I press the button when I see the icon on screen... and it just seems to be completely random as to whether I'm "too early", "too late" or actually reverse the move. Sometimes I'll press it and it won't even tell me I've fucked it up. I'll just get hit with the move. Urgh.
The reason for your issue is the fact that, for as long as I can remember, they're still mapping it to the R2 button. Think about that. The function in the game which requires the most precision has been mapped to the largest button which takes the longest to press and register. Niegh...
And while we're on the subject of reversing, I've recently found a problem in Chain Grapple reversals. They're seriously broken.
By which I mean, they're far too easy to pull off. If you get put in a grapple, for example, and you just start mindlessly pressing R2 repeatedly, there's a 75% chance you'll wriggle your way out of it, regardless of how long they delay the move for.
This, in turn, creates heaps of really awkward stalemates between two players online, and is why I've been either keeping to hardcore matches or referee'ing most of the time.
