Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Arcade Attack
If Arcade Attack is any indication, the turtles have lost whatever magic they used to possess
- Game seems to use the darker comic books as its source of inspiration, no cheesy one-liners
- Not a good fit on this system, it's very short and very easy, you'll be bored by level two
Let's face it: good Ninja Turtles games are a dime a dozen. For every Turtle in Time, there's a movie cash-in lurking around the corner. While TMNT: Arcade Attack may not be the worst game out there, it's certainly not the best.

There are few grizzled, old gamers who don't look back fondly at the beat-'em-ups of yore. If you cite classics such as Streets of Rage and Double Dragon as favorites, you shouldn't be any stranger to roaming the streets as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Throughout the years, the Ninja Turtles have been well-represented in the beat-'em-up genre, with both solid and crappy titles under their belts. So with the franchise's 25th anniversary approaching, fans and gamers alike are ready to see if the heroes-in-a-half-shell still got it.
If Arcade Attack is any indication, the turtles have lost whatever magic they used to possess. This DS title suffers from a myriad of problems, not the least of which is its failure to utilise any of the DS's unique features. You never use the touch-stylus and the second screen is used only to keep score. And thanks to the use of only one screen, the action is often tough on the eyes.
The game is also easy, and you will have no problem rushing through the eight skimpy levels in a matter of hours. Add in the simplistic combat that becomes repetitious very quickly, level designs devoid of creativity and the fact that you can't level up or gain new moves and you have one disaster worth skipping. The final nail in the coffin: no April O'Neal.

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.
