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.

I find it highly disappointing that the game is unfinished. If there were plans for it to be finished with some DLC I would review this more positively. Over all the game is fun and interesting, but it ends far too soon. It also seems unfinished overall, after the final level it just dumps you out near where you started the level with no information on what you can or should do, it doesn't say that you completed the game or anything, i am pretty annoyed but the ending.

If you want to play this game just buy LEGO Lord of the Rings !! It is a better game than this and a completed one !! This has only the 2/3 of the story and the open world is the same as in LEGO Lord of the Rings (The only new places are "The Lonely Mountain","Mirkwood","Laketown" and "Dol-Gul Dur" (Which is very cool but LEGO Lord of the Rings has way more)

This game could be very fun, but they clearly didn't even try to optimize it for PC. I can only use my keyboard throughout the entire game, I can't even use my mouse in the menus. If I click the wrong button, I suddenly have two characters I have to control at the same time.
I will not play this anymore if this stays this crappy. Please actually try to make a PC game instead of throwing down a console one.

This game has got a lot of hate for not being finished, and I am upset it's not being finished, but what they did do is really good! I'm currently at 52% of total completion, and its a fun pastime after the story mode to go around by yourself or with a friend to try to find all the secrets! It's helpful that if you have only one steam controller, one person can play on the controller and the other on the keyboard. The thing I don't like is that to achieve 100% completion, you have to buy all of the DLC.

As many people here have already pointed out, the contents of the third movie are missing from this game.
Storywise that of course sucks, however you still get a decent amount of content from the game as it is.
LEGO The Hobbit is pretty much everything you'd expect from a Lego game. It's pretty much easy entertainment with a few challenges, but nothing you'd really get stuck on.
I'm not sure if I would enjoy this game all that much just playing it by myself, but it works excellent as a local co-op game and me and my girlfriend had a lot of fun fighting our way through hordes of orcs and other evil doers.
The fact that the content of the third movie apparently won't even be released as a DLC really really sucks, but I will still give the game a thumbs up, because the game in itself was a lot of fun.

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 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.

If you buy this, please make sure you realise that it only contains 2/3 of the films. The final film has not and will never be added to the game, despite them saying they would release it down the line as a DLC.

There will be no conclusion to this game.
I bought this game expecting to be able to play through the full story, and had high expectations for their portrayal of The Battle Of The Five Armies, because, let's face it, it is the climax of the story and has most of the action. For Warner Bros. to announce that they will not expand the game to include BOTFA, is just ridiculous.
Only buy this game if you like leaving the cinema half an hour before a film ends or quitting a book just before the action starts. I hope you, that one strange person who likes incomplete stories, can enjoy this game more than I can

A proposed downloadable expansion to LEGO The Hobbit, which was expected to be based on the final instalment of the movie trilogy, will not see light of day.

In a statement sent to GameSpot, publisher Warner Bros did not explicitly state that the expansion had been cancelled, rather that "there are no plans to develop DLC based on the final film of the trilogy." The publisher also confirmed that it has no plans to release a new game based on the film.

"The LEGO The Hobbit videogame gives LEGO and Middle-earth fans a fun, new way to experience the legendary adventures of Bilbo and company as told in the first two films of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy. The game provides an excellent set-up for the concluding chapter of Peter Jackson’s film, The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies. There are no plans to develop DLC based on the final film of the trilogy."
