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.

'The Roots' (Xbox/PC) - Screens

by Judy on Oct. 28, 2004 @ 8:13 a.m. PDT

The Roots combines a classic RPG with dynamic gameplay and the fast paced plot characteristic of action-adventure games. The Roots has a complex, multi-threaded storyline and a vast world, which the player discovers whilst traveling with his party, fighting various monsters and living through great adventures.

The land of Lorath, which the game heroes traverse, is divided into over 24 regions. During their adventure players meet over 120 non-playing characters (NPC), with over 400 different items and 70 spells to fight off up to 100 monsters and human aggressors on over 70 battle arenas.

The player becomes involved in a mysterious world, which eventually develops into an adventure full of intrigue, unexpected events and sudden plot twists where an ancient evil has just started to awake.

Within the game's rich and dynamically interactive environment, interesting foreigners join our hero's quest by adding power and strength through offering new weapons, intellect and tools.

The Roots will offer two mini-games, including Ballooncraft Race – a fast paced, spectacular arcade game, which gives players the ability to fly in a sky race, and Trion, an original logic game.
