* MegaCorp: Shogo Industries as well Armacham Technology Corporation. Strongly implied to be the same Armacham that appears in [[FirstEncounterAssaultRecon F.E.A.R.]]. There is also Andra Biomechanics (the third founding corporation for the UCA, and apparently a backer for the Cronian Mining Consortium), though they don't play as large a part in the storyline as Shogo (and unlike Armacham doesn't show up in another franchise).

Gameplay-wise, Shogo features levels where Sanjuro is on foot as well as missions where he pilots one of four HumongousMecha, which run the gamut from FragileSpeedster to MightyGlacier. However, the mecha levels play just like a standard on-foot FirstPersonShooter, just on a larger scale and different weapons (and a "vehicle mode" which lets the mecha travel faster at the expense of being unable to fire). The game is notable for allowing both the player and enemies to inflict [[CriticalHit critical hits]] on each other, which both inflict extra damage and restore the attacker's health.

Shogo was promoted by Monolith as one of the first FirstPersonShooter games to focus heavily on story instead of just mindless blasting, and indeed there is quite a lot of dialogue in the game as well as a point near the end where the story progression and final set of levels are determined by a choice the player makes. Unfortunately for Monolith, [[VideoGame/HalfLife1 a certain other game]], also featuring an immersive story, came out a month and a half later and most people promptly lost interest in Shogo, effectively killing off both planned expansion packs and any chance for a sequel (although the main story was wrapped up pretty well, so follow-up games may not have been strictly necessary).

Added DiffLines:

* MeleeATrois: The different enemy factions will fight each other as well as the player; however, they normally aren't encountered in the same area. The only way to see this happening is on certain maps controlled by one faction, which are attacked by another faction once the player triggers an objective. On those maps, you have to run to the objective without killing most of the enemies, so they'll still be around when the new enemies from a rival faction get spawned in.
