I am having difficulty unlocking the following achievements:

I have done each attack a lot more then 3 times each now and for whatever reason it just won't unlock. Is there something I am missing?? Do I need to hold down a button while attacking or something :confused:

I'm assuming you bought the required upgrades? I unlocked the 'Airborn assailer' last night actually, so I it's pretty fresh. Hold Y to launch and then hold B/X/A to do the attack, are you holding down the button? The grab attacks I did a while ago so I would have to refresh myself on those.

Looking at your achievement history it looks like your game might be bugged though, I see you have unmissable story related achievements still unlocked but you have the achievement for completing the game.

Ya I bought the upgrades. I'm not holding down the buttons though so that has to be it. I'll try this out tonight when I have chance to play again, ty for the response.

Not sure what's up with story specific cheeves not unlocking yet.I still need to do a 2nd playthough on hard so maybe that's it?

Yeah once you have launched them you have to hold the attack button to do the special air attacks, just a tap of the button is a normal attack.

That shouldn't have mattered, I haven't done my hard playthrough yet but I have all those, fingers crossed they will pop when you do the levels on hard though.

Well I just finished up the entire game; all of the chapter related cheeves unlocked with no problem but I still can't get the damn grab & airborne attacks to unlock. I've tried them so many different ways- holding and not holding down grab, holding and not holding attack etc.

I have no idea why it's not unlocking. I have done all grab & airborne moves with both spidermans. I read somwhere that the grab & airborne cheeves might not unlock unless you perform the moves on level 13 and beyond. So just to be safe I did chapter select and started out on 13 and worked my way through all the moves with both spidermans but to no avail.

WTF:confused:

*edit* 7/23/12- Deleted my game save, started a new file, declined update, played offline, once all grab/jump moves were available again I was able to get both cheeves relatively quick. Not sure why I had to do this but whatever I'm very happy to be done with this game!
