This is a pretty standard LEGO game, and if you've played one, you've pretty much played them all. I find them to be good stress-relievers, generally; the combat is mindless and what puzzles there are are very simple, but they tend to go on sale for pretty cheap and offer dozens of hours of relaxing play if you go for full completion and all the achievements. They're even better if you're a fan of the franchises, like Lord of the Rings / The Hobbit in this case.

That all said, there are three big reasons I wouldn't recommend this game.

First, it's incredibly buggy. I've had the game crash completely on me three times now, losing a levels-worth of progress each time, and I've encountered bugs that required restarting the game to fix at least a dozen times. These bugs mainly consist of scripted QTEs not popping up when they're supposed to; the blacksmithing mini-game and the Goblin King boss were the worst offenders here, but I've also gotten stuck while fast-traveling or even going outside from an indoor area.

Second, a lot of the dialogue and side quests are incredibly tedious and unskippable if you're going for full completion. Most of the side quests are fine, but the escort missions, obstacle courses or the occasional "find 500 of a particular loot" ones were largely buggy or tedious. On top of this, you can't skip the NPC dialogue when starting a side-quest for the first time. The dialogue is generally at least okay, but after the 60th time or so it starts to wear pretty thin.

Finally, and most glaringly, it's unfinished. The missions stop at the end of the second movie's plot, and apparently the developer has canceled plans to finish the game. This means the plot is left unresolved and large areas that were built around this future content are left conspicuously empty (primarily the areas in and around Erebor and Dale). The final bonus stage is also really lackluster compared to the ones in previous games.

Unless you're willing to overlook these fairly large issues or the game is on a really good sale (or you're a really huge fan of the first two Hobbit movies), I'd recommend passing on this one. Pick up LEGO Lord of the Rings, Marvel Super Heroes or Batman 2 or 3 instead, as they're much more worthy of your time.

Great game... awful ring races. I have tried over 40 times to complete this ♥♥♥♥♥♥ race, ripped up a mouse pad in anger trying it. But no matter how well I time jumping, it doesn't jump. the character has ♥♥♥♥ing rickets and doesn't jump. If I can't do it how does Tt games expect a child to do it. That ring race is harder than any of the boss fights in the game. ♥♥♥♥ OFF! Other than that, great fun so far.

It's a bit hard to understand. It has a really confusing open world with lots of "quests", and "loot" to collect. As far as I'm aware, you don't hunt out your favourite characters from the movies/book and unlock them; you kinda are just given them after the many short levels in the game; they were never the good bit of the LEGO games, no need to give me more of them... and make them worse. LEGO Lord of the Rings was a big, big game for Traveller's Tales and their LEGO games; the first game to introduce audio. LEGO The Hobbit is not big. I'm not even mad about there only being 2/3 of the story being told in this game. Even with The Hobbit's story in full, I'd still not like it.

I think (like the most) this s very disapponting it´s not the whole story and neither the whole map! I personally eant my money back. And yes i know this game was released when the 3rd move wasn´t released so it couldn´t go further but it should have come with an update or DLC! My opinion.

Maybe I should have read the description more carefully. It never crossed my mind that the game wouldn't cover the complete story of The Hobbit, and that it never will.

If you just love Lego games, and you don't care that the game ends after the second chapter, you'll probably like this game just fine.

Me, I feel cheated.

Don't bother, the game is only 2/3 of the way complete and WB has cancelled the third installment of The Battle of Five Armies. The game is pretty fun, but ultimately unsatisfying. If you don't mind never completing a game or just want to play it, go for it. But I am pretty upset I bought it because I'll never be able to finish it. Like I said, fun up until the end, but I wish I hadn't bought it in the first place. Just play Lego: LOTR instead, it's more fun to play and also it's not a compressed screen, not like Lego: The Hobbit. It's incredibly disappointing that there won't be a conclusion, it's unfair of WB to do to their buyers. What it's done to me is left me disappointed with a throbbing headache, I can't stand it when I can't complete things, as I'm sure most of you can relate to. If you want to avoid disappointment, anger, frustration, and headaches...I'd say skip out on this game. You never get to speak with Thranduil again (which I admit I was so looking forward to! He's one of my favorites! He's such a lovable ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥), you never get to see Thorin becoming sick like his father (also something that would have been great), witness that touching, beautiful scene where Bilbo gives Thorin the acorn (very important...espcially to me and my best friend as we have that exact acorn tattooed behind our left ears!!), defeat Smaug for real, OR, and most importantly OR, you NEVER EVER get to see the emotional ending of The Hobbit. Another thing that was disappointing, I'm sure most of us fans loved it when the Dwarves broke out into song at Bilbo's table. I was really hoping that would be added, but my hopes were crushed. It would have been a great thing to see. But I digress, the quality is much more clear in Lego: LOTR as well, this game is blurry and was a bit painful to focus on, just play that instead, that game is worth it. I wish I could give this game a recommendation, I really do. Up to the last 1/3 of the game, it was incredibly fun, it was fantastic even...very different from the other LEGO games I've played and I really liked that about it. If you like incomplete games, go ahead! If you don't and can't stand the endless frustration of never finishing a game, just...don't. Save yourself from this tom foolery and just watch the movies, read the books, play LEGO: LOTR...because there is a void you will never fill because it doesn't end. Do not allow this to happen to you because it is the worst feeling when you can't finish a game that was supposed to end...but never will...</3

Not the best lego game I have ever played but it is still good. I feel like they where adding in to many new mechanics that it was a bit out of place in some points. Also canceling the DLC for the last movie is a big let down.

LEGO® The Hobbit™

It's a LEGO game following Bilbo's adventures to the Mountain, there and back. While The game doesn't include The Battle Of Five Armies, And it probably never will, It's still quite an enjoyable experience, worth picking up if you like the LEGO games. It took me 42 hours to get all of the achievements.

The game was bought on a sale

Pros

+ Open world experience
+ Silly humour
+ Interesting mechanics
+ Achievements

Cons

- Gets a little bit repetitive in the end
- Still can find a few visual glitches (But what do you want, it's a LEGO game)
- Unfinished (Doesn't contain The Battle Of Five Armies)

Verdict

7/10

Recommended for lovers of the LEGO games and for those with children. Get it on sale.

I love Middle-Earth, Lego and games, so this is a fantastic game for me. The way they make these LEGO games are incredible, and I am fascinated over how much they have in the game. It is a shame they don't make any DLC or new game for the third part of (The Battle of The Five Armies) but it is still a game with hours of fun, and i am shocked over how people are not recommending this game because it doesnt have the last part of the book (or the last movie). totally worth every hour, and I recommend this game for everyone who likes humor and The Hobbit!

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.
