Lego City Undercover Review | Quarter to Three

Tom Chick: "The WiiU gimmicks are pretty slick and unfortunately indispensible, which means you probably won’t be playing this on another system. You mostly have a map in your lap as you play, but sometimes you use the gamepad to peer into the city. You can even take screenshots and post them to the Miiverse, where they’re slightly less trapped than they would be if they were only on your WiiU. I should probably resent the WiiU gimmickry, because this is another rare game that’s far too good to be trapped on a Nintendo system." (Lego: City Undercover, Wii U) 5/5

I don't know how to feel about that.

I know how you should feel. That with the above statement the reviewer just ruined an objective, unbiased balanced review and therefore for me at least, nullified his scoring, whether it had of been a 1 or 5. It's unfortunate that zelda is trapped on nintendo consoles. And metroid, etc!!?? Here's my absurd comment for the day: "Breasts are amazing and engage my interest, keeping me occupied for hours. It's just unfortunate that they're trapped on the female form..." #lazygamesjournalism

That's an odd comparison...

No one thinks the breast analogy was odd?... okay... Didn't say I didn't agree with him...

You got to it quicker than I did, at least. I had to go through some of his utterly insipid reviews before I came to the realization that this guy truly is full of himself, and yet is an utter idiot.

One of the best games of the generation? Give it a 1 or a 2, and COMPLETELY AND INTENTIONALLY misconstrue the game's purpose.

Something that isn't too different from the other dozen in the franchise? 5 out of 5, without a moment's hesitation.

That's Tom Chick in a nutshell.

Honestly, I only came here to vote the site down; I didn't expect him to prove me right.

I couldn't agree more.

Tom Chick is known as being one of the worst reviewers on the planet. he constantly deals out 5/5s to average or below average games and 2/5s to universally critically acclaimed games. and im serious when I say that he does it CONSTANTLY, to the point where there is no mistaking his dishonesty.

whether it is for hits or to satisfy his own hipster sensibilities, his reviews are not to be trusted AT ALL. he is an attention hungry, arrogant, dishonest, pretentious moron with a pinball fetish.

im not sure what friends he has a metacritic to get them to include his reviews from his irrelevant little site/blog, but it is insulting to everyone's intelligence.

Well, i almost clicked the link...
I was just about to click on what seemed like an informative, unbiased review... Then I read the last sentence of that introductory paragraph - what the hell? I don't care what other wisdoms the review might eschew, the "this is another rare game that’s far too good to be trapped on a Nintendo system" is just about asinine enough to put me off.

I picked the game up, and LOVE it....It looks slick, the gameplay is GREAT, and the gamepad is an amazing tool for this and other games. I like fun games this one is fun and makes my smile whenever I pick up the gamepad. As far as other systems getting it, will Rayman I think is going to be far better on Wii U, but PS360 are getting it now too, so who knows. Another note on Rayman before the whole situation with it being pushed back for Nintendo, I remember reading something about it possibly using the Vita/PS3 combo, back then they said "If" we port it.

"This is not the Wii U savior you are looking for" - no jedi mind trick needed.

Nintendo needs to announce and promote a new Zelda U or Smash Bros.U at E3 before the PS4 and XboxNext steal the show from Nintendo.
