Force Unleashed: Fastest-selling Star Wars game of all time

The force is strong with this one -- at least at retail.

The force is strong with this one -- at least at retail.

The 1.5 million worldwide feat makes Star Wars: The Force Unleashed the fastest-selling Star Wars game of all time, says LucasArts. Granted, there have never been as many console owners as there are today, but the accomplishment is impressive, nonetheless, and proves publishers don't need a critical hit to make a commercial impact.

"The record-setting sales of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed shows the undiminished power of Star Wars and its popularity across all media types, including video games," said Darrell Rodriguez, president of LucasArts. "We're blown away by the response to the game."

Released on September 16, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed follows the events of Darth Vader's secret apprentice, a new character in the Star Wars universe that displaces Tie Fighters as easily as Luke Skywalker moves rocks.

GamePro critic Cameron Lewis praised the game's satisfying power-ups and beautiful graphics in his 3.5 star review while faulting the uneven combat and clunky controls.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
