ive been trying to beat extra arcade mode on Soul Calibur II on PS2 with every character, on hard mode, without dying once. ive done this with every character except for Raphael. i keep getting killed in his last fight against Nightmare.
i know its a long shot, but has anyone got any tips on this stage? or if you know any useful moves for Raphael that would be great too.
popup moves and juggles are also invaluable for free hits, then follow up with a move that hits them while they're on the ground. then you can try grabbing again just as they get up and begin the standup animation -- then resume the cycle
