In Lego City Undercover for the Wii U, gamers are allowed to play as the Lego character Chase McCain who is an undercover detective. The player can wear many different during the game and use many different abilities, in an attempt to defeat Rex Furry, who lies behind much of the criminal activity in the Lego City.

The game plays somewhat like a Lego version of the popular Grand Theft Auto series inasmuch that it allows the player to roam freely anywhere in the city, and to interact with items, vehicles, and game characters. However, the main difference with this type of free roam gameplay is that the player will be attempting to maintain law and order throughout the levels as opposed to creating chaos. The Wii U Gamepad comes in handy when locating criminals in the game's levels, for example, the Gamepad will scan and locate enemies and display them to the player so they're not caught off their guard. There are also many other examples of times when the player will need to rely on the scanner to find enemies that are difficult to locate.

When playing the game, the player can drive various vehicles, build specific objects with Lego bricks and put on such disguises as the Robber Suit which allows the player to pick padlocks. Other types of disguise the player might need to wear are the Firefighter Suit for entering burning buildings or a Construction Worker disguise for building objects. Another ability the player may use when building is the ability to create level warping pipes similar to those found in other popular Nintendo games. These level warping pipes may then be used to get to areas of the level that are inaccessible without them.

The vehicles the player will encounter are cars, trucks, helicopters, fast cars and motorbikes and many more from a total of over 100. While some vehicles may not be available at the start of gameplay, they will be available to the player eventually.

There are many other features of the game that make it an exciting Lego platform. The Wii U Gamepad will not only allow gamers to use it as scanner for locating enemies but it may also be used mapping their own positions, receiving hidden clues and also for important mission updates. All in all its pretty much a simple game but with plenty of fun elements.
