1996 DX engine trouble

My friend has a 96 DX sedan manual trans. It has nearly 300k on it. It has been running fine up until here recently. Lately as you're giving it gas going through the gears, the motor revs high but then comes back down but doesn't move as it should. The best analogy I can give is hydroplaning whereas the engine is taching as it should but the car doesn't "take off" as it should. This happens through all the gears and if you are traveling at a consistent speed and then give it gas to change lanes, etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
