Giant Robot Quotient: 8 from PC Accelerator

            

Forget What You Think You Know About Giant Robots...

The Andra Predator MCA runs, jumps, ducks, strafes, swims, and transforms into an ultrafast hovertank. And because the Predator is as responsive and agile as its human pilot, it can do anything you can do, only better, faster, and at five times the scale. You may have driven giant robots, but you've never piloted Mobile Combat Armor. Until now.

Game Features:

Choose to pilot one of four transformable Mobile Combat Armor units (MCAs)

Two modes of play - on foot and in MCA

Anime-inspired characters and storyline

True 3D environments with realistic lighting, indoor levels, vast outdoor terrains, and awesome effects

Over 30 challenging enemies that use the environment to their advantage, activate alarms, or spring traps

Dynamic storyline and goal-based mission structure evolve based on your actions

Separate MCA and on-foot arsenals for a total of 18 pumped-up weapons

Multiplayer action includes built-in Internet, LAN, and modem support

Full Direct3D support for superior graphics performance


Requirements:

Windows 95/98/ME/XP, Pentium 166 or equivalent (Pentium II recommended), 32MB system RAM, 100% DirectSound compatible sound card, 4x CD-ROM drive, Direct 3D 4MB video card recommended (required for systems below Pentium 233). Does not support GForce video cards - patches are available on PlanetShogo.com and Shogomad.com but they can be difficult and may not work 100%.

Tested OK on Windows XP. Install shogo22.zip patch for best results.


Previews:

PC Accelerator, October 1998

"What It's About: Anime-inspired mayhem in both a 40-foot-tall mecha and on foot, running around futuristic cityscapes blowing things up. Awww yeah. Running on the upstart LithTech engine, which according to early reports is a very robust, fast engine with lots of fancy extras.

"The Story: True to the spirit of anime, it's very convoluted and melodramatic and involves personal redemption, rescuing a faithful girlfriend, and an evil villain. Storytelling was a high priority for the Shogo team, and it should show in a strong single-player mode."

"Giant Robot Factor: Anime giant robots are where it's at; hopefully it won't play much like an ordinary first-person shooter. A 3D card will be required, which is fitting considering the abundant special effects and big explosions."
