First Look at Lego The Hobbit

I’m a late convert to the Lego video games, something of a won over skeptic. They’re just kids games, collecting games, whatever, I thought. That was before I bought one on a Steam sale and realized that they’re collector games wrapped in a goofy parody of their subject matter, where the arrow that fells Boromir is a banana and every rock, bush, basket, and piece of furniture in Middle Earth must be smashed to pieces for the sweet, sweet studs inside. Momma needs to unlock Galadriel as a playable character.

    Absolutely agree, been involved with the Lego game series for awhile, and they’re all equally well done, even back when there was no actual dialog (just weird mumbly noises). One of the coolest perks about being a parent – you get to play all these games!

    <—- my custom character from Lego Marvel Heroes.
    I love the Lego games, even though they're often frustratingly buggy.

  • CyberIstari

    The bugginess is a little hit or miss – some are nearly flawless, others… (::cough::Lego Indiana Jones 2::cough::) But my AS son still adores the level builder in that, so still, worth the money.

  • Rachel Ripley

    firstly, I LOVE the lego video games. but… if this is coming out in 2014 does that mean it doesn’t cover all 3 films? because stretching the story of the hobbit over more than one game would be ridiculous. or will it be coming out right at the end of 2014 with the 3rd movie?

  • Angie Boo

    They are splitting the games. The first game will be movies 1 and 2 and the second game will be movie 3.
