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.


'Miami Vice: The Game' (PS2/Xbox/PC) Gets Official Release Date

In Miami Vice The Game, players follow a storyline set just before the events of the film. Gamers must build up the nefarious reputation necessary to infiltrate the seedy underbelly of South Beach, and ultimately bring down the organization of an "untouchable" South American drug lord. Gamers can also choose to play as either Crockett or Tubbs, or team up via wireless to play each mission cooperatively.

Sun-baked beach houses, designer suits, golden sandy beaches, fast cars and faster, bikini clad women. Add a sprinkling of guns, crime, sex and drugs. Throw two cops into the mix, with an aim to clear it all up and you have a recipe for one of the most well known cop dramas on television. Davilex Games present one of the most action packed cop partnerships of all time, with the return of Crocket and Tubbs in "Miami Vice: The Game", launching November 26, available on PC (£19.99), PS2 (£19.99) and XBOX (£19.99).

Players can switch between detectives Crocket and Tubbs, in order to overcome challenges unique to their skill set. Crocket moves swift and silent, for more covert situations, while Tubbs deals with heavy situations, shotgun in hand. Utilizing an originally designed 'Partner AI System', unique team working game play enables orders to be given to partners for backup, covering fire, doors to be kicked in and arrests to be made.

The heat is on, as Crocket and Tubbs get involved in a gang power struggle, within the Miami underworld. The plot weaves a winding trail through the Miami high class, as the detectives 'stake out' and 'move in' on a luxurious beach house, classy art gallery and a regal hotel. It's not all glamour however, as the plot takes a turn to explore the dark and seedy side of Miami's criminal world.
