    I love this game!

    Every single level is great. Although it can be hard at times when you figure it out you're like "Duh." If you are a Lord of the Rings fan you should definitely play this game. You get to fight alongside Beorn (bear for... Read Full Review

    Utterly terrible

    The Hobbit, you instantly think Lord of the Rings, but this is nothing like what EA made. The company that made this game was ether really lazy or had absolutely no idea what they were doing. The graphics are awful. You ... Read Full Review

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

    ok, i guess, but can DEFFINAETELY use some work.

    Being thirty years old and have read the books cover to cover at least ten times I have yearned for a video game that can hold up to Tolkiens vision. The hobbit is the only console game I have purchased to date in the JR... Read Full Review

    good game!

    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 TROLLS. THE GAME IS N... Read Full Review

    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 starters, this game i... Read Full Review

    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. However once you get p... Read Full Review

    Too long too boring.

    When I saw a billboard for this game I was very excited. I bought it the next day. But in the end. it S-U-C-K-E-D. It was a Legend Of Zelda Knockoff with a lord of therings twist. The game was way too long anyways. Sure ... Read Full Review

    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.

    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 sitting down with i... Read Full Review
