Snatcher Versions

I did not know which forum to put this in since it deals with saturn, pc-engine, sega-cd etc.

Anyways, I was wondering if I should be playing the US Sega-CD version of Snatcher or the JAP version for Sega-CD? Is there any real difference besides the language? Also I see that Snatcher is best for Sega-CD... Or so it seems. It beats the PC-Engine, psx, and saturn versions. Is this information is correct?

Thanks in advance.
 
Yes the game is censored in the US version.

The best version is indeed the Mega CD version, then Sega Saturn, then PS, then the rest.

The US version is still very good, so keep with that one.
 
What I mean is that the US version is censored compared to the japanese, whatever the hardware (before the japanese Saturn and PS versions, which are censored too) you compare it to.

There's a code that unlocks the uncensored scenes in the U.S. version(Sega CD).. It's been a while since I played, but at the computer in the beginning you type in Konami and it unlocks them.. I'm pretty sure that's it, if it's not I stand corrected, but I know the code exist.
 
IIRC the changes :

- Jean-Jacques is less err... "exposed" (I'm trying to avoid spoiling the fun ^^)

- Catherine is sixteen instead of thirteen.

- You don't get to see her naked in the shower scene.

- The half naked half dead snatcher in Act II is a bit less showing it's stuff.

- the hospital scenes in Act III are less crude.

- Much less mature language from Gillian.

Anyway if the re's is a code that allows you to enjoy it, good ^^

Quoted from GameFaqs

"Select the ''Load I.D. file'' option on the Jordan computer, then enter the name ''KONAMI''. A sound will play. The changes are nothing big, with the exception of Katrina's shower scene... "

Played through Snatcher a while back but never knew about the code then, thank you Gens for letting me play through this excellent title which I would have otherwise missed

What does typing "Kojima" on Jordan do? And does this mean it is worth it to send myself crazy by reading a translation and playing the japanese sega cd version, or playing the US one?

There's no japanese version of the Mega CD version of Snatcher.

I prefer the japanese version but you need an average level of Japanese to enjoy it (especially one tough riddle with Kanjis).

Actually Antime I was desperately trying to forward you guys to that page but I couldn't find it in my favorites. Thanks for the link ^^

I seem to remember someone saying that tha Konami JORDAN code didnt really do anyting at all. But yeah, I'm pretty sure the PCE cd version is regarded as the "best" followed by the Sega CD version. And I dont know where Artemo is nowadays, but you can still look at his Snatcher Page for a pretty good analysis of all the versions of the game.
 
It's funny coz I always heard myself that the best version was on Mega CD (thanks to the laser gun compatibility notably). The great plus of the PCE version is that there is a "Snatcher Pilot Disk", which is truely awesome.

anyway you can't make the wrong move, that game just kicks major ass whatever the version.

I also heard that it was only on Sega CD and not Mega CD. Err, and light gun compatibility is always a plus. Now where can I get a laser gun for my Genesis
?
