The Fellowship of the Ring

The Two Towers

The Return of the King

The Battle of Pelennor Fields

The level begins with a bang! You’re riding on a horse through the Orc armies. Just keep attacking and enjoy the show.

Before long the Black Rider arrives to ruin the fun. In this battle, you’ll have Merry and Eowyn to fight the evil dragon-like creature.

The Nazghul’s mount will attack by smashing its wings into the ground to make black energy hone in on you. Or, it will screech, temporarily stunning anyone that gets too close.

Fight off the Orcs that try to attack, and wait for the Nazghul’s monster to bash it’s head onto the ground. When it does, you’ll see a glowing Lego brick on the head while it is stunned. This is your chance to attack.

Attack the head three times in a row while it’s stunned. Follow this pattern two more times, and the Rider himself will appear and attack.

The Rider is no push-over. He swings his giant mace and sends black energy honing in on you. To hurt him, construct the hopping bricks on the right side of the arena to form a brown Lego floor.

You’ll notice there are pointers aiming at these brown Lego floors. Stand on them, and wait for the Rider to attack. If he gets close, move away just as he begins to swing the mace.

If the mace lands on the Lego floor, he’ll be stuck. Use Eowyn to attack the Rider while he’s stuck. Destroy one of the plants on the forward-left section of the arena to uncover another brown Lego floor to use.

Hit him three times this way, and he’ll grab Eowyn. While she’s held, switch to Merry and interact on the gold circle. That will free Eowyn.

What did he say? “No man may kill me.” Switch to Eowyn once she’s free, stand in the gold circle, and interact to finish this monster off once and for all.

In the following scene, Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli are on the scene. Switch to Legolas and shoot arrows into the two Arrow-slots on the legs of the elephant.

Once both arrows are in, jump to the low slot, then to the high slow. Turn around, then jump to the rope and climb up to fight up close and personal with the bad guys on this elephant.

Defeat all four soldiers, then jump up and defeat the tamer. A gold circle will appear, allowing Legolas to interact and finally defeat one of the two elephants.

The second elephant is protected by Morgul Lego objects around its ankles. Smash one of these with Aragorn to make the elephant fall down. Now, mash the attack button to defeat the second elephant.

Three more elephants will arrive! But, you know what to do. Defeat the elephants with Morgul Lego objects by destroying the objects with Aragorn, then mashing attack.

The other type of Elephant requires Legolas. Shoot two arrows into the slots, jump up and climb the rope, then defeat the guards. Defeat the tamer at the top, then interact with the gold circle that appears to finish this monster off.

Defeat all three new elephants, and you’ll complete the level. Off to Mordor and the Black Gate!


Follow the path running alongside the city until you reach the river. There’s a boat, use Legolas to shoot the target here, lowering the bridge across.

Ride through the mountains and into the swamps. The ghostly studs will show you to a narrow bridge that Legolas and the rest can cross, but not on foot.

Switch to Legolas, ahead you’ll find four targets in the water. To cross through the marsh, shoot each target with an arrow to create a new platform. Jump from platform to platform, and you’ll reach solid ground. It’s just a straight shot out of the marshlands.

Riders are waiting for you through the pass ahead. When you rejoin them, the next mission will begin.

    Question: you say above “Now, you begin a new level proper with four Hobbits in your team. You’ll have Frodo, Sam, Merry and Pippin together.”… but I only have Frodo and Sam. That means when I get to the fishing part, I’m completely stuck – because I don’t have a character who can fish.

    I’ve tried restarting, but it only lets me restart back to the Gandalf fight, and when I make it back to the Hobbits… again, only Frodo and Sam are there.

    Any suggestions on what I can do? Even if I have to force restart the whole level to try again, fine – but I can’t even get it to do that.

    Use Gollum to do the fishing!

    In this taming Gollum level, I cannot switch weapons with Frodo’s to choose the light so that I can go in the cave. I’m not really sure what to do next since I can’t access that fish without it. Any suggestions?

    If you’re unable to switch weapons/items, try simply walking into the dark cave with Frodo. He’ll automatically take out his light for you, which is really handy.

    Let me know if that helps, or if you encounter any other problems.

    Regarding the checkered pattern of Lego bricks with the boulder: you have to give the boulder a good push so that it falls, then topples over to create a path for Isildur. If you just nudge it off the pattern, the boulder will stand up in the lava and not topple. If this happens, restart the level and really put your shoulder into it next time, Elrond.

    Melissa, regarding using the fishing pole, you can play any combination of the four Hobbits (use Z or C to change characters). You just can’t be the same Hobbit at once.

    Melissa — I had the same issue and finally figured out the answer. You actually can play with all four characters on the Wii version (and most likely all versions of course), even though it only shows two at a time. You start with Frodo and Sam, but if you hold down “C” you can switch characters and pick Merry. This allows you to fish and move throw the river portion of this level. I hope that helps!

    In ‘The Path Of The Dead’ I beat the ghost all the times but then he just keeps floating to where the platforms where

    does anyone know if there is any way that I can stop this happening because I restarted the game and it happened again
    Please help.

    Are you fighting the ghost leader at the end of the level? If so, make sure you hit him with Aragorn’s sword during the fight — can you give a little more description? I’ll try to help however I can.

    Thanks for the comment, Kerry!

    what is used to break shining objects through out the game

    Kevin Thielenhaus

    On February 19, 2013 at 3:00 am


    There are two ways to break shiny objects. You can buy fireworks at the mithril shop, if you can unlock it — or you can buy the Berserker character after finishing Helm’s Deep during the campaign. Either of those explosive choices should allow you to destroy shiny bricks.

    I am on the level and I accidently played as Frodo the whole time and now Sam can’t wear any armor. What can I do? Frodo has both helmets and breast pieces and we aren’t disguised.

    Sadly, you might need to restart from the beginning. I had to do the same thing while playing, make sure you collect the armor in order. I collected the armor out of order my first time, and some weird bugs show up that’ll stop your progress dead.

    I’m stuck at the end of level three….the pass of caradhras….have put the pieces in the door, built the fire pit and collected two of the fire pieces. But the one behind the “wood wall” I can not get to. Walkthrough says to just smash it….have tried every character available to me and no one breaks it….really getting frustrated….any suggestions. Have restarted level already.

    Stuck in the Mines of Moria:
    We are stuck in the Mines of Moria. We have smashed the two chests and finished the well. We have unlocked the chest with the key and found the gear. We have smashed the wall and found the crank. We have installed the gear and the crank (in that order). Once the crank is in place, we get the sign to turn it and can see the little meter, but the crank will not turn. ALl the characters go to the crank and put their hands on it, but it does not turn. We have tried all available characters. We have gone back several times and tried completing the various sections in a different order, but nothing seems to work. The game was purchased from a chain store. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Weird. We’re having the same problem as Kerry a year ago. At the end of Paths of the Dead, we kill the King of the Dead on the first platform, then on the second. Then we build the four columns for the third stage. We fight him atop each platform, then he destroys it and keeps flying from platform location to platform location, including the platforms that have already been destroyed. After fighting him on the fourth platform, he destroys that one too, but keeps flying around.

    I just watched a video walkthrough, and there, as soon as the King was defeated on hte fourth platform, it went to a cutscene without showing him destroying that platform. So I think we must have a buggy version of the game. Is that possible?
