Game Overview

The Gogetsu Clan ... every five years there is a tournament to determine the leader. Any descendant may enter and the current leader Oume has been there for 60 years. Little does the 78-year-old champion know that her younger sister who ran away from home, as well as six others, will be trying to take her place. Fight for the right to lead the powerful clan and become its leader.


The game plays very well and really resembles its arcade counterpart.


While offering new twists to street fighting games, PI will have a hard time up against SSF2 and MK2.


The Granny lady who throws her teeth and smashes her face at you. Geeze Granny, take a chill pill.

Power Instinct is best known for its bizarre characters and wacky special moves. Atlus has decided to translate this coin-op to the Genesis, and it's supposed to be nearly identical.

Power Instinct has a motley cast of characters, like Goketsuji Otane. She's an old woman who can launch her dentures. She can become younger for even more moves.

This cart stands out among the few fighting games for the Genesis, simply because it has a sense of humor, yet it's still a sound game of one-on-one.

This game has a lot in common with Street Fighter II. The control in most cases is smooth and fluid but some of special moves are a bit hard to pull off. The sound effects and voices are okay and adequate for the game. There are an abundant amount of special moves that you can master. A very excellent feature of this game is the Practice Mode where you can select one of four modes to fight in. They include 1P vs. Dummy (standing), 1P vs. Dummy (kneeling), 1P vs. Computer and 1P vs. 2P. The actual Vs.

Mode allows you to select up to eight different fighters to do battle with. The graphics are on par with the original Street Fighter II game with nothing that we haven't seen before. The character animation is good, making it pleasurable to watch, and free of jerky movements.
