Power Stone Collection review

Can the PSP handle this much power?


  • Free-roaming battles
  • Tons of weapons
  • Dynamic environments


  • No online support
  • Muddled on the small screen
  • Lame minigames

Power Stone was one of a kind when it was released on the Dreamcast, offering arcade-quality 3D fighting without the trip to the arcade. As with the bulk of fighting games, it suffered from a weak single player experience, but never failed to satisfy when friends were around.

Capcom, in its apparent pursuit to resurrect every classic game ever made, has brought Power Stone and Power Stone 2 to the small screen in the Power Stone Collection. The games have been ported to the PSP with a few updates, but nothing that really affects the core gameplay, which is a good thing.

DescriptionDespite remaining relatively faithful to the Dreamcast originals, the limitations of the PSP take a heavy toll on this port.
