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.

Hunted by Dahaka, an immortal incarnation of Fate seeking divine retribution, the Prince embarks upon a path of both carnage and mystery to defy his preordained death. His journey leads to the infernal core of a cursed island stronghold harboring mankind's greatest fears. Only through grim resolve, bitter defiance and the mastery of deadly new combat arts can the Prince rise to a new level of warriorship - and emerge from this ultimate trial with his life.

Developed by Ubisoft's award-winning Montreal studio, Prince of Persia: Warrior Within stars a transformed master warrior Prince on a perilous quest to unseal his mortal destiny. Hunted by a supernatural creature hell-bent on his destruction, the battle-weary but hardened Prince embarks upon a treacherous journey to a cursed island underworld to save his life. Featuring a darker storyline and the revolutionary Free-Form Fighting System, the game delivers nonstop, pulsing action up through the jaw-dropping end. Prince of Persia: Warrior Within is rated M ATURE for Blood and Gore, Intense Violence and Sexual Themes, and has an MSRP of $49.99.

"Prince of Persia: Warrior Within is already one of the most critically acclaimed games this year," said Ubisoft vice president of marketing Tony Kee, referring to the game's outstanding review scores from PSM Magazine (10 out of 10) and Official Xbox Magazine (9.6 out of 10). "Warrior Within builds on the momentum of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time by creating a darker, edgier experience. With more ferocious enemies, deadlier bosses, more treacherous environments and a new, innovative combat system, this beautiful masterpiece will rule the holiday season."
