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...

Players now can take on their friends in a game of head-to-head football action with the launch of the new EA SPORTS branded two-player web game, All-Star Football Challenge from Electronic Arts. This free web football game brings a two-player mode and four new teams to the already popular All-Star Football series. Players can gear up for the competition at http://www.easports.com/free/home.jsp.

Adding to the existing 10-team lineup, All-Star Football Challenge brings the Los Angeles Dragons, Atlanta Aces, Pittsburgh Yellowjackets and the St. Louis Knights to the mix, giving players more choices in the showdown to prove who is king of the gridiron.

All-Star Football Challenge is a football fan's dream with its new 2-player feature. Written in Java and requiring no plug-ins, All-Star Football Challenge sports 14 teams each with unique strengths and player stats. From a top-down perspective, users pick the play and control the Quarterback to scramble, dish-off to the running back or pass to make their way to the end zone. On defense, players can call the shots as defensive coordinator; call the right plays and key match-ups to prevent the opponent from scoring. The more you play, the more your player can get promoted based on his performance and reach the coveted All-Star Gold status.
