LEGO City: Undercover Discussion (Nintendo Wii U) [game]
 
8.73/10 from 16 user ratings

Welcome to the official discussion thread for LEGO City: Undercover on the Wii U!

To start, please add this game to your log, add it to your collection (if applicable), and (when you are ready) rate it using the link above!

I love Legos. Always have. Always will. As I get older and discover the little bit of disposable income, I've found that besides video games, I occasionally will splurge on a Lego set. There's just something about the miniature world of Legos. Their mimicry of the real or fantasy worlds we're used to is something special. This new game, which releases in less than a week now, looks to take the Lego concept, strip it of it's usual franchise licensing, and do something in a complete new direction.

I just read a really wonderfully thorough review from Eurogamer and I wanted to post it to start this discussion thread. The game is just a few days away... are you getting it? Tell me how you like it! (or don't like it)

In addition, an important note for those downloading. I'll let the original speaker do the talking (also seen in the thread below).

For those interested in downloading the game, apparently you will need to have an external HD. Weird.

Definitely a game to own so far. I can't believe it got a 5/10 for a review from one magazine!

Gaaahhh, I'm going nuts reading these comments. I wanted to wait until the girlfriend and I moved in together before getting this as she loves the LEGO games. This is the first one that really appeals to me, though. Perhaps I'll download now, just to make sure it's done downloading in July...

Not their fault though. They never had that issue with their units when they tested the game.

@Guillaume

I never said it was a rational response. :p

The lack of messaging when the game loses its connection legitimately grinds my gears, though. I've set a few scores that would have had me close to or at the top of my leaderboard only to have nothing stick because the game lost its connection and I had no idea.

Bah I'm done derailing. Lego should be done redownloading... eventually.

Got that email too, awesome! Not sure if it'll go to my card or my Nintendo account. Since I paid with both =/ Hopefully goes to eShop so I can just apply it to Monster Hunter 3.

Got the game downloaded, installed, and ready for gaming today after work!

Fun and funny game, so far!

I'm pretty sure one of the gags was lifted from BitF, though. That one about George Faratabensonberry seems awfully familiar...

I made it to the big city area and wow It's so fun to explore and I found a Mario reference when he gets a star + music playing! This game is so good.

@Pokefreak911

Edge magazine... can't really say I'm surprised

@VofEscaflowne
Yeah...unexpected that isn't.

@kriswright
Or "Guy Incognito" (and "Joey Jojo Jr. Shabadoo") from The Simpsons. Always a funny joke though.

I just found one of the hidden "?" boxes. For some reason I wasn't expecting Mario references, but there they are!

@ploot

I got one of those earlier too!

I just found another one that's really neat

Oi! I can't wait for this! Gamestop wont get them till thursday! They shipped today. Amazon had shipping issues too. Nintendo intentionally pushing digital (as I've heard)? Hmm...

Pretty fun and humorous game. I can't say I'm wild about the controls (jumping seems off and buttons don't seem to behave as they should when pressed) but it's a fun game. Great sense of humor (pokes fun at itself with a progress bar comment very early in game) and I'm more excited about exploring the entire city than playing the story. The city is gorgeous and really is full of life. A LOT of different kinds of areas in the city.

I think this is a winner.

@boodyup
Yeah, the city is great. I'm doing the missions rather quickly because I want all the disguises for exploration.

@DrFinkelstein
But I got the retail disc on Monday, and I'm not too far from you.

@ploot

Canada probably traded maple syrup for proper shipping.

@ploot

How far are you? I played a bunch today but only did one mission It's so easy to get lost in doing side stuff and just running around.

@VofEscaflowne
I'm on mission 8 I think. I also get distracted but running into the "you can't do this yet" things puts me back on-track. I will try to 100% this game!

@DrFinkelstein
Poutine smothered in maple syrup.

That reminds me. When I stopped in Kentucky on my way to Florida awhile back they had "Maple flavoured syrup" in the hotel's breakfast room. It was gross and wrong.

I tried to get this today at Gamestop while getting Monster Hunter. They didn't have it yet. Blast!!
Posted: 03/20/13, 12:21:23
@ploot

Unless you get authentic stuff from the store, a lot of syrup in the states is essentially "maple-flavored high fructose corn syrup". Unfortunately.
