    It's a great visual novel. I will never know that because for years I have failed to enjoy visual novels. Can't do it. Would like to, but doesn't ever take.

      Snatcher - European Sega CD version (uncensored blood and boobs)
      Policenauts - Japanese Saturn version

        The nudity is censored everywhere you moron. And the blood was never censored to begin with.

        The nudity is censored everywhere you moron. And the blood was never censored to begin with.

        People misunderstand a lot of the differences.
        The nudity was in those parts:
        - when Gillian sees Katherine taking a shower (Sega CD american version obscures part of her)
        - when a certain character has her clothes ripped off, you can see a breast in the PC Engine CD version (every other version covers her up)

        The blood was censored in the Playstation/Saturn version. There's the infamous scene of a character with his head ripped off. In the PC Engine CD version, the position of the body is different but still bloody, the Sega CD version is way more gory (because of the position of the body), and the Playstation/Saturn version scrolls up from the very beginning of the scene, so you only see his head for an instant.

        Another scene that was censored in every version but the PC Engine CD was the dog twitching with her organs splattered about.

        Lastly, I'm pretty sure the rotting skull in the morgue is censored in the Playstation/Saturn version, with just a mosaic over it.

        There's no perfect version. PC Engine CD has all the sexual innuendo and nudity, Sega CD has the gory scene, and the Playstation/Saturn version is almost an all-ages version.

          So does the euro version.

          The PC Engine would be perfect if not for the soundtrack. Mega Drive's FM sound sounds much better than PSG for non-redbook tracks.

      Snatcher for the PC Engine, Policenauts for Saturn. Both original Japanese uncensored versions, not troonylations.

    It's pretty funny that, even back then, Kojima was shamelessly lifting stuff from movies.

      They had to change some stuff from the PC Engine CD version to not risk being sued. IIRC, the Snatcher's eyes were red in that version (allusion to Terminator) and were changed to green in other versions. The scene with the Konami cameos in the bar had copyrighted characters in the PC Engine CD version (Guyver, Planet of the Apes, Star Wars).

      Policenauts is basically Lethal Weapon.

      You probably didn't watch anime from that era, japs literally breathed with american culture. Robocop, Terminator, Bladerunner, horrors, rock singers... they shamelessly stole everything that looked good. And they cannot be blamed, because it was the last flowering of that culture

    The pacing is worse that Snatcher but the visuals are impressive

      I wonder why it was. It certainly felt like certain narrative beats had dragged on longer than necessary.

        Good game but not as good as Snatcher.

        >I wonder why it was.
        Because it was bigger and longer which isn't always better.

    A mediocre Kojima game, worth a playthrough though.
