Review: Lego City Undercover
Michael Plant is chief editor and writer of gaming ezine and blog GamesCatalyst.com, as well as editor of 'The Independent'’s games review printed in the Saturday supplement 'Information'. Established in February 2011, Games Catalyst endeavours to bring its unique brand of fact and satire to the videogaming community and, in tandem with 'The Independent', hopefully turn a few non-believers on to gaming while we’re at it.

McCain's adventure is akin to GTA for kids, as the knowingly clichéd action cop
takes to the open world streets as he looks to throw his arch nemesis Rex Fury
back behind bars.
Anyone familiar with previous Lego games will be instantly at home with the gameplay – indeed, despite the more open feel Undercover rarely feels any different – though at least any number of film references, from The Matrix to Titanic, inject some humour into proceedings. The Wii U’s Gamepad is used to good effect too, as Chase scans buildings and follows clues. A competent, if predictable, effort then and one that fans of the Lego series will enjoy exploring.
