Like Lego Marvel Superheros Lego Hobbit has a surprising open world to explore in addition to the story based missions that follow the events of the movies. This open world is where the real depth of the game is showcased. I have to continually remind myself to focus when heading to the next story mission because I easily get sidetracked by the numerous side quests that are available in the open world.

While not finished with the game thus far I have found the game covers very accurately covers the movies with a little bit of the child-level humor Lego games are known for. The voice work is all pulled from the movie so you're hearing the actual actors deliver their lines rather than a voice over guy trying to imitate Sir Ian McKellen. It really ads to the experience.

New to the Lego series with The Hobbit is the system of crafting and looting. This is what really sets the game apart from its predecessors and it promises hours of additional gameplay after you've finished the main story. With every item you smash for studs you can also get materials. You use those materials to fulfill side quests or create unique items via blacksmithing. The unique items require blueprints though so you have to find those in missions and in the open world. It promises to keep me busy for quite some time!

Overall I enjoy the gameplay, the story, and am pleasantly surprised with how much there is to do in the game. It is my new favorite entry in the Lego series.

It was a little disappointing that it only covers the first 2 films, but surprisingly the game lasted almost as long as a number of other LEGO games, with about 8 levels per the 2 movies.

The open world between levels is huge and covers a lot of the same locations as Lego Lord of the Rings, which are nearly identical, but then covers new areas that were unique to the Hobbit only. After finishing the first movie portion, you can fast travel by eagle to any statue location, and can watch the map zoom by below you as you do.

You can see little improvements that have accumulated in the LEGO games and even a new mining technique to collect loot for building LEGO objects or just trading with people as needed.

If you're a LEGO game fan and liked the Hobbit, it's a must-have!

I have nothing but good things to say, this is a great game for all ages, awesome graphics, the gameplay is flawless, it is hilarious, and some of the episodes are epic (like the Stone Giants Battle). I loved Lego Lord of The Rings and this is even better. I have been a Tolkien Fan for 48 years and just love the way the producers have made a game that does justice to the story, with a lot of nice touches. I have just finished the story line, and now for the exploring around, solving puzzles and getting Blacksmith Designs, etc.Highly Recommended.

Grandson loved it. He is 6 and has had a great time playing with his two older brothers.

I have never owned any of the Lego series games and this game is fantasic so far! It is enjoyable to watch the cinematics/cut scenes and game play is smooth. Only thing I don't like (and I won't drop a star) is the split screen. It can make you a little motion sick if you are not prepared for it.

Super fun! You can be all the characters from the movies (including Sauron, the Witch King, and even Frodo and Sam!)!! You can even play as Tom Bombadil, which tells me that true Tolkien fans made this game since he was never in any of the movies. :D The classic Lego silliness is in there, too, such as Bifur whipping out a teddy bear or Agog wearing a chef's hat. I really really really hope they do a game (either on its own or as DLC) for Battle of the Five Armies. Really fun game!
