Product Description

Product Description

The Hobbit is a third-person action/adventure game set in the world of Middle-earth. 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Compulsive! 28 Jan 2005
By A Customer
This game came free with our PS2. My son turned up his nose at it (no gory shoot-outs)so I had a go and I can't put it down! The long levels are a challenge, but you can try and complete absolutely everything, or just a few basics and keep going. No you don't blast peoples heads off in a shower of gore, mostly you fight close-up with rocks and sword, but the real challenge is HOW you fight. Technique is everything. There's a real sense of achievement when the enemy finally succumbs in a blaze of colour!It's bright, fun and can be very frustrating. You can only save when you arrive at a save-station, and they are few and far between when you need them most! I haven't completed the game yet. What I can say is, it gets harder and harder so you think wow this is a little kid's game, but by the time you get to the 'Flies and Spiders' level you're really challenged! Absolutely ace! Maybe one day I'll let my son have a go!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Real Surprise! 4 Feb 2007
By Mr. S. W. Steel VINE VOICE
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game took me by suprise.I love the Tolkien world in terms of the books, films and the games, but didn't really like the look of this game.It looks too much like a children's game for a start, and wasn't really how i imagined the book.

HOWEVER......................

I loved it!!!What a great little game!It follows the book and does capture the feel of it very well.In essence this game is an old-school platformer.You are given missions to do by various characters to progress through the levels.You start in Hobbitton, meet the Trolls, go through the Misty Mountains (which are crawling with goblins), fight your way through Mirkwood and its' spiders, escape the Elf prison, visit Lake Town and finally meet Smaug the dragon!The only downside of these levels that they have missed out some opportunities - you don't really deal with Gollum enough, and a level with Beorn the shape-changer would have been great.There could also have been a level where you are stuck up the trees, avoiding the goblins and wargs, before being rescued by the eagles.But where this game makes up for those minor flaws is that it picks OTHER areas to give you some action.Lake Town was a surprise with some quite fun missions.So the game certainly ticks the boxes for me in terms of 'feel' of the book.

The graphics aren't amazing, but they do the job nicely.The landscapes and characters are pretty good, and the cut scenes are quite nice too.The voice-overs are good and the atmospheric music is ok, though sometimes you would like to make the guitarist stop on a couple of the levels.There are only so many times you can listen to a rustic folk tune on an endless loop!

The camera can be a bit awkward sometimes, but you don't mind so much as the game is really enjoyable.

4.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC 9 July 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is wonderful. As I am not a very experienced gamer, and do not have much to compare it to, I'm probably overrating it, but as far I can see it has few flaws. Each level is set somewhere different, whether it be the spider-inhabited forest, the wood elves' palace, Smaug's treasure chamber, a stormy mountain full of wolves or the goblin's fabulous workshop, full of lifts and pulleys and fiery furnaces. The game can be extremely challenging, with frustrating mental problems to solve and save 'pedestals' impossibly far away from each other, but this only makes the satisfaction greater when you complete a level.

Above all, this is a game not only of skill and technique (which is acquired gradually as you progress through the game) but a game where every character could be an enemy, where danger lurks behind every corner, and friendly dwarves are on hand to help - just like in the book 'The Hobbit'. And of course, best of all, you get to wear the ring.

3.0 out of 5 stars Generally a mixed bag. 16 Feb 2004
To mop up any confusion this is not a remake of the old 8 bit text RPG from the eighties (real shame) this is a brand new 3rd person action platform adventure with you in control of Bilbo Baggins
It's a game I really wanted to like more than I actually do, because there are several niggling problems.
1. Hobbit's have very small legs - Is a platform game really a suitable genre? Perhaps not, Bilbo cannot jump very far, and despite having a great walking stick/pole vault type super jump you will often find yourself falling to your death. Either via a chasm, or into a river. (Bilbo can't swim!!)
2. Bilbo isn't very 'hard'. Despite having three different weapons, walking stick, Sting (yes it glows brightly when goblins are near and helpfully lights the way in dark caverns) and throwing rocks, Bilbo has no block feature to speak of. Your offensive attacks increase in power and style as you progress, but most battles with three or more enemies will have you running away (you can't run very fast at all BTW) quicky hitting the target button throwing a few rocks then repeationg the procedure. This becomes more apparent the deeper into the game you get.
Despite these flaws, what this game does right, it does great. Most of the levels are huge, and you can just do the basics, or search around everywhere looking for more bonuses, graphics are pleasant all round (look out for that camera though) with some luscious cut scenes, and the music is truly fantastic and really sets the mood. It really depends on what you want to get out of it, if you're into great exploration then the game will last twice as long and present you with great satisfaction as the end level screen adds up your totals. If however you're easily put off by less than perfect controls and programming then steer clear. But for any hard core Tolkein fan, the opening level some justify the price alone.
