Are you a fan of the LEGO video games? The Hobbit came out last month, and being fans of the movie and The Lord of the Rings, we thought it would be fun to give it a try!
So we asked OWL reader and gamer Anna to play this game for us. Here’s what she had to say!
LEGO: The Hobbit was a difficult game to understand at first. At the beginning, there’s a 5-second cut-scene as an intro, and then the game starts with no explanation at all of the story line. You have to control two characters in the game, but you can only have one player play the game, so you have to control them at the same time. The text boxes were big, but the print was so small that it was hard to read even on a regular-size screen. My TV screen is 34 inches, and it was very hard to see the commands for which button to press. The things I liked about LEGO: The Hobbit were the graphics and music. They were really detailed and it showed that the producers actually worked hard on that. But even if you’re a Lord of the Rings fan, you may not enjoy this game. 3.5/10
Thanks for your review, Anna. Sounds like a tough game, but the graphics do look awesome!
