It is called Lego the Hobbit, it should be called Lego Some of the Hobbit.

I bought this game at a time where the developers claimed that the third film's content would release right after the film released (December 2014). When the time came, the studio announced that it was not going to release it after all.

I don't know how this is legally or ethically correct, but this is when you really wish for some internet justice. They promised content which they did not deliver, its unforgivable, especially once they have the money of the customers in hand. This game was simply a fraud, a con, and a scam.

Once they enticed a huge audience to buy the game with the promise of all the Hobbits in the game, they just didn't have to make it because everyone had already bought it. More moeny, less work. Disgusting.

out of all the lego games, this one is literaly the only one that is missing content. Every other game has all of their complete films, while this one only has the first 2 parts of the game. Very bad deal to buy this game, its like buying 2/3 of a book then never finishing it.

I cannot support the idea of buying 2/3 of a game.

There IS a lot to like in this game. They added an attempt at a crafting system (extremely rudementary and not very well executed), and they finally allowed us to see what the characters can do as we select them from the big list. But that's mostly because a majority of the characters are virtually the same. Which is more the problem with the story than the game. It has the same type of overworld as Lego LOTR, with questing and such. Elements of the overworld unlock as you play through the story.

All in all, on a technical level, the game's a fairly fun Lego game.

But the failures come in the adaptation. First off, they chose to model the game after the movies. Because of course they did, if they followed the book instead people would be confused and scared and not want to give them money again. So we have crap like the stupid barrel scene, and the really, REALLY badly done Lake-Town bit (and a level in this game that just never seems to end - much like the movie). And if they had based it on the book, they could have actually FINISHED THE BLOODY STORY!

No, instead, we get 2/3 of the game. And that's all there will ever be. There is no DLC for the third movie (which would be a terrible precedent anyway). There is no second game (which would be about as sorry as Lego Indiana Jones 2). What we are left with is an eternally incomplete product because they felt the need to rush this game out the door.

Do not buy it. There are plenty of other Lego games to play instead. And if you have already played all of those, there are plenty of other video games period that are far more worth your time than this incomplete mess.

I just finished the game... with the Smaug flying towards Lake Town.
Yeah, this game ends BEFORE most of the cool stuff happens, because they did not include the third movie and never will . they planned to release it as a DLC after the film's release, because the game came out before it, but then later on cancelled that DLC and also said there'd be no second Lego Hobbit game. The third movie, the epic battle and final conclusion to the story, just won't happen.
♥♥♥♥ you, Warner Brothers.
And I'm very disappointed of you, Traveller's Tales. Up until now, I loved every single Lego game you released. You guys should be ashamed to have released this incomplete piece of ♥♥♥♥.
Not saying it's a bad game though, from the mechanics and everything make it the best Lego game so far IMO, but leaving out the best part of the trilogy after the first two were mostly just buildup for the grand finale is just a dealbreaker. If I had known this before, I wouldn't have bought the game, and I will warn anyone who wants it that this huge important part is missing and will never be included.
