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.

Activision's Spider-Man 2 and Tony Hawk's Underground 2 Remix will be among the first PSP titles to hit North American retail shelves and are currently available nationwide. The PSP will be released on March 24.

"We are excited to have two of our biggest brands available as launch titles for the PSP," said Kathy Vrabeck, president of Activision Publishing. "Designed to leverage the processing power of the new platform, Spider-Man 2 and Tony Hawk's Underground 2 Remix deliver deeper gameplay experiences and graphical advancements that take handheld gaming to the next level."

In Spider-Man 2 the game players must master new combo moves as they protect the city of Manhattan from the nefarious Doc Ock and other classic Marvel villains by swinging, jumping and wall-crawling through 19 new levels that extend beyond the film. Featuring an unprecedented depth of gameplay, players experience original storylines and battle through graphically rich 3D environments. The game, which is based on the blockbuster feature film from Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios, leverages the PSP's processing power to deliver the most realistic Spider-Man experience on a handheld platform.

Tony Hawk's Underground 2 Remix takes players on an all new skating blitzkrieg where they embark on the ultimate road trip from Tony Hawk's Underground 2 in addition to wreaking havoc in four never-before-seen city-levels -- Las Vegas, Atlanta, Kyoto and Santa Cruz -- that feature original goals, level changing events and unlockable characters. For the first time, players can live the Tony Hawk console gaming experience on a handheld device as they join either Tony Hawk or Bam Margera on a World Destruction Tour where they nail insane tricks with lightning speed or slow motion focus control, pull off mischievous pranks, and conquer sick terrain through 13 single-player levels, or face off against up to three friends in 10 wireless multiplayer games.

Tony Hawk's Underground 2 Remix, was developed by Shaba Games and is rated "T" (Teen -- with blood, crude humor, language, suggestive themes, use of alcohol and violence). Spider-Man 2 the game was developed by Vicarious Visions and is rated "T" (Teen -- with violence). The suggested retail price of both titles is $49.99.
