun for your kid, it’ll keep them occupied and it’s not that stressful or difficult for them to play with. It’s also fun if you play 2 players and play with them.

    Open world style gameplay, with a Lego twist. The game offers up to 2 players to have fun in a city made from Legos. The story is very well done and offers son humor as well.

    Excellent game, extremely long! I have this on the Wii U but this version for the switch is just the best! It’s a huge upgrade in all ways imaginable, especially the visuals and performance. The fact that you can even have it handheld this time around is just the icing on the cake! Not the best while undocked (handheld) but realistically, that would be asking too much for such a HUGE game. My favorite LEGO game for certain. Must-buy for any who are on the fence.

    My seven-year-old, that loves all things Lego, has gotten a lot of enjoyment out of this game thus far. I have enjoyed playing with her as well, and there is plenty of clean, sardonic humor to keep adults interested as well. This game, even though it is new on the Switch, is not a new title, and thus I don't think a retail price of $60 should be justifiable at this point. Pick it up on sale, or buy it for cheaper on another platform, unless going mobile with it on the Switch is a must for you.

    I've played majority of the Lego games that have been released over the years and typically enjoy them. This game is a different take on Lego games as it focuses solely on Lego and not a film franchise. Overall I think it looks good on the switch and is fun to play. Load times are a bit long but you have to take the limitations of the switch in to account. It's not a PS4 or Xbox but still a fun machine and I love that I can play this game pretty much whenever and wherever.
