Cette adaptation GBA parvient à restituer fidèlement la trame de l'oeuvre originale, même si les développeurs se sont permis de nombreux écarts plus ou moins bien vus pour rallonger la durée de vie. Le soft s'en sort finalement très bien avec un gameplay réussi et une aventure relativement longue.
Mit Der Hobbit wird unterhaltsame Rätselkost mit der Vorgeschichte zu Der Herr der Ringe geboten. Die coole Fantasie-Atmosphäre wird von den teilweise lustigen Sprachsamples und der guten Hintergrundmusik sehr gut unterstützt. Lediglich die karge Levelgestaltung langweilt die Augen nach einiger Zeit, auch wenn die Umgebungen recht nett gezeichnet wurden.
All in all, the game is a decent addition to the Tolkien game archive. While a bit light on the 'wow' factor, the weapons system and puzzles are handled well enough to keep you playing until the end. The game has all the elements of a great quest -- what keeps it a bit lacking though is that nothing you do in the game really feels all that important. It's an enjoyable time, but most of the battles and quests feel rather trivial. However the art and sound, while at times a bit disjointed were certainly well thought-out and flesh out your little hobbit world quite nicely.

The Hobbit is not a bad game, or a glitchy game. It's just not a particularly inspired game.

Huruvida man gillar Bilbo eller ej spelar egentligen mindre roll när man spelar, det är nämligen ytterst lite av berättelsen som kommer fram i spelet. Ibland får man någon liten dialog från boken, men för det mesta handlar det om att springa omkring, dra i spakar och slå djur med en pinne. På pappret fungerar upplägget, i praktiken blir det bara segt.
