Review by BaGeRa

"One heck of a gaming gem, or are they three..."

Man have you got that feeling going that once you buy a fighting game you're going get bored in a matter of less than 2 days, and that you'll be back to mowing the grass business for it has got more replay value...well, all's about to end due to the arrival of Power Stone 2.Read on...

Story ( 5 out of 5 winks )
...........................

Power Stone 2 kicks off with my buddies and your's ( Power Stone 2's heroes ) gliding peacefully through the skies and above the deep blue sea. All of a sudden, lightning strikes and our friends are caught in what looks like a huge island... the Power Stone world. Your mission, is to get off the island by finishing off a series of levels while fighting bosses in the process.

Graphics ( 5 out of five winks )
.................................

Fresh out of the arcade quality graphics... that's the graphics in a short summary. All's there from crispy visuals to magnificent lightning effects. The environments vary from a space ship floating in the clear sky, to an alien ridden station. The characters are all smooth and really show the power of your dove ( Dreamcast ). On to the sounds...

Sounds ( 5 out of 5 winks )
............................

The sounds are really grabbing and vary according to the situation... When you are gliding on a spaceship all's cool with rhythmic tunes and melodies, but once the ship is destroyed the mood shifts to an exciting one... hit me baby.The announcer has a nice voice and if he was a singer he'd do well i guess.

...........................................................

But what are sounds and graphics worth if there wasn't gameplay you say... chill man don't be so rushy...

Gameplay ( 15 out of 15 winks )
................................

Oh dear where should i start ... the game is full of fine ideas that you just don't know how to express yourself.But the best point is that all the environments allow you to interact with them leading to a haloova of fun... You can grab on to poles or use boxes and pots to cover yourself from the destructive powerfusion your friend is using against you ( every time you collect three power stones your character transforms into an alter-ego and will have an incredible strength, to tell you the truth more powerful than the man of steel himself). The characters are plenty varying from big but slow to fast but weak.The game is full to the gills with play modes put in there to fit your needs ( Adventure, Original for up to 4 players, Arcade, and 1 on 1 ). Also there's a huge item collecting mode where you can be your own inventor and come up with more than 120 items using more than 360 recipes, and once you invent an item you can use it in the battle arenas. These are just a dot on a big white paper of what you're going to meet in the game so you probably know what you should be doing now...

Lifespan ( 10 out of 10 winks )
...............................

To infinity and beyond baby . Even if you get bored of the plethora of modes ( that's more impossible than mission impossible I tell you ), you'll still be coming back for the 4 player thrills the game has to offer. And there's still those items to invent...

............................................................

OVERALL (40 out of 40 winks)
..............................
This game manages to get the WHOLE 40 WINKS ( :) ) and according to fit gamefaqs needs it gets the whole ten out of ten ( the whole nine yards, whatever you name it... ). Whatever your age is you will never be dissappointed with what this game has to offer, from cool graphics to a never ending story, not to forget the cool environments...

............................................................

THIS GAME GETS 10 OUT OF 10 and is really a MUST BUY. This was BaGeRA signin' off...
