YMMV / Lego City Undercover

  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The music that plays during the very final level. An orchestra and epic chorus are hardly what would be expected from a Lego game, but are perfectly fitting and awesome all the same. And what is the chorus chanting? "LEGO, LEGO, LEGO // CI- TY, CI- TY"
  • Game Breaker: The stud multiplier Red Bricks are easy to find and make the Lego City Hero ratings a matter of getting one purple stud. Thankfully, a lot of red bricks cannot be found until the endgame, or after the story is over.
    • One of the last upgrades, the jetpack, makes it possible to skip large sections of the main world's free runs.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Why weren't any of the characters in The LEGO Movie? They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot as seen in the game is Chase a master builder and it had been fun seeing his department rebelling, and Dunby sticking up to where the money comes from. But they never show up, making one worried what might have happened to them.
    • Oh, thatís easy to explain. The world of The Lego Movie is made up of sets owned by Finnís father. He likely just hasnít bought the Lego City sets prior to the events of the movie. Simple as that.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: "Blue" the fill-in for Red from Shawshank Redemption was asked if he was "Free, man" To which "Blue" denies... Morgan Freeman as a LEGO minifigure, eh?
  • Moral Event Horizon: Forest Blackwell deciding to launch his rocket, which would have certainly killed many people had Chase not put up a forcefield around the exhaust fumes.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Forrest Blackwell's Evil Laugh during his video-screen meeting with Rex. It just keeps going on and on...
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: This game is often treated as a Spiritual Successor to the LEGO Island series. On top of that, it's a "cops & robbers" game. This was a perfect opportunity to include some classic LEGO Island characters, especially the Brickster... and they somehow missed it!
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: During the final level the scenery that Chase passes while skydiving to earth is nothing short of mindblowing.
