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.

Urban culture is the focus of Crime Life: Gang Wars. Hence the theme of the game will be Hip Hop. Hip Hop is popular urban youth culture, closely associated with rap music and with the style and fashions of Afro-American inner-city residents.

Developed by Konami of Europe's Product Development, Crime Life: Gang Wars boasts a strong narrative that shows the dangers and strains associated with gang membership, and promotes a strong sense of morality via game elements inspired by classic gang movies, such as New Jack City, Boyz 'n the Hood and Menace to Society. The player must protect his own people from exploitation and abuse, and defend his crew from the violence and treachery that permeates the society he lives in. The game itself is set within Grand Central City, a sprawling metropolis where ruthless gangs are vying for power as the police struggle to contain them.

The game's stunning visuals and rich characterization truly bring Crime Life: Gang Wars alive, with each gang instantly recognizable via a large cast of anti-heroes. Reputation is everything, and for the player to survive he must establish himself as the toughest fighter against the most menacing gang members out there, all of whom are battling for street supremacy. The player will always feel like their next fight could finish them or make their name forever.
