LEGO The Hobbit is based on the first two films of The Hobbit Trilogy, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, productions of New Line Cinema and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures (MGM). Additional content based on the third film, The Hobbit: There and Back Again, is planned to be available at a future release date.
LEGO The Hobbit will take players on epic quests and a variety of adventures as they explore key locations from the films, such as Lake-town, Dale, Erebor, Bag End, Goblin-town, Mirkwood, Rivendell and the treacherous High Pass over the Misty Mountains. Fans will also assume the roles of their favorite characters, including Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf, and the Dwarves of Erebor: Thorin, Fíli, Kíli, Óin, Glóin, Dwalin, Balin, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Dori, Nori and Ori, each possessing a unique and hilarious ability. One of the main new features of the game allows players to utilize the Dwarves’ combined abilities such as buddy fighting, two-player attack, staff climb, mace swing and belly bounce to help them fight Orcs and fouler things or to progress through the game.
Friends and family will enjoy discovering Middle-earth through the easy access drop-in, drop-out gameplay option available on the consoles. Together players will navigate 16 levels, unlock more than 90 playable characters and partake in diverse treasure quests, mine for gems, discover loot from enemies, craft powerful magical items, and collect objects as they triumph in a game of riddles and discover the power of The One Ring.

So far about 14.5% through story mode and it seems pretty big, with plenty of gaming still to go. Never even bothered with free play mode yet. One small complaint is that the game almost plays its self at some points, particularly with the cooperative moves, where you combine different characters abilities. Would be better if it wasn't quite as easy.
However, it's still very playable and has plenty of variety to keep you entertained.
The gameplay is similar to other Lego games, and you control a character – with over 90 to select from – as you proceed to engage in a series of missions. There’s lots of fighting, object-building, and puzzle solving. Each character has unique abilities, and there are lots to choose from, such as: Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf, and the Dwarves of Erebor: Thorin, Fíli, Kíli, Óin, Glóin, Dwalin, Balin, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Dori, Nori and Ori. And there are many different environments to play in, such as: as Lake-town, Dale, Erebor, Bag End, Goblin-town, Mirkwood, Rivendell and the High Pass over the Misty Mountains.
The story follows that of the films, being based on “An Unexpected Journey” and “The Desolation of Smaug”. Unfortunately, the third film in the series – “The Battle of the Five Armies” – is not included (nor is it available as DLC). The more serious elements of the movies are not included in the game, and instead it develops a more humorous approach.
The graphics are good, as is the audio quality, on the PS3. This is a well-made game, and brings to life – as only Lego can – the fun and adventure of the film series. It took me about 10 hours of casual play to complete the story (and I think it would take about 100 hours of re-playing the game to finish every aspect of it) – so there’s lots of stuff to do. If you’re a fan of the Hobbit films, and you enjoy the Lego videogames, then I fully recommend this game.
Two things I'm not quite taken with is that they've added the 'build' tasks (first found with the 'Lego Movie' game) and also you have to complete all levels before free roaming is allowed around the huge map area.
Neither, though, should detract from what is a very enjoyable game for all ages.
Lego games are glitchy in places but the overall enjoyment of them is, for me anyone, enough to over look the odd game freeze and restart. But to lie to consumers, when they are quite content to sell you more DLC characters rather than allow you to finish the game, that is when glitches, a long and boring drawn out campain and the most dull set of standard characters of any lego game should be pointed at and highlighted repeatedly.
Should they decide to complete the game like they promised (Unlikely now as it has been two years and no future movies are planned), I will delete this review but as it stands, do not buy this game without knowing you are only buying two thirds of a game you were promised.
