->The lack of gravity, or solid ground. or even or a regular daylight cycle all contribute to medical problems that characters ''sure do love taking their sweet time'' explaining. It is '''[[Creator/HideoKojima Kojima]]''', after all, and if there's one example of how drastically his skills at characterization, world-building, and plot development collide with [[ProtectionFromEditors the sheer inefficiency of his writing]], it's ''Policenauts''... No one in real life talks like this! It just pulls you out of the world and reminds you that it's conservatively-translated Japanese sci-fi from the Nineties! The technological marvels we enjoy in real life are mundane to us; they're ordinary. But the people in ''Policenauts'' won't shut up about them! I have no idea how this piece of plastic [a motherboard] can turn into a computer, and I've never really had reason to case. But if I were a ''Policenauts'' character I could tell you in 400 words or less!

->You'll note the film avoids the most deadly of devices, the opening montage in which a narrator fills in the background of an imagined world. It kills the momentum before it has a chance to develop, info-dumping on the audience before we have people to care about. Sometimes films that provide all the needed info as they go along still have the montage introductions tacked on at the beginning. When this happens I always envision [[ExecutiveMeddling a note given by an inattentive studio executive]] falsely convinced it will clarify, rather than deaden, the action.

The best entertainment to be had in this book is in fact imagining most of this dialogue delivered by actual [[DoctorWho Dalek]]s. My favorite line is ''"[[AC:Sit down. You will be more comfortable]]."''
