The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring is the title for a set of similar 2002 video games published by Vivendi Universal, produced for four platforms by three developers. Though its title is similar to that of Peter Jackson's movie, it is based on the book rather than the movie.
The Old Forest
- Forest Labyrinth
- Withywindle Path
Frodo finds Merry and Pippin taken by Old Man Willow. After Tom Bombadil arrives on the scene to rescue them, he asks Frodo to help him gather lilies for Goldberry. Along the way, more spiders emerge. As a reward, he takes the Hobbits to his house, where they can recuperate.
- 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.
- Town of Bree
It is apparent that Merry is missing and gameplay switches to Aragorn. Having found Merry he then hunts for objects to construct Hobbit decoys to fool the Nazgûl who are still on their trail, battling wolves and ruffians along the way.
- Weathertop Hill
Aragorn escorts Frodo and Sam to the summit of Weathertop. On the way Wargs and Orcs are first introduced into the game. At the summit of the hill, Aragorn discovers signs of a struggle, and he is attacked by a troll. After defeating the troll, Frodo notices Black Riders on the Great East Road, and they head back to the encampment.
- A Knife in the Dark
In a cut-scene, Frodo is stabbed by the Witch-king, and Aragorn must prevent the Nazgûl from stabbing Frodo even more, fighting them off with a fire-brand.
- Troll Shaws
Aragorn must clear the area of enemies including orcs, wargs and several trolls. Once all enemies are defeated Glorfindel appears; he sends Frodo away on Asfaloth. After his stance at the Ford of Bruinen, Frodo collapses.
- House of Elrond
- Hollin Ridge
- 3 Passages
- 2nd Hall
Frodo and Gimli have to fight themselves through the Second Hall. The player controls Frodo, who has to pull several levers to connect bridges and open the main door. Though most of the fighting can be left to Gimli, some foes - several archers, some orcs - are outside his reach, and have to be avoided or killed by Frodo.
- Abyss Fight
Gandalf fights the Balrog. The Balrog can only be stunned by the spell of lightning, after which Gandalf has to hit him with Glamdring. One hit from the Balrog's sword, however, is lethal.
- Lothlórien Forest
- Orc Dam
After leaving Lothlórien, the Fellowship finds the river Anduin blocked by a dam. They seek the shore, and Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli and Boromir have to clear it before they can portage the boats. They have to beat two trolls, several archer orcs, and Uruk-Hai, who are first seen in this level.
- Amon Hen
- Final Cut Scene
A sequel was planned for this game, and was to be titled The Lord of the Rings: The Treason of Isengard. The game was in development, but was cancelled before its release.
