in Japan. Policenauts is an adventure game in which players take on
the role of a private investigator who also happens to be an
astronaut placed in charge of protecting one of Earth's first
colonies in space.

HOpe you enjoy it! :)
- It's good news, but I was kinda surprised to see Gamespot even care about them re-re-releasing it (yes, taht's right, it's the 3RD release for it on the PSX). Oh well, whatever, I'm still gonna buy it, cause I AM the Policenauts master!!! lol *cough*
- I still have yet to play this game, though of course I hear nothing but good things about it. And being a Snatcher fan I'm sure I'll love it. But why in the world release a game for the third time without even translating it? I'm still dying to try that remade Snatcher for the PSX that they never translated.
Do you Yahoo!?

- Any game that was put into this "PSOne Book" series are games that sold very well, were highly sought after and did critically well too. Even the Policenauts "Best of" sold well, but obviously the printing was smaller and was discontinued awhile back. Demand for it was still there, so they released it again, and cheaper.Seems pretty cool. I knew many years ago that we would never get it here anyways, so at least this will help people get it cheaper and be able to enjoy it if they never have. As for Snatcher, the remakes were ok. Many things were re-done, mostly for the worse. Still worth it to check it out, but, by far, the best is the Sega CD version
