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.

Packed with action, Future Tactics is a turn-based tactical RPG that looks and feels like an action/platform game. Built around a highly complex turn-based battle engine, the adventure showcases a single-player Story Mode, as well as a two-player Battle Mode. Future Tactics will be released October 2004 on XBOX, PS2, Gamecube and PC. Read more for details and lots of new screens ...

The plot is set in the not too distant future, when Earth as we know it has succumbed to a race of extra-dimensional creatures. Now the final hope for restoring order to the planet rests on the shoulders of a young boy, his sister and a rag-tag assembly of unlikely warriors.

  • Two-player customizable battle mode lets gamers tweak handicaps, power-ups and victory conditions
  • Experience point system allows custom building of team members, allocating upgrades as players see fit
  • Boot Camp tutorial mode allows novice players to learn good tactics right away
