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.


'GoldenEye: Rogue Agent' (NGC/PS2/Xbox) Goes Gold

As an aspiring 00 agent dismissed from MI6 for reckless brutality, the player is hired as an enforcer by Auric Goldfinger, the wealthy super-villain with a lust for all things gold. Goldfinger is locked in a ruthless war against his archenemy, the brilliant scientist Dr. No. The prize is control of the world's greatest criminal organization. A brutal encounter with Dr. No costs the player an eye, but Goldfinger's technicians replace it with a gold-hued, synthetic eye, earning the player the name 'GoldenEye'. Players have the ability to customize and upgrade their villain persona and wreak havoc as they make their unrelenting rise through the ranks.
Going where no previous James Bond game has dared to tread, this first-person shooter breaks all the rules by giving you the chance to cross over to the dark side of the Bond universe to experience life as a ruthless, unpredictable villain. The focus of this highly anticipated video game in the Bond series shifts from that of 007 himself to the corrupt underworld and its criminal masterminds. Wreak havoc as you make your unrelenting rise through the ranks of villainy and encounter such legendary villains and Bond girls as Xenia Onatopp, Dr. No, Goldfinger, Oddjob, Scaramanga, and Pussy Galore.

Exploit over 100 different weapon combinations through the dual-wield gunplay system, or go head-to-head, melee-style, by taking your enemies hostage or knocking ‘em out with one punch. GoldenEye: Rogue Agent fully integrates single-player, multiplayer split screen, and online gameplay for the PlayStation2 and Xbox. Featured game modes include story-based campaign missions spanning 20 gripping single-player levels and over 20 intense multiplayer arenas where you can engage in deathmatch-style showdowns and objective-based team vs. team scenarios.

With the most authentic take on the Bond universe in a video game to date, travel to famous film locations such as the top of the Golden Gate Bridge from A View to a Kill, the Pyramids from The Spy who Loved Me, and the Volcano Lair from You Only Live Twice.

GoldenEye: Rogue Agent's stellar talent roster includes Christopher Lee, who is reprising his role as the villainous Francisco Scaramanga from The Man with the Golden Gun and Judi Dench, who returns as M and has appeared in four Bond films to date. World-renowned DJ Paul Oakenfold composed an original score and created the game’s overarching musical personality with hard-driving, rhythmic beats hand-crafted for every mission. Rounding out the talent behind the game is Academy Award-winning Production Designer Sir Ken Adam (James Bond series), Costume Designer Kym Barrett (The Matrix trilogy), and Character Designer Rene Morel (Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within).
