Is GTA IV the Best Video Game of All Time?

We present the case for and against

Why GTA IV is not-so-great #2: It’s too dark!

And we don’t mean in a moralistic sense. In a presumed attempt to go for a 'grittier' feel, GTA IV lacks many of the bright, primary-coloured playgrounds that characterised previous games in the series (most notably Grand Theft Auto: Vice City). Instead, the majority of the urban environment is depicted in decayed greys and browns. While this may suit the game’s theme and the nature of its city, it makes the game difficult to play, especially at night. Even with the brightness level on our TV ramped up, we sometimes found it difficult to navigate building interiors and alleyways. Bring back some of those pastels!

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

Anthony Grifoni


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.

Andrew Mitsi


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.
