The Hobbit review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of The Hobbit for GameCube. Released in 2003, this game was developed by Inevitable Entertainment and was published by Vivendi Universal. The Hobbit is based on the book of the same name and is not tied to any movie. While it does feature some frustrating controls and less than impressive combat, its tone and feel greatly resemble the book , something fans should love. Give this a try before the first half of the movie gets released in December! This video review features video gameplay footage of The Hobbit for GameCube and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Gabe.
