  • Summary: From the makers of LEGO The Lord of the Rings, comes LEGO The Hobbit, inspired by the first two films in The Hobbit Trilogy: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug as well as the collection of LEGO The Hobbit constructions sets. The interactive game of LEGO The Hobbit allows gamers to play along with their favorite scenes from the films, and follows the Hobbit Bilbo Baggins as he is recruited by the Wizard Gandalf to aid Thorin Oakenshield and his Company of Dwarves. Bilbo leaves the comforts of the Shire on a journey through Middle-earth to help the Dwarves reclaim their lost Kingdom of Erebor within the Lonely Mountain. Along the way, he is introduced to ravenous Trolls, dangerous Orcs and, of course, Gollum and his precious Ring. Players utilize and combine the Dwarves’ unique abilities to solve a diverse array of Quests. Expand

    Lego The Hobbit is, if not the best Lego game, then closely matched with the top entries in the series. It expands the series repertoire with new mechanics and better quest navigation.

    Lego the Hobbit's succinct storytelling and engrossing world actually added a lot to my appreciation of the fiction. This stands as my favorite adaptation of the book.

    Gathering loot and buddy attacks are super additions that do just enough to improve the series.

    LEGO The Hobbit isn’t the hardest game and has its problems, but the charm and humor of the LEGO-characters in Middle-Earth make up for that.

    For better or worse, the series keeps on chugging. Thankfully it is always of high quality.

    As usual, the selling point is the setting tied to the game. If you (or your kids) are big fans of "The Hobbit," then they'll enjoy the game. If not, it'd be better to look at one of the many other franchise tie-ins that have received the LEGO treatment.

    Lego The Hobbit proves that having plenty of variety in terms of objectives and gameplay mechanics doesn't make much difference if none of those objectives and mechanics are much fun, and that capturing the look of an epic quest isn't the same as capturing the feel of one.

    Really I'd give it about an 8.5 but I gave it a 10 to offset the obviously ridiculous low scores. Even a critic gave this a 60?!? This game is a solid 80 at worst. Sorry but just because some of the optional side-quests can feel repetitive doesn't mean the game gets a horribly low score.

    All the cool stuff we've come to know and love about Lego adventure games along with some of the best graphics currently available on the next-gen systems.
    Hobbiton (the shire) feels like you are walking around middle earth with lego characters and objects mixed in.

    Fans of Tolkien as well as lego fans will love this game.

    This game RAWKS. The open world Middle-earth is so fun, I've spent hours there. Also, a horse customiser! Clearly a stroke of genius... Keep 'em coming you TT, you crazy diamonds. Expand
