    I have never been more disappointed in a game than with Shogo. After installing the game, I proceeded to look at the help file for the default key config, and was shocked by how inconvenient the whole setup was. I th... Read Full Review

    Hello Kitty

    A great game that still works with Windows XP ::hint:: ::hint::

    This game has a great story. The type of complex story that you can expect from a complex Japanese Manga. Confusing really. I've been playing it since 1999 and I still do not know the story that well. This game does s... Read Full Review

    Can you say "Underappreciated?"

    Shogo: MAD has to be THE most undersold pc game ever. I bought this and Septerra Core (sucked!) from Target for $10. I thought it would be some RPG. I was wrong. Even though the graphics are about mid-Windows 98, the ... Read Full Review

    Re-enlisting with the Mobile Armor Division

    It has been a couple of years since I played Shogo and I always had very fond memories of it so I was a bit nervous when installing it again. Unpatched it ran free of hassles on my XP installation save for the odd crash ... Read Full Review

    Fun game... Back then...

    I bought this game years ago on a special offer. Well, when I tried it for the first time, I saw that the game was about 90% Anime like. No, it wasn't something bad, it was pretty funny. Well the game holds some funny hu... Read Full Review
