Summary: Another month, another LEGO game. These things are starting to be more frequently released than yearly Call of Duty games. And with that frequency comes some caveats, such as this month's title only including the two Hobbit films that have been released thus far. Does that put a damper on the entertainment value found within? Only time -- or reading on -- will tell.
Excerpt: It's another Lego game! Beyond a new setting and some minor tweaks, it’s the same old 'smash everything in sight until something important jumps out' gameplay, mixed with lovingly-crafted Lego interpretations of the source world and ironic humour. In many ways Traveller's Tales hasn’t lost the ability to tap into the heart of a series and give it a Lego-style spin that seems perfectly suited to it – almost as if Tolkien had intended small block people to become the...
Conclusion: Though its glitches and control problems are disappointing and often frustrating, LEGO The Hobbit is fun from start to finish. It’s filled with LEGO-style detail that charmed me immediately, and the action-focused levels are satisfying and engaging. The puzzles are nothing special and relatively predictable, but that doesn’t stop it from being an adventure fit to bear the LEGO name.
Summary: LEGO The Hobbit is what everyone expected, which can be good or bad depending on your exposure to the series. There is plenty to enjoy here for Middle-Earth fans, children, and those who haven’t been burnt out yet by the series, but for those who were hoping for a fresh take on the LEGO video game experience there are few unique experiences to be had.
Pros: The game looks and sounds better than any LEGO title yet, There are some truly great laughs to be had, No shortage of content
Cons: Largely the same old song and dance, Some tedious gameplay elements, Incomplete story due to only including two films within the planned trilogy
Summary: Harry Potter, Batman and Star Wars are just a number of the major blockbuster film series to receive a LEGO videogame makeover. TT Games has a tried and tested formula that has worked again and again and it doesn't look like they are stopping any time soon.
Pros: Material collecting is a nice addition, Wide range of characters, Effective co-operative play
Cons: Incomplete story, Lacks the charm of previous LEGO titles, Level durations are uneven
Excerpt: Se há algo que tem de ser reconhecido à TT Games, é que as suas adaptações de licenças e mundos já conhecidos ao universo da Lego são normalmente exímias. Não precisámos de muito tempo com a versão PS4 de Lego The Hobbit para perceber que o jogo faz justiça e respeita tremendamente a versão de Peter Jackson da Terra Média. É difícil não esboçar um sorriso rasgado quando olhamos pela primeira vez para as versões Lego do Shire e de Rivendell.
Pros: Esta versão Lego da Terra Média é fantástica. O humor pode ser apreciado por todos, independentemente da idade. Está recheado de colecionáveis e conteúdo. Aproveita bem a licença dos filmes.
Cons: O design dos níveis devia ser mais simples e evidente. Por vezes é um pouco confuso. Implora por uma localização portuguesa.
Pros: Ambientes detallados. Conserva el marco básico de los juegos de LEGO. El modo cooperativo agrega rejugabilidad.
Cons: Diseño de puzzles pobre y poco imaginativo. Problemas de input y de registro. Disminución del humor y el ingenio presentes en otros juegos de LEGO. Sistema de habilidades y crafting poco interesante.
Excerpt: Nog niet zo heel erg lang geleden kwam ik pas echt in aanraking met de LEGO games. LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes was de allereerste LEGO-titel waar ik echt behoorlijk wat uurtjes mee doorbracht en het was ook gelijk de eerste in een reeks van velen.
Pros: Feest der herkenning met onverwachte humor, Midden-Aarde is een toffe omgeving, Weer heel veel te verzamelen, Het Buddy-Up systeem is een leuke toevoeging
Cons: Het loot-systeem voegt daarentegen weinig toe, Niet heel erg veel uitdaging, Niet altijd even overzichtelijk
