Power Instinct falls along the lines of Fatal Fury, but it falls short. It has cool practice modes and eight familiar fighters but a disappointing boss, who's a palette-swap of a playable character.

ProTips:

  • For a five-hit combo as Keith Wayne, press Down, Down-Toward, Toward, and Button X. Continuously press X and Up-Toward as you finish the kick to flip over your opponem and kick them from behind.
  • Oume, the boss, and Otane are vulnerable to attack when morphing.

The graphics are passable. Average music and sound effects give you standard battle cries and kung fu tunes.

With double jumps and special moves, control is Pi's finest feature. The normal setting is easy, so veterans must ramp up the difficulty.

For martial arts madmen looking to pound new faces, PI is worth renting -- but it's no substitute for power hitters.
