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.

fantastic game, still the good old lego humor. also they have added a lot of new things, that makes sure that you have a lot to do even after you complete the main missions. my game did crash once or twice during gameplay, but they will most likely fix that, and even though its really annoying when it happens, it does not ruin the game.

This is the greatest thing to ever come out.

Upsides:
Great Game
Full Story of the movie with the addition of a few washing machines

Downsides:
Some DLC items you now have to find in the new update.
You can only freely choose character in the hub after completing the whole game

I will keep this as short as possible. First, it isn't as epic as Lego LOTR. Second, it's still epic. Third, if you're a fan, buy it. Fourth, Lego has awesome humor. I just beat the story about a half hour ago. The story alone was worth the purchase. I love the unlockable characters and freeplay mode. One annoying feature: the new "crafting" system. That is a pain in the BUTT.

Some tips: These Lego games HATE crossfire (can't speak for SLI). Disable it on a per-application profile in your CCC if you buy any of them. I haven't had a lot of crashes, however, I found most of them were caused by using GeDoSaTo to upscale/downscale. It sucks that these games crash for stupid reasons, but if you play them whilst not trying to do anything hard core, you will have a lot of fun.

I am purchasing the DLC tonight and will update my review later.

I played all lego games except lego pirates of the caribbean and I can say that lego the hobbit is one of the best lego games i ever played. It's very good, have much inovative characters and awesome new features. There are lot of new places to explore and awesome new item finding feature that allows you to customize your character with various items like shields, swords, even hair that gives him new abilities. I give 10/10 to game, I really recommend this to anyone, new lego players and experienced lego players. :D

I can totally recommend this. It's the best Lego game so far and wonderfully made. For everyone who likes the Hobbit and Lego this is a must- buy. There are plenty of funny and interesting aspects which keeps suspense. It may be that it is graphically seen behind all the newly released games, BUT story, middle earth and gameplay are the best so thats no problem. Most of the side quests are pretty cool and sometimes hilarious (Quest to fight Azogs mum). The DLCs are now WORKING, the old reviews just werent updated obviously. Great Game.......

10/10

Fun game for the price, I got it for 5 dollars. However, I do think they jumped the gun finishing this game before the final movie was released, even though the last movie will just be a way for the producers to milk it and make it a "trilogy" Overall Gameplay is fun and what youve come to expect of lego games this one delivers.

LEGO The Hobbit is, first and foremost, a LEGO game. There isn't a great deal different from other LEGO titles, in both bad and good ways. If you've tried LEGO games before and found them dull, I don't think this one will change your mind, but if you have an obsession for collection, this game will probably serve you well.

First of all, some gripes. I really don't like how the game forces you to come back later and re-do things when you already have the means to complete them at your disposal, simply locked away. It takes advantage of a child's endless appetite for repetition (Pokemon, anyone?), but as an adult it gets frustrating at times. And speaking of frustrating, the game has some bugs too. I've had characters get stuck, once even in a game-breaking way in the middle of a story mission that locked out all buttons but Start and forced me to quit. The physics on hills and edges get weird sometimes and prevent you from jumping, which can sometimes lead to the stuck thing or lead to death in the middle of a jumping puzzle. I would also get random crashes for a while, which was fixed by turning off Raptr's integration completely, even the Track Gameplay part (the only part I actually use). And the end of the game cuts off at a really bad time, though that's not entirely their fault, since from what I understand the movie does too. Perhaps they should have waited for the third movie to come out to release this. Hopefully they put out some DLC to add in the final climax. It's literally only missing the last chapter or two from the book.

Now that I've gotten that out of the way, the game is still fun. It's still cathartic to beat up LEGO objects and watch them explode into fountains of loot and studs. The gradual ramp of power and wealth starts to get quite high near the end, and I feel a bit Smaug looking over my vast collection of items and riches. Okay, I admit that pun was terrible. Moving on. None of the missions, quests, or puzzles are particularly difficult or complex, but are still fun nonetheless. Suitably accessible for a child but still enjoyable for an adult, a good balance. I'm about 28 hours in and I still haven't gotten tired of it. The bits of humor injected into the game here and there are a nice touch as well. My favorite gag is Azog's missing hand actually following him around and constantly taunting him. Great way to add flavor to the original movie script. And the voice acting clips taken from the movie are a nice touch to telling the story as well, as opposed to the silent approach of early LEGO games.

By no means is LEGO The Hobbit without flaws, but if you're a fan of Traveller's Tales style of collect-a-thon games, this will be a shining Arkenstone in your collection. I picked it up for $5 on sale and more than got my money's worth out of it. Again, if you're tired of the LEGO formula or just really hate Tolkien it's probably a safe pass, but for everyone else, I'd definitely recommend giving it a try.

If you've played a lego game before you know what to expect somewhat but this was quite a unique experience. The open world really makes you feel like you're going on an adventure with Bilbo and the dwarfs in an almost Skyrim esc. manner. The game is very easy and simple to get through but if you want to 100% the game it is surprisingly difficult. Challenges range all the way from escort missions you can't fail to a race around Rivendell that is quite infuriating for all the right reasons. The challenges are quite satisfying to complete and it feels good watching the map get less and less cluttered with quests over time, you really feel like you're making progress. The controls are awful to start but can be changed very quickly to something that makes more sense for your keyboard. Overall a great game that I actually feel driven to complete 100% of the way.

A great game fillled with loads of exploration and hilarity like the other lego games but this one is much much bigger than the rest you get to see the open world of middle earth from the shire to the lonely mountain and all the rest a great story of course and more characters than lego marvel its worth it :)

One of the more in-depth LEGO games. The puzzles are suitably time-consuming and difficult, and there is a larger range of individual skills than in any other I've played (except maybe Marvel Super Heroes).
As usual, the drop-in, drop-out local co-op is fantastic.

Strongly recommend!

I must admit I'm not the biggest fan of the Lego game series, but I've played some of them because my son likes them. Reason enough for me to play them too. Star Wars series was nice, the Lego movie game was surprisingly good. But this one makes it really hard for me. Figures get stuck very often, the camera isn't too smooth, rather boring leveldesign, quicktime-events, problems with the resolution I've never had in another game before. Don't get me wrong - if you like the Lego series you will like this one too. But if you play it because you want to spend some good old gaming-time with your kid, this shouldn't be your first choice.

THE DLC PACKS WORK NOW!

This game is THE BEST lego game I've played and I've played almost all of them. If you are going to buy any lego game, buy this one. The map is huge, the story is excellent, more gameplay mechanics than in the older lego games etc. And of course for The Hobbit fans this game is a treat.

I've only played the game up through the end of story mode and haven't spent more than an hour or two exploring the open world. As a die hard LotR fan I thought LEGO Lord of the Rings was the best LotR game ever made for making a realistic feeling open world middle-earth and capturing the feel of it being mroe of a journey or quest rather than hack n slah like all the other games we get. LEGO Hobbit does it exactly the same. Most of the levels will rarely feature more than acouple enemies to fight and consist more of utilizing the Dwarves' different skillsets to solve, albeit easy, puzzles. The boss fight against Sauon can be a ♥♥♥♥♥ though...good god that was annoying. Oh, and you also get to shoot orcs as legolas while balancing on the dwarf heads during the barrels scene just like the movies, definetly my favorite moment. The open world has gotten revamped. Eagles can now fly you to each of the main areas making for cool flying transitions. Dol Guldur, Thranduils Kingdom, Dale, and Laketown are all explorable (the goblin kingdom is not in the open world), some more limited than others. Lake Town's lake is wide open for you to sail around, although i haven't gotten around to it. The major new addition is of little caves that hold puzzles inside each to solve for collecting your bricks to craft all that mithril stuff just like lotr. Oh, you can also customize your own horses, ponies, and Wargs for free world riding. There's a fourth option for big creatures (troll looking) but I haven't unocked it yet and there's also create a character. Overall, it keeps intact the feeling of adventure and exploration that LotR is about, which is what makes it a great game for any LotR fan.

Played all LEGO titles that have been released since the first LEGO Star Wars and have to say that this one is the BEST one in the whole series.
As every LEGO title before you have levels which you can play through and after that the free play mode. BUT beside those two options you also can explore the whole north of middleearth as an openworld experience with day and night activitys which you can toogle. Also the game brings in a crafting system which allows you to build some wierd and not so wierd stuff from mithrilrecipes which you can find around the map and one of it in every level.
I never had so much fun playing a LEGO game before and the other ones where good too.
So i would prefere a recommended buy!!!

This game has everything I have come to expect from LEGO games and as such it is a lot of fun. It is a silly retelling of the story of The Hobbit, with loads of things to do and collect. The significant addition to this game is that you now also collect loot which can be used to build things for certain missions. I rather liked these new building segments where you have to select correct parts to complete a mini kit against the clock, however my partner did not like them.

I am going to digress slightly here but I loved the book as a child and always felt it would make an excellent film. Peter Jackson however decided that he didn't want to make that film, he chose to pad it out with tedium to make three protracted tiresome films. Because this game is based on the films we have to play through the rubbish parts of the films and we don't even get the whole story as at the time of writing the final film has not been released. The conversion to LEGO is enough to redeem them but it does remind me what a missed opportunity the films were.
