    The Hobbit fairly successfully blends the gameplay of Mario and Zelda -- and that can only be good.

    THE HOBBIT IS A GOOD GAME, BUT IT'S MORE OF A SMALL KID'S GAME. IT IS FROM THE BOOK THAT CAME BEFORE THE L;ORD OF THE RINGS. YOU GET TO WALK AROUND AS BILBO BAGGGINS AND STEAL WALLETS FROM CAVE TRO...

    The hobbit brings an experience like no other, mind bending puzzles, intense battles, and great adventures!

    Well, this game was an amazing experience. The Hobbit really proves itself to be a tale of great journey and adventure, what better way to show it to us than to be able to play as Bilbo himself. For s...

    A fairly solid effort.

    The first part of the Hobbit is just okay, you have to go around and collect food to leave on your big quest. The graphics are okay, part cartoon, part real life. I wasn't overly impressed, though. Ho...

    The Hobbit can be enjoyable for a while, but in the end it's lacking that Tolkien magic that would make it a great game.

    Rated on December 03, 2006 by Nighthawk89

    The Hobbit was actually the first game I ever received for my Gamecube. I'd stopped playing it well over 2 years or so ago, but for some reason, I'd gotten the urge recently to take it up again. After...
