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 Suikoden series has always delivered an enriched gameplay experience as well as added replay value through innovative battle sequences and unique storyline twists," said Dennis Lee, product manager at Konami Digital Entertainment - America. "Suikoden IV continues the gameplay tradition with players interacting with hundreds of characters in vast and rich 3D environments as they battle new adversaries, explore new territories and embark on unforgettable adventures."

A deep RPG story awaits gamers who are ready for an epic 3D adventure. For the first time in the series' history, Suikoden IV will feature recorded voice-overs for many of the characters during the cut-scenes in the game. Navigating through numerous mysterious islands, players will collect party members and build a home base for their crew. The drama escalates as the characters engage in heated one-on-one duels, group battles with countless island enemies, and through some strategic ship battles. The new dynamic camera system in Suikoden IV heats up the action by presenting the conflicts from multiple angles. With dozens of playable characters including ones returning from previous adventures, and the return of numerous fun mini-games such as fishing, dice and card games, RPG fans will have their hands full in Suikoden IV.

Suikoden IV is inspired by an actual Chinese tale in which 108 ordinary people come together from different backgrounds to do great things. In Suikoden IV, players step into the shoes of a young hero who obtains the Rune of Punishment and follows his path into a strange and fascinating world filled with huge ships, beautiful islands and vast oceans.

The Suikoden series launched in 1995 in Japan and was released in the U.S. on the PlayStation in December of 1996. Instantly hailed as one of the most innovative RPGs, Suikoden delivered a unique battle system, an intriguing storyline with numerous plot twists and multiple endings to provide a fun experience for all RPG fans. Since its debut, the Suikoden series has received numerous industry accolades for being one of the top RPGs of all time.
