Snatcher is an Action-Adventure game made by Konami. Hero Gillian Seed is working for a police organization named JUNKERS (Japanese Undercover Neuro-Cinetic Elimination Rangers). He is investigating the Snatcher-cases. Snatchers are Terminator-like robots, who eliminate people and take their places afterwards. Snatcher was the second game written and directed by Hideo Kojima (Metal Gear Solid).
The game is mainly played from the first-person-perspective. The player has the following commands to use: "Look", "Investigate", "Talk", "Ask", and "Move" (there are additional options appearing, too, though), furthermore you have to purchase key items or gain important information from other people.

Only violence- and nudity-censoring have been considered in this article. The Japanese version has often longer dialogue, more slapstick comedy and some background graphics have been altered.
The Japanese Version (MSX2-, NEC PC- and CD-Romantic) are identical regarding the censorship and with the exception of one scene (see article: torso) can be considered uncensored. This one scene is only contained in the Sega CD-version. Only the Sega CD-version has been translated into English and released outside of Japan. Furthermore, there is a fan-translation for MSX2. However, the Sega CD versio is censored somewhere else, meaning that there is no complete uncensored version of this game.
