I. Introduction

Hello, my name is Jay Thomas and my GameFAQ's name is Clallzidus. This
is my first FAQ that I've written and I chose the game Lord of the
Rings: The Two Towers. Basically I'm going to try to finish this FAQ
as soon as I can so that I give you a complete guide for beating this
game. If you have any suggestions, comments, strategies, or anything
you want to tell me at all just e-mail me at

A. Story

The story was taken directly from the LORT:TT game manual and tells of
the prologue, the One Ring.

One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring
them all and in darkness bind them.

It began with the forging of the great rings. Three were given to the
elves- immortal, wisest, and fairest of all beings. Seven to the dwarf
lords- great miners and craftsmen of the mountain halls. And nine, nine
rings were gifted to the race of men, who, above all else, desire
power. For within these rings was bound the streght and will to govern
each race. But they were all of them decieved. For another ring was
made.In the land of Mordor, in the fires of Mount Doom, and the Dark
Lord Sauron forged, in secret, a master ring to control all others.
And into this ring he poured his cruelty, his malice, and his will to
dominate all life.

The One Ring an innocent-looking golden band, is by far the powerful
object in all of Middle-Earth. Put it on, and the wearer becomes
completely invisible. Using its powers of invisibilty draws the
attention of the Dark Lord Sauron, who may disperse sinister
creatures to retrieve The One Ring. The One Ring has a strange
corruptive influence, causing greed and powerlust in many who are
exposed to it. Possessing The One Ring can prolong the life of its
keeper, but corruption from The One Ring will eventually transform a
normal hobbit into a selfish, hideous monster. The One Ring was forged
thousands of years ago by Sauron in the fires of Mount Doom. He was
close to using The One Ring's full powers to dominate Middle-Earth
when it was cut from his hand in battle. Sauron has been trying to
reclaim The One Ring ever since losing it, and if he does, Middle
Earth will be plunged into darkness and sorrow. To prevent Sauron from
possessing The One Ring, it must be destroyed forever, and this can
be accomplished only by throwing it back into the fiery chasm of Mount
Doom. Frodo shows a remarkable resistance to The One Ring's evil
influence so he volunteers to carry it on the perilous journey to
Mount Doom.

II. Characters

These descriptions of the characters are taken right from the LORT:TT
game manual and show the three playable characters, Aragorn, Legolas,
and Gimli.

| Aragorn |

Men are weak,or at least this is the commonly held belief in Middle
earth. Three thousand years ago, Isildur, King of the Men of Gondor,
gained great renown when he cut the One Ring from the hand of Sauron,
ending his villainous reign. Soon after, however, he chose not to
destroy The One Ringwhen he had achance to cast it into the fires of
Mount Doom, and thus Men are known to be weak in character and not
entirely trustworthy.

Aragorn can change all of that. He is a ranger, a strong man skilled
in the use of many weapons including swords. Aragorn is trained to
survive in every situation. Many know him as Strider, but few are
aware of his true identity as son of Arathorn and heir to Isildur's
throne. He is the rightful King of Gondor, and a force to be reckoned

| Legolas |

Legolas is a noble Elven prince, deadly accurate with his Elven bow
and knowledgeable in wilderness lore. Because he is an elf, Legolas
has exceptional sight and hearing, and although he will never die of
old age, he can be hurt or killed in battle. Legolas is kind and
graceful, and he has a deep love for the peaceful side of nature. He
and his valuable bow attack are great assets to the Fellowship.

| Gimli |

Gimli is a stubborn dwarf who makes up for his lack of height and
grace with great strength, bravery, and tenacity. Gimli fears nothing
when he has his trusty axe in hand, and his temper makes him
formidable when angry. His gruff disposition keeps him from making
friends easily, but as a member of the Fellowship he is a tough and
loyal ally. Gimli especially dislikes elves, however during his
adventures with the Fellowship he develops an unlikely friendship
with Legolas. Gimli is very proud of his heritage, and looks forward
to seeing his cousin Balin in the Mines of Moria.

V. Walkthrough

Well now, I've finally gotten through all the facts and upgrades, now
let's actually get to the game. Keep in mind that there are some
spoilers in this walkthrough but I did not go into a detailed
description of the movies or cutscenes so that you can experience them
for yourselves. So don't e-mail me saying that I ruined the whole game
for you because I've warned you! just to say it again *SPOILERS* may
be in this walkthrough so beware because I'm not going to mark them in
the actual text. Now, onto the walkthrough.

Re: The Lord Of The Rings - Two Towers

Post by Elwa on 25th September 2009, 21:11

- Prologue

The game opens up with actual footage from the movie Lord of the Rings:
The Fellowship of the Ring. Enjoy this movie because it is the
beginning of a very fun video game. As soon as the movie ends you are
thrown into battle. The first battle you get to play as Isildur.

At the top right corner of the screen you are given commands on what
buttons to hit according to who and how your fighting the enemy. You
are given the Square command to defend when an enemy is attacking you,
the X button for a speed attack which is useful against shieldless
enemies. And then you are given the Triangle command to use a fierce
attack which is useful to knock down enemies or break their shields.
Every time you kill an enemy you receive a rank, either fair, good,
excellent, or perfect.

While your fighting watch out for the fireball that drops from the sky
near the lava river. Just use these key commands to kill as many
enemies as you can. Then you will see another movie and the mission is
over. It's nearly impossible to die in this battle but if you do don't
give up keep on trying.

After the fight you are given an overall rank for how successfully you
executed your attacks.

- Weathertop

A movie opens up this scenario, now you are controlling Aragorn a
ranger/man who uses a sword and bow. Keep in mind the basic moves that
you learned in the last mission. Your main objective is to protect
Frodo, the Ring-bearer, from the Ringwraiths who will stop at nothing
to find The One Ring.

When you finally gain control of Aragorn he holds a lit torch which is
the only thing that will hurt the Ringwraiths. The first Ringwraith
will be around you somewhere, use Triangle to light it on fire then
immediately after hit Square or R1 to block the Ringwraiths counter
attack. If your torch happens to go out then run next to the fire and
hit Triangle to relight your torch. NOTE- You can only hurt the
Ringwraiths with a lit torch. Line yourself back up and then hit
Triangle again and Square or R1 to parry the counterattack. (I prefer
using R1 for some reason, it is just easier to hit so from now on for
parry I will refer to it as R1) After repeating the Triangle then R 1
strategy it will finally die, then a few others come and attack you.
Relight your torch if needed and use the Triangle R1 procedure for
both of them until they die.

Then there is a cutscene where Frodo puts on the Ring and now is when
you actually have to protect Frodo. Never leave a Ringwraith alone
with Frodo, and if your torch goes out make sure you relight it very
quickly. After killing a few more there is a cutscene where Frodo gets
stabbed by a Ringwraith. Then you have to finally kill the last few and
the mission is done. There is a clip from the actual movie about the
forming of the fellowship and then you get your rank status, and you
can now upgrade your characters.

- Gates of Moria

Now you have the option of choosing any three of the characters
Aragorn, Legolas, or Gimli. It doesn't matter because you have a chance
to play as all of them after you've completed the level. Like the
previous two levels, it starts out with a movie and a cutscene. You
arrive in a snowy passage which is the beginning of the gates of Moria.
When you get control of your character you are accompanied by a member
of the fellowship (Here's how it goes... Aragorn--->Gimli ,
Legolas---->Gimli , Gimli-----> Aragorn)

Run down the hill and Gimli says "There are orcs. Many of them." and
you know what that means. Three orcs come down from above, and you can
easily dispatch of them by using speed attacks or you can do something
neat. Hit O when the orc is on the edge of the cliff and you should
knock him off the cliff. When you walk further down orcs bust through
the wall on your left, use speed attacks ( X ) or fierce attacks
( Triangle ) to get rid of them quickly.

There's a pretty cool cutscene of Aragorn/Legolas shooting an orc
that's about to kill Gimli. After there are three orc archers and once
you run down to get a closer view of them, orcs leap at you from above.
Kill them X or Triangle while being careful not to be shot by the
arrows. If you see arrows coming at you use R 1 to block them. Shoot
your bow by holding L1 down and then hitting X.

Once you kill all of them, run ahead for yet another cutscene. Now
there are three orcs on a stone platform farther away and above you but
don't worry about them just yet. One orc will run up and attack you
dismiss him by any of the methods you've learned (i.e. X, Triangle,
or O to kick him off the edge) Run forward and shoot and arrow to kill
at least one archer and then some orcs will climb a ladder to get to
you from the left side of the screen. A lot of them come so be ready.

Move on ahead and some burst through the wall ahead of you and before
you. Dismiss them and move along, where two archers shoot at you.
Dodge their arrows and then run up and kick them off the edge. A bunch
of other orcs come to help the archers. After they're all dead move
up and two will come down to fight you and two archers will stay
and shoot you from far away. Go past where the archers were and you
come to a swampy place.

Stay to the left so that you're not in the deep water and that is where
most of the orcs come from. As you walk up a few will jump out of the
water. As you go along there will be a few archers and more will come
from the water. Try to kill the orcs on land first then kill the ones
in the water because its easier to maneuver on land. Remember to parry
because a lot of arrows will be coming your way. As soon as you beat
all of them move go to the left and there should be a box. Hit
Triangle to smash it and you should get a potion. Run through the
opening on the right for your first boss.

BOSS- The Watcher
You will see a cutscene where your comrade will be knocked out and
unable to help you through this fight. When you get control, grab some
arrows on the left (if needed) then run into the water as far as you
can. Wait there and once you see the tentacles come out of the water
hit R1 repeatedly until you block all three tentacles. They will
start swaying back and forth that is when you hit Triangle and cut
one of them off. Then the Watcher will poke its head out of the water.
Shoot it with one arrow and it will go back under water and some of its
tentacles will come up. Sometimes only one comes up but another one
comes up, you have to block both, even if the Watcher's head is out of
the water its tentacles can still hit you. Repeat this process until
it's finally dead and you'll see a cutscene and then a movie clip.

-Balin's Tomb

There is a cutscene then they bring you into the level, which is a
small room where you get ambushed by a ton of orcs. Now you can perform
combos, refer to the Upgrades section of this guide to see what they
are and how much they cost. When you use enough combos your bar will
become glowing blue and all your kill's will be perfect rating.

When you gain control of your character be ready because a lot of orcs
come at you but there only two types. One- Shieldless orcs with
swords, fast and mobile. Two- Orcs with shields, slow but more
difficult to kill. The only ones you really have to watch out for are
the ones with shields because it takes a few hits to kill them. The
whole level is just you getting bombarded with orcs, but for the most
part it's rather easy. Mostly combos and Triangle will give you the
best results. Some combos will be stopped when you smack into the
shield of the second type of orc. After fighting for a long time there
will be a cutscene and then the big guy comes.

BOSS- Cave Troll
There are 2 parts of this fight but the first section is pretty easy.
When you start, the Cave Troll will slam his huge club onto the
ground making anybody (yes, even orcs) go flying. So be sure to get out
of the way of his first swing, run to the place where there are the
least enemies. The Cave Troll will follow you and once you stop he'll
most likely swing his club again dodge it and run close enough to it
and hit Triangle. Then quickly run out of reach of his club after you
hit it. Then after the club hits the ground run up and hit Triangle
again then quickly get out of his reach. Just repeat this process until
you take away enough health that you reach the second part.

Now this situation is much harder, especially if you still aren't very
used to the controls. This time the Cave Troll has a broken chain which
he uses to whip at you. You have to shoot arrows/axes and dodge the
chain at the same time. Also, every now and then a shieldless orc will
attack you, so be ready. If your quick enough shooting arrows/axes then
I suggest the following strategy. At the beginning of this second part
run left and there will be one shieldless orc waiting for you to kill
him. Once he's dead you now should start doing everything below.
There are (I think) 6 columns that you can hide behind. You may need
to practice a few times but you have to situate yourself so that when
the Cave Troll whips the chain it hits the column instead of you.
However, you also have to be able to shoot it with your arrows and you
have to be fast about it. After about 3 hits on each column the Cave
Troll will completely destroy it. He gets mad and strikes very quickly,
so when he destroys one, run behind another one and situate yourself
that you hit him but he doesn't hit you. Keep on doing this and
eventually he will die. NOTE- Whenever it breaks a column, it returns
and strikes very quickly, every now and then he takes a break where you
can fit in three or four good shots. Also, the orcs will only come from
the corner part of the area but I'm not sure how often they come.

*Alternate Strategy*
The Cave Trolls have 2 attacks (not including the lame logs he throws)-
Overhead smash with 2 hands and also a cheap swipe across with 1 hand.
You can see when they are about to use the 2 hand swing if you can time
it right use your Devastating Attack.
contributed by:

- Amon Hen

Movie/cutscene opens up this place too. After you see some sick moves
that Aragorn can do (which you can't do yet) there will be a big battle
with about 7 or 8 new enemies called Uruk-Hai. These are very powerful
breed of orcs that do a lot of destruction and are faster than just
normal orcs. You may notice on the top right corner of the screen, a
picture a Frodo with a health bar next to it and a picture of a Uruk-
Hai with a number (75 total) next to it. Well this means that you have
to kill that number of Uruk-Hai before Frodo's health bar goes empty.
For this first group of Uruk-Hai speed attacks and combos are the best
solution, sometimes the fierce attacks take too long and the Uruk-Hai
can stop it. After the enemies are defeated run up the stairs behind
you and smash the box on the right side for experience points.

Run back down and continue down the path when shortly you are
confronted by 2 Uruk-Hai and one archer. Watch out the archer may
throw a ball that explodes into a fire. When your finished with these
Uruk-Hai run down and you'll see 3 archers setting up at their posts.
If you run up, a bunch of Uruk-Hai jump out of the forest on both sides
and the archers start shooting. I always like a challenge so I run
up and kill a few then R1 and kill a few and one archer. Then when
all of the people are gone run under the bridge and even more attack
you. They come from a spot where you can't see them right when you get
out from under the bridge. Use your combos and now your fierce attacks
will come in handy (small groups use Triangle, big groups X is better).
After finished with this group run all the way to the left of the
bridge and run up onto it. Smash this box and you get some more
experience. NOTE- Before you go under the bridge there is a box semi-
hidden on the left side of the woods which gives you health.

Follow the path down and you'll see a small wall which can be used as
a shield. First, shoot the one on the left, and then you can either run
up or just shoot them from far away. When you run up more Uruk-Hai's
will come out of the forest and attack you. this is an awful big group
and there is also an unseen archer on the rock to your right. Remember
combos and speed attacks are best for big groups. Once you've wasted
these guys run down for a short clip where 3 archers throw fire bombs
which surrounds you. Just shoot all 3 of them and wait until the fire
dies down then run to the right.

Go down the stairs but don't go for the archer yet one Uruk-Hai jumps
out of the forest on your right. Get him first then get the archer. Be
prepared because another big fight is coming up, there are 2 archers
down the next set of stairs and about 10 Uruk-Hai that you have to kill.
Try to kill the archers first because they can be a real pain. After
these guys are all done run down the stairs to the left and help, your
other two comrades kill 2 Uruk-Hai's.

There is a cutscene of a battle and then you are put in the battle.
These shouldn't be too much of a problem because you've faced just as
large groups before. At this time, as long as Frodo's health isn't
completely gone you should have killed at least 75 Uruk-Hai. There
is a cutscene when you do, and after the scene you can run down to
the right and face the boss.

BOSS- Lurtz
This is like a combination of Uruk-Hai's and orcs or some different
stuff in attempt by Saruman to make the ultimate warrior. Like the last
boss this has 2 parts. The first is when this Uruk-Hai hybrid/cross
breed thing-a-majiggy uses his bow to try to kill you. Just avoid these
arrows by running right and left, he will shoot 3 then take a break, 3
then take a break. So dodge 3, then take out your own bow and start
hitting him. Eventually he'll take enough damage and throw down his bow
and pick up a sword. When he does this shoot him with a few arrows.
This won't hurt him, it will just give you time to position yourself
to stand next to a stone pillar. Also, an easy Uruk-Hai will come down
and help him which you might want to kill before you take on the boss.
When your one-on-one take start tapping R1 to block his attacks and if
you're standing next to the graves his sword will get stuck in there
for a few seconds and then this is your chance. Hit him with your best
combos if you get your sword to glow blue you can kill him with one
shot and receive a perfect rating for that kill. If not, he will
finally bust his sword out of the stone and attack you again. Tap R1
and use L2 to back away to another stone for him to get his sword
stuck in. Once it gets stuck, rip him up as much and as fast as you
can. Repeat this until he dies.

NOTE- Upgrade- After this fight I highly recommend getting Lvl 4
Rising Attack for the next level because it will definitely
come in handy.

- Fangorn Forest

Another movie introducing you to a different setting, more forest like.
If you run up to the second screen look into the background and you'll
see Treebeard who I first read about in the Two Towers book! He doesn't
do anything he's just sort of an added bonus to LOTR fans I guess. Run
ahead and you'll see a log across your path, hit Triangle to smash it.
Well once you see a fallen tree be ready because 3 shielded orcs come
out of it and 4 or 5 shieldless orcs jump behind you. I would say go
after the shieldless ones first but it doesn't really matter. Finish
them off and run down through the hollow fallen tree. When your about
halfway down a wicked tough orc will drop through the top. If you see
it coming quickly turn around and hit Triangle to knock him down then
hit R2 to kill him when he's down. If you don't see it coming and he
knocks you down, just hope you have Rising Attack purchased because
it will help you a lot in this level. If you did purchase it, let him
knock you down and then when you get up hit Triangle or X and you'll
knock him down, then use R2 to kill him. If you can't do either of the
first 2 strategies, run away from him and start shooting arrows at him.

Once you've killed him bust through the branch that's in your way and
run up ahead. There will be a cutscene where 2 orcs are thrown through
the woods by something out there. Run around the bend and a big cave
troll will attack you. The strategy that I use for this monster is to
run up and quickly hit him once with Triangle then right after you hit
him run out of reach of his club and then he will swing back at you.
Once his club hits the ground run up and hit Triangle once again then
back away wait for his club to hit the ground run up, Triangle, back
away, run up, Triangle, back away, and so on and so on... until the
troll finally dies. Once he's dead run up and smash through the fence
barrier and there will be a cutscene.

Those orcs in the cutscene are all yours now, I usually like to run up
and hit O to kick them into the whole and feed the anonymous beast down
there. Then just waste the others using various combos that you've
learned over the past few levels. They shouldn't be too hard. Once they
have been dismissed there is a box up at the right with a potion if you
need it. Once you go through the path up at the top of the screen, 3
orcs will attack you, 1 w/ a shield and 2 archers. It's fun to kick
the archers down the waterfall, and it gives you an excellent rating.

Go upstream and you'll have to wade through deep water, be careful
because orcs will attack you 2 at a time, when you pass a certain point
in the water. I usually get knocked down a lot in this level so Rising
Attack was an absolute must purchase before this level, it comes in
handy as I said before. After the fight you can see Treebeard again
if you look closely at the reflection of the water.

Run through the waterfall and into the cave a little bit for another
cave troll fight. Use the same method as the last time you fought one
(Run up, Triangle, run away, run up, Triangle, run away, etc...) This
time there's a little less room for you to fight though so be careful.
After he's finished go into that little room at the top of the screen
and smash the box for experience. Smash through both fences, and after
smashing through the second fence one of those tough orcs will fight
you from the right (The same kind that fought you in the fallen tree).
I would let him knock you down and then use Rising Attack on him to
kill him easily. Once your finished with him run up, and when the
screen changes perspective there will be an orc around the bend and
another one or two come up and attack you. There is also an archer
shooting at you from far away.

Continue along the given path and this is the perfect place to get
all of your perfect ranks. Once you run up shieldless orcs attack you 3
at a time, just use your combos to get your sword glowing and then kill
all of them getting a perfect rank. This battle is really easy because
none of them have shields so you'll cut right through them.

BOSS- 2 Cave Trolls
To actually get to them you can either take the path on the right where
you only have to bust through one fence or the path to the left, where
you have to bust through 2 logs while dodging sticks being thrown at
you. Yeah, I think I'll go right, if your having trouble getting through
for some reason (I did the first time I tried it lol) just go to the
left it's not all that bad. Well the strategy for cave trolls remain
the same as the other 2 you fought before in this level. But, you want
to make sure that you only take one on at a time. Use the run up,
triangle, run back, run up, triangle, run back theory for each of them
and you should be fine as long as you take them on one at a time. They
don't have any other attack other than throwing sticks and swinging
their clubs, and taking up space. If you need health, run all the way
to where the right entrance was and there is a box there with a potion.
After killing the first one, do the same to the second one. And when
your done there is a box to smash that will give you experience right
next to the exit. Smash through the fence and there will be another
cutscene which Treebeard is also in (when the show Legolas and Gimli)

- Plains of Rohan

In this level, you have to save this family of 2 before the Uruk-Hai
kill them. After a few scenes and a movie you have to fight 2 Uruk-Hai.
Once they are dead run through the gate and you can see Gandalf the
White in action. Run to the left top hand corner of the screen because
that's where all the commotion is. Quick combos work really well here
because these enemies don't have any shields to stop your attacks. The
only thing is that this breed of Uruk-Hai is a little quicker and
stronger so just be careful not to let your health drop too much in this
level. After everyone in this part of town is dead Gandalf will open the
door up with magic or he'll smash it open. Run inside then smash the
table and then smash the barrel of water on the side of the stairs. The
people will be free, wait a few seconds and a cutscene will occur. Then
a Uruk-Hai will come and attack you from the door, kill him then go
behind the bar, you have to smash some tables then go all the way to the
end and smash open the box for experience.

Run up the stairs now and break the tables to help those poor folks out,
kill the 2 Uruk-Hai's and watch out for the archer that goes into the
doorway. Get out of that house and there will be a tough looking orc but
he shouldn't be too difficult, sometimes he caught himself on fire and
died without me touching him. There are 2 archers on the roof one will
give you a potion after you kill it. Run down the roof and then look up
on the stone walkway on the left and shoot/throw an arrow/axe to break
the barrel of water to put out the fire. Then smash through the cart
blocking your path. Kill the Uruk-Hai that attack you. Then look to the
right, on the wooden outlay thingy, smash the barrels to put the fire
below out. Run back down the stone path then get the box which gives you
experience points.

Go back to the stone walkway and a guy runs out of a house on fire, I'm
not sure if you can put him out or not but I just leave him. Go into the
house and a Uruk-Hai comes up the stairs to fight you. Then go down the
stairs and one breaks through the door. When you go outside you get
ambushed by a ton of them, your rising attacks work really well when
they crowd around you. Use your biggest combos here, when they have all
died shoot the orc on the stairs. Go to the left and crush that blockade
and run up ahead. You'll see a cutscene where a Uruk-Hai entraps the
family into a burning building. This is a big battlefield and this is a
substitute for a boss fight.

There are so many Uruk-Hai's, I usually start out by killing a few with
arrows then running up and doing a combo to knock them on the ground
then use R2 to kill them all. I just keep running around and hitting the
first enemy I see. It all depends on how much life the family has, if
they are about to die then try to save them as quick as you can.
However, if they still have time left run to the left and smash the
barrel for experience. When most or all are dead then break the wood
thats blocking the entrance of the house and the mission will be over.

- The West Fold

This level is very very dangerous because the Uruk-Hai start using
explosives. Some of them have them strapped to their backs, but you can
easily stop them by shooting an arrow when they are far enough away. You
aren't introduced to these type of folk until later in this level. The
first thing you want to do is to shoot the carts of explosives and
everyone else around it will die too. Kill everyone else thats there
(enemies of course) then continue along the path. There are a lot of
Uruk-Hai rushing at you, and you have 2 options. 1- Run towards them and
take them out with your sword and avoid hitting the cart of explosives.
2- Just wait until they are even with the cart and then shoot the cart
to make them all explode. The first one gets you more experience points
but the second option is cooler looking. It doesn't matter which one you
choose just as long as they all are dead. Then after the big group there
are a few enemies blocking your path, one is an archer, there is also a
cart next to the archer that you can shoot.

Start walking over that small stream and then the Uruk-Hai with bombs on
there back come in. There are 3 of them, just stay away from them, DO
then shoot them and they will blow up. Run down that small hill and
there will be different types of Uruk-Hai that will attack you when you
get down there so be ready. After you get down there watch out for the
Uruk-Hai with explosives because they will sneak up on you and blow up
right in your face, they will start coming at you after you start
fighting at the bottom of that hill. Shoot the carts with explosives,

Run through the gate and you'll see a cutscene. There will be an enemy
in front of you after the cutscene. Shoot the carts that are in front of
you just be far enough away from the explosion. Run down and kill the
people that are remaining. Go through the gates and shoot the carts and
a lot of Uruk-Hai with explosives are going to attack you. They pause
for one second on top of that hill, and that is when you want to shoot
them because it will have a chain reaction that will blow up a few
others behind him too. At that time run up and over the hill and join
the Rohan warriors and kill all of the Uruk-Hai. Shoot the carts and
small bombs before you hit them with your sword.

Break through the cart and there will be a cutscene. Shoot the carts
directly in front of you. There will be Uruk-Hai's with explosives
coming from the left that go through the water. Shoot them before they
reach you, when you go into the water many orcs will pop up and try to
kill you before getting to the other side. You just have to kill them
but watch out for the exploding Uruk-Hai. Once they are all dead run
across to the other side, kill the archers and orcs and then shoot one
cart to finish off the level.

- Gap of Rohan

Watch the movie and cutscene and you'll see the wolves/Wargs. I like to
call them Wargs and I am almost positive that they are supposed to be
goblins on Wargs instead of orcs on wolves but either way I'll just
refer to them as wolves. You have to fight 3 of them in the begginning,
they aren't too hard just yet so when one charges at you, just run to
the right/left when they charge at you until they stop, then run up to
them and hit Triangle or combos a few times to kill one. Do the same for
the other 2. After the fight run around the place and smash the barrels
for experience points. When your done run to the fiery house and smash
through it for the boss fight.

BOSS- "The Wolves of Isengard"
There will be a cutscene where the dude, on what I thought was a Warg,
will yell something to do with "the wolves of Isengard." So there you
are, put in a circle and 2 wolves are facing you. Remember the strategy
from the previous ones. Run to the right/left until they stop, then just
unleash on them. After you kill these 2, more come but they are archers
so be careful of their arrows but basically use the same strategy, you
can also run then shoot arrows, run shoot arrows. Once these are dead,
be ready for the head honcho, the whole enchalada(sp? lol). Well you
cant use the same strategy as the less important wolves so you have to
find his weakness. He does a simple routine which I think remains the
same throughout the fight but I could be wrong. He basically does
this... Runs over you to start off the fight, then tries to run over you
twice, gets up on hind legs, runs over you twice, gets up on hind legs,
and so on and so forth. That is what I have dealt with but I haven't had
a really long battle with him yet. The only time you can hurt him is
when he is on his hind legs so that is when you pull out everything and
hit him as many times as you can before he comes down again. Whenever he
tries to run over you keep tapping R1 to parry and he will knock you
over without taking any health. Watch out after he gets up on his hind
legs a few times a less powerful wolf will come and distract your
attention, just use the basic wolve strategy (run right/left, attack).
Keep on parrying then attacking when its up on its hind legs and you win
after a while.

Re: The Lord Of The Rings - Two Towers

Post by Elwa on 25th September 2009, 21:12

- Helm's Deep: The Deeping Wall

Movie and cutscene and you need these because these next 3 missions are
incredibly difficult. Now let me explain how this level works. There are
3 basic sections, Right, Middle, and Left as I like to call them. The
orcs put up at most 3 ladders in the Right section, 3 in the Middle, and
2 in the Left. Obviously the Left section is your least priority. This
mission, all I focus on is knocking down the ladders, killing orcs/Uruk-
Hai are second in my mind for this reason, if they don't have ladders up
they can't come onto the wall. Use O to knock down the ladders. This
level was easiest (for me) with Legolas and hardest with Gimli. It is
helpful to look up at the top right of the screen to see the red dots
(which represent the ladders) to see where you have to go.

Remember, ladders are your main target, killing enemies is just a bonus.
You start in the Right section, knock down the ladder in front of you
then run to the left section and knock down those ladders. By the time
your done with that the middle section should have some ladders up, if
not wait in the middle section and kill any orcs that confront you. It
is always helpful to know which ladders just got put up, because the
ones that have been up for a little while, tend to have more enemies on
it. So go for the old ones first then the new ones.

From here on in it's pretty much up to you because there is no definite
order that the ladders go up, eventually you will get a cutscene and the
orcs have mustered up some archers. When you see the arrows in the sky
either don't even pay attention to them (only if there are a ton of
ladders up) or run all the way to the back and you shouldn't be hit
(only if there are barely any ladders up). Just keep on kicking and if
one area gets too crowded quickly take care of some orcs but never
wander in one area too long.

After kicking and fighting for a while another cutscene will come up,
this is where they start flinging huge rocks that are on fire. You might
not want to be hit by these because they take a large chunk out of your
health. So try to avoid these if possible, and keep on kicking and
referring to the top right corner of the screen to see where you should
go next. After a while, another cutscene will come and you'll finally
have beaten the level. Easier said than done eh? Don't worry if you die,
just try and try again. It seemed like I died a million more times in
the last 3 Helm's Deep levels than I did the whole game. Just stick with
it, you'll find yourself relieved after you beat it.

- Helm's Deep: Breached Wall

Yet another extremely tough level and again the mosters just never stop
coming. Enjoy this movie and cutscene whilst it lasts. For this level
you are trying to defend this door so that it doesn't break and ipen up
for the enemy to get through. For this level, never let those Uruk-Hai
with explosives on their backs get even close to the door. And whenever
people get by you, kill them as quick as you can.

Alright then, lets begin. You start off with a ton of those exploding
Uruk-Hai's coming at you, just shoot arrows/axes at them and they'll
blow up. You may want to let one or two come close enough so that you
can replenish your arrows/axes. Never let them come too close though.
They will attack you with a ton of waves of these monsters so beware.
After a while, different orcs come run up a bit and ry to take out as
many as you can. A few may try to fight you but the majority of those
alive will go for the door. Run back and kill them off but watch out for
the exploding Uruk-Hai because they just keep coming. Even more waves
come, you may want to hold triangle and use your Fury attacks because
these usually do major damage and you have plenty of time to get ready
for them. Combos work well when you are facing shieldless enemies but
the Fury attacks work best with the shielded ones. Each wave just keeps
on getting tougher and tougher.

Some archers will come up and one of those tough orcs that you first
encountered in Fangorn Forest. Take out as many archers as possible then
take on the tough guy. Just use the same strategy (knock him down then
R2 or let him knock you down, Rising attack R2). Then there will be a
cutscene in which the enemies are rolling up a catapult just outside of
the gate and they start to propel huge flaming rocks at the area you are
in. After the cutscene, a cave troll will come up and those exploding
Uruk-Hai keep on coming so be very careful, if the exploders get too
close shoot them, use that same strategy as the last cave trolls you
have fought (Hit it, run/L2 away, hit it, run/L2 away and so on.) When
he's dead there will be another cutscene.

Now the catapult is actually inside the gate and hurling stones at the
gate. An orc will run at you, R1 to block him then knock him down and
kill him, or just combo him. Now run up and all the orcs with shields
will attack you, the Fury attack will help you a lot. Once these are all
dead take out all the archers on the left, then run to the left side of
the catapult. Kill the guy guarding that side then demolish that wooden
barrier on the side of it, with your fastest and strongest attacks. Then
when you broke this kill the rest of the archers (unless the gate is
almost about to break) then kill the guys guarding the last 2 parts of
the catapult. I found a way to situate my self in between both pieces of
wood and hit them both at once. If you can't do that don't take up too
much time trying. Just crush them individually and the catapult will
break apart and you will be done this level.

- Helm's Deep: Hornburg Courtyard

Now this is the last mission that you have to play and in my opinion is
the toughest. You have to protect another gate and you get hailed with
even more orcs and Uruk-Hai and whatnot. After a movie and a short
cutscene you'll be thrown right into battle. Now, the only thing I
worried about is the people actually attacking the door. A bunch of orcs
will be around the door but usually only a few of them are attacking it.
Key on these people and kill them, of course you would want to kill a
few here and there on your way but watch out if you get tangled up you
might let the door get hit too much. So when you have a chance use your
combos, however there are a lot of enemies with shields in this level so
a lot of them won't work. Don't take the time to kill individual
enemies, use the combos that have more of a chance of killing/knocking
down a few enemies. Your Fury attacks (hold triangle) work very well
when there is a big group of enemies and no one is attacking the wall.

After fighting at the door for a while the character that your not
playing as (either Legolas or Aragorn) will ask for your help. At that
time run to the stairs and go all the way down, don't even touch an orc,
try to get there as fast as possible then kill those enemies as fast as
possible. When they're dead run back down to the door, be careful once
you get to the middle part of the wall watch out for the fireball that
hits that section. There will be a cutscene before you even reach the
stairs. (NOTE- whenever I did this I held down the left analog stick to
the right, the way I was running, before the sequence was done and when
I got control again my character was running left. I just wanted to
point out that this may be a glitch in my game I don't know but it takes
away from a few seconds, more if you get into a fight so be careful.)

Go help your partner at the gate again and keep with the keying on an
enemy that is actually attacking the door. This way you won't give up
too much damage. This part you have to listen carefully because there is
no cutscene but Gimli/maybe Aragorn yells "Archers on the wall." At this
time run as fast as you can up the stairs and shoot the archers, they
are all the way down to the left to get them all, I believe there are
about 6 or 7. Try not to get into a fight with any enemy on this, your
main priorit is to kill the archers and to get down to the door as fast
as possible.

After these archers are dead get back down to the door and key on those
attacking the door, and combo whenever there aren't any enemies with
shields around. Be careful, it seems as if the tougher enemies come in
this part of the battle. After what seems to be a very long time, 2 cave
trolls will come. Now forget everything I told you about protecting the
door and attack these cave trolls with all your might. Make sure to
attack the one that is actually hitting the door because they do A LOT
of damage to it. I didn't even bother with the old strategy (run up hit
it, run away/L2 etc...) This time I just went all out and even if they
knocked me down I kept on attacking it, because if you die here you have
to start it all over. After you kill these two all I have to say to you
is congratulations because you beat the game. Watch the cutscene then
the cool movies and enjoy. Now you can access the secret level, the
Tower of Orthanc with the secret character Isildur.

VI. Secrets

Well this last section is just a guide on the Secre level the Tower of
Orthanc which is available once you complete the game. I am only putting
one strategy because I used the same strategy for all the characters. I
hope this helps.

- Tower of Orthanc

There is a short cutscene and then you are engulfed in a circular arena
in which you will face different monsters for 20 levels. Sounds like fun
eh? The basic setup will be the floor level, the enemies, and a simple
but effective strategy.

Floor 1- 5 Shield less Uruk-Hai - This is simple, just use some big
combos and deal with them like you dealt with them throughout the game.

Floor 2- 3 Uruk-Hai with shields, 2 shield less Uruk-Hai - Break the
shields first using a fierce/devastating attack, then just use combos or
whatever proves the most effective.

Floor 3- 4 Dual Knived Uruk-Hai, 2 shield less Uruk-Hai - Just use
combos galore here, there are none with shields to parry you so just use
the most powerful combos you have.

Floor 4- 3 Uruk-Hai with shields, 3 shield less - This is like Floor 2
but one more Uruk-Hai, so just break the shields first then use combos.

Floor 5- 3 Uruk-Hai with shields, 3 Dual Knived Uruk-Hai - Attack the
Dual Knived Uruk-Hai first then go after the ones with shields.

Cutscene- Now you have to worry about archers so watch out.

Floor 6- 8 Archers - Run around avoiding the arrows, then stop every now
and then and shoot arrows at them then parry the ones coming at you and
shoot some more.

Floor 7- 4 Archers, 2 Dual Knived Uruk-Hai, 2 shield less Uruk-Hai -
Shoot as many archers as you can first then kill the Dual Knived ones
next, kill the rest of the archers then kill the rest of the Uruk-Hai.

Floor 8- 3 Archers, 4 Uruk-Hai with shields - Kill the archers first,
then break the shields of the rest and kill them with combos.

Floor 9- 4 Archers, 2 Dual Knived Uruk-Hai, 2 Uruk-Hai with shields -
Kill the archers then the dual knived Uruk-Hai, then the ones with

Floor 10- 2 Archers, 5 Uruk-Hai - Watch out the archers throw bombs at
you, combo to kill a big group of Uruk-Hai then kill the archers then
kill the rest.

Floor 11- 8 Archers - 2 Archers run up closer to you, just keep shooting
and running then every now and then use your parry to block then shoot.
Run in a circular pattern but never straight at an archer.

Floor 12- 2 Archers, 4 Dual Knived Uruk-Hai, 2 Uruk-Hai - Kill the Dual
knives then kill the archers then attack the Uruk-Hai.

Floor 13- 4 Archers, 4 Uruk-Hai - Kill the 2 Archers first then combo
the Uruk-Hai, and then kill the other 2 Archers.

Floor 14- 2 Archers, 2 Uruk-Hai with shields, 4 Uruk-Hai - First attack
the archers then break the shield and the rest just combos will do.

Floor 15- 4 Archers, Cave Troll- Run away from the cave troll then shoot
the archers once you killed the archers just use regular cave troll
tactics, Triangle,L2,Triangle,L2, etc...

Floor 16- 2 Archers, 2 Powerful Uruk-Hai - Kill the 2 archers then use
your rising attack on the powerful ones or run away and shoot arrows at

Floor 17- 4 Archers, 2 Powerful Uruk-Hai, 2 Uruk-Hai - Kill the 4
archers then go after the 2 regular Uruk-Hai then use your rising attack
on the powerful ones or run away and shoot arrows at them.

Floor 18- 4 Archers, Cave Troll, Powerful Uruk-Hai - Run around shoot
all archers and the powerful Uruk-Hai then take on cave troll using
previous methods.

Floor 19- 2 Archers, 2 Cave Troll, 2 Dual Knived Uruk-Hai - Run and
shoot archers, then take of the dual knived Uruk-Hai then take one cave
troll at a time.

Floor 20- 3 Archers, 2 Uruk-Hai with shields, 3 Cave Trolls - Run and
shoot the archers, break the shields of the 2 Uruk-Hai then run and
shoot them also, then run and draw one cave troll away from the others
and take them on one at a time.

Enjoy the cutscene and happy trails you've just completed the secret
