Overall, the game is a true masterpiece. From the incredible graphics and soundtrack, to the compelling story, Policenauts is a true classic. The only shame is that this great game was never released stateside. Even though it is obviously in Japanese and all of the nuances of the story can't be found by non-Japanese readers, it still tells an incredible story just by sheer visual presentation alone. If you are a fan of Snatcher, or are just looking for a game that you can fully immerse yourself in, look no further than Policenauts.
It can be said in all honesty that Policenauts has one of the best game storylines ever. Of course, I (a person whose entire grasp of the Japanese language came from three whole weeks of class) had a bit of help from Nick Rox understanding the intricate plot. I can only dream of seeing this "sequel" to Snatcher in English (I want to play it again so bad), but thanks to Konami's sports fever, the chances of seeing gems like this (or Genso) here in the states is about nil.
This game is gorgeous to look at, painful to listen to and altogether more confusing than accidentally walking in on your parents when you were eight. Maybe that was just me. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Hideo Kojima is a genius, but a disturbed genius. His games make so little sense that they bend the fabric of space and time.
