LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins received mixed reviews with aggregate scores of 63.77% from GameRankings and 65/100 from Metacritic. IGN gave it 6.3/10, calling it a "decent" game that is marred by "a lot of fog, a lot of loading, no voice acting and a jarring framerate".
Liam Martin of Digital Spy gave the game 3 out of 5 stars, commenting on the games lack of appeal but praising the game's visuals and stating that "Unfortunately, where LEGO City Undercover referenced movies and used voice acting to great effect, hardware limitations have forced TT Fusion to keep spoken cutscenes to a minimum, something which ultimately detracts from the hilarity. Despite its flaws, LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins is a charming release, packed with diverse missions, mostly impressive visuals and a great cast of characters."
Chris Scullion of Official Nintendo Magazine gave the game 64% out of 100.
