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...

19. 'Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier' (PS3/X360/PC)

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier features cutting-edge technology, prototype high-tech weaponry, state-of-the-art single-player and multiplayer modes, while going beyond the core Ghost Recon franchise and deliver a fresh gameplay experience, with an unparalleled level of quality that excites long-time fans and newcomers alike.

Mark Buckingham: Ghost Recon and I go back a long way; I've been a fan of the series since the beginning (and the original Rainbow Six, Eagle Watch, and Rogue Spear before that). This series was once about stealth and long-range takedowns, but I was miffed at first about the adoption of noisy, bone-rattling CQB when GRAW debuted. However, the story kept me interested, and the near-future battlefield tech shown off in GRAW 1 and 2 kept me coming back for more. The multiplayer in those games could have been better, so here's hoping that this is the one that gets it all right.


Redmond Carolipio: I love the Tom Clancy shooters because they require thought, and the Clancy world is held together with an undercurrent of realism. Every Ghost Recon game I've ever played featured a tactical, simmering intensity, but now we get to see how it plays out when a bit of future vision is involved. The military geek in me awaits.


Tony "OUberLord" Mitera: I was a sucker for Ghost Recon back in the day, and to be fair, I've only recently begun to take any personal interest in Future Soldier. The Vegas series was fantastic despite its departure from the first-person viewpoint to instead opt for the third person, which surprised me just as much as it did anyone else. The series has always placed an emphasis on strategy, so one can only hope that hallmark carries through. I'm also fairly sure that Rainier is going to need somebody to cover his ass, and he will probably assign that task to me.
