If you’ve already played the original LEGO City Undercover on Wii U, then there is little reason to pick up this re-release. However, if you were one of the many who missed it the first time around then LEGO City Undercover remains a hilarious riff on police procedurals, built upon a GTA-for-juniors open world blueprint, and stuffed with enjoyable side missions and collectibles to hunt down. The addition of split-screen play, cursory in its execution as it may be, only makes the game more appealing to players who would prefer to experience LEGO City Undercover with a friend riding shotgun. And what's a good police story without a partner in crime-fighting?

The definitive version of the hidden gem in the Lego games catalogue, although the formula is so overused by now it no longer feels quite as fresh as it did.

For fans of the series who've perhaps tired of the ceaseless march of movie tie-ins, Lego City Undercover is a hilarious, expansive, brick-infused open-world experience that's begging to be explored.

This is the same Lego City Undercover we played in Wii U, four years ago, with the only addition of coop multiplayer. A fun adventure, which lasts more than 10 to 15 hours and have lots of collectibles and sense of humor. On the downside, it feels technically outdated.

Lego City Undercover is a very enjoyable game for all ages and with a lot of possibilities, but it has some poorly used elements that could have been much better.

A game that stands the test of time with little improvements to its original formula on Wii U.

Apart from some technical limits on Switch, even today, after four years from Wii U release, LEGO City Undercover remains one of the best LEGO games ever.

LEGO City Undercover was already a great game when it released on Wii U four years ago and this new release takes that and tweaks it just a bit. The overall experience is a little smoother and the addition of co-op is a nice touch, and even though there's nothing substantially new here, those that missed out before will want to check out LEGO City Undercover this time around.
