LEGO The Hobbit
Top Critic Average
Lego The Hobbit is, if not the best Lego game, then closely matched with the top entries in the series.
LEGO The Hobbit brings a bigger world, improved gameplay elements and a deeper gaming experience than thought possible with a LEGO game. If you like the LEGO games, then you need this one in your collection. It's certainly the best of the best amongst its LEGO brethren.
Probably one of the best Lego games out there, on par with the excellent Lego Marvel Superheroes. Worth a look, especially if you're a Tolkien fan.
Lego The Hobbit joins the ever growing Lego franchise with another adaptation from J.R.R Tolkien novels and the movie franchise of Peter Jackson. New gameplay mechanics introduced to the winning formula that we know and love
The more lighthearted tone of The Hobbit works great with the Lego style, with lots of fun moments
Lego the Hobbit complements both franchises
Warner Bros.' latest plastic block adventure is a blast, but also a bit misleadingly titled since it only covers the first two films.
A minor issue I found too was while playing co-op with my wife. The game lets you visit two different areas of the map and work on separate things, which is nice. However, if I was working on a specific quest and then my wife started talking to an NPC to gain a new quest, the game collapses the split screen and reads you the quest. This becomes increasingly annoying when one person is in the middle of doing something and a quest is started, sometimes accidentally. This would be fixed with an option for online co-op, however that has still not been realized in the series sadly.
Fans of Lego games will find more to love with Lego The Hobbit, as long as they're not growing weary of this increasingly familiar formula. There's nothing unexpected about this journey, but that doesn't make it any less enjoyable.
Overall, though, it's a solid rendition of the Lego formula. If you're a fan of the series or are looking for a family-friendly game to play with your kids, then Lego The Hobbit will likely be a precious experience for you.
