If you're itching to explore the open world of LEGO City Undercover and don't have a Wii U, there's hope yet, as the prequel, titled Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins is headed to to the 3DS on April 26th.
This is an entirely different game set before the events of the console version of Undercover, and deals with Chase McCain and his rookie years, before he became legendary.
I've been playing Undercover for about a week now, and although it still retains the same charm as the LEGO games you know and love, I feel like a lot of it is a wasted opportunity.
Whereas LEGO Batman 2pushed the envelope in multiple ways, Undercover doesn't feel like quite a leap, amidst some fairly generic story missions.
