Snatcher - Mega-CD, 15/3/95
This is Konami's first Mega CD-specific title, and will probably be the last. Something of a shame, as Snatcher is rather good fun.
Set in the future, the game sees you as the strangely-named Gabriel Seed, whose job it is to track down the Terminator-like Snatchers.
It's a fairly conventional adventure, but makes a nice change of pace for a console game.
From Snatcher's menu, you travel around a Japanese megopolis interrogating witnesses, eating clues and ringing saucy party lines on your phone.
The detective work is occasionally broken up by shoot 'em up sections - compatible with Konami's light gun, if you so desire.
The game can be saved at any stage via your irritating robot sidekick Metal Gear. We hated him.
Snatcher is a decent game. The graphics and interface are a bit dated, and at times the investigation becomes a little frustrating.
Mostly though, the game is a blast. The twisty-turny plot should see you sound for weeks. Sound like a dying bee.
Though unlikely to appeal to most console owners, if we mention the gratuitous sex and violence, their ears should prick up.
But it's over 18s only.
