June 6, 1996, A mysterious explosion destroys the Chernolton research facility near Moscow. Lucifer Alpha, a powerful biological weapon under secret development there is released into the atmosphere, creating a deadly biohazard. Carried by the trade winds, Lucifer Alpha spreads through out Eastern Europe and Eurasia, destroying 80% of the populace. Half of the world's people die. The greatest biohazard in history later simply becomes known as "The Catastrophe". But at this time who could have possibly imagined that the ultimate biohazard wouldn't occur for another half century. 50 years later mankind faces its greatest crisis, the appearance of a mysterious android life form. It's purpose and origin are unknown. Is it a new kind of weapon? Or perhaps an invasion from some other world. They appear during winter killing humans, and infiltrating society by taking the place of their victims. Employing an artificial skin, they can sweat and even bleed. Part organic, part machine, they're ... Written by Napoleon

Superior to any other game
30 July 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This game is a classic, there are no others like it. The story pulls you in, the violence is very gory and is Scary enough that you might not want to play this game alone. Unfortunately, you can only play the game via Sega CD or PC. It is worth buying the old Sega CD if you can find one. Believe me, I kept buying Used Sega CDs that broke easily, and ended up buying 3 Sega CDs altogether, mainly so I could play this game again! (Even after I already completed it!)

You take control as Gillian Seed, a man with Amnesia, in which the only thing he can remember, is the word SNATCHER, so he joins the JUNKER team (A team meant for combating Snatchers) in hopes of regaining his memory. You take control of him on his first day. The acting is very realistic, unlike some other videogames, and the music is terrifying. This is a very rare and enjoyable game, you will love it no matter what your interests are. Play this game with the lights off.
