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.

A mysterious buyer has ordered 40 stolen high performance cars. Tanner wants to know who the buyer is, and he intends to stop the deal going through; but he is always one step away from his cover being blown, and time is running out.

TAKING IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL
Following the massively successful console version, Driv3r for the personal computer features an all new level exclusive to the PC release. The level is set between 'Gators Yacht' and 'Trapped' and is called 'The Hit'. It features an assassination attempt on Tanner and a tense, hot pursuit which makes the most of Miami's waterfront location and the variety of vehicles it calls for. The PC version will also see additions in other areas including for the first time the full 12 minute long DRIV3R 'making of' movie.

Atari has worked very closely with NVIDIA on DRIV3R for the PC to ensure the game is fully tested and tailored to support NVIDIA graphics cards, with NVIDIA providing additional after-sales technical support.
