I can't seem to get the timing right in order to win with the monk or the true love. I can get to the stone bridge with the true love and akuma's castle with the monk but starting from the rock bridge on I just can't maintain any semblance of rhythm with the enemies.
Ahhhh young grasshopper you must master the timing before the timing becomes your master.
if playing by pc,use keyboard,press the num6/defense as fast as possible when the time comes,i could finish the game with monk too,but the true lover(the first guy) need really good timing at defense . good luck
I just beat the game with the Monk, but True Love is just way too hard!
Once you get up to the palace, enemies hurt a lot! Just a few hits will take you down, he lacks the Monk's (and Brute's) regenerating health and the True Love doesn't seem to deal as much damage either.
