LEGO City Undercover The Chase Begins 

 

I have to work really hard not to geek out completely over a new Lego game. Lego City Undercover on the Wii U was a lot of fun. So I was extremely eager to play and review LEGO City Undercover The Chase Begins on the Nintendo 3DS. This hand held game is the prequel to the Wii U home console game.

The more I thought about the prequel idea the more I liked it. See the areas do not need to be as developed if they are done in the past. This works marvelously in a hand held version which is going to be smaller. There are multiple loading spots in LEGO City Undercover The Chase Begins that were not in the home console version.

Plot points referenced in LEGO City Undercover on the Wii U are shown in their full glory in LEGO City Undercover The Chase Begins on the 3DS. I am not allowed to reference any of them by name. I can tell you that if you liked the Wii U version, you will love LEGO City Undercover The Chase Begins. I personally loved seeing how things happened in the past.

The missions in LEGO City Undercover The Chase Begins are shorter which is perfect for a hand held version. There are plenty of things to find, unlock, and discover in LEGO City Undercover The Chase Begins. Beating the game is only the beginning since there is so much more to explore.

LEGO City Undercover The Chase Begins shakes things up in terms of cars. In the Wii U version we could run into other vehicles all day long and take no damage. LEGO City Undercover The Chase Begins corrects this. We lose hearts as we smash into other vehicles. Which removes one of the easy ways to collect super bricks.

Speaking of super bricks. There are less of them in LEGO City Undercover The Chase Begins. The super build locations cost less so it is evened out quite nicely. We run into a variety of new and previously met characters in LEGO City Undercover The Chase Begins.

I would love to find out what happened to Chase McCain between LEGO City Undercover The Chase Begins and LEGO City Undercover. Maybe that will come out in a sequel in coming years. The fighting in LEGO City Undercover The Chase Begins is pretty simple, and actually gets boring. Boss fights are a little more thought provoking.

LEGO City Undercover The Chase Begins has some voice acting, and other spots where we have to read the text. There is humor in LEGO City Undercover The Chase Begins, but less memorable than it was in LEGO City Undercover. There were no stand out moments of humor like the Wii version had. We do not go undercover in LEGO City Undercover The Chase Begins. We stay a police officer the whole time (we do change suits for new skills). That means we act more honorably throughout this entire 3DS game.
