One of Japan's Most Gory Games
Before hitting the U.S., Smtcher earned a reputation in Japan for its sometimes brutally blood-splattered action.
For example, you see a very graphic depiction of a beheaded cop and examine his stomach contents.
And it just gets better (or worse?) from there. Squeamish gamers might want to think twice about digging deep into this one.
Gibson s desperate call (or bachup on a cornered Snatcher comes from an abandoned factory.
You play as Gillian Seed, a techno Junker cop with military training and a case of amnesia.
You've been assigned to the Neo Kobe, Japan, office to investigate the outbreak of Snatchers, mysterious bioengineered creatures that kill people and take their places in society.
As a Junker, you must seek out Snatchers. And once you've found one, you waste it. You have a serious blaster to help you carry out your duties, a Navigator robot named Metal Gear with a very quirky personality, a wad of cash, and a Junker ID.
The game play is carried out in a mix of static and active screens, with intermission graphics highlighting travel and other key events.
Snatcher is long and involved, making the save feature a necessity. You can save either to the Sega CD's internal memory or to the new CD Backup RAM Cart.
- Save often to keep from replaying large sections of the game.
- It is difficult to control the blaster sections of the game with a control pad. A Justifier makes gunning down Snatchers much easier.
Grip your blaster and step deep into the cyberpunk future. Past action. Beyond shooting. Into a new kind of RPG. Kon-ami is going to rock your world with Snatcher, a one-player hard-core thriller full of bioengineered bad guys, high-tech hardware, and more twists and turns than a Neo Kobe alleyway.
You need a control pad. And a Justifier game gun plugged into port 2 might just save your life.
Snatcher starts hard, gets tougher, and is about as brutal as anything we've seen on a Sega CD.
Konami has brought this one to market with fantastic voice, sound effects, and music.
And as the first RPG that can use more than one peripheral at the same time, Snatcher could be the start of a whole new level of interactive gaming.
