TT Games and Nintendo are set to deliver LEGO City Undercover unto Wii U owners positively starving for new games. This open world romp with a heart of brick features the simple story of a hot shot cop out to catch a ne’er do well who recently escaped from prison.
While collecting, punching and smashing are definitely mechanics that belong in LEGO games, they don’t necessarily feel welcome at all times here.
With some of the older licensed LEGO games (Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Harry Potter, etc.), characters never say a word. I literally laughed audibly during almost every cutscene in the game, and that’s something that no other title has ever done for me before. Saying that this is probably the most value-packed game to release for the Wii U is entirely fair, and gamers looking to get bang for their buck should absolutely look to this entry in the LEGO franchise as exceptionally valuable. Furthermore, despite being a Wii U title, LEGO City Undercover does not make use of one of the Wii U’s best features. I actually spoke with Loz Doyle, Executive Producer at TT Games, a few weeks back about this game.
You use the GamePad as a map, a GPS and a scanner (that you’ll hold up and aim at your TV) on a regular basis. Let’s not mince words here, Wii U owners don’t have much to chose from in the way of games.
With that in mind, LEGO City Undercover is a must-buy for those who want to keep their system in play.
It’s a LEGO game built on Grand Theft Auto concepts with a sense of humor ripped straight from an old Leslie Nielsen movie… what more could you possibly want?
Joey Davidson has been a diehard gamer ever since his dad brought home the family’s NES and a copy of Paperboy. Severed is one hell of a game, complete with addicting mechanics, a bizarre and wonderful story, moments of pure horror and a silent heroine that does the impossible. If you’re going to ask more than $50 for a gaming headset, you have to offer something aside from a microphone and a set of cans.
Trust me, we want Sega to continue working with M2 for as long as both remain in existence.
The ?Star Fox? game fans have been waiting for; however, getting to the experience will require wading through unique controls.
Since building the first large double helices for AMGEN I have received a fair number of emails asking about the sale, renting, or other use of the models. Unfortunately, I have long ago disassembled the big blue-ribboned prototype that I had made, and the two that were AMGEN's property had been given away to hospitals or something.


I still had the basic schematics, and certainly could reconstruct a helix of the original size, but new clients generally found the couple thousand dollar price tag a bit too high. Then, one day, I was approached by an editor of a genetics journal who said that his magazine might have an interest in wanting a photograph of the helix for their cover. Some discussion was made about my possibly rebuilding an unglued helix that I would then photograph myself (since shipping the unglued model would be disastrous). Shortly thereafter, however, I had a revelation: why not build a much smaller version of a DNA helix?
In addition to the obvious benefits of shorter building time, easier shipping, and less cost in materials, I realized that for the cover of a magazine or such, a smaller model might actually look better. Finally (and this is complete LEGO-luck), I did my homework and learned that a DNA helix is supposed to make one complete rotation every 10.5 rods. I have also built a version of this size helix using transparent 1x1 cylinders (the base is also round now).
TT Games took everything they know about making LEGO games and applied that knowledge to a completely open world. LEGO City Undercover has the presence of other open world games like GTA and Saints Row; but, it comes in a package that’s completely friendly to gamers of all ages.
LEGO City Undercover is big, and constantly smashing everything in sight does get a little boring over time. All action is based on things that occur in the universe, so characters mime their way through famous moments in that universe’s fiction. It features voice work for every character in the game; from the main set to the civilians on the streets of the city.
You’ll say, “yeah, I’ll check back here real quick.” Suddenly, that turns into 30 minutes of exploring and random collection. If you’re looking to play this game with your kids, family or a few good friends, cross that item off the list. Based on the way the game was designed, Loyle is right: it doesn’t make sense to have GamePad play.
Or, even better, one player could play as Chase with all of the GamePad mechanics while another would play as the aforementioned Frank Honey. The amount of lag on a wired controller, from moment to moment, can be nearly imperceptible, but those milliseconds add up over time, and those gamers will notice. I expect something like the Wedding Cake to generate a steady stream of inquires (it does), but I never would have guess that a DNA double helix model would be so popular.
Now, I didn't have any pictures of the helices beyond the ones on my website, and certainly none of high enough quality to produce an 8.5" x 11" picture at 300 dpi.


But, I could not guarantee that my photographs would be of the best quality, and, thus, the journal could not guarantee that it would use the images (and I would not be monetarily compensated for my time unless the photos were used).
Even without gluing the model holds together because it is so light (I still glue it so that it will survive shipping). The one editor of the journal likes the new model (and the fact that the cost would be significantly less); however, he is just one of several editors for the journal, and evidently some aren't too keen on the idea of putting a "toy" on the cover. Patent and Trademark Office in the biotechnology division was also interested in the DNA helices; he sent me an email asking if they could rent, buy, or borrow one of the large models. The collecting, the building and the smashing are all present and accounted for, and this game will feel immediately familiar to anyone who’s ever played a LEGO title before. The jokes come as exaggerated moments of action, and everything that happens is based on slapstick gags.
It riffs popular movies like Shawshank Redemption, and it does so with a humor that’s quite similar to something you’d find in a classic Naked Gun flick. Over the course of play, you’ll be directed by waypoints to truck along from mission to mission. Doyle told me it wouldn’t, but he was quick to explain that the gameplay mechanics in the title made offscreen play impossible.
However, GamePad play is such a big selling point for the Wii U that news of its absence is disheartening.
Honey could ride shotgun in vehicles and serve as the Robin to Chase’s Batman in combat, all the while cracking awesome jokes. The load times are terrible, there’s no multiplayer and a few aspects haven’t aged too well, but the game itself is absolutely charming.
I was content to build one as planned and count the rods per turn afterward to see how close I came. Perhaps driving was gimped to be friendlier for younger gamers, but folks looking for solid responsiveness in LEGO cars will be disappointed.
However, doing only that becomes practically impossible as tons of distractions start shouting at you. AMGEN had failed to tell me during the original construction that DNA molecules are supposed to twist to the right as one goes up; I had built the large versions backward (I never studied genetics in high school or college, so I knew nothing about DNA, really).
