Battlefront allows you to occupy any "vehicle", while campaign will follow a certain path, they allow a fair bit of variety within the game. The soldier using the Ballista is due to that soldier having killed the enemy and using their weapons against them.

Game looks awesome, cannot wait

Well...then what is a ballista doing at Minas Tirith?
EDIT: Inside Minas Tirith?

Who knows. I won't complain, as long as gameplay is good.

1) It's not large enough to be Isen's Ballista.
2) Because it's so small, it wouldn't be that hard for enemies to bring it in.
3) Maybe it's some extra security for the gondorians

Probably just a gameplay choice though :)

Maybe it's there because the game is still in development, no?

Aye, there's that too. Although that could possible go under gameplay choice, but temporary :)

Maybe it's non-linear, and you do whatever you want to...

Not sure if any of you have seen this, but here is the high-definition trailer. I don't think that the actual content that they picked and produced to be used in this trailer was appropiate nor worked well, but here you go:

After pausing 50 times to atcually look at what's going on in the trailer, I think you fight at Weathertop with mumakil, have a balrog that's only about twice the height of a man, catapults and lots of wildmen at Helm's Deep, and there is the grond in pelenor fields. At least the orcs look a little better.

Well, The weathertop thing is wierd but there were many more wildmen in saruman's armies than the movies show (battering ram was dunlandish) and the size of the balrog is ALOT smaller in the books. Originally when he wrote the chapter it was said to be of man-height, which changed to it was man height but felt bigger than it was, and finally in the published version it is of man-shape but greater. Besides which, the balrog is at least 5 times the size of the men its fighting. What's wrong with grond at pelennor? However, I agree with the fact that its probably going to have some wierd stuff. Mages? And the evil campaign will have to be rather non-linear, as it was never written by Tolkien. Doesn't seem that much worse than alot of things in the movies/BFME/LOTRO/etc games though. I'm looking forward to playing it.

Despair is only for those who see the end beyond all doubt. We do not. It is wisdom to recognize necessity, when all other courses have been weighed, though as folly it may appear to those who cling to false hope. Well, let folly be our cloak, a veil before the eyes of the Enemy! For he is very wise, and weighs all things to a nicety in the scales of his malice. But the only measure that he knows is desire, desire for power; and so he judges all hearts. Into his heart the thought will not enter that any will refuse it, that having the Ring we may seek to destroy it. If we seek this, we shall put him out of reckoning.

i dunno about it because of some things like a mage class. that was kinda shocking when i heard it last night :p
hopefully it wont stray too much from the actual lore, even having the evil campaign shouldnt give them lisence to go completely overboard. i also heard of a ringbearer mode online where one person is frodo trying to escape from the other 15 players... all of whom are ringwraiths. that one hurt to listen to. lol

I really don't care what the looks are or such stuff, I just wish it was on PSP...There needs to be more LOTR titles on the PSP. I don't even have LOTR Tactics...
