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.

God Of War makes powerful use of the darkly imaginative world of Ancient Greek mythology, where the realms of the mortal and the divine collide in a pervasive atmosphere of brute force and violence. Playing as Kratos, throughout the game players will wield double blades bound to his body by long chains, weapons symbolic of this vicious world to which he is bound and the fate from which he seeks to escape.

GOD OF WAR will help drive forward the action-adventure genre, and showcase the power of PlayStation®2, with its combination of visceral melee combat, dramatic storyline and stunning visuals, including amazingly vivid and artistic environments.

Featuring an hour of cinematic sequences and a deep combat system incorporating context-sensitive actions and an extensive range of combos, GOD OF WAR takes players through various environments that will have them fighting fierce enemies, swinging on ropes, scaling mountain cliffs, swimming through rivers and sliding down zip lines. The result is a unique and thrilling adventure through Greek mythology.
