The instructions book says the circle button is drop down. It didn't work.
I guess I missed something?
I think you're referring to the smash takedown? Which has to be done through glass, which only exists on the the building in the room.. Just like using the breakable walls with Explosive Gel in other levels, some things can only be accomplished at specific places. The one where you have to land on the guy's head on the other hand, you have to time and aim your jump to land on his head and knock him down. Be careful as it's possible to think you landed on him when you just kicked him down. You'll know you did it right if you get a medal when you land on him.
