The 10 Weirdest Sports Games Ever

Mutants playing hockey? Leather fetishists on the links? These crazy games are the anti-Madden.

10- Bill Laimbeer's Combat Basketball (SNES)

Bill Laimbeer was kind of an a-hole when he used to play in the NBA. So it makes sense that the world's biggest basketball league in 2030 (which isn't the NBA, incidentally) would hire him as the commissioner. Bill then decides to abolish any civility the game had left and creates a basketball league in which mines and bombs take precedence over passing skillfully and strategically setting picks. Surprisingly, even though his age at the time of the game would be 73, he's still the best player in the game. Then again, Charles Barkley is supposed to save the world 11 years later at the age of 78, so maybe these NBA players know the secret to longevity.

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.

Steph Mundell


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
