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.

Find out what happens when a fast-talking fish tells a great white lie in DreamWorks' Shark Tale video game, available now from Activision. Featuring a hip underwater culture and funky tunes, gamers immerse themselves in the world of Reef City as they step into the fins of Oscar, a bigger-than- life little fish that is constantly "fin-agling" his way out of trouble.

Players will dance, race, fight, explore and brave their way through more than 25 movie-inspired and game exclusive levels.

"DreamWorks' Shark Tale gives players an expanded view of Reef City where they can interact with their favorite movie characters and experience new adventures," said Kathy Vrabeck, president, Activision Publishing. "With dance pad compatibility and a cool, hip-hop soundtrack, players of all ages will be able to enjoy this game."

In the PlayStation 2 and Xbox versions of DreamWorks' Shark Tale, players can plug in a dance pad and truly get into the groove. Points earned while busting moves to the uniquely choreographed dance missions help Oscar make a name for himself and allow players to unlock special items. Whether getting funky in a dance challenge, or dodging traffic while careening through the bustling metropolis of Reef City, players will experience the vibe of the movie thanks to remixed and licensed R&B, funk, reggae and hip-hop music from top artists.

In DreamWorks' Shark Tale, Oscar is a little fish who dreams big, but his dreams land him in hot water when a great white lie turns him into an unlikely hero. At first, his fellow fish swallow Oscar's story hook, line and sinker and he is showered with fame and fortune. It's all going along swimmingly, until it starts to become clear that Oscar's tale about being the defender of the Reef is all wet. Oscar is finding out that being a hero comes at a Market Price when his lie threatens to make him the Catch of the Day. Now he has to tread water until he can get the scales to tip back in his favor again. DreamWorks' upcoming feature film, "Shark Tale," opens nationwide this October 1.

Working in conjunction with the DreamWorks animation team, DreamWorks' Shark Tale was developed for the console platforms by Edge of Reality, for the Game Boy Advance by Vicarious Visions and for the PC by Amaze Entertainment.

DreamWorks' Shark Tale for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, the Xbox® video game system from Microsoft and the Nintendo GameCube is available for a suggested retail price of $49.99. Both the Game Boy® Advance and PC versions feature unique game play with their own adventures and carry a suggested retail price of $29.99 each. The game has been rated "E" for Everyone by the ESRB.
