A classic obscure game that's worth a second look

January 24, 2015

For those of you in the market for an obscure game that's sure to get you on the edge of your seat, look no further than the interactive graphical novel game known as Policenauts. Much like Snatcher, Policenauts was written and directed by Hideo Kojima who is known mostly for his works in the Metal Gear franchise.

Outside of that, PN is a title that takes inspiration from movies just like Snatcher, which is sensible considering Kojima is a huge movie fan. After all, his twitter profile stated that "70 percent of my body is made up of movies". Not to mention the fact that the Metal Gear games he is so famous for has a knack for having a multitude of movies within them.

The inspiration for both PN and Snatcher resonates from hit films such as Lethal Weapon, Blade Runner, and The Terminator. You can easily see the influence as soon as you start the game. Policenauts originally released on the NEC PC-9821 microcomputer system back in 1994, but soon followed suit on other systems like 3DO, PS1, and even Sega Saturn.

That was the good part however, as the game itself never made it outside the confines of Japan. Something that PC-98 games are known for doing. There is hope for you English speaking fans, as a translation patch was "unofficially" made for the PS1 version, whereby you must get a copy of the game and rip it to an iso format, and then apply your patch accordingly.

PN should give you about 10-12 hours of game play, depending on how well you do throughout the game. Just like Snatcher, there are a number of ways you can die in the game, which should have a sweat drop or two coming off of your head. That's the way it should be right? Right, and while this classic obscure game is a bit hard to find, I personally would like very much for Konami to see fit to bring it to other formats such as PSN or Xbox Live. Take a look at the video below and you tell me if it's worth adding to your collection.
