===Introduction===
====The [[Shire]]====  
+
===The Shire===
The first act deals with [[Frodo Baggins|Frodo]]'s journey to [[Bree]]. It begins peacefully in the Shire as Frodo has to make the final arrangements for his departure. Although there are many optional quests involving the inhabitants of [[Bywater]] and [[Hobbiton]], the main story focuses on the selling of [[Bag End]]. Once this is complete and the [[One Ring|Ring]] is retrieved Frodo must escape the Shire undetected by [[Black Riders]] to meet with his companions and [[Maggot]]'s Farm.

Though the quest log tells the player this knife is necessary to defeat the Barrow-wight that serves as a [[wikipedia:Boss (video games)|boss]], throwing many rocks at him from the safety of an elevated part does the trick too. After "defeating" the wight, Frodo decides to sing a song tought to him by Tom Bomdail, who emerges and sings the wight away. He gives them more daggers, and tells them to stay the night at ''[[The Prancing Pony]]''.

====The [[Trollshaws]]====
+
{{references}}
Aragorn must clear the area of enemies including orcs, wargs and about 5 Trolls. Once all enemies are defeated [[Glorfindel]] takes the company to [[Rivendell]]. In other versions the enemies are mainly goblins(including the xbox version).
+
 
+
===Act Three- [[Moria]]===
+
Act three begins with [[Gandalf]] as the playable character as he searches for the doors of Moria. As he attempts to open them, play switches to Aragorn as he fends off the [[Watcher in the Water]] before returning to Gandalf on entering Moria. in the other system versions you must defeat the watcher in the water with Gandalf. With [[Gimli]] the [[dwarf]] as a companion, Gandalf must navigate the dark maze of the [[Dwarrowdelf]] fighting off the orcs and trolls that stalk its shadows. in other versions you do not fight all enemies like trolls and so not have Gimli as a conpanion at all. The game becomes more objective based when the Fellowship reaches [[Balin's Tomb]] from which Gandalf must find an escape route as the other characters fend off the trolls, using slabs of stone which redirect the light onto the huge keyhole, and the only thing to open the humungous door is the light, this is a real puzzerler. Play then switches to Frodo in the 21st hall, retaining Gimli (no gimli in other versions) as a companion, who must find a way through the various ladders, walkways and bridges to reach and open the gates on the other side. The act reaches its conclusion on the [[Bridge of Khazad-dûm]] where Gandalf duels with the Moria boss, the one and only Balrog.
+
 
+
===Act Four- [[Amon Hen]]===
+
Act Four sees Aragorn resume the role of playable character after a brief interlude in [[Lothlórien]]. First there is a short level in which he spies out an orc-dam on the river [[Anduin]] in which the game introduces its final minor enemy, the [[Uruk-hai]]. Play then moves onto the final level of the game at Amon Hen in which Aragorn battles his way through most of the previously-encountered enemies to the Seeing Seat. The very summit has to be reached twice, first as Frodo who must get to the top of a stone hill while other members of the fellowship are dueling orcs. Aragorn battles the game's final boss, the [[Fell Beasts|Fell Beast]] using only his bow and arrow at the top of the hill. The game ends in a cut-scene where [[Legolas of Mirkwood|Legolas]] shoots the winged beast with an arrow.
+
 
+
A final cut-scene shows [[Galadriel]] over her [[Mirror of Galadriel|mirror]], where she recounts the future of Sam and Frodo. It features two pieces of artwork from [[Alan Lee]], one showing [[Gollum]] and the other Frodo and Sam.

The Barrow-downs

Frodo's companions are again lost and Frodo has to find them in the fog of the wight-haunted downs. In the final barrow Frodo finds his new weapon, one of the Daggers of Westernesse. Though the quest log tells the player this knife is necessary to defeat the Barrow-wight that serves as a boss, throwing many rocks at him from the safety of an elevated part does the trick too. After "defeating" the wight, Frodo decides to sing a song tought to him by Tom Bomdail, who emerges and sings the wight away. He gives them more daggers, and tells them to stay the night at The Prancing Pony.

Bree

Aragorn escorts Frodo and Sam to the summit of Weathertop. On the way Wargs and Orcs are first introduced into the game.
