LEGO City: Undercover Review (NintendoLife)

"Between the lucrative high profile movie tie-ins and people begging for Zelda and Mega Man editions, it's sometimes easy to overlook the fact that The LEGO Company cut its teeth on its non-licensed playsets. From fantasy wonderlands to more ordinary examples, the building bricks were an ever-popular force with children and big kids alike long before LEGO Star Wars rolled along.
Though there have been several games based on LEGO's own series – 1997's LEGO Island often evokes murmurs of admiration – the licensed titles are still top of the blocks. LEGO City Undercover could be the game to begin deconstructing that set up. Based on the LEGO City line, which sees firemen, farmers and foremen transformed into heroes of a more relatable nature, TT Fusion's title takes the formula that has been popularised by licenced properties and applies it to a series of LEGO's own design.", writes NintendoLife. (Lego: City Undercover, Wii U) 8/10
