In the months leading up to the release date, I became very anxious for this game. I always liked the story of the Hobbit, ever since the first time I listened to the audio book. I could never stand to actually read any of Tolkein's writing myself, but if it was read to me, it wasn't that bad."

Description

"The Hobbit" is a third-person action/adventure game set in the world of Middle-earth. In the game, you take the persona of Bilbo Baggins, an unassuming Hobbit who has been unwittingly thrust into an epic adventure. Explore the mystical world of Middle-earth where you'll need to jump gaping chasms, climb treacherous mountains, solve mind bending puzzles and battle hordes of enemies just to survive. Meet enchanting Elves, battle-ready Dwarves, a powerful Wizard, massive Trolls, bloodthirsty goblins, and more as you traverse from the peaceful lands of the Shire to the harrowing forests of Mirkwood. And that's just the beginning.

Overall: A fun game - definately suited for a console system, though. I got the PC version and my hand hurt after 1 hour of play.
This game has a lot of potential to attract a mature, JRR Tolkien fan, but is aimed at the youngsters. Unfortunately, this isn't evident until you open the box.
If you want a fun, playful romp solving puzzles and jumping around in a beautifully-rendered world with cool background music, this is the game for you...
If you are looking forward to a dark role-playing game starring the most famous Hobbit in Middle Earth, look elsewhere.
Gameplay: "Sonic Meets Legend of Zelda" based on the gameplay and the way the protagonist (Bilbo) interracts with the NPCs and collects "courage" and "pennies."
As bad guys are vanquished, they explode into a puff of air, but there is no gore.
This game is easy to move around in and the Hobbiton section of the game as well as a combat dream sequence teaches you everything you'll need to match wits with Smaug the Dragon (much) later in the game.
Graphics: The characters are quite lively, and the NPCs are well rendered, but the "Jimmy Neutron" look is a little too plastic sometimes.
The cinematics are quite entertaining, and the 3D rendering, effects, and physics are quite good considering the complexity of the world you are in.
Sound: The sound track is great. The effects are realistic and dimensional, whether they are ambient sounds, voice acting, or the musical score.
Suggestions: Market this game to kids, not adults!
