For whileLEGO Harry Potter, Lord Of The Rings and Batman are all well and good, it's nice to see the LEGO series branching out with this tongue in cheek take on open world games like Grand Theft Auto.
You play as Chase McCain, an undercover detective who, armed with clever disguises, has to look for clues in a bid to stop the fiendish Rex Fury and end his crime wave in LEGO City.
Rex Fury has escaped his prison Albatross Island but Chase McCain can use his scanning skills on the Wii U GamePad to find super bricks which he can use to build a boat to take him to the island.
To get into the prison, McCain must use his disguises.
The LEGO City Undercover UK release date will fall in early 2013.
