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...

Delivering a gripping playing experience, Second Sight combines an atmospheric, thriller narrative with paranormal psychic abilities, stealthy exploration and intense shooter action. Lead John Vattic, a former researcher, as he attempts to unravel a mystery that led to his imprisonment in a maximum security Medical Research Facility. As he makes his escape, Vattic discovers that he is empowered with amazing psychic abilities, capable of manipulating people and the surrounding environment.

John Vattic's quest to solve the military conspiracy behind his imprisonment has begun.

John Vattic awakens to find himself held captive in a medical facility and the subject of bizarre experimentation. He doesn't know his name, he can't remember his past, all he knows is that his only hope for survival is to escape and unravel the mystery that has led to his imprisonment. Second Sight introduces a unique dual-time narrative where flashbacks are experienced as fully playable episodes. Actions that take place in these flashbacks can alter events when Vattic returns to the present, creating an original and dynamic storyline structure.

"True to Free Radical form, Second Sight delivers a refreshing gaming experience with action-packed game play, a rich storyline and engaging characters," said Codemasters North American President Marc Bennett. "Whether relying on stealth, paranormal abilities, a high-powered arsenal or a combination of all three, Second Sight gives action buffs and thrill seekers freedom to choose how they want to experience the game."

Second Sight combines an atmospheric, psychological thriller narrative with stealth exploration and intense shooter action. Developed by Free Radical Design, the creators of TimeSplitters(TM), the game features 13 different weapons including pistols, SMGs, tranquilizer guns and a sniper rifle, all supplemented by paranormal powers. Locations in Second Sight span the globe from the Siberian tundra to the streets of New York City and an Asylum in Vermont.

Second Sight is rated T for Teen by the Entertainment Software Ratings Board and carries a suggested retail price of $39.99.
