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...

'Second Sight' Has Been Seen in North American Stores

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 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. As he makes his escape, Vattic discovers that he is empowered with amazing psionic abilities, capable of manipulating people and the surrounding environment. Providing a totally fresh dynamic, gameplay offers multiple approaches to completing levels either via stealth, dramatic gunplay, paranormal powers or a combination of all three.

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.

Second Sight is rated T for Teen by the Entertainment Software Ratings Board and carries a suggested retail price of $19.99. For more information visit the Second Sight web site.
