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.

Street Legal Racing: Redline, puts you in the seat of one of 8 stock import
cars challenging you to seek out random street races by day, earning money to
buy parts to trick out your car for the big drag at night where you can put it
all on the line. As time passes, you will slowly mold your vehicle into a
finely tuned racing machine, capable of taking anything on the streets, but it
wont be easy. There are many other racers out there with these same
aspirations, willing to do whatever it takes to get the checkered flag, and the
police don't have the same affinity for street racing as most, doing whatever
they can to break these dangerous races up. Do you have both the driving skill
and mechanical know-how to make it to the top?

Quick Race:
Hit the streets for a quick street race with a random car and at a random
location in the city.

Free Ride:
Freely explore the streets of the city with a random car.

Start a new street racing career. Begin with a pocket full of cash and go
shopping for a new car. Build your car up and work your way up the ranks of
the local street racing clubs. Do you have what it takes to win the Race of

Day Races:
During the day, driving around the city in search of other street racers is
your only means of finding competition. Once you find another racer, honking
your horn will bring up the challenge screen. Day races are less risky, you
can only race for prestige or money, though length and finishing point of each
race can be varied if you have a higher prestige rank than your opponent. To
adjust the finish point, click on the city map where you would like the race to
finish at.

Night Races:
At night, the local street racing club members gather all gather to put it all
on the line to climb club rankings and maybe even win a few pink slips. At
night, the race gathering location is represented by a flag on the minimap.
Once you arrive at the gathering spot, you can sit back and watch other club
members go at it or you can enter the racing and try to climb the club ranks,
and if you're feeling lucky, you can bet for pink slips as well! Night racese
always 1/4 mile drags.
