Verry good plot, altough it does not have "The Battle Of The Five Armies". It takes 40 to 50 hours for finishing it, so it is not boring at all! Great Lego characters! Gandalf, Bilbo, Thorin and Beorn are the best.

Lego The Hobbit. As a person who has never seen the movies, nor read the books, I can say this is pretty decent. It adds a few game mechanics that I haven't seen before (Though they might be in the Lego Lord of the Rings. I haven't gotten far in that game because I played it right after this one and this game has scarred me with some of these mechanics.) The mechanics that they add can be good or bad, depending on how you are. To me most were bad. Some examples were crafting the Mithril Weapons in order to get the Red Bricks. It was mostly a hastle that I never want to do again. Same with all the side quests. The world is pretty big as well so I'm thankful they added Fast Travel. There are some Game Crashes that you can't really avoid, well, for me I experienced roughly 14 crashes. Some were while I was doing a side quest and others were right after the game had saved (thankfully.. oh my goodness.. I would have been ♥♥♥♥♥♥ if it didn't.). I have 100% of all the achievements and it roughly took 40 hrs so you get your moneys worth. There is 1 achievement I wanted to destroy my computer over and that's the Team Sharing.. or something like that where you have to use all 13 Dwarfs in Thorins (I think) company in a buddy-up attack. It took me over 1 hr to do this stupid achievement because it wouldn't register I did them all till like the 16th try.

*note
I have a Gtx 970, i5 3330 processor, and 1 TB internal and external memory. Running at 1440p native, this game never dropped below 60 with v-sync with just the game running. (I was watching some Tv shows on my other monitor while I was doing the side quests because this game becomes really boring after you're done and it had some lag spikes... well, alot of them..).
*/note

If you're looking for a Lego game to play and if you like LotR, I guess go ahead and get this. Though, I did hear that they cut out the 3rd Hobbit movie from this game (The game can be beat in about 8-10 hrs story wise if you don't rush) so it may be a turnoff for those who are looking for a full Lego the Hobbit experience.

All in all, I give it a 7/10.

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.

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'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."

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.
