The Hobbit

9 October 2005
  • Excerpt: Christmases don't get much better than this for Tolkien fanatics. Not only can you enjoy the delights of EA's Return of the King game, but Vivendi are also stepping up to the fray with a Middle-Earth-inspired offering, in the form of The Hobbit.

  • Conclusion: The main quests themselves are not that bad and can be fun, but side quests quickly get annoying especially when it has no relevance to the actual storyline. Controls aren’t great but are manageable.

The Hobbit

5 December 2004
  • Conclusion: As said earlier I am unable to say just how close the game is to the book but it is a very nice little game and is rather enjoyable. The look of the game may put a fair few people off and it's not going to appeal to those wanting another arcade beat em up, this won't be everyone's cup of tea but...
  • Pros: Tidy, colourful graphics., Feels right., Good camera.
  • Cons: The presentation may put people off.

Expert Review

30 January 2005
  • Conclusion: Leider hat es Vivendi wieder nicht geschafft, die Fantasie-Welten von J.R.R. Tolkien ordentlich in Videospielform umzusetzen. Zu bieder sind Technik und Rätsel. Herr der Ringe-Fans können dennoch einen Blick riskieren, denn das Spiel bietet durchaus Abwechslung für einige Stunden.
