The Hobbit for Gamecube
Kidzworld reviews the adventures of Bilbo Baggins on the Nintendo Gamecube from before The Lord of the Rings movies!
In the Lord of the Rings movies, Frodo (Elijah Wood) is the heroic hobbit who fights the forces of the evil Sauron and his minions. But, before The Lord of the Rings brought Orlando Bloom to the screen as Legolas Greenleaf, the hobbit Bilbo Baggins was saving the day, and finding the One Ring. The Hobbit video game for the Nintendo Gamecube game console lets you control the brave lil' fella in the original quest to slay the dragon Smaug.
The Hobbit Gamecube Video Game - Little Facts
The adventures of Bilbo Baggins start in Hobbitown when Gandalf the Wizard arrives, just like in The Lord of the Rings. You get to control brave Bilbo as he fights the forces of evil orcs, goblins, spiders and the occasional troll. There's a lot of sword-swinging action, sneaking around, puzzle solving and, of course, item fetching.
The Hobbit Gamecube Video Game - Good Fun
There are plenty of cool things about The Hobbit video game. It's bright, cheerful, fun and there's always somewhere you can save your game. It's also really fun to see how Bilbo got the One Ring from Gollum.
The Hobbit Gamecube Video Game - Small Problems
The first problem is that Bilbo is totally keen on exploring the world and fighting orcs and goblins. What?!? The dude is the size of a pot roast and he knows it! This guy is way braver than any hobbit in The Lord of the Rings movies, and it's weird.
The Hobbit Gamecube Video Game - Final Word
If you've already finished The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, then pick this game up and give it a spin. It's a solid game, especially for Lord of the Rings fans, but it's nothing outstanding.
