A nice game from badass developers (Traveller's Tales) with an unprofessional publisher (Warner Bros.). Where is The Battle of the Five Armies? You lied to us and I can't let things be so. I've played this one, LotR and all the Star Wars Saga, but I'll never buy a LEGO game again. It's sad that this is my first review, but I need to write this down as the rest of us did.

I wish you won't buy this or other LEGO game, but it's your decision (of course). At least I hope this helps you to judge if it really pays off to give your money to Warner.

I wish I could give this game a thumbs up. What I played of it was tremendously fun. But not finishing the game when people have paid for a product that they have been promised will be based on all three films is unacceptable. Don't buy this game if you haven't already got it, you'll just be so disappointed.

Not cool, WB. Sort it out.

I've enjoyed pretty much all of the LEGO games. They're a great little multiplayer game for passing the time.

My brother and I were happily playing through this installment until we were suddenly stopped short by the abrupt end to the playable levels. Sure we could wander around completing all of the various quests, but frankly, I just wanted to see more badass dragon action.

I'm furious that I've payed for a game that's not finished and but I'm even more peeved to discover that there is no update in the works.

I'm almost even more annoyed to discover that this game has an overall positive score. Given that it's missing a third of its content it couldn't be more undeserved. So here's my two cents, I hope it helps drag that 'very positive' score down.

Lego the Hobbit is a great game with some flaws.

Firstly, the game is very fun to play - as with most lego games. It's enjoyable, well-paced, exciting and fun with a very diverse cast of lego characters and a nice range of levels and backdrops. the game LOOKS great - even the lego pieces have shadows and effects on them, and they really feel a part of the enviroment.

The sound design is also great, the voice acting is nice if a little repetative (excluding the narrator, who never gets boring) and the music is well-selected, and with one of the red bricks, you can even make the music more "retro".

The world is massive, suprisingly, and there's a ton of stuff to do from solving puzzles to find bricks or helping people out for the same reason. turning in one of the mithril items you have forged to someone gives you a red brick, a special extra item that gives you a bonus - while not consuming the item itself.

However the game does have flaws.

Because of the treasure system, allowing your character to equip [retty much everything in the game - characters have a problem with not feeling unique or needed. The only TRULY needed character is Saruman and Sauron, as they have specific functions exclusive to them that can only be unlocked through mithril treasure items. Currency is also fairly worthless. The problem with studs is, because everything is so cheap, it's almost pointless to grind for money at all - even Sauron, the most unique and one of the most useful characters, costs just 75,000 studs - less than one full missions worth, in certain missions. The game also has some notable performance issues. The game will sometimes lag massively, crash and bug out - and it's for some reason incompatible with windows Aero despite coming out in 2014. Finally, the big characters like the trolls and the ork beserker are pointless. they're only used in the overworld, they can't be used in ANY level, and they only serve as yet ANOTHER mechanic to restrict the player and for no reason either! I do like the trolls design and the idea of using them but, because of the sheer lack of need for them (seriously there's like five things they can interact with) they serve almost no purpose. The game has so MANY mechanics that it dilutes the game severely as a result. Fewer mechanics with a smaller roster, even a mission or two less, would've felt a lot better. I really enjoyed Lego: The Hobbit, but it;'s not a game i'd reccomend completing. Almost your entire game will be doing the quests, which wil start fun and end up an annoying mess. Buy it, have fun with it, but don't complete it unless you're fine with the above points.

Great game, lots of fun!

Pros:
Lots of fun
It goes pretty much as the movies
Sooo many things to do (Crafting, unlocking, quest)

Cons:
The story doesn't have a end (It finish at the ending of the second movie)
Crafting requieres lots of grinding
Some quest are imposible to do because bugs and unexpected crashes

Even with the bugs (which i think is the worst part) i would recommend this game to anyone.

Product received for free
wow the game is a disappointment, like it is incomplete as in it ends at the second movie there is no third and not just that but until you get to a part where you can buy loot you will spend at least an hour to grind for loot because this is a game where you have to use loot to build lego stuff in the story game not just the free world part of it and if it turns out that in part of the game you dont have enough loot to build you have to exit the game and all the loot within that area that you spent is gone and you have to go through the whole world to try to find the right loot, and no they do not give you the loot you need in the area.
and with needing loot comes backtracking like god untile you beat the first movie there is no fast travel after the first movie and some areas you get horses, but at that point you dont need to back track for loot, and sometimes the camera was bad (couldn’t see) and it took forever to use my controller until i figured out how to make it not be player 2, and after that it had the “press f2 to play as player 2″ blinking non stop an issue I havent had with lego games before,
like in lego batman 3 I didnt spend any time going into the controls to let me use my controller

tldr: only buy the lego hobbit if it is the last lego game you have because its only 2/3rds of the movies.
and only buy it for $5 or less on steam sales.
if buy this heres a tip youll need dont do trade unless its for things like gems and iron material
and the green plants and trees are where you get your wood and other things to build the bridge
dont use your loot in the free rome world until you get past the first movie.
it gets a 4/10 because i got 2/3rds of a movie they get 2/3rds of the review and if they gave me all 3 movies it would be a 7/10
im serious buy every other lego game (besides demensions because we all know thats a buy our product to advance kind of game) and then buy this dissapointment.

Really great game. I'm also really glad I chose this game in particular from the Lego franchise to be my first. Very friendly to those who are new to it. Note : I played both singleplayer and splitscreen with my girlfriend (around 20 together, 30 solo), and 100%d the game. Ran on 4k DSR. GTX970, FX8320. For some multi-core AMD cpus, untick and retick core 0s affinity in task manager. This is only required if 1 core is being abused.

Overall score : 9/10

_/Pros\_
-Looks great graphically for a Lego game.
-Performs even better than it looks. Confirmed in 4k.
-Story is very similar to the originals, but with quirky twists. Very enjoyable for all.
-VOICE ACTING. I can't tell you how much voice acting helps immersion in Lego games. (Side characters are bad tho)
-RPG hoarders heaven, you collect tons of studs (currency), mithril bricks, etc. (Kinda like Ratchet and Clank)
-Unlockables at every turn. Seriously, constant new character unlocks and such. Loads of content. LOADS.
-FAST TRAVEL IS SO CONVINIENT, like for real. Select, choose a spot with an eagle statue, done.
-Splitscreeeeeeeen.

_/Cons\_
-AWFUL camera movement.
-Disorienting splitscreen splitting. (Particularly using menus)
-Gets grindy after about 70% completion. (Farming remaining mithril blocks, red blocks, etc.)
-All the fun content is SEVERELY hard to discover. I didn't know about so much until the end of the completion.
-Glitch heaven, though I want to note that any glitches are very minor as the autosave feature kicks butt.

Always been a fan of Lego games, and Lego LOTR was amazing, but this broken mess is to be avoided. I sunk 2 days into this game solid to get 100% and in the end, the Achv for completing all the quests is broken. I wouldn't hold my breath for them fixing this as they aren't even thinking about completing the part 3 DLC anymore which is a huge kick in the teeth as it is. They have just left it with only 2 of the 3 films in it.

Do not buy.

How can you release a game without all the content that was promised? We only get the first two films and miss out on the finale which had the most action. Hey, that makes perfect sense! I see where the Lego franchise is going now with the money grabbing Lego Dimensions.

A good game, but sadly one third of it is technically missing. Though they initially promised to have the last third as a special DLC content - Battle of the Five Armies - they ultimately chose to not include it.

If you are able to look past this issue - albiet a rather annoying one - then this game is a good fun romp.

There is nothing too strenuous. Nothing to rage-inducing. It is a LEGO Game, plain and simple. You play levels, you collect stuff, find hidden stuff, break stuff, make stuff, make MORE stuff, and then break it again. You talk to newly-voiced NPC's and complete quests, forge items, and have a new collection system beyond just the studs you use to buy characters.

The added bonus of having Christopher Lee voicing in-between cut-scenes as well is a lovely addition, as well as him voicing something known as the Yodeling Sheild...

A good fun game.

'An Incomplete Journey', 'The Desolation of Boredom', or 'The Battle to Keep Yourself Awake' would have all been great subtitles for this game. If I would have known sooner that LEGO® The Hobbit™ was an incomplete game that puts me to sleep everytime I play it, I would have put the $20 I shelled out for it to much better use.

But this is all water under the bridge now, and The Hobbit™ film trilogy is over, along with all the hype sorrunding it. If you want a complete and epic tour of Middle-earth in Lego form, purchase LEGO® The Lord of the Rings™ instead.

It is a good game if you like to buy it in sale or something like that.
But why do you not finish your game its a project your working on right?! Its just like your busy with constructing a building and then just say ''nope lets leave it unfinished like this, lets throw our customers under the bus''.
I dont f ing get it and then still ask people to buy your crappy dlc!
WHY!!!

This game delivers whats expected of a lego game as a whole, but its hard to overlook the fact that there is an obvious chunk of the game missing with no foreseeable solution in sight. Perhaps in time WB may alter their decision to not ocmplete the game, but for now its not worth buying.
