About Judy

As WP's managing 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.

Raze's Hell is a darkly comic third-person shooter set in a fantasy world overrun by fiendishly cute creatures, Raze's Hell follows the exploits of Raze, a monstrous anti-hero who takes a no-holds-barred approach to stopping an onslaught of adorable characters and restore his planet to its naturally ugly state.

Raze's Hell puts players in the role of Raze, a hideous-looking hero, whose purpose is to stop an invasion of adorable characters (known as Kewletts) and restore his planet to its natural ugly state. Raze goes to war against the Kewletts and begins gaining the respect and assistance of some of the other inhabitants of his planet. As he grows in power, he works his way closer to the capital of Kewtopia to uncover the truth behind the enemy takeover.

"Sugar and spice doesn't make everything nice as Raze's Hell uncovers how one person's utopia is another's dystopia," said Ken Gold, vice president of Marketing for Majesco. "Raze's Hell is a unique tale that will satisfy both hardcore and casual gaming audiences who are looking for something truly unique in a video game."

Raze's Hell highlights include:

  • 20 massive mission-based levels set in surreal alien landscapes;
  • Full Xbox Live support for up to 10 players across a variety of game play modes which enables players to compete against each other online, and utilize voice chat and friends lists;
