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.

Today Ubisoft announced that Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Chaos Theory for the Nintendo DS has gone gold and will be in stores June 28. For the first time, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell is available on a handheld console in full 3D.

Taking full advantage of Nintendo DS' two screens and Touch Screen technology, the game offers an immersive experience through the single-player campaign and also includes the innovative Cooperative multiplayer and Versus modes.

Key features include:

  • All the new moves and gadgets of the console versions released in March 2005, but with the addition of the exclusive SWAT TURN
  • The Touch Screen technology allows players to manage the inventory, choose between three vision modes and maneuver the camera
  • The Wireless Communication of the Nintendo DS will be intensely used for the multiplayer modes:
    • Cooperative mode for two players with five levels to explore. Each player can choose between two Shadownet expertises: Assault or Hacker
    • Versus mode for two to four players with seven maps available. The Versus mode places you in a war of Shadownet Spies against Argus Mercenaries. While Spies try to hack computer devices to steal important information, Mercenaries must patrol and guard these stations.
