The most violent video games ever made

Ready for a bloody good time? We dissect some of the goriest video games ever made.

9. God of War (series)

Hacking and slashing is nothing new to video games. Neither is seeing a squirt of Type AB every now and then. God of War is one of those classic action game series goosed with great graphics. The part that really has people's hackles up are the few moments when the game slows down and the camera sweeps in as Sony's Spartan hero goes in for the kill.
Gore factor: Three pints of blood. Button-pressing timed sequences. Sounds innocent enough right? But as you're following those precise on-screen directions (like tapping "X" at the exact moment), you are forcefully tearing the wings off a harpie. Or driving a cleaver through some mythical creature's skull. Point is, the game slows down for a second almost to say, "check out how bloody this game is about to get." If this part of the God of War games got removed, people would have almost nothing to complain about — but it wouldn't be nearly as much fun.

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.
