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...

Composer Graeme Revell Signs on for 'Call of Duty 2' Musical Score

Call of Duty 2 lets players experience four individual soldier stories as they overcome insurmountable odds in multiple campaigns. Players have the freedom to follow each of the four storylines through for the ultimate character-driven experience, or they can engage in the historic battles chronologically for quick hitting action.

Revell will be making his videogame debut with the CoD2 titles, using a live orchestra to capture the emotion and intensity of being on the battlefields of some of World War II's most explosive conflicts.

Graeme Revell is a New Zealand native whose highly sought-after work is recognizable by its mixture of traditional cultural music, soaring vocals and natural sounds combined with his classical training. The award-winning composer was first recognized by the Australian Film Industry for the score of his freshman film, Dead Calm, when he earned an Australian Film Industry Award for Best Score. Since then he has created music for more than 80 films and television programs. In May of 2005, Revell was awarded the Richard Kirk Award at the BMI Film/TV Dinner, given annually to a composer for his outstanding work and contributions in motion picture and television music. Revell's additional credits include Blow, CSI: Miami, From Dusk Til Dawn, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Negotiator, Pitch Black, The Crow, The Crow: City of Angels and Walking Tall.

Call of Duty 2 is scheduled for release this fall for PC and the Xbox 360; Call of Duty 2: Big Red One is also slated for release this fall for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and Nintendo GameCube. Both games are currently rated "RP" (Rating Pending) by the ESRB.
