Platinum: Lego The Hobbit (PS3)

Fresh of the roll call, I added another platinum to my Playstation Collection.

You see, after a month long break, due to Dimensions, I finally managed to get that last 4% completion done in the game.

While I LOVE the Lego Tolkien franchise, and I thought the The Lord of The Rings game (which was responsible for getting me out of the Dark Ages to start with years ago) was awesome... The Hobbit was less so.

Not that it is a bad game, not at all, and some puzzles for mithril bricks are rather challenging, but it has one big flaw.

The camera movement sucks, making some obstacle courses a real frustration run.  I spend more then 1.5 hour tonight for the bloody rope and balance race around the rooftops of Rivendell for example, as the screen just didn`t angle well to estimate the jump. 

On the other hand, it does tell the tale of the first two movies in the nice and funny way... though it remains a shame that initially promised DLC content for the third and final film, Battle of the Five Armies, never materialised.

But it did have Tom Bombadil at least (though not as `uber` a character as he was in LOTR).  Never the less, my most used characters in freeplay where Tauriel (Elves, like in the LOTR game, are a bit of the best choice, and if you need to choose between her and Legolas...) and Bifur (for all the ore mining needed to forge things).

A funny and good storyline game all in all, with some great (and hilarious at times) side quests... but it remains a shame for the camera thingie.
