According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Violence

Parents, Power Stone 2 isn't like your typical two-player fighting game, but that doesn't make it less fun either. If you're a parent of multiple young children, Power Stone 2 in simple and entertaining enough to could keep them occupied just long enough for the babysitter to arrive. The violence is very anime-cartoony (like DragonBall Z) and often very silly (umbrella attacks anyone?). There isn't any profanity or nudity to be concerned about either.

Hardcore fans of the original Power Stone should not be disappointed with the sequel since it cranks up just about every feature from the original with amazing quality.

Multiplayer fans on the Dreamcast also have another solid party title on their hands. Only the overall play-life is questionable, given its scant amount of stages, and the problematic item collecting feature. An endless supply of human competitors could make up for the lack of diversity, but sadly there's no online feature as of yet and you'll have to dial-up your buddies the old fashion way and have them come over in just plain old reality.

In the 1980s, Chi grew up in small town on the outskirts of New York City called Jackson Heights. Latino actor, John Leguizamo referred to the town as the "melting pot of the world," and while living there, Chi was exposed to many diverse cultures, as well as a bevy of arcade classics such as Pac-Man, Space Ace, Space Harrier and Double Dragon. Chi's love of videogames only seemed to grow as his parents finally caved and bought him an 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System (after being the only kid in the block without one). In the 1990s, Chi finagled his way into the prestigious Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School for the Performing Arts.

Somewhere between all the gaming, Chi some how managed to finish high school and get into the New York Institute of Technology. At the same time, Chi also interned at Virtual Frontiers, an Internet software consultancy where he learned the ways of HTML. Soon after acquiring his BFA, Chi went on to become the lead Web designer of the Anti-Defamation League. During his tenure there, Chi was instrumental in redesigning and relaunching the non-profit organization's Web site.

Today, Chi is the webmaster of the American Red Cross in Greater New York and somehow managed to work through the tragic events of September 11th without losing his sanity. Chi considers his life's work and continues to be amazed that the web site is still standing after the recent dotcom fallout. It is his dream that will accomplish two things: 1) Redefine the grammar of videogames much the same way French film critic Andre Bazin did for the art of cinema and 2) bring game criticism to the forefront of mainstream culture much the same way Siskel & Ebert did for film criticism.
