5.0 out of 5 stars if you loved the film, 7 Aug. 2014
The game represent's the movie, not the book and with that distinction out of the way, if you loved the film, loved other Lego titles, then you'll more than likely enjoy this game as part of your ever expanding Lego experience.

Lego has always tried to provide longevity with it's game, a repeatable factor that allow's you to play the story and finish, or continue on trying to complete all the location's hidden objectives and "The Hobbit" is no exception, though done slightly differently. Event's around the Shire and beyond, call you to help the people's of Middle Earth.

The Hobbit has a few changes, notably the buddy system, allowing you to combine character's to make special moves and the Blacksmith, introduced at Bree, giving you Mitheral clothing, weapons to seeking out strange new "Brewer's Hat" for a quest, whilst searching for those elusive character's, brick's, recipe's and Lego studs.

4.0 out of 5 stars One Season Wonder!, 20 April 2013
Last Resort, follow's Captain Marcus Chaplin (Andre Braugher) and the crew of USS Colorado, when asked to launch their nuclear payload at Pakistan after picking up a Navy Seal team. Stars Robert Patrick as Joseph Prosser, playing the Chief of the Boat and Sam Kendal (Scott Speedman) as XO.

Brilliant series that was cancelled after thirteen episodes in January 2013 but right upto the end, it's was well worth watching to the bitter conclusion. Thanks, must goto ABC for at least providing a closure, than leaving the few dedicated fan's hanging.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jericho Season 2, 23 May 2008
Continuing the epic story of the town called Jericho, after a series of terroist attacks were made against America's population centers, Jericho, a small town in central America, was fortunate to survive the trials and tribulations, making things work for themselves, but jealous neighbours planned against them for thier food and holdings, leaving the end of season one in a perilous situation.

Now, the fight for Jericho's survial takes a new twist in season 2 as the new Allied States of America, steps forward to take control whilst reinvigorating the people. However, not everything is as it seems leaving Jake and the townsfolk of Jericho, to step forward to meet new challanges and intresting plot twists. The story continues....

5.0 out of 5 stars A good yarn!, 22 Oct. 2007
If you really want a good story to tuck up to, wide variety of characters, fun and laughter, then you would do well to start with Magician by Raymond E. Feist and follow the story of Pug and Thomas as we follow their dreams and lives as they take unexpected twists and turns, resulting in what's now known as the Riftwar Saga.

First in a massive series, so enjoy the good yarn.

4.0 out of 5 stars LOTRO coming soon!, 9 April 2007
Do you really want to hear "It's not WoW"? Personally, if this game was anything like WoW, I probebly would rate it as a 1 or 2, however it's not WoW, it's a chance to live life and be part of the world of Middle-Earth.

It has a nice easy approach to entering it's world, through specific introductions on each race.... which leads again to set areas all designed to let you slip into the world, almost un-noticed.

Then the fun begins, with NPC's all requesting multiple quests, all dire and important to them, but allowing a chance for players to explore and learn thier local land, whilst often on your travels, completing quests without realising. Crafting is simplistic and will probebly take time to be improved to a point of possible major use, however, crafted armor can be better than loot drops.

As you grow and learn, you expand further, till at last, you stand in the Shadows of Angmar and the real struggles start for the peoples of Middle-Earth.

As I mentioned, it's not WoW and no-one should expect it to be. It's going to take some dedication and love from players and developers alike, but in time, could come to rival and move past WoW. I think personally, it will need an expansion to allow pvp and play orc/goblins(bit like city of hero's/villians) to really expand the real feeling of Middle-Earth, but in time that may come to pass.

Best advice I can give.... Make your own choice rather than reading reviews!

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing but has potential..., 22 Sept. 2006
This review is from: ArchLord (PC DVD) (Video Game)
I am a tester with the game and have been for some time. When I first started, I really enjoyed the game, it's easy to use, though movement was a little tedious with point and click.

Early missions are simple although, there is some translation errors that have not been adjusted yet, which kind of throws you out when reading descriptions of where to go, but with a modicum of good sense, map reading becomes easier when you know mistakes are there, but the blue ? location points do help for most missions.

Level 10 - 20 is fairly straight forward, balance is nice for missions and exploration and your introduction into PvP and the fights do get progressivily harder as you can imagine.

Lvl 20 + The grind. If you don't like Korean grind games, then this is where you start noticing the problem. 20 through 25 goes slow, but after that, a snail could probebly beat you in a race.

However, a game should not be about how difficult it is to grind, it's about longevity and things to do and the game does offer plenty, with additional events made by the GM's.

The warning I give is this though.... It's a heavily based PvP game and you could be running along after lvl 6 and BAM! killed by someone who is lvl 42. There is no distinction of barrier to the pvp, which can get problematic for some people with tempers that get frayed easily.

Overall, a pleasant game, with low but decent enough graphics with good options to tweak for speed or quaility. Standard missions typical of mmo's and nothing overly special.... but if your into player vs player combat and looking for challenges in gameplay and killing, then this is not a bad place to start looking.

Worth a look :)
