General: Shogo is an sci-fi anime-like
FPS game. The player can play on foot or enter a giant mech. All of the mechs
are pretty fast compared to mech simulators. Sanjuro(main character) must defeat
The Fallen(evil empire). Your weapons differ depending if you are on foot or in
your mech. Shogo is powered by the LithTech 3D engine by Monolith.

Comment: The story for the game was pretty good. I even wrote a FAQ for the game. Technically, this game is a lot better than Blood 2(also made by Monolith), but this game never really grew on me. No on really plays online, and single player gets boring the third time through. At the time though, this game was pretty good.
