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.

"Rome: Total War gives beginners and seasoned strategy gamers a chance to experience the epic battles and hand to hand combat of ancient Rome in a way that has never been seen before," states Kathy Vrabeck, president of Activision Publishing, Inc. "Players will be able to control the same troops that were once lead by mighty Generals such as Hannibal and Julius Caesar."

In Rome: Total War, players are transported to the battlefields of ancient history's greatest conflicts where they can control mighty armies of up to 10,000 fully polygonal, highly detailed, motion-captured warriors that appear on the screen at once. Gamers can direct vast armies led by history's most legendary generals including Julius Caesar and Hannibal, and must use a combination of brains and brawn to successfully recreate the Roman Empire.
