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.

In the futuristic world of "Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex," crime knows no limits. Gamers can face off against cyber-criminals as members of Section 9, an elite group of secret intelligence operatives tasked to keep technological terrorists at bay. Players must use "Major" Motoko Kusanagi's agility, her partner Batou's strength, the rookie Togusa's stealth, or Saito's sniper skills to unravel the mysteries of Berutarube.

“With its breathtaking graphics, compelling storyline, and incredible arsenal of futuristic weaponry, ‘Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex' will immerse players in a high-tech world punctuated by heart-pounding action,” said John Soller, Marketing Manager of Bandai America. “The game’s satisfying gameplay and amazing visuals are sure to delight ‘Ghost in the Shell’ fans while offering newcomers the perfect introduction to the cybernetic universe of ‘Major’ Kusanagi.”

“Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex” thrusts players in to the cyber-crime ridden streets of the Tohoku Autonomous Region, a metropolis lost between technology and humanity. As ‘Major’ Motoko Kusanagi, Section 9 officer Batou or Think Tank Tachikoma, players must utilize cutting-edge weaponry, bone-crushing martial arts and gravity-defying cybernetic agility to overcome a villainous menace and restore peace to the area. Players can also hack into fallen enemies and machinery to solve mission-specific puzzles and turn the tide of battle. The game’s futuristic storyline is told through over 20 minutes of meticulously crafted CGI cut-scenes that immerse the player in the title’s futuristic setting. “Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex” also features exciting multiplayer gameplay, allowing up to four players to engage in a wide variety of cooperative and competitive play modes across a selection of “Ghost in the Shell” locales.
