    @kalel LCU is more like Saints' Row.
    LCU is Police Squad with GTA being Sopranos.

    I suppose those 7 months until GTAV launches will fly by. I'll have long finished this by the time GTAV comes out.

    @beastmaster Oh and that dinosaur is totally rideable from what i've heard. Sweet.

    It may tonally be more like Saints Row, but I don't think that changes my point at all. GTA V being right round the corner has a significant effect on the impact this game might have as a system seller imho, particularly as GTA V isn't coming to the WiiU.

    GTAV is 7 months away which is a bit further away than around the corner to me and it appeals to a different crowd predominantly. I think the two games will have minimal impact on each other's sales.

    LCU is family orientated and GTAV is aimed at adolescents and adults. If i was a GTA fan i'd probably end up getting both.

    I don't think this was ever going to be a system seller although people are saying this game was a big draw for purchasing the Wii-U but no-one is saying it's the sole reason. That's just Eurogamer chasing clicks.

    I think they're different enough that LCU won't lose sales to GTAV, but as great as it looks I can't see it being a system seller. Should still get reasonable enough sales though, if they remember to market it well, and maybe even get a sequel.

    Who knows though, it's all guesswork at this stage. All I really want is a fun game :)

    I think a bigger reason why this isn't going to be a major system selling exclusive is because there are 3 or 4 other lego games released on every platform each year.

And I imagine these people have a wii u already.
    I think you have it backwards. It's the "mature" games that are made for children. Adult gamers are secure enough to look at games objectively and appreciate them for their mass appeal.

    Those cutscenes are pure Lego City (unsurprisingly, I guess, but huh) - my nephews have got a Lego City promotional DVD which is pure slapstick, just like the cutscenes there. They love that DVD, and they love their Wii (especially the TT Lego games on that), so they'll be all over this if they ever see it. I can see next Christmas being a little expensive.

    Lego City Undercover walkthrough The game has a 1080p option; but what worries me are the huge loading times.

    It looks rather bland and lacking in personality probably its just not for my age range as there is nothing I see in it thats appealing.

    Has any one read the review in the mag, what do they perceive to be its main failings?

    Bland uninteresting city - no fun to explore.
    Poor driving physics
    Slowdown
    Pop in
    Collectables only showing when close to them
    Poor use of Wii U controller (basically just a mini map display)

    This right here is an example of my number one pet hate on gaming forums. One reviewer gave that Lego game a 3/10, and (I assume) another Edge reviewer gave Undercover a different score.

    Different people, different opinions, just happen to be writing for the same publication. Even if they were written by the same person, it's still not always comparable.

    So, you appear to believe Edge et al review games as a collective. It doesn't work like that.

    That's the approach that Edge take though, they don't put names to reviews (unless its changed in the last couple of years?).

    That is still the case. Always thought it was strange for reasons such as this.

    I was trying to say they have form for marking down Lego games, Batman Lego was only a 6 as well....

    Yet they gave aliens a 5/10

    Long load times, pop in and slowdown in a 2013 technology lego title? I seem to remember it doesn't have online play either?

    But EDGE gave Lego: LOTR 6/10. As a rough guide to my kid's comparative play times of the Lego games that is about right.

    I don't have, and don't see myself getting, a Wii U but I had hopes that the core premise of a free roaming Lego game may appear on other platforms. A Lego game where building was more central than the general destruction that goes on in the many games - Lego Nuts n Bolts if you like, would get a good reception in my house!
