TT Games release a new Lego Game every year and it can be hard to keep a franchise fresh. Sure, every new game brings with it a few new features to keep it interesting, but it is usually the same gameplay over and over again. Well Lego The Hobbit does away with all that, and manages to keep the traditional Lego styled gameplay, while revitalising the franchise and mixing in some really cool RPG elements. Coupled that with The Hobbit’s timeless story, and brilliant voice acting and you’ve got yourself a complete package that might just be the best game of the year so far.
