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.

16. 'Ghostwire: Tokyo' (PS5/PC)

GhostWire: Tokyo is an action-adventure where you face off against dangerous spirits and fight to purge Tokyo of evil as you unravel the mystery behind a mass disappearance.

Chris Barnes: As a staunch defender of the original Evil Within and an avid fan of Evil Within 2, I was willing to accept the fact that any new IP by Tango Gameworks would catch my attention. What I was not prepared for was a first-person horror game with incredibly fluid-looking animations. Tango has surpassed my expectations, and I cannot wait to get my hands on its upcoming PS5 exclusive, Ghostwire: Tokyo.

Redmond Carolipio: The people who made the underrated (IMO) Evil Within games now want to try their hand at a paranormal, psychic action game in the first person. Why not? From an aesthetic standpoint, instead of the typical first-person shooter stuff, we're getting more martial arts and action focused around the player's hands with Ghostwire: Tokyo. I also expect freaky, weird horror to at least make a few passing appearances. It's Tango Gameworks, after all.

Chris "Atom" DeAngelus: An interesting take on the first-person genre, Ghostwire: Tokyo reminds me a lot of the old Dreamcast game, Maken X. Players are sent into Tokyo, where the entire city seems to have vanished while yokai and ghostly monsters have taken over. It's up to the player to wipe them out. Using a combination of melee combat and magical spells, it seems to have a different feel from most gun-based first-person titles. The combat we've seen so far looks awfully cool, and the monsters look suitably terrifying.
