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.

Miami Vice: The Game (PSP)

Vivendi Games' Sierra Entertainment has announced that Miami Vice The Game is now available in retail stores nationwide. Set in present-day Miami, the thrilling third-person action shooter is inspired by the Universal Pictures crime drama, Miami Vice, in theaters July 28. Players will go deep undercover as narcotic officers Sonny Crockett and Ricardo Tubbs in the notorious world of Miami Vice -- a place where badges don't count.

Developed by UK-based Rebellion, Miami Vice The Game is available exclusively for the PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system. The development of the game comes through an agreement with Universal Studios Consumer Products Group.

"By allowing players to go dangerously undercover as Crockett and Tubbs in the rich, glamorous and decadent world of Miami Vice, as well as providing game design elements that maximize the technology of the PSP system including cutting-edge motion capture, highly-detailed environments, and lighting effects inspired by the film, Miami Vice The Game delivers a truly authentic Miami Vice experience that will appeal to fans and action gamers," said Cindy Cook, Chief Strategy and Marketing Officer for Vivendi Games.

In Miami Vice The Game, players follow a storyline set just before the events of the film. Gamers must build up the nefarious reputation necessary to infiltrate the seedy underbelly of South Beach, and ultimately bring down the organization of an "untouchable" South American drug lord. Gamers can also choose to play as either Crockett or Tubbs, or team up via wireless to play each action-packed mission cooperatively. Armed with intelligence from informants and utilizing hacking skills, players will take on the enemy in varied locations with an impressive array of weapons including high-speed chases through Miami's treacherous waterways while engaging in boat-to-boat shootouts!

Miami Vice The Game is currently available for the PSP system for a suggested retail price of $39.99, with an ESRB "M" for Mature rating.
