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.

'Shade: Wrath of Angels' - Screens & Trailer

Shade: Wrath of Angels boasts 30 levels of intense action, featuring environments from the modern day, Middle-Ages, Ancient Egypt and the mysterious Shadowland. The player takes on the role of a secretive ex-military mercenary, who receives a letter from his brother asking to meet him in an old Eastern European town. Once there the player finds the town strangely quiet - until he discovers dead bodies, frighten soldiers and scientists running away from the town. It is at this point that the player first meets a sinister shadow being that offers him help and guidance for his adventure. As well as his advice, the shadow figure gives the player his servant - the Demon, which the gamer can morph into at anytime and whose physical strength and magic attacks will play an important part of the adventure.

Many features of the game have changed since its last public showing - the combat system has been altered to involve more close combat fighting, with the removal of all the firearms (excluding the Hero's trusted sidearm) and the inclusion of mêlée weapons such as swords, maces and torches. The Demon's abilities have been increased to include several powerful magic spells that can be upgraded in the magic shops throughout the game - trading "Angel Tears" that the player can collect throughout his journey.

Shade: Wrath of Angels will take about 30 hours to complete - but also has multiple endings depending on your actions as you play the game - so it also has high replay value as the gamer has different options to chose from.
