Sounds like the flapper may be closing too soon. Make sure the tank is full, to the "water line" mark that is either stamped in the tank or indicated on the overflow pipe. With the lid off of the tank, flush it and see how soon the flapper closes. After the tank refills, flush it again, but this time hold the handle down for a couple of seconds. See if that gives you a "bowl emptying flush".
