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.

"Sly 2: Band of Thieves is a platforming masterpiece with addictive gameplay that is sophisticated yet accessible for PlayStation 2 fans of all ages" said Grady Hunt, senior producer, product development, Sony Computer Entertainment America. "We are thrilled to have this title as part of this year's premier PlayStation 2 holiday lineup as Sucker Punch has once again provided players with an innovative experience that looks and plays like an animated feature."

Word is out that Interpol has excavated the robotic remains of Clockwerk -- Sly's nemesis and sworn enemy of the Cooper clan. Sly and his gang discover the parts of Clockwerk are missing, and embark on a quest to ensure Clockwerk is never reassembled. The journey takes Sly and his crew to the far reaches of the globe, including Paris, Prague, India, the Canadian Wilderness and more, each with unique and diverse landscapes and environments all waiting to be explored. The deep and expansive story is filled with deceit, surprising plot twists and an exciting romantic triangle that will leave players wanting more.

Sly 2: Band of Thieves already has been receiving much critical-acclaim from the gaming press, recently receiving an Editors Choice Award. "It's amazing what two years can do for a development company and it's clear from playing through Sly 2: Band of Thieves that the folks at Sucker Punch Studios have been putting their heart and soul into creating a game that is both fun and entertaining at the same time, said Ed Lewis, editor, "The amount of creativity that is packed into the different quests and the various characters is nothing short of amazing and it all combines to form an incredibly fun adventure."

Sly 2: Band of Thieves blends many gameplay elements together, including stealth, thievery, platform adventure, combat, strategy and exploration. Incorporating a creative new approach to team play, Sly and his crew are all playable and must work together to plan and pull off a series of big heists. With enhanced move sets, including pick-pocketing, vent crawls, rooftop chases and stealth attacks, Sly 2: Band of Thieves delivers a true thieving experience as players explore the open environments and must think on their feet to survive.

To prepare for this holiday season, Sly 2: Band of Thieves is receiving full marketing support in the following categories to extend consumer awareness for this genre-breaking title.
