This game is great if you're looking for an easy, and addictive, game. There are some pretty cool stealth missions. It's probably not worth buying, however. The game is rather short. And there isn't very much replay value. So, this is an awsome game to rent, but not to buy. P.S. this game is also good if you get queasy at the sight of (you know what,i'm not allowed to use the actual word), because there is none.

As Classic as the Book

It may not follow the book exactly, it may not have the best graphics, and it may not have the best combat, but if you're letting the idea that this game won't be perfect keep you from trying it out, you have no idea what you're missing. The way the game is presented is fantastic, the worlds are imaginative and fairly well detailed for the PS2 era, combat, while not perfect, still flows well, and the game blends with the timeless tale The Hobbit in a way to stay faithful to the source, while still being an original experience on its own.
Also worthy of note is the music.
I'm a true fan of video game soundtracks, and few compare to the pure brilliance that is this game's music. A blend of deep orchestrated pieces, old-time country flutes and guitars, and even an oompah song or two, harmonize brilliantly with the games environments to provide a deep level of immersion not often found with games. If you loved the book, if you love video game music, heck, if you love trying something out of the public eye, definitely give The Hobbit a look. You won't regret it.

Really Bad

Big let down

I have the PC version of this game. And I thought it would be cool to try the PS2 version. ( Because, you know I figured it would be different.) But it's EXACTLY the same! And I was disappointed. So if you have the PC version, or have tried it and do not like it, then I suggest you DO NOT RENT THIS GAME!!!
