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.

Offering over 40 fully-licensed and faithfully replicated club and national teams, players can tinker with tactics, formation, line-up and training before each match. During the game, Pro Rugby Manager 2 displays each bone-crunching tackle, each heart-in-mouth drop kick and every maddening pass and dash to the try-line in such glorious, motion-captured detail, it rivals anything TV coverage can offer.

The 2D tactical display has been developed in collaboration with the Heineken Cup winning rugby star Francois Duboisset who has provided Pro Rugby Manager 2 developers Cyanide with valuable insights into the intricacies of the game and how these could be most accurately represented on screen. « The new bird's eye view give a better overall view of the game, » says Duboisset « You get a better understanding of the ebb & flow of real rugby."

The whole interface has been designed to provide a more dynamic and intuitive experience when taking control of a team on match day. Of course it is still down to the preference of the individual manager whether they choose the new style tactical view or continue to take advantage of Pro Rugby Manager 2's 3D action mode with photo realistic stadiums and recognisable stars from clubs and countries around the world.

"With Pro Rugby Manager 2 we were determined to provide fans of the original game with a deeper, more flexible experience," says Leo Zullo, Marketing Director, Digital Jesters. "The implementation of the new 2D tactical display helps tie the realistic management and the dramatic match action together like never before, allowing each gamer a greater choice in how they choose to manage their favourite club or country"

Pro Rugby Manager 2 is due for release on the 25 th February 2005 priced £34.99.
