Review by Kueller
"An amazing thriller by Konami that will keep you on the edge of your seat..."
Neo Tokyo, sometime in the future. Over 50% of the world's population have beendecimated by a virus. Now, a new breed of humans has come into the world to take control of mankind. But are they really human? You are Gillian Seed, the newest member of J.U.N.K.E.R, a private investigation company currently researching the greatest creation of the human hand - Snatchers.
What are Snatchers? They look like something right out of the movie "Terminator". But oh no, they're much worse than that. They are hunters, programmed to kill targets, and "snatch" their skin, so they can use it to track their next victim. Cool, huh? As Gillian Seed, you're objectives are to find out who is behind the Snatcher project, and stop it at all costs.
Everything you could ask for in a game is found in Snatcher. The voice acting is tremendous, the animation is superb, and the action sequences leave nothing to be desired. The game's one flaw? Censorship. The US release of Snatcher is far from tame, but the japanese version was far more gruesome. Those added details could have increased the amount of fear in the player, as well as add a bit more excitement to the game.
All in all, this game is phenominal. If you like games which keep you guessing until the very end, this one is right up your alley.
