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.

Lead a four-man fireteam of US Marines through the perils of authentic, modern urban combat in a Middle-Eastern urban battleground. This is an action-oriented, first-person 3D shooter that is being developed under the direction of the US Marine Corps as a training simulation for use by the Marine Corps. Close Combat: First to Fight is as close as you can get on a computer or Xbox to being a Marine fireteam leader in modern urban combat!

Close Combat: First to Fight is an authentic, team-based first-person shooter created under the direction of active-duty United States Marines fresh from the front lines of combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. Set in a modern mid-eastern urban battleground, players lead a four-man Marine fireteam through the perils of modern urban combat. Together with the United States Marine Corps and Atomic Games, Destineer is creating First to Fight as a training simulation for use by the Marine Corps and will make it available to consumers in late 2004 for Xbox, Macintosh, and Windows.

The official website will be continuously updated between now and launch with new and exclusive materials that are sure to keep gamers up to date and well informed about the progress and features of First to Fight. It currently includes the following:

  • Interactive demo of R-T-F-A
  • In-depth explanation of MAGTF and various MAGTF assets (vehicles and armaments)
  • Screenshots
  • Trailer
  • Forums
  • Fansite tool kit
  • "Making it Real" section divulging how the US Marine Corps were involved with the development of First to Fight
