Lord of the Rings Return of the King Walkthrough
The Path of the Wizard - Minas Tirith - Top of the Wall
This is the mission I *hated* from the last game - run run run kick. You run back and forth on the wall looking at the map in the top right corner and kicking off ladders. Note for some reason I get ALL sorts of email from people asking how to do this! When you move up in front of a ladder a little prompt should appear on the screen saying exactly what button to press. I think it was the black button on the PS2. But you shouldn't have to guess - when you're standing in front of the ladder (as if you were about to climb down it) a prompt should pop up telling you to hit (whatever key) to kick it off.
Focus on the ladders first, the nearby orcs next. Having a "spotter" calling out ladder locations really helps out. It might take you a try or two to figure out how the map is laid out, but once you do it's not too bad.
Soon the siege towers start rolling in. So not only do you have to watch for red dots (ladders) but also for blinking red dots (siege towers coming in). It takes 14 missile shots to take down a siege tower so keep your ammo levels high. The first tower comes in the far left, the second on the far right. A third comes on the left again. A fourth ... you guessed it ... on the far right.
When that one goes down, they bring forth the giant lizard-ram. Thank goodness, that red-dotted map is gone now.
OK go down the stairs now and everybody follows you. You run to hold the door shut but of course the doors burst open. End of mission!!
30900 - excellent!
