(NOTE: R1 / L1 = PS3 and RB/LB = XBOX 360)
Blocking is essential for success in this game.
A defensive strategy can bring you honor and fame.
Hold down the RB/R1 to block quick attacks,
Be forewarned: no effect on grabs or aerial acts.
Press RB/R1 before you are hit,
Unless it's a strong or charged, for you'll get lit.
Press LB/L1 before a grapple,
But not when they're charged, else you'll be made into a new Snapple.
Counter (Aerial Attacks)
Press RB/R1 or LB/L1 when your opponent is in the air,
If pressed before he connects, you'll make him wish he never dared.
When you see the icon, press LB/L1 or RB/R1.
You'll gaze in amazement when you witness what you've done.
Reversals off of Reversals
Reversals off of reversals are tricky to do,
But if you hit LB/L1 or RB/R1, you've mastered it, dude.
Just press the button when you see the icon prompt,
And you'll see a hole in the body you just stomped!
You can block a reversal attempt by paying close attention,
Just hit the correct button when the icon on the screen is mentioned.
Press LB/L1 or RB/R1 at the right time to show
That you're the best All Star that you'll ever know!
