5Fun game... New dual player mode!
By Styx_Ray
We already own this on our WiiU system Nintendo Selects: Lego City: Undercover - Wii U.

I bough this again because I never get to play it on the Wii U since two of my kids are on the Wii U constantly. My son is always playing any Lego game and my older daughter is always playing a Zelda title. And when they are on together they play minecraft. What this means is I never get to use the Wii U and I always wanted to play this game. I have played it on the Wii U some and it is fun.

But now with this copy I can play on my Switch... an added bonus is I can now play the game along with my son and we have lots of fun together exploring Lego city. Since he has more play time with the Wii U version he shows me around the city and tell me where we need to go next. But it is loads of fun to now be able to play along side him. For this alone, I am happy I rebought this title.... on sale for $40 here on Amazon. Not as cheap as the Wii U version, but I was happy not to pay full price to rebuy this game for one extra feature.

So which version should you buy if you own a switch and a Wii U? my advice is:
If you wish to save money buy the Wii U version. A bargain at the Nintendo Selects price!!
If you want to play along with your kids buy this version.
If you already own this, wait for it to be on sale again on the switch.

Enjoy!

By Mr Pink
Glitchy and SLOW to load. Nothing making me or the kids want to come back to it after an initial play through.
The game repeatedly crashes during the first mission - and none of us have the patience or interest to reboot and sit through the painful loading, unskippable tutorial and long winded intro. Shame, was looking forward to this.

2Glitchy, glitchy, glitchy....
By Bones
Switch version:

Today, my son asked me, "Dad, can we play Mario Kart?"
I replied, "Sure, buy why not Lego City?"
Son: "Because it's just going to crash."

In single player mode, the game is pretty straight-forward, has only minor issues, and is fairly fun. (Car control could have used some improvements...) And, like anything on the Switch, load times are horrible. What's the point of a cartridge-style system if you still have THREE MINUTE load screens?

Regarless.... I play primarily in two-player mode, with my son.

In two player mode, the game is a glitchy, crash-prone mess.
The expectations for play sessions with my son are, essentially, "how long can we play before it crashes?"...

What's that? You wanted to try to get a Super Brick while the other player was on a stolen car mission? No, not happening. Grab that brick, and... "an error has occurred"...
Oh, you wanted to try two stolen car missions at the same time, because the game gives you the option? No. "an error has occurred"....
Both of you hit "A" to initiate a chicken glide path at the same time? "an error has occurred"...
You wanted to drive a fire truck through the train tunnel while the other player is in a helicopter? "an error has occurred"...
The other player is, apparently, touching the ferry when you opt to take a ride to Albatross Island? "an error has occurred"...
You're on a side mission when the other player decides they need a helicopter? No, you're screwed. Even if the game doesn't crash, it's going to let the clock tick down, the police beat the cram out of you, or the criminals keep running away - whatever the situation may be - while the helicopter is delivered. Oh... That made you drive off a cliff and fail a side mission? Tough luck...
Oh, no. You wanted to teleport to the other player to save some travel time? Yea, you just got dropped through the floor, can't teleport while falling or jumping, and now have to wait until you hit "bottom" and the game crashes...

Not a fan.
It's just irritation after irritation, compounded with INSANELY long loading times.

Update:
It just gets worse as the game progresses. The farther along you get, the more frequent and irritating the game crashes become.
This is an unfinished game, and I'm sick of it.
