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.
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.
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.

Excerpt: Predictably, after the Lego version of the Lord of the Rings movies a couple of years ago, comes Traveller’s Tales Lego take on The Hobbit. Available on all major consoles new and old, The Hobbit stays true to the Lego formula and offers plenty of fan service for those who loved the films.
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...
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
Summary: Con título que puede llevar a error a quien no esté al corriente de los planes de TT Games y Warner para introducir mediante DLC de pago el contenido de la tercera película El Hobbit: Partida y Regreso, este nuevo LEGO sigue la previsible línea que todos los anteriores, mezclando bastante bien...
Pros: Como siempre, el humor y la reinterpretación desde el prisma LEGO., Montones de coleccionables, personajes y piezas especiales que invitan a ser recogidas., Variedad de zonas, misiones y mecánicas de juego adicionales a la acción., Momentazos, paisajes, música y rostros de la película de Jackson.
Cons: El sistema de combate llega a hacerse monótono., Le vendría muy bien modo online., Se parece en exceso a los demás LEGO, la marca se agota y no sorprende.
