LEGO City Undercover

LEGO City Undercover is a brand new open-world Lego game for the Wii U, putting players into the blocky shoes of detective Chase McCain, a rugged cop patrolling the mean streets of a Lego Metropolis.

Read Susan Arendt's full preview of LEGO City Undercover here.

Susan Arendt: In the level I played, Chase has to track down three bank robbers after they've fled the scene of their latest heist, so my first task was to hop into my police car and speed off after the crooks.
Which was a little harder than I'd anticipated. Either the controls are a little wonky or my understanding of automotives is, but I couldn't keep that thing in a straight line no matter what I did. Two things helped make up for my terrible driving. There was a trail of green studs on screen showing me the path the robber's car had taken, and the map on the Wii U controller screen showed not only a green line tracing his projected course through the streets, but also a red dot pintpointing his location in real time. My driving wasn't good enough to catch up in straight pursuit, but by following the map on the Wii U controller, I was able to get ahead of him and cut him off. I had to crash into the crook's car several times before taking after him on foot, then knocking him down with a dramatic foot sweep.
