...You know, my the first and second on Malefor's battle, the fury meter won't goes up. But at the third battle, you can attack Malefor's shield barrier to fill up your fury meters...

#10430 Cyrax650 15:52:02 24/04/2012
why is it that there are achievements to be earned on the Xbox version of the game but not ps3 version? its quite strange but still this was an amazing game but it was a shame that some people made a mockery of this
