It has the usual tongue in cheek approach to storytelling. Here though, rather than famous movie franchises, it's the police drama that the game is sending up for comedic value. It also pokes fun at games like Grand Theft Auto, without straying into questionable territory. As such it is a family-friendly alternative to that kind of police-crime experience.
This was originally launched on Wii U and has been ported and upgraded on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The Nintendo 3DS version is a slightly cut down experience but still offers an impressive open-world Lego game that you can play on the go.
Rated for younger players in the US. Rated EVERYONE 10+ by ESRB with cartoon violence and crude humour. Players use an assortment of "cartoony" firearms (over-sized lasers/blasters, and pistols) to stun enemies or douse them in colour; players can also grab or throw enemies to the ground in hand-to-hand combat. In some driving sequences, players can slam into fleeing vehicles, causing them to break apart into Lego pieces. A handful of sequences depict slapstick-style and bathroom humour: characters emitting flatulence; bird droppings falling on a character's head; a character getting kicked in the crotch.
8+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. This skews a little older than other Lego games with the city theme. You need to do a bit more running around from mission to mission, and the lack of super-hero, Harry Potter or Star Wars incentive to progress means that players need to have more robust inquisitiveness.
