Konami's first Super CD game is a mystery unlike anything conceived before it! Gillian Seed has been placed in charge of searching for the awful killing machine, Snatcher! This robot conceals itself by 'snatching' humans, stripping them of their skin, and wearing this skin to lure its next victim!

As gruesome as it sounds, the game is an awesome concept that blends role play and action into one. Cinemas show various parts of the story as you progress. Snatcher is already receiving excellent reviews in Japan!

Game Reviews

If you're seeking action and adventure, look no further. Konami has a new action/RPG for the Sega CD. Due to popular demand (the original was a Super CD-ROM game), it was translated and is now on its way here.

You play the Junker (detective) Gillian Seed who must hunt down robotic droids that are murdering people. To do this you have to find clues, obtain evidence, and work your way through the city of Neo-Kobe. When you get into a dangerous situation, you will be able to shoot via action-oriented scenarios. Snatcher is not for kids. Its twisted plot and adult themes make for an awesome story that deserves to be on the big screen.

LOCATION: JUNKER HQ

Gillian has been ordered to the Junker Headquarters, where he learns that he is being recruited to hunt down Snatchers. After a brief tour through the building, he learns that a top runner named Jean Jack Gibson has been called in for back-up. It seems that he has found some Snatchers! You'd better try to save him before it's too late.

LOCATION OLD FACTORY

Jean Jack Gibson's last call came from the abandoned factory. The first thing you notice is that you can't use your video phone. When you and the Metal Gear find his body and the ruined parts of his Navigator mech, things become a lot more interesting. Watch for traps... and your back.

THE INVESTIGATION

With Gibson out of the way, you'll have to figure out how to follow up his case. Check out all his old files for a few hints. Your only clues point to a few contacts and the meeting place, that has some unusual customs. The plot will unravel slowly. Use all of your skills to stay on the trail of the Snatcher menace. What will you be able to find?

THE GOOD

The cyberpunk theme is one of my personal favorites. The story is great as well.

THE BAD

It's a little bit slow in some places, and unless you think carefully, you could get stuck.

THE UGLY

Seeing someone's head twisted off, maggots on corpses, and worse. It's an adult game. I love it.
