                    Three rings for the Elves under the sky,
               Seven for the Dwarf Lords in their halls of stone,
                    Nine for the Mortal Men doomed to die,
                   One for the Dark Lord  on his dark throne
                  In the land of Mordor where the Shadows lie,
                One ring to rule them all. One ring to fine them,
             One ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
                 In the land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
    
    In early Middle-Earth there were master rings forged to help the races govern
    themselves. They were all decieved though, for a ring above all the others
    was forged, The Dark Lord Sauron forged it in the center of Mount Doom. He
    took control of the lands until an alliance of Humans and Elves battled it
    out....
    
    On the grounds of Mount Doom Humans and Elves joined forces to stop the Dark
    Lord. As Isildur's father is killed by Sauron the Dark Lord he picks up his
    father's sword and slices the ringed hand off destroying everything. The 
    race of men is weak though, instead of destroying the ring in the fires of 
    Mount Doom Isildur kept it. One day while riding on his horse (now king) he
    was attacked by orcs. The ring was thrown into the bottom of a lake where it
    remain for 2500 years. On a riverfolk named Smeagle's birthday him and his 
    friend went fishing in the river. His friend pulled up the ring and because
    riverfolk are attracted to shiny things Smeagle went insane and killed his
    friend for the ring.
    
    Eventually Smeagle was kicked out of his community and took the name of 
    Gollum and took refuge in a Goblin Mountain. There he was corrupted by the 
    ring for 500 years until Bilbo Baggins on his journey (read the Hobbit for
    information on his journey) met him deep inside Goblin Mountain. Bilbo found
    the ring on the dark ground and once Gollum found out tried to attack him, 
    but by flipping on the ring Bilbo disappeared and escaped the Mountain. 
    Bilbo remained alive for a very long time, even for a Hobbit, and on his
    100th birthday he gave the ring to Frodo, his adopted son.
    
    The ring was soon discovered by Gandolf to be the "One Ring" and frodo must
    go to Rivendale, the home of the elves. After a long journey with Sam, 
    Pippin, Merry, and Aragorn (met along the way) they finally reached 
    Rivendale where they held a councel. After much debating it was Frodo who 
    would take the ring to Mount Doom along with the "Fellowship of the Ring".
    The Fellowship took off and because of Saruman (now allied with Sauron) had
    to go into the Mines of Moria where the game starts off.

    ':*:'                    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=                    ':*:'
    =============================================================================
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    =  Aragorn the Human Ranger =
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Aragorn, also known as Strider is the decendant of Isildur, though he is 
    nothing like him. He is known as an outsider by his race, and many other 
    things across the land. Skilled both in the Bow and the Sword he is a very 
    tough opponent. As a character in the game, he is probably my favorite. He 
    is decently fast, and his attacks are good all around, if you're new to this
    game you _MUST_ be him, since he is well rounded. The only problem that I 
    ever have with him is that sometimes he is too generic making it difficult to
    kill some enemies that you need say a high bow damage to defeat eaisly.
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    = Legolas the Elvish Archer =
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Legolas, the Immortal elf. All elves are immortal, only being able to die in
    battle or if killed by a related way. He is the best character long ranged 
    wise, and he can have 60 arrows opposed to 30 for the other characters. He is
    also quite fast, though his close ranged attack is severely lacking. Because 
    of his unbalanced stats he is only good in a few missions, but in those 
    missions he is _VERY_ good. If you think Aragorn is a bit too generic then I
    suggest trying Legolas.
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    = Gimili the Dwarven Axeman =
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Gimili is one of the highest ranking Dwarves, that isn't really saying much 
    though. Dwarfs aren't very kind to outsiders and prefer to be locked up in
    their mines, but they are very skilled with the axe. Gimili is basically, the
    worst character. He is strong, but slow, and his long ranged attack is useless.
    the only time you would want to use him would be when you want a real challenge
    or if you are in the like one level he is good in. I suggest just ignoring him
    for the most part of the game :).

    =============================================================================
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    = Cave Troll ==
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Big, slow-witted, and dangerous, the cave troll is an awkward brute that 
    might not be taken seriously if it weren't so horrifying. Its strength is 
    legendary, its speed deceptively fast, and its thick hide and strong 
    constitution make fighting one an epic event. Thankfully, its decision making
    skills are lacking, and Cave Trolls despise direct sunlight. Check the 
    walkthrough for advice on beating them.
    
    =-=-=-=-=
    =  Orcs =
    =-=-=-=-=
    
    The foot soldiers of Sauron's evil forces, Orcs can be found throughout Middle
    Earth. Although mutated from Elves, Orcs are corrupted forms that stand just
    over five feet tall. Taking their strength and determination for less than 
    full-size can be a deadly mistake, however, especially when multiple Orcs are
    involved in battle. Capable of melee attacks as well as ranged attacks with 
    bows, Orc have no obvious weakness. Taking them down may be a bit of a 
    challenge. I suggest using Fierce Attacks to knock them down, then a Kill 
    Move.
    
    =-=-=-=-=
    = Lurtz =
    =-=-=-=-=
    
    At Amon Hen, the Fellowship fights to protect Frodo from the Uruk-Hai. Lurtz,
    their leader, is bigger and more fierce than the rest of his army, and slaying
    him will prove no easy task. Check the Walkthrough for advice on beating this
    boss.
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    = Ringwraiths =
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    The nine Dark Riders were once great kings, hellisly corrupted to the point 
    of no return. They fell victim to Sauron when he gifted them rings of power,
    which slowly turned them to wraiths. They are now completely under the Dark
    Lord's control and he dispatches them throughout Middle-earth in attempts to
    recover The One Ring. They appear in hooded black robes, usually when the 
    Eye of Sauron is fully fixed upon the One Ring's wearer. You only have to 
    fight these guys once, in the second level of the game. Basically you have
    to light them on fire with a torch then attack with Fierce Attacks.
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    = Saruman the White =
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Once trusted friend and advisor to Gandolf, Saruman betrayed all once he 
    stood for to join the sinister cause of the Dark Lord Sauron. His powerful
    magic inspires fear in all those who oppose him, and his fortress in Isengard
    is home to a vast army of his own foul creation: the Uruk-Hai. One cannot
    hop to overpower Saruman, for merely surviving any confrontation with this 
    brilliant wizard is considered a true victory. Unfortunately, you do not
    fight Saruman in this game.
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=
    = Sauron -=
    =-=-=-=-=-=
    
    The Dark Lord himself has not been physically present on Middle-Earth for 
    some time. In fact, it was over 3,000 years ago that Isildur cut The One Ring
    from Sauron's hand, ending has last evil reign. Today however, Sauron grows
    more powerful with every passing minute. His vile armies are spreading 
    throughout Middle-Earth in an ever-expanding search for The One Ring. If he 
    gets it, Middle-Earth will be plunged into an age of unimaginable terror and
    violence, and Sauron will take physical form once again. Like Saruman you do
    not face off against the Dark Lord in this game :(.
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=
    = Uruk-Hai -=
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Saruman has succeeded in crossbreeding Men and Orcs. The result is an army of
    stronger, fast Orcs that do not weaken in sunlight. They are capable of melee
    attacks, ranged attacks with bows, and pike attacks. Genetic enhancement 
    makes the Uruk-Hai larger, stronger, and far more dangerous than their 
    standard Orc counterparts. Uruk-Hai are a pain to defeat, especially in Helms
    Deep. Basically you want to defeat them the same way as Orcs with Fierce 
    Attacks to knock them down, and Kill Moves to defeat them, but often they are
    too strong for that so it will basically take a shield breaker move then the
    Orc defeating combo or something like that.
    
    =-=-=-=-=
    = Wargs =
    =-=-=-=-=
    
    The great Wargs are a terrifying breed of huge wolf-like carnivores, driven 
    by a hunger for blood and predatory  intelligence. Saruman recruits Wargs, 
    and Orcs skilled in riding them, in his campaign to crush the nation of Rohan.
    Worked into a killing frenzy by the murderous Orcs, the Wargs fall upon the 
    ruined Rohan refugees as they flee their burning homes. These things are 
    pretty darn easy, a few fierce attacks and they're dead.
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    = The Watcher =
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    The mines of moria rarely sees visitors, and the Watcher is one of the main
    reasons why. This multi-tentacled behemoth waits patiently for prey just 
    outside the entrance to the mines, and very rarely does a man-sized meal 
    escape its writhing grasp. Consult the Walkthrough for advice on the Watcher
    battle.

    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    = The Slopes of Mount Doom -=
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Walkthrough:
    
    After a short movie the actual gameplay begins. You control Isildur in this
    level, who controls like Aragorn. This mission is very easy, you don't even
    really move much. Enemies come at you and at the top right the game tells you
    which button to press, easy huh? After you kill a few guys there will be a 
    short movie of Archers taking out orcs and the gameplay will come back on.
    Now you will need to do Fierce Attacks because the Orcs have shields, I don't
    suggest using speed attacks at all, because Fierce Attacks give you better
    ratings. Soon there will be another movie of Mount Doom erupting, no worries
    really, the Mountain will occasionally shoot out a fireball, but you are in
    no harm.
    
    If your sword starts to glow that means you have a perfect from attacking 
    enemies rapidly. Use speed attacks now because you will kill enemies in one
    hit no matter what, until your sword stops glowing. There will be one last
    movie of the dark lord killing a bunch of guys (and your father) then there
    will be a movie clip where Isildur slices off his the Dark Lord's hand 
    killing everything, Sauron has been defeated. After a little bit of 
    storyline there will be the mission ending screen. A bunch of numbers and 
    charts will come up telling your kills, and type of kills.
    
    Level Information:
    
    The Slopes of Mount Doom takes place 3000 years before all the other events in
    this game. The last alliance of men and elves charge to Mount Doom and 
    attempt to destroy the Dark Lord Sauron. Things are going well, until the Dark
    Lord appears that is. He takes out ten's of people at a time, until he kills
    Isildur's Father. Enraged Isildur picks up his father's sword and cuts off 
    Sauron's hand with the ring on it. Sauron and his army of orcs die, and this
    is the one chance to get rid of the evil forever. Men are weak though, Isildur
    keeps the ring and the legacy lives on.
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    = Weathertop -=
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Walkthrough:
    
    A short movie will play like the first level and all the levels to come and
    you'll gain control of Aragorn. In this mission it pits you against the nine
    Ring Wraiths, they aren't too hard though. Basically what you're doing is
    liting them on fire with your torch, if it goes out then head to the fire
    and light it by attacking there. Keep an eye on Frodo, if he dies you'll 
    fail the mission, he has a life bar on the top right. After you kill three
    they'll stab frodo (no worries), finish off the rest that attack (it should
    not be nine) and a movie will happen. It will explain the "Fellowship of
    the Ring". A new screen will pop up after the Mission Totals, buying stuff.
    You can buy attacks, and upgrades, buy a few if you want and have the exp
    then continue.
    
    Level Information:
    
    Frodo, Strider (Aragorn), Sam, Merry, and Pippin need a place to rest for the
    night, and high ontop of a small mountain they find Weathertop Fortress. Late
    in the night Merry and Pippin start a fire and the RIngwrathes see it -_-' so
    they come charging up. Armed with a torch and a sword Aragorn attempts to 
    fight off the Ringwrathes, but Frodo is stabbed and will die if not taken 
    care of. Frodo is taken to Rivendale where the Fellowship of the Ring is 
    formed.
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    = Gates of Moria -=
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Recommended Character: Aragorn or Legolas
    
    Walkthrough:
    
    Saruman has stopped you from going over the mountain so now you must go 
    under. Run down the side and you should notice orcs running down a hill, 
    when you reach them take them out with speed attacks and continue along the
    path. An explosion of a wall will occur, take out the appearing Orcs with
    some fierce attacks as you run along and more explosions occur. When you 
    reach the end you will go through a short movie of you saving Gimili. Take
    out the Archers firing at you with your bow and try to avoid the close range
    orcs (let Gimili handle them). As you come across archers firing at you 
    take them out with your bow, and handle close range orcs with speed attacks
    until you reach the swampy area.
    
    Once you reach the swamp be ready, Orcs will come out of the water. This is
    actually a pretty tough area. You will be surprised by Orcs coming out of 
    nowhere will ambushed by Archers. The best thing to do is to try to avoid
    the arrows by moving a lot, and take out the Orcs with Fierce Attacks for
    quicker kills. Make sure to walk over red potions you find on the ground,
    for if you don't then you might die from lack of HP. At the end of the swamp
    you'll face off against The Watcher.
    
                       -= Boss Battle: The Watcher =-
    
    The Watcher battle is awkward, but not hard if you know what you're doing.
    It will have everything but its tentacles under water, and the tentacles
    will attack you. Do Not, try to avoid them, or attack back, simply block 
    them with the B button and they'll be up in the air. Run up and slice the
    Tentacles, and the head will appear. Shoot the head with an arrow, and 
    repeat this process. Do this several times and the Watcher will fall, not
    too hard huh?
    
    Level Information:
    
    Saruman has created a storm preventing the Fellowship to travel across the
    mountain so they must find another way... to Moria. After traveling to the
    gates they are attacked by the Watcher a giant swamp, octopus type creature,
    after a short battle they are faced with the puzzling gate of moria saying 
    "speak friend and enter". Frodo asks what the elvish tongue of "friend" is, 
    Gandolf says what it is and the gate opens.
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    = Balin's Tomb -=
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Recommended Character: Legolas
    
    Walkthrough:
    
    When they arrive in Moria they find the Tomb of Balin. As they approach
    it they are also attacked by hundreds of Orcs. For the non boss portion
    of this mission you want to basically be blocking the Orcs. Find where
    they spawn ASAP then stand there. As they come attack with Fierce Attacks
    since some of them have shields. As you are probably experiencing this 
    mission is very easy. You'll take a lot of damage, but potions are also
    constantely spawning so it's easy! After awhile the Cave Troll will 
    attack...
    
                       -= Boss Battle: Cave Troll =-
    
    For the first and easier portion of the Battle you want to do a hit and
    run style. Run up to the side of him, do a Fierce Attack then run behind
    him, then around and repeat this. Doing this will minimize the damage to
    that of really small, and soon you will be at portion two of the battle.
    After you deal some damage to him there will be a movie and you will run
    up on a higher ledge. He will now attack with a chain. Hide behind pillars
    and shoot arrows from him. If he destroys the pillar run to another, there
    is plenty of pillars. If you run out of arrows there is a arrow fill up
    on the right side, and if you start to run low on HP goblins come every
    once and a while, when you kill them they will give you a potion. Because
    of your good long range (if you're Legolas) you should defeat him rather 
    quickly ^_^.
    
    Level Information:
    
    Near the end of the deserted Moria the Fellowship comes across the Tomb of 
    Balin. Before a heart-warming reunion can take place, the Fellowship is 
    attacked by goblin. Toward the end of the fight they are faced against a 
    giant Cave Troll, in which Legolas ends up killing. They leave the tomb soon
    and have to flee from a fire demon. On the bridge leaving Moria the demon 
    catches up to the rear, Gandolf. Gandolf breaks the bridge sending the demon
    flying down, but he also sends Gandolf down with him!

    After Frodo cries even more, and some more lame stuff the mission begins.
    You get to fight Uruk-Hai in the mission (what joy!). The beginning of the
    mission is You, and the others verse a bunch of Uruk-Hai. Take them out 
    with Fierce Attacks then run down into the forest. Now that you're in the
    forest look up at the Top Right of your TV. There will be the number of
    Uruk-Hai left, and Frodo's HP. Your main goal is to go through the level 
    killing all the Uruk-Hai before frodo dies. It's not really that hard. 
    There is plenty of potions that spawn, and only like five at a time attack
    you. If you ever are in deep trouble, like surrounded by tons of Uruk-Hai
    then start using A attacks. After you've killed all the Uruk-Hai and gone
    all the way through the forest you will face off against the leader...Lurtz
    
                         -= Boss Battle: Lurtz =-
    
    The first portion of the battle is a lot easier than it seems. Stay your
    distance away and shoot him several times with arrows until there is a cut
    scene where he picks up an axe type thing. Take out his little minions 
    now so it's just you verse him. Run behind a statue and make sure he gets
    his weapon stuck on it. Now attack him with fierce attacks until he breaks
    the statue, now go to a different statue and repeat. If you're good you 
    might get up a to a perfect and be able to kill him very quickly, if not it
    will be a slightly long battle of getting his weapon stuck in a statue and
    attacking, then running to another.

    Leaving an Elvish Village the Fellowship is attacked by Uruk-Hai in pursuit 
    of Frodo. The Uruk-Hai is attacked and widdled down by the Fellowship while
    Frodo and Sam escape to their own path. The Uruk-Hai end up picking up the
    wrong hobbits though, Merry and Pippin! As they are leaving the leader faces
    off against Borimor, and kills him to only be fought, and killed by Aragorn.
    Realizing that it's Frodo's journey the remaining Fellowship members (Aragorn
    Legolas, and Gimili) head in pursuit of Pippin/Merry.

    As the mission begins run through the forest until a tree is blocking your
    way. Hack it up and continue along until there is a huge tree blocking your
    way, and a group of enemies burst out. Defeat them with Fierce Attacks to 
    destroy their sheilds then Speed Attacks to finish them off and run through
    the inside of the tree. Break the log and run until you see a Troll. Charge
    him with Fierce Attacks until he is defeated, then break the fence and 
    continue on. After the cutscene attack the Uruk-Hai. There is a lot, but if
    you attack one at a time with fierce attacks it's not so hard. After you've
    defeated them run up into the river. Wade through the river, taking out 
    enemy Uruk-Hai when they appear until you reach a cave with another troll.
    
    Defeat the troll and exit the cave and make your way to the next troll fight
    killing enemies as you go. Once you reach this double troll fight destroy 
    the logs, then charge the left troll. After it's dead run right to a tomb
    like thing, and hack it up getting a potion. Now you're ready to kill the
    other one, do so then head forward to the end of the level. You will meet up
    with Gandolf again ^_^.

    The riders of rohan have killed all the Uruk-Hai when the Aragorn, Gimili, 
    and Legolas arrive. Upon further inspecton Aragorn finds that they were not 
    killed, but have fleed into the Fangorn Forest. Entering this Ancient Forest
    they search for the hobbits to no avail (who have been picked up by Ents!), 
    they do find Gandolf reborn though! Gandolf has came back as Gandolf the 
    White to help stop the Alliance of Evil (Sauron/Saruman). They now head to

    Once the gameplay beings quickly take out the Uruk-Hai and run into the town.
    Gandolf will take out a bunch of enemies, help take out the rest then Gandolf
    will break open a door for you, head through it. Look at the top right of the
    screen, this is the townspeople meter thing, if it runs out you'll lose the
    mission, run over to where there is a barrel and some fire, slash the barrel
    and the fire will be put out. Run up the stairs after the cutscene now, 
    destroy the tables and start attacking the Uruk-Hai. The townspeople will run
    away, destroy the Uruk-Hai and leave through the back of this house. As you
    emerge start running up, there will be some people running down because they
    are being chased by an Uruk-Hai, destroy it with a few fierce attacks and run
    on up to the top killing the Bow-Uruk-Hai-Men. 
    
    Continue on running down then up. There should be another hill going up, but
    there is some fire blocking it. Shoot a barrel behind the fire then destroy
    the tables and chairs letting the people out. Destroy the Uruk-Hai then run
    into the nearby house a guy on fire should be running out of. Run through the
    house then outside to a fight against more Uruk-Hai, but luckily Gandolf is 
    with you! After the battle is over complete the final house of the level and
    you win!
    
    Level Information:
    
    As the Fellowship and Gandolf move on they come across a town in Rohan. The
    town is swarming with attacking Uruk-Hai and people are desperately trying to
    flee, it is uncertain if this town will survive much longer, but the 
    Fellowship and Gandolf will slash through the Uruk-Hai.

    Walkthrough: 
    
    This is a very easy mission if you use the explosives to your advantage. What
    you want to do is to wait until the Uruk-Hai or Orcs are by an Explosive then
    shoot it killing them. There are plenty of explosives around so it's very 
    easy. The first area is really simple. As the Uruk-Hai come advance up and
    take them out with the explosives lying around. After you reach the river 
    you'll have to fight them without explosives until you reach a townlike area.
    Now there are KamiKaze's running through, they are huge Orcs with explosives
    attached to them. What you want to do now is to wait until they reach a large
    group of enemies and shoot them killing like 5-10 guys. After you've moved
    through the town there will be a cutscene of Uruk-Hai advancing.
    
    Once you reach the Uruk-Hai you should notice there are plenty of explosives.
    There is two ways to do this, the stupid way of making them all attacking you
    by trying to take out a few at once, or the smart way of blowing them all up
    by shooting the explosives really quick. Regardless after you've defeated 
    them go through the gate into another area. This hill that you're at is kind
    of tough, first of all you'll want to take out the guys, after a few seconds
    KamiKaze's will start attacking you though. My suggestion is to stay in the 
    back until the KamiKaze's start coming and shoot the KamiKaze's killing 
    everything. Once only KamiKaze's are coming at you start heading up the hill
    taking them out as you go. 
    
    At the top of the hill is another village, take care of this village like 
    you've done to previous ones and head over to the lake where a cutscene will
    appear. Wade through the lake the best that you can watching out for incoming
    KamiKaze's. When you reach the end shoot one of the explosive holders and the
    mission is over!

    This battle is like the level, incredibly easy. For the most part of the 
    battle you want to avoid the boss, so basically run around dodging and 
    blocking their attacks. When they send a Warg after you quickly slash it up
    with a few fierce attacks. The only time when you want to attack it is when 
    its legs are up in the air. After a few times of attacking it the boss should
    fall and the battle will be over.

    Nearing Helm's Deep the people of Rohan are attacked by a group of Wargs. The

    Walkthrough:
    
    Because this level is just defending the fortress on a small area I will only 
    give a basic strategy for the level instead of a walkthrough for it. The main 
    objective for this level is to keep out the enemies from the fortress until 
    the level is over. If the meter at the top right of your TV ever gets full 
    and stays there for awhile you will lose the mission. To prevent this from 
    happening you need to follow this strategy:
    
    Your main objective is to keep all the ladders down, for if there is no 
    ladders the enemies cannot come up. Because of this you want to run around 
    the area kicking ladders down with the X button, you won't really need to 
    attack enemies that much. The second thing to do is to find out where your
    allies are because that's where you will spend the lease time, only going 
    over there to knock down an occasional ladder because they do not knock them
    down for you. If you see that the meter is in the red or high yellow then I
    suggest going to the area where your allies aren't and helping taking down 
    the enemies that will probably be there.
    
    That is basically it for this mission, it is just protect the fortress. It is
    a fairly long mission and it isn't that hard if you follow that strategy, if
    you don't then the bar will probably overload and you'll lose. There are 
    three cutscenes in this mission, the first signifies that the mission is 1/4
    over, the second signifies that the mission is 3/4 over, and the last is the
    end of the mission.
    
    Level Information:
    
    Upon arriving Helm's Deep there is little time for celebration, for an army
    of 10,000 Uruk-Hai are advancing towards Helm's Deep. This mission is the 
    first part of Helm's Deep where they are attempting to stop the Uruk-Hai from
    entering the fortress. The end of the mission has a cutscene where a KamiKaze
    blows a hole through the fortress and part two begins.

    Recommended Character: Legolas
    
    Walkthrough:
    
    The first minute of so of the level is pretty darn easy, just stand back and
    shoot the KamiKaze's as they come. After a little bit orcs will start coming
    with them, try to destroy the orcs when you shoot the KamiKaze's or take them
    all out at once with a Charged Y Attack. Now that enemies start coming your
    basic strategy should be to take them out with a Charged Y Attack (where you
    hold down Y so your sword or axe turns a different color), or take them out 
    by shooting KamiKaze's.
    
    Right before the first cutscene several Uruk-Hai will attack you. Use quick
    attacks on them instead of the Holding Y trick because after the cutscene ten
    or so archers will come at you. If you kill the Uruk-Hai right you will get a
    perfect towards the end so you can blow through the archers with fast attacks
    :). Shortly after a second cutscene will appear, and a Cave Troll will come
    out. To be this guy I suggest charging up the Holding Y attack until your 
    controller rumbles and let it out on him ^_^. After you beat the Cave Troll
    there will be another cutscene where they are pulling the catapult out. This
    is the end of the level now and it's a race against the clock. Run up to the 
    catapult and do your best to take out all the enemies, once it looks like 
    there is none left go up to the side of the Catapult and start hacking away
    with Fierce Attacks. If the wall hasn't taken much damage you will win, if
    it's taken too much you'll lose, that's basically how it works... Remember to
    take out all three sides of the Catapult too, if you don't you'll never take
    out the full life bar.
    
    Level Information:
    
    The Uruk-Hai have broken through, and the villagers are fleeing into the 
    mountains, you must defend them by not letting the Uruk-Hai get through the 
    door! This is the second part of the Helm's Deep missions, and it's probably
    the hardest. It takes place in the middle of Helm's Deep right after the 
    KamiKaze blows through a wall, and the villagers are fleeing to the mountains
    so they don't die.

    The last level! Too bad it's pretty darn hard :(. Like in the last level you
    have to protect a door, and there is a boss battle at the end. Unlike the last
    level you aren't in a field like area though, it's much like the first level
    in that you are on an elevated zone area. Until the first cutscene it will be
    just enemies attacking the door, take them out with quick attacks (A) or 
    fierce attacks (Y). If they aren't paying attention to you, you might want to
    charge up Y so you take out like 5-10. After awhile there will be a cutscene,
    Legolas is in trouble. Run up to where Legolas is, and take out all the
    enemies, then run back down. 
    
    After a little bit a guy will yell out "Archers on the Wall". Run back up the
    stairs and take them out. Run back to the door after you killed the enemies 
    on the wall and remain there until there is one last cutscene where there is
    two Trolls coming. These guys aren't that tough, Charge up your Y attack and
    take them out when your controller starts to vibrate. After you take the 
    trolls out the game is over!

    Walkthrough:
    
    This is the secret level in the game so I will not provide anything but a 
    walkthrough for the level. The tower if filled up of twenty floors, each 
    progressing in difficulty. You can health only in some floors when you enter
    them. 
    
    Floor #1: Charge up your Y attack and release. It should kill or knock them
              all down. If it doesn't kill them, kill them with a killing move
              (R).
    Floor #2: Do the Y charge attack again to break the shields of the enemies 
              then take them out with speed attacks.
    Floor #3: Start off with a Y charge attack like before to hopefully kill 
              them. If it doesn't use bane combo's (B,A,R) to defeat them.
    Floor #4: Use a Y charge attack to break their shields and kill them with 
              bane combo's.
    Floor #5: Destroy their shields with a charged Y attack then use Bane Combo's
              like before.
    Floor #6: Finally some challenge. Be sure to zigzag up to the archers so they
              don't hit you and kill them with speed attacks.
    Floor #7: Kill the archers with speed attacks and then move to the others and
              kill them with fierce attacks.
    Floor #8: Zigzag up to the archers, kill them with speed attacks, and use 
              bane combo's on the Uruk-Hai.
    Floor #9: Take out the archers with speed attacks and then the non-archers 
              with bane combo's.
    Floor #10: This floor is quite annoying. Kill the archers first and then kill
               the Uruk-Hai's with bane combo's.
    Floor #11: Zigzag up to the archers at the side then take them out with speed
               attacks.
    Floor #12: Not too many archers here, so you probably won't get hit by them,
               take them out with fierce attacks and then kill the others.
    Floor #13: Zigzag up to the archers, kill them with speed attacks, and kill 
               the Uruk-Hai with bane combo's.
    Floor #14: Kill the archers with arrows then charge up Y and kill the others
               easily.
    Floor #15: Run up to the archers and kill them with speed attacks and kill 
               the troll by charging up Y.
    Floor #16: Kill the archers with speed attacks and use fierce attacks on the
               Uruk-Hai.
    Floor #17: Kill the archers with speed attacks and use fierce attacks on the
               Uruk-Hai.
    Floor #18: Take out the archers and the Uruk-Hai then charge up Y to kill the
               troll.
    Floor #19: Kill the orcs and archers as fast as you can then charge up Y and
               You'll take out the trolls.
    Floor #20: Whew! This is a psycho floor. Take out the archers and orcs first
               then charge up Y a few times to take out the trolls.

    The Watcher battle is awkward, but not hard if you know what you're doing.
    It will have everything, but it's tentacles under water, and the tentacles
    will attack you. Do Not, try to avoid them, or attack back, simply block 
    thrm with the B button and they'll be up in the air. Run up and slice the
    Tentacles, and the head will appear. Shoot the head with an arrow, and

    For the first and easier portion of the Battle you want to do a hit and

    him, then around and repeat this. Doing this will minimize the damage to
    that of really small, and soon you will be at portion two of the battle.
    After you deal some damage to him there will be a movie and you will run
    up on a higher ledge. He will now attack with a chain. Hide behind pillars
    and shoot arrows from him. If he destroys the pillar run to another, there
    is plenty of pillars. If you run out of arrows there is a arrow fill up
    on the right side, and if you start to run low on HP goblins come every
    once and a while, when you kill them they will give you a potion. Because
    of your good long range (if you're Legolas), you should defeat him rather

    his weapon stuck on it. Now attack him with fierce attacks until he breaks
    the statue, now go to a different statue and repeat. If you're good you 
    might get up a to a perfect and be able to kill him very quickly, if not it
    will be a slightly long battle of getting his weapon stuck in a statue and
