About Judy

As WP's senior 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.

'Call Of Duty: Finest Hour' (NGC/PS2/Xbox) Invades Retail

"An all-new experience for the consoles, Call of Duty: Finest Hour is an absolute thrill ride, driving players and their squads through intense WWII battles as they head for the final assault on Germany," said Kathy Vrabeck, President, Activision Publishing. "By marrying advanced technology with the Hollywood talents of actor Dennis Haysbert, award-winning composer Michael Giacchino, veteran writer/producer Michael Schiffer and rock-and-roll superstar Brian Johnson, we're able to deliver a completely unique experience that is unrivaled in its realism and intensity."

Call of Duty: Finest Hour thrusts new recruits and hardened soldiers alike into a gripping, movie-like WWII combat experience played out at the height of the war through three Allied campaigns -- Russian, British and American. Gamers are immersed in the unfolding drama as they take on the roles of six brave soldiers fighting to survive grueling and intense battles, from the steps of Russia's famed Red Square to the harsh deserts of North Africa and onto the final and ultimate goal of Germany itself. Mixing exciting vehicle-based action with an array of intense infantry missions, players step into the boots of such outfits as Britain's Popski's Private Army as well as Gen. Patton's famed Third Army 761st "Black Panther" Tank Battalion.

The title features authentic sights and sounds, scores of soldiers and incredible special effects that engulf players into the thrilling single-player action. With four modes of play and new maps, Finest Hour also delivers heart-stopping team-based online multiplayer combat for up to 16 players on the PS2 and Xbox. Xbox owners can also enjoy full Xbox-Live support as well as system link gameplay.

Developed in conjunction with Spark, Call of Duty: Finest Hour is currently available in retail stores nationwide for a suggested retail price of $49.99 and carries a "T" ("Teen" -- Blood, Violence) rating by the ESRB.
