LEGO City Undercover busts into PC

GTA meets Sabotage, but child-friendly

While the LEGO games kept bouncing along merrily with their adventures based on movies and comic books, one interesting one skipped PC. Released on Wii U in 2013, LEGO City Undercover [official site] was an open-world LEGO 'em up with an original (well, non-licensed) story styled after silly cop action movies. Grand Theft Auto meets the Sabotage video but child-friendly. You can see for yourself, as LEGO City Undercover finally arrived on PC today.

See: cops!

LEGO City Undercover stars Chase McCain, a cop sent undercover to catch a master criminal Rex Fury. Going undercover handily gives him access to disguises, such as a robber, miner, construction, and astronaut. They variously give abilities including a grappling gun, scans, dynamite, a jackhammer, a jet pack - everything a movie cop needs. It's like how other LEGO games gate abilities to characters, only here McCain can change character simply with a new hat or jacket. Policework! It's got the usual two-player local co-op too.

I'm trying to cajole resident LEGOhead John into telling us Wot he Thinks of it. If you yourself played on Wii U (a system name which sounds a bit like a police siren if you draw out and repeat it enough), go on, tell us all Wot You, Reader Dear, Thought.

LEGO City Undercover is £24.99/29,99€/$39.99 on Steam.
