Pros: Great open world. Lots of personas to build up your character. Take control of several vehicles. Some funny moments and neat set pieces.
Cons: Load times? This game has one of the longest load times of any 3DS game. The world is in 6? parts. So when you cross a boundary, you will tire of the loading. The fighting is unfortunately a joke. Button mash until they all get arrested.
Also: I was at first trying to collect all the items even after finishing the story, but that gets old quickly as some items require some fancy path. That path is sometimes impossible to see because sometimes the camera is locked and in scan mode, the graphics wash out.
The extra items won't help at all. They are there for extra fun, but the fun drops off after the story is done. I'm use to completing previous LEGO titles to 100%, but I'm done with this one at 38%.
I wish there was more to the story. I wish there was a New Game+ with harder enemies and keeping collected items, etc.

I can only review this game from an observers point of view as I get what my 7 year-old grandson requests (within reason, of course). We waited the six weeks for the April 23rd release of Lego City Undercover and three days later he was happily gaming away. I asked a few times if he needed some help and I got, "No thanks", which was great for me because I'm not the best at helping. He loves this game, and after two weeks is still as enthusiastic as the first played day.
