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 a great new installment in the LEGO series. I have been playing LEGO games for so long, and I HAD to buy this game. It truly is one of my favoriet LEGO games I have ever played. There is new content, such as crafting at an anvil and even mining! Not only does it follow the story of The Hobbit well, but it adds some of the LEGO humor that we all love. All of the dwarves are unique, as in they all have different "abilities", so to speak. I am slightly disappointed that every character has the sams "Special Move." By that, I mean that they all spin if held down the special key. (Can't remember what it is, but it is the one that you use to build things.) Although, there are characters with different abilites such as Gandalf and Raddaghast. Anyway, if you have ever played a LEGO game before, you should SERIOUSLY consider buying this!

It has all of the adventure of the Hobbit movies, recounted in that super silly, LEGO-game cuteness that never fails to amuse. Whether you're solving puzzles, beating down trolls or simply roaming the world of LEGO Middle-earth, this game provides fun and laughter in droves - if you enjoyed the Hobbit movies, you're going to love this game!

Fantastic game. If you like the subject matter then it's an essential purchase. Top notch visuals and sound. Follows the films perfectly. Loads to do and discover. Took me 50 hours to get all the achievements but i had a lot of fun the whole time.

Now, the game, like the films released so far, is based only on the first 2 films. The third will be DLC early next year. Don't let this put you off. The game, as it is, it at least as big as Lego Lord of the Rings. Maybe bigger. So you're getting tons of content right now.

If you like any of the Lego games (and who doesn't?) then i really do recommend getting this. You will have a blast!
