Incomplete game that bored me at the 5th mission. Don't buy it unless they add a free DLC with the 3rd movie.

Pretty good Lego game, typical gameplay with the addition of free roam between levels. It stays true to the movies plot with lots of funny "Lego" moments. However, it does not include the third movie so the game feels a bit incomplete. This is worth a play, but the lack of the final movie is really dissapointing.

Pros:
- Nice gameplay additions from Lego: Lord of the Rings
- Crafting is fitting for a lego game
- More puzzles than mindless combat

Cons:
- It crashes a lot
- It ends at the end of the second movie so you don't get to actually fight Smaug
- It uses the new crafting system too often and it gets old fast

It's a good game overall but with a few minor cons. I felt that it had the feel of a good game, something just felt right. But the third section of the game was missing. No major bugs. So only buy it if it's on sale because your actually getting 2/3s of a game

I bought this game on a steam sale so I only spent $5 but I was unaware that this game ONLY CONTAINS MOVIES 1 & 2 not the third movie. If I had paid full price I would be kicking myself. DO NOT buy this game WB backed down on their promise to include the last movie of content.

I would in full honesty reccomend LEGO® The Hobbit™ to anyone who wants about 40 to 50 hours of casual play, experiencing the story of the hobbit, but in a Lego Way. The only person I would not reccomend this game to are folk with no controller compatible with your computer. The Keyboard and mouse controls are horribly unresponsive and it feels like you are playing with rocks. Plug yourself in an Xbox or Playstation controller and you've got yourself a fine gaming experience.

lets go down on the Game itself. The music and soundtrack are directly borrowed from the movie(s) themselves and really put you in the event of where the game is taking place. For example the music in the dainty shire scenes is very tone down mellow folk music, while during epic battle we get music that fits well in with the battle thats going on. As far as the atmosphere of the game goes, its very strong.

The graphics of the game are actually insanely well put together, and the textures look better than most triple A titles released today. However on low graphics the game looks solid and is much easier on your pc. On the subject, the game is not well optimized for PC. I say this because my computer is very strong (i7 and 980) and it has to work much harder than it should in order to run this game on high, so if your computer is a total dinosaur, reconsider before buying at full price.

When talking fully about the gameplay alone, its realitively simple and very similar to most lego games. Like other lego games they add more mechanics with each game. This game has a system of save and quit with a statue you can interact with in most levels, which is new for lego games as far as i can tell. This is definitly helpful because if you are buying this for a child you always have an answer for the "Just let me finish this level!!". More mechanics in this game
that got added such as the building mechanic where instead of just pressing one button and building it, theres a somewhat involved process to choosing and placing bricks.


As far as the story goes I was somewhat dissapointed. This game does not include the 3rd movie and thus doesnt include the battle of the 5 armies. I wouldve thought they would add some kind of dlc but we got nothing. This is perhaps one of the only downsides to the only game and is actually pretty sad. However this lego game is part of the series of lego games that include voice acting, so you can actually feel for the characters and dont feel like you are on the outside of an inside joke like some other lego games. This game can actually tug at your heartstrings at certain moments and that suprised me.

Overall the game was very well put together and would very strongly reccomend it. Also if you get any bugs turn on Vsync and that should fix them. So if you are looking for some casual game to blow off from steam and experience a beautiful story, look no further.

I generally enjoy Lego games and this one isn't necessarily a bad game. What puts me off playing this game is the fact that this game was releaseed without the last movie. That in itself screams cashgrab alright but most people predicted they would make a free DLC for the last movie. Nope, NO DLC AT ALL. In other words, you cannot play a third of the entire trilogy!!! Although, Five Armies is probably my least liked of all the Hobbit films (bad pacing); this game is called The Hobbit! - Why would you end it with a cliffhanger with no resolution in it? Don't buy unless you just want to play another Lego game or play as those characters.

P.S. I am a massive fan of Middle-earth, enjoying The Lord of the Rings (book, movies and Lego game) and so it almost pains me that they messed this up.

P.P.S. The Hobbit movies are generally (relatively) bad IMO.

I'm quite a big fan of the LEGO games, mainly for these three reasons: they're highly replayable, enjoyable and casual. Hours of gameplay can easily be put into a single LEGO game for unlocking extra collectables or other LEGO characters among many other things. Just like in other LEGO games, LEGO The Hobbit is an addictive and light-hearted experience that will take hours for LEGO- and Lord of the Rings-fans alike to complete and perfect, but that's also it's main problem just like with any previous LEGO title... it's more or less the same.

The Pros:
· LEGO The Hobbit stays true to the new popular prequel trilogy (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug and the upcoming The Hobbit: There and Back Again) in both story and lore. Just like in LEGO Lord of the Rings you'll play through the three movies (There and Back Again announced to be DLC when the final movie is released) with some added humorous elements, like silly LEGO figurines holding an umbrella above their heads in order to avoid being hit by falling bricks.
· Didn't get a chance to watch the movies? This game will tell you the same story with entertaining LEGO moments and buildable & destructable LEGO constructions to add a ton of extra content without ever forgetting about the story that needs to be told. Don't let that keep you from buying LEGO The Hobbit if you have already watched The Hobbit movies released so far though! I have seen both movies plenty of times (six times each) and I still find this game just as enjoyable if not a bit more entertaining than watching the movies. It adds an open world LEGO experience that stays true to both LEGO-imagination and the same beautiful world we've seen in The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings trilogy by Peter Jackson.
· There's a ton of stuff to do, like collecting items for crafting (which is an entertaining new addition to the LEGO series), sidequests, replaying missions with certain characters in order to get all the level-specific collectables (for example: Legolas can create a "staircase" of arrows and dwarves can't) or simply running around destroying constructions to collect LEGO studs that will help to fill up your Master Burglar meter. Still...

The Cons:
· That's more or less exactly what we've been doing in the past couple of LEGO games. For those who are not as interrested in the Lord of the Rings universe as I am among many many others, the game(s) can quickly get repetetive and lose their charm. Someone who has played LEGO Marvel Superheroes for example will find lots of simularities. Don't get me wrong, the game offers a lot of content, but if you've spent countless hours collecting every single collectible in any previous LEGO title, I'll doubt you'll want to do the same with LEGO The Hobbit.

The Visuals:
· The visuals are quite simular to LEGO Marvel Superheroes, which is a good thing. LEGO The Hobbit is a combination of LEGO-built structures and normal textures (for example, roads and mountains are not (or not always) made from LEGO bricks). The lighting is gorgeous and the animations are charmingly funny. Overal LEGO The Hobbit is another beautiful addition to the LEGO series.

Final Verdict:
· Hardcore LotR-fans and casual gamers alike will definately enjoy LEGO The Hobbit. With a high replayability and even bigger satisfaction, LEGO The Hobbit is a worthy addition to both the LEGO universe and the Lord of the Rings universe. 9/10.

This is the one game I allow my 6 year old son to play. We play together one level per week on the weekend. Suprising enough I look forward to it as much as he does. The simplicity of playing a game like this is really enjoyable. The voice acting is excellent (it should be since it is taken right from the films). If you're a parent looking for a safe game to enjoy with your kid(s); this is it.

If you buy this, please make sure you realise that it only contains 2/3 of the films. The final film has not and will never be added to the game, despite them saying they would release it down the line as a DLC.

There will be no conclusion to this game.
I bought this game expecting to be able to play through the full story, and had high expectations for their portrayal of The Battle Of The Five Armies, because, let's face it, it is the climax of the story and has most of the action. For Warner Bros. to announce that they will not expand the game to include BOTFA, is just ridiculous.
Only buy this game if you like leaving the cinema half an hour before a film ends or quitting a book just before the action starts. I hope you, that one strange person who likes incomplete stories, can enjoy this game more than I can

A proposed downloadable expansion to LEGO The Hobbit, which was expected to be based on the final instalment of the movie trilogy, will not see light of day.

In a statement sent to GameSpot, publisher Warner Bros did not explicitly state that the expansion had been cancelled, rather that "there are no plans to develop DLC based on the final film of the trilogy." The publisher also confirmed that it has no plans to release a new game based on the film.

"The LEGO The Hobbit videogame gives LEGO and Middle-earth fans a fun, new way to experience the legendary adventures of Bilbo and company as told in the first two films of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy. The game provides an excellent set-up for the concluding chapter of Peter Jackson’s film, The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies. There are no plans to develop DLC based on the final film of the trilogy."
