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.

3 MAPS:
These new maps will be available for many of the game types that shipped with Ghost Recon 2, plus the 2 new game types included in this package.

  • Train Yard Interior: This level focuses gameplay exclusively in the complex train station section of the Train Yard map. Shadowed areas with heavy cover contrasted by unforgiving well-lit open terrain will provide for an intense close-quarters combat experience. This map is great for small Squad or Solo games.
  • Train Yard Forest: Battle it out in the heavily wooded nighttime setting of the exterior forest from the Train Yard map. Keep to the shadows or brave the well-lit roadway to gain the advantage over an unsuspecting enemy. This map is particularly well suited for squad gametypes or larger solo games.

Players will be able snipe approaching enemies from behind boulders or stealthily attack from tree-cover. This map is great for any size solo or squad gametype.

These modes are available for play on most of the multiplayer maps that shipped with Ghost Recon 2.

  • Recovery:
    In the Ghost Recon variant of the classic Capture the Flag gametype players will battle each other to capture and return a flag to their squad base. Each time the flag is secured at a team's base they will score 100 points and the flag will be re-set back in the center of the map. Respawns are enabled to further intense action experience. Solid Squad tactics and strategy are a must to dominate in this gametype.
  • Assassination:
    In the Assassination gametype squads are pitted against each other to defend or, alternatively, assassinate an AI officer. When the game starts one squad will be chosen to defend the officer while the other is charged will eliminating him. Scores are based off of how long the officer is kept alive or how long it takes to eliminate him. There are no respawns in this gametype so ever shot counts.
