Easy Gollum/Smeagol Defeat
Instead of using your sword, push him around with your physical attack. He'll roll back with ease. Don't use it while he's almost standing up straight laughing because nothing affects him this way. Also, don't use it when he's close to the ledge because he'll roll away from the ledge. Instead speed attack him so he begins to lose balance. Then do your obvious fierce or physical attack to knock him off the ledge so he grabs on and do your killing move so he loses health and jumps back on. Repeat and he should go down a little easier this way.

Easy parry
Instead of actually using the parry move, just repeatedly uses your speed attack. This way, you will probably block most attacks as well as hitting the enemies.

easy spider kills with Sam
just his them with a fierce attack(Triangle) then it knocks them over, which lets you stab them.

Free Level Up
Choose any level you want,pause the game and enter the 3-hit combo for the character you are, like for Legolas it is L1,L2,R1,R2 triangle (3) down. then let go of the L's and R's then press L1,L2,R1,R2 again and enter X,0,triangle,square (the 4-hit combo) This will give you a free level upgrade. (Remeber the cheat given is for legolas you will have to find out the 3 and 4-hit combos of the character you are.)

get lots of exp. w/ out cheating
be someone that you want to level up and play "the southern gate" level. the one in osgilath. kill the troll that attacks you right away w/ a spear. then go set off all the catapults to get them out of the way. now you can kill as many orcs as you want because they keep coming. (actually after you kill about 230 they will stop.) if you are running low on health run and complete the mission except for leaving. when you come back down you can keep takin dow all the orcs until they stop coming and u can always leave if u are about to die.

heres a glitch with mount doom.
be any1 BUT frodo. At the very beginning when he is supposed to jump on frodo and bite his finger off, he bites nothing but the air. And here is a easy wey to beat mount doom. Go to the edge (of the land). Then patrol it,going back and forth. When smeagol does his jump kick that is impossable to perry move and then hit him. Then attack him wit speed. stab his fingers wit killin move. Repeat till sadisfied

how to defeat enemies easier
if you're constantly surrounded in levels like the Southern Gate or the Palantirs or any other levels, keep tapping X to do speed attacks. Also, try to do combos that start with speed attacks like Orc Hewer, Balrog's Gambit, Final Judgement, etc. when they attack you and you're doing speed attacks it blocks their attacks but slows you down a little. Also, if you have enough time, hold down TRIANGLE and release it to do your devastating attack. This is very helpful throughout the game. You will then unlock better and more powerful combos like Swift Justice, Lightning Strike, etc.

Path of the damned,The King of the dead
When you play this level you have to figure out how many swings at a time he takes and when he takes them.The way I did it was parry 123 speed attack parry 123 etc.At times he will disappear and appear again but you can't attack him

King of the Dead
To kill the king of the dead easy just get a friend, play in co'op. Player 1 be Legolas and player 2 be Aragorn. The king of the dead will attack Aragorn so after you have defeated the paths of the dead buy those fire arrows with your money, they will do a lot of damage on the king of the dead.

Also, about halfway through that level, when the king does that wind power and you have to hide behind that rock, every time after he does that quickly shoot him with fire arrows and be carefull, hide behind the rock because he does that power twice more.

Leveling up (and its not cheating)
Play the Minas Tirith:Wall level. When the siege tower lands on the left wall, go to it and don't knock down the 2 ladders on the wall. When you destroy the tower, don't go down to the gate to end the level. Stay on that wall and wait for orcs to climb the ladders (or "ladder" if they go up only the right ladder). This requires patience cause the orcs come up one by one. You can go up to any level cause they won't stop climbing (and be careful not to knock down those ladders).
