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.

I tend to greatly enjoy Lego games, but this particular one leaves a bitter taste in my mouth.

The gameplay itself is fair enough; it's an enjoyable puzzle platformer set to Tolkien's wonderful universe, and I believe you'll get your money's worth in terms of entertainment - however, there are two reasons that makes me give it a downvote.

First, the story mode only includes the tales of the first two movies. That means it ends rather abruptly at a cliffhanger, just like the second movie did. Given that story mode is only part of the gameplay, with the greater world of puzzles still being good value, I'm almost willing to overlook this fact.

What I can't ignore, however, is that some of the world puzzles are buggy or outright broken. Some can be played around, others cannot - in particular the Mithril Megapult schematics puzzle. This one is completely unobtainable for me due to a bug with the cave door it hides behind; it is a well-known bug, and none of the workaround suggestions I've found have fixed the issue I'm having. That means I'll never be able to actually complete the game, and that makes me feel cheated even more than the 'only two of three movies' story mode bit does.

All in all, a decent game brought down by some really annoying flaws. Given the title's age, I don't think it likely they'll ever be fixed, which is a pity.

This Games Biggest Downfall Is That It's Not Got The Battle Of The Five Armies And Will Never Have It.

Don't Let That Stop You From Buying This Game Because All The Rest Of It Is Like All Other LEGO Game.

It feels very rushed as a game, with a lot of not-so-funny "gags", especially compared to LEGO The Lords of the Rings.
Also, it just covers two of the three movies, and thus ends quite unsatisfying.

All in all: Lego LofR was way better.

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.

Another great Lego game - almost. WB abandoned it and didn't add part , even as DLC, so you can only play 2/3 of the story and can't actually finish The Hobbit.

I would recommend this game, as it was extremely fun and I had a great time playing through it.

I cannot recommend this game, however, due to one major flaw. This game should be called Lego 2/3 of The Hobbit. It only includes the story from the first two films as it is not based on the book. It ends with Smaug flying to Lake-town. The developers said that they would release the last film after it was released in 2014, but they later said that they would not be including it. This is unacceptable considering they already had the money of teh consumer and they flat out stood everyone up.

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME UNLESS YOU WANT 2/3 OF A GAME.

This is a great game and I love the open world but unfortunately it's only 2/3 of game, which is total CRAP not having The Battle of the Five Armies part (which would have been really awesome if it had been developed). It's really disappointing, so only buy this game when it's on sale super cheap because it isn't worth the full freaking price. I HATE you Warner Bros. >.<

'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.

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.

My son just beat this; he is 6 years old. He knew without seeing any of the movies (he is too young obviously) that a huge part was missing at the end without any input from myself. Not including the Battle of the Five Armies movie significantly reduces the lure to this game that will always be incomplete now that the DLC for the third movie was cancelled.

Buy it when it goes for $4.99 on most seasonal sales on Steam so you don't feel quite as jipped.

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.

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!!!

I really want to recommend this game-it's a lot of fun, the gameplay is witty and enjoyable-as is the lego-particular twist on the wonderful Tokien tale. But-it is incredibly buggy, which is incredibly frustrating. The game has crashed on me a number of times, and I am now at a part in the story that I honestly don't know how I will get past due to the collosal bug. I need both characters (elves in this case) to pull down an item, so they both need to get to a certain point. Unfortunately, one of them even when I take control automatically goes to the left no matter what I do. She jumps right back onto a swinging bar, and if I try to go further left and then back to the right-she jumps off the edge...over and over and over. Basically, if you buy this game it is the luck of the draw. Either you will be able to do a full playthrough, or a bug will break the game for you. Also, apparently the game doesn't actually finish the story-a friend of mine mentioned this as he was able to finish the game, and that is also not very cool. There are much better lego game options out there, so if you are considering buying a lego game, I would suggest skipping this one.

LEGO Hobbit is a very good LEGO to get, one of the best I own!
Story line is really good, and it's action pact! Not to mention you can be so many characters!
And it's pretty long, I think this is one of the best LEGOs you could buy, but don't take my word for it, buy it for yourself! You won't be disappointed!

Lego Hobbit is yet another Lego 3D Platformer by Travellers Tales. Seriously. This one came out in 2014. And it's based of only the first two movies of Hobbit series.
Yes, only from the first two movies. Warner Bros promised to whip Travellers Tales into making DLC based on the third movie, but then after a while they went all "eh eh eh not planning to make any videogames based on the third movie".
Yea, store page of a game masterfully avoids any mention that it's not complete.
It also came out on consoles that are Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, WiiU. And also had handheld version for 3DS and Vita which is your usual "same idea, different lesser execution" thing. Don't worry, from what I looked the PC version is among top.

Technically, it's about on same level as recent Lego offerings. Or maybe even worse. You know, bugs, crashes and getting stuck in geometry. I do remember crashing at the end of level 5 personally. And many people complain about some bugs in overworld.

Anyway, it's yet another Lego game. Casual, beat stuff, collect stuff. Watch funny cutscenes with voice overs. Do quests in open roam part. No revolution. Just same evolution of a snail.

Like, this time around a lot of destructable objects now drop additional loot: various materials. And there are some objects into which you must dispense a certain amount of materials that you gathered. Then once done, minigame will happen where the Lego object is being automatically built, then it stops at some point and shows which detail it's going to build next and you have to select it from 8-directional choice. Or else time will run out, which only means that you get less studs. Yea, it still wouldn't make you think.
Oh, and everybody can charge attack. Eh.

Look, this franchise is so painfully stale. I remember Travellers Tales for creating charming games like Galladan, Toy Story for 16-bit and Sonic R. Sad to see that they pretty much turned into yearly licensed Lego games factory. That now makes quite buggy games. And this one isn't even full experience. Not to say that it has much less than others though.
And there was so many games in Lego games that at this point you better approach it different from other sane game franchise: Instead of following Lego franchise, just pick the single game that fits your interest. And then don't care about others.

Really, I know that there are other franchises that don't change things up at all. But the thing is that Lego franchise is designed to not require much thinking. So kids will be able to beat it. Though at times it might be offending even for kids. And thus "almost reskin, more levels" doesn't work here, like, say, with 8-bit Megaman. Just changing little doesn't work. It really gets repetetive for real. No challenge, no new think for each level.

So eh. It still doesn't stop me from having to recommend it up, rather than down, as it's still a good game with some love and charm still being shown, Travellers Tales style.
Enjoy your expected cliffhanger!

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.
