Chase McCain, heroic lawman of "Lego City Undercover," struts his stealthy stuff in the game's latest trailer, and meets his match in crime boss Rex Fury.

"I'm not a legend. I'm an ordinary cop," says McCain. But how many policemen get to play on slides or in bouncy castles as part of their routine?
With a track record that includes "Lego Star Wars," "Lego Harry Potter," and the open-world aspirations of "Lego Batman 2", TT Games's latest might not have the movie licensing that its predecessors enjoyed, but instead has a rich heritage to lean on.
Comparisons to the "Grand Theft Auto" open-world series are inevitable, especially given the Lego game's work-in-progress name: a very "Vice City Stories"-esque "Lego City Stories."
But with "Grand Theft Auto V" now delayed to September, "Lego City Undercover" could prove to be a big selling point for the Nintendo Wii U if it passes muster.
