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.

Part organic, part machine, they're ... Written by Napoleon

Snatcher - The greatest game of all time !!!!
25 June 2001 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

You know after so many years , i still think that Snatcher is the best game of all time. The closest i can think of is Metal Gear Solid that btw is done my the same Master MR. Hideo Kojima . The plot/story call it like you want is mind blowing. If only i could find some old Sega Cd and a copy of that game , you know what i gona check it now on Ebay :)
