Quick thoughts on Lego City Undercover

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.
