Midway Unreal Tournament 3
- The game hearkens back to the superb style and pace of the classic Unreal Tournament, slick graphics and excellent PC performance
- New Warfare mode is clever, but we still miss the absent Assault mode, vehicles could use some more fine-tuning
If you're hoping for a game that will melt your eyes with cutting-edge graphics and stimulate your mind with a deep, highly customisable online experience, Call of Duty 4 is probably your game.

Sound-wise, UT3 offers up a solid selection of screams, moans, and subwoofer-rumbling explosions. In-game, the music fades into the background and rarely serves up the epic, teeth-gnashing battle anthems the series is known for. The voice acting is passable overall, and of course, no UT experience would ever be complete without the rumbling announcer who announces "Headshot!" and "Multi-kill!" with predictably satisfying results.
Rounding out the experience are a few other notable tweaks. First and foremost is the new single-player Campaign mode, which has an unfolding storyline and allows you to earn and play special "cards" that can boost your team's chances. They either help you directly, by endowing abilities like health regeneration or cripple the enemy team by removing several characters. These are all minor tweaks, but they help make UT 3 a more well-rounded single-player game than its predecessors. Of course, online is still where this game is really at and the game is an absolute blast. But considering the franchise's past, you already guessed that, didn't you?
Third time's a charm
So here's the real question: Does UT3 live up to the high bar set by its prestigious predecessors? On a gameplay level, absolutely but on a visual level, it doesn't leave as lasting an impression. If you were a fan of the previous games, particularly the first Unreal Tournament, then UT3 is a definite must-buy.
On the other hand, if you're hoping for a game that will melt your eyes with cutting-edge graphics and stimulate your mind with a deep, highly customisable online experience, Call of Duty 4 is probably your game. True online warriors, of course, will buy them both, which is what we recommend you do.

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