I've been collecting hundreds of thousands of Lego studs in Lego City Undercover for the Wii U, which releases March 18. Here are some thoughts on the game.
There is a lot to do in this open-world Lego title from TT Games. While the story takes roughly 12-15 hours to complete, the time it takes to 100 percent the game - from purchasing more than 100 vehicles to completing car robberies - could be triple that. The city isn't huge, but is filled to the brim with details that's begging to be explored.
Lego City Undercover features a memorable cast and top-notch voice work, so the story never gets boring. There are numerous movie tie-ins like "Titanic" and "The Shawshank Redemption" that may get lost on the younger audience but will give adults a chuckle.
However, loading times are long, from entering specific areas of the city to even just entering the game. There's a nice musical beat on the loading screen, but it'll haunt your dreams after a while.
