When chief bad boy Rex Fury escapes from prison, Lego City soon finds itself in the grip of a relentless crime-wave. Coincidence? Undercover cop Chase McCain thinks not, and sets off on a brick-tacular adventure to bring peace back to the city.
Like a Lego 007, he comes equipped with all manner of crazy disguises and cool gadgets - whether it's dressing up as a robber to prise your way through locked doors or scanning the area for clues with your high-tech Police Communicator, Chase always has something new up his sleeve.
With the classic slapstick Lego humour, and the familiar mix of smash everything in sight and simple platforming, Lego City Undercover is bound to be a winner. After all, who can resist the charm of a Lego game? Not us.
