YMMV / The Hobbit (2003)

The Hobbit (2003)

  • Demonic Spiders: The green spiders. Who else? Especially considering they're the descendants of Ungoliant, who is pretty close to a demon.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • You can hear some elves in the background wondering if there are any beardless dwarves. There are some (almost) in the film trilogy.
    • The game features a female Mirkwood elf, similar to Tauriel from the films. The plot of Bilbo warning someone of a goblin attack during the final battle was also used in the films.
  • Tear Jerker: The game is mostly a brightly-colored, action-adventure version of Tolkien's book. Then you get to Mirkwood, and meet Corwin, a soldier from Laketown, whose entire party was just killed by spiders, including his brother. The music alone will tear your heart out.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: Balfor doesn't appear in the final chapter, despite being a dwarf of the Iron Hills. Dáin never appears either and is only mentioned once in the whole game.
    • Beorn's house and Rivendell only appear in the game boy advance version.
