About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

Tensions rise as Fatal Frame 2boasts a new mode that allows the player to move through the lost village in the first person view. The player experiences limited sight leading to higher insecurities and an increased feeling of vulnerability in the most terrifying Fatal Frame mode to date.

Fatal Frame 2: Crimson Butterfly is the sequel to one of the scariest horror games of all-time. Its storyline follows the haunting tale of twin sisters trapped in an abandoned village and forced to deal with spirits of a once sacred, now demonic ritual. The psychological thriller features a unique camera-combat system that can now be upgraded, a more disturbing atmosphere and setting, and a sheer terror-fest of ghoulish apparitions. The frightening voyage continues this Halloween as Fatal Frame 2 makes its way to the Xbox video game system with an additional first person view mode, new costumes, more ghosts, and a new survival mode that will have you trembling for more!

Another mode created exclusively for the Xbox version called the Survival mode takes on a more action-oriented approach as the player encounters one ghost after another for a real test of the player's skills and mastery of the sole weapon in the game, the Camera Obscura. New creepy settings, enhanced graphics and sound, additional costumes, and a new "not of this world" final boss, all add up to a new kind of psychological thrill ride only on Xbox.
