An unfinished game. Lego LotR perfected what this game tried to do, and it's complete, so play that instead.

Only 2 of the 3 films made into the game. The last one looks like will never be added, not even as DLC. So because it's incomplete, I won't recommend it.

The game itself is one of the best Lego games and I really enjoyed it. Even more so than Lego LOTR. But this also means that I am even more disappointed by the fact that it's incomplete and will likely remain incomplete.

Thank you very much for not releasing the third movie and with this pretty much giving fans the finger.

Warner has never been kind on Middle Earth fans but this is one of the biggest f ups they've done!

LEGO® The Hobbit™, although a very fun game, it is INCOMPLETE.

YOU ARE ONLY BUYING 2/3 OF A GAME.

Don't expect to see anything from part three, becuase this game is FINISHED before that point.

Never seen the Hobbit and never will, but I figured this is the best way to learn about it and the characters. Obviously it's a Lego game so it's all less serious.
The storyline is a good one and you travel from village to village towards the Dragon.
Start to end it's probally about 10 hours gametime.

Then as always you have other characters to buy, red bricks and quest.
But this game is different from the other Lego games I have played.
You need to collect stones, gems, carrots what not to craft items.
It's allot harder to get what you need for the other bricks.
So when you finish the game you have to do allot of hoarding and that I don't like and refuse to do.

But I had fun playing the game and learning about 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.

basically lego skyrim










Passed the campaign in like what, 10 hours? It was alright BARELY PASSABLE AS FINE.
lots of jokes that might entertain younger players, though.





Buy it at your own risk. It's not very well optimized, which isn't an extreme issue considering this is a lego game, but there are other reasons why I say this. The 3rd movie, which was supposed to be included with a complete purchase OF this game, is missing entirely. Even if it was included as DLC, it would be nice to have it in, and shows that this wasn't a complete waste of money.


This game can get very tedious at times. I like the fact that you can customize your characters, but it would take literal days to unlock everything. I'm not saying this is bad, but it isn't necessarily a good feature either. Most items are literally just a complete copy of each other, with a different texture.

DLC is not worth buying.

If you like these kinds of games, it might be worth it. I can't say for sure, I'm not a huge fan of these types of games. Download a save file with 100% completion (it isn't hard, just follow a few instructions) and unlock everything, depending on whether or not you bought the DLC. Proceed to do anything relatively kid-friendly, with an array of Hobbit-themed characters and items.



tl;dr
game is somewhat boring (my opinion) and runs worse on lower end computers
don't buy dlc (also my opinion)
download a save file for this game
have fun for about 40 minutes, depending on your age and likes
don't play for a long time. unless you somehow enjoyed this underwhelming pile of... glitches.

4/10 better if you're under the age of 10 and enjoy bad ports of console games

Like all LEGO games, the camera is frusturating, the controls sometimes malfunction, and there is no way to defend yourself in battles except to run. I did enjoy all the extra sidequests since they made me want to continue playing the game. The main story is not extremely difficult nor is the freeplay version. I'd recommend it, but my overall opinion is mixed.

Lego The Hobbit is a great lego game, one of the best so far. It contains cool minigames, has a good atmosphere and is replayable. Just what a Lego game should be like. The only problems with this games are some bugs in multiplayer when you completed the story and the lack of the last film, which is not included in the game
