User reviews for Shogo
9.0 / 10Combined Score
People on Multiplayer are very good. Sometimes you can get killed less than a second after you respawn
A whole lot of controls to memorize
A very good game. You can play as one of two things: a human or a mech.
In each mode there are about 9-10 different weapons.
The Human weapons (Referred to as OF weapons), some of them:
Some sort of knife, Double Pistols, Shotgun, Assault Rifle, Energy Grenades, Kato Grenades, the TOW
The Mech weapons (Referred to as MCA weapons):
Juggernaut, Pulse Rifle, some sort of beam saber or something, Red Riot, Sniper Rifle, the Shredder
But, probably the best mode is the Multiplayer mode.
Utilizing the Shogo Server, you can create your own server and add what you can use, like Ramming Damage, Tractor Beams, etc. Also, you can select which stages can be used, and when the stage changes.
You can find out the server...
Loading time takes forever on a 200 mhz. Multiplayer is not as popular as Quake II.
You're this dude, and you have to save the world from this vilain. So you do and you win. But this is all in Japanesse Anime style action, really cool.
The voice acting is superb. The graphics are nice too even on a Voodoo Banshee (16 bit).
You fight in three modes:
-Human sized Mech
Basically you fight in and out of your Mech, really cool, and you can jump into whichever mech you want too. Lots of gore too.
Oh yeah, this is like watching Fists of the North Star the ultra violent cartoon, just with guns instead of hand to hand.
The intro is very Manga, especially the music
If you're tired of playing Quake or Half Life or UT, try this one, especially if you like Anime. One of the more Original titles in this very cliche-ish First...
