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.
With all of the side quests and collectibles, Lego The Hobbit is a complete and entertaining game. If you were counting on the Lego version of a movie adaptation of a 70-year-old book to deliver an unsullied narrative experience, you were expecting too much anyway.
It’s very faithful to the movie and manages to embellish enough so as to not be a simple retelling, yet doesn’t quite cover enough ground to be anything other than a companion to the films. It’s probably the best Hobbit game you’re going to get – just don’t expect a massive deviation from the LEGO formula.
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.
I don’t understand all the low scores I’ve played most of the LEGO games and this is one of my favorites in the LEGO genre. Took a good amount of time to get the platinum trophy. (I don’t use guides) Was a good time and rewarding time investment I highly recommend this entry.
Just picked this up for $15 and must say it does the lego universe justice in comparison to the Awesome LOTR. The only downside IMO is the lack of the 3rd movie. It should have been there. Perhaps because there wasn't much on the pipeline since marvel was released last year.
Still though I would have given it a solid 8.5 for it's unique take on gathering ore/etc to build the items you need. I Own every Lego game and can't wait to see what they do with Jurassic World and the next Marvel: Avengers compilation.
The prequel to The Lego Of The Rings video game delivers absolutely nothing new but keeps its pace like the last game. The biggest issue with the game is that it’s uninspired, the levels are the same as before,so is the hub areas as well. It’s like they took everything from lords of the rings added it to this game and made it worse, it’s absolutely disappointing. At least the items you get from levels are more unique now, but still the character roster is mediocre at best. The levels sometimes even feel the same and that’s also disappointing. At least the hub areas have more things to do in them, but the areas you encounter look terrible visually speaking. Overall an absolute disappointment to what lego lord of the rings was, Lego The Hobbit delivers nothing new and feels like a copy of the last game but with new tiny things you won’t even notice. (1/5 Not Worth Your Time)
This game's a bit simple. Very few levels, boring quests, stupid looking mithril creations (a bow with a fish on it? Really). For once, LEGO have made a bad decision in making a game before all of the movies are out. (There's literally 12 levels!)
