  1. LEGO The Hobbit is a game made specifically for LEGO fans. It would be better if Traveller's Tales and Warner Bros to wait for the last movie instead of rushing this one with a part of it's story missing. There's nothing unexpected about this journey, and that doesn't make it any less enjoyable.

    LEGO The Hobbit is a well-made game that doesn't break any new ground. Interesting story, atmosphere of the movie and a large world coexist with old gameplay solutions and well known issues. Middle-earth made of bricks has great potential, but the developers apparently don't want to take advantage of it all (yet). Fans of the series and Tolkien worshipers will definitely have fun for many hours, but they won't be amazed.

    A really great Lego game, surprisingly fresh for a company famous for releasing the same product over and over again. [06/2014, p.56]

    At this point, criticising a Lego game for being much like the other Lego games feels somewhat pointless. It's tempting, especially after so many, but it's a series that's long been more comfortable changing the wallpaper than rebuilding the entire house, and that's not likely to change any time soon.

    LEGO The Hobbit has plenty of charm and plenty of content, but it's hard not to feel like the series is lacking some of the verve that it once had.
