About

LEGO The Hobbit is another installment in the LEGO series of games adapted from popular movie franchises. It is based on the first two films in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit film trilogy, that was, in turn, adapted from John R.R. Tolkien's book of the same name. Like with all LEGO games, its visual style imitates a world that is entirely made of LEGO constructions and inhabited by mini-figures.

Plot

The game follows the plot of the movies rather than the original book. LEGO The Hobbit recreates The Hobbit story using voice samples from the movies, while also parodying it with the addition of the tongue-in-cheek humor. The plot takes place in the high fantasy world of Middle-Earth. Bilbo Baggins, the main protagonist, is a hobbit. He lived a peaceful life until one day a company of thirteen dwarves and the wizard named Gandalf called him to join them on an adventure. Bilbo and his new friends left out on a quest to reconquer the dwarves' home, the Lonely Mountain, and its treasures from the wicked dragon Smaug.

Gameplay

The player controls the Thorin's party, switching between characters when needed. Each character has his unique abilities, such as climbing or shooting arrows. The game is divided into a series of short, linear levels that correspond to certain scenes in the movies. On the way, the player has to smash objects made of LEGO and sometimes use them to assemble new objects. The game also has a cooperative multiplayer for two.

LEGO The Hobbit reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Again, this Lego game is a Success. To achieve 100% of all Achievements, it takes almost 50 Hours, but the Story can be played through much faster (8 Hours is likely to accrue with a normal Style of Play). STORY The Story is who would have thought it taken from the Hobbit motion pictures. This is interspersed in typical Lego fashion with a vigorous sprinkling of Humour that is also appealing and suitable for younger Audiences. Unlike other Lego games, but as in its Predecessor LEGO Lord of the Rings, the Lego characters come with Voice-over and therefore don't just refer to Tolkien's History with Hands and Feet. What bothers me, as with other Lego games, is the Fact that they basically relate only to the Movies rather than the Reading. This is particularly noticeable here by Azog the Schänder, who actually only played a Mini-role in the Book. Thanks to the above Voiceover, the Story is also mostly comprehensible to Non-connoisseurs. ACTION: The Game ONLY includes THE Films "An Unexpected Journey" and "Smaug's Unöde." "The Battle of the 5 Heers" will probably still be released as DLC this Quarter (15/1). Whether and how much this will cost is not yet clear. GRAFIK The Graphics are acceptable as usual. The Environments are kept in a real Style that comes across with pleasant Textures, Lego objects have beautiful Light Reflections, only the Anti-aliasing settings should offer a higher Selection (Gives only "On" and "Off," causes on large Screen Have a medium-strength Staircase effect). For a Game of the Lego series again beautiful to look at, however it is clear from the outset that the Game does not want to shine with life-like Graphics. SOUND The Music was taken directly from the Films and therefore comes with usual high Quality, just like the Voices. Sound Effects are the usual Lego video game effects that serve their Purpose. Some Non-film characters, which you encounter more often, often have little different Lines of text, and therefore often repeat themselves. Particularly annoying are the Wife of the Blacksmith and the Blacksmith herself. At this Point, I was actually compelled to look at the Game. OPEN WORLD The open Game world is once again full of Side Missions, Mini-games and Collectibles. Some May be less charted, but right here we often find funny Gags, interesting Game concepts and hilarious Items. The World, like LEGO Lord of the Rings, is based on Tolkien's Maps. Some Areas have been taken over by the Basic Structure from the Predecessor, but change to, for example, the Caves that are important for Side missions. NEBENMISSIONS AND OTHER CONCENSE ALSO this Lego part comes back with the Orders in Middle Earth where you citizens should do your Services. These also often chain up to contiguous Chains of Missions that you have to complete one by one. There are about 5 different Basic Concepts on which they are based, but most of the time you only have to get Objects that you have forged or found in Levels. What is new is the construction and forging Mini-game and the Resource system. In the construction Mini-game, you build various Objects from collected Resources by selecting the right Parts that are displayed to you in the Construction Window. The faster you can do this, the higher the stud reward you will receive in the End. When You play a Forging Mini-game, all you have to do is press the right Buttons at the right Moment. The Resources are Raw Materials that you can find or mine throughout the Game world. You then need them for Forging, Building or side Missions. However, it is annoying if you do not have them at this Very moment and then have to move on, in some cases the Requirements for Raw Materials are also outrageously high. OVERALL, LEGO The Hobbit is a solid Game that adds some new Features to its basic Concept. Whether these are necessarily advantageous, however, remains to be seen. What I find Disturbing, however, is that the Game was released before the Release of the last Movie And is basically incomplete. 8/10 Points
