Another Lego game!! YES! I have played all the Lego games that have come out. So fun. Just easy going games that really everyone can play. This one adds some new features that the other Lego games don't have. For example you now collect items to make objects. So when you shop bushes you get logs/rope and then use those items in the game to make something. One thing that did annoy me about this game is why Lego didn't just wait until the third movie came out to release this game? This is because the game only includes the first two movies (Hobbit/Desolation of Smaug) and not the third movie. The game was released in April they could've waited a few more months. Is the Battle of the Five Armies Lego game going to be on one game now? Or will Lego re-release this game and include that movie in it? Who knows!
I love that this video game has the same humorous feeling that the other Lego games have. I usually laugh out loud a few times while playing these games. In this particular Lego game you have to go on a mission to find the black smith and help him out. This became frustrating because I would have rather had the black smith available earlier in the game so I could build more objects sooner in the game and not have to go back and replay some sections once the black smith was available. Most of the parts in the movies are present in the game.. including the barrel scene which lasted a little longer then it should've.
There is also a find the missing piece game added to this Lego game which is different from the other Lego games out there. The faster you find the piece the more gold money you get. This was fun and a great edition (the Lego Movie game had this feature also). Another feature in this game is that the characters do a two person attack. So the dwarfs will link arms together and break something or attack a creature. There is also campfires located around that change the game from day to night. This prompts different types of game play to take place.
I enjoyed this game and I like that Lego keeps putting out these games and adding just a few new features in each game to keep things interesting. If you haven't given the Lego games a chance this is a fun one and you should give it a go. B+
