The most violent video games ever made

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

1. Dead Space

Dead Space was a complete dark horse last year. A sci-fi horror game set in deep space seemed like the oft-retreaded turf of steroidal space marines fighting off waves of demons (see the previously mentioned Doom). What was interesting is how expertly the whole effort comes together. It plays like a mash-up of the greatest moments from movies like Aliens and Event Horizon with you in the director's chair. It’s eerily beautiful to look at, freaky to experience, and fun to play. And bloody. Very, very bloody.
Gore factor: Five pints of blood with a side of arms and legs. Let’s put it this way: In order to successfully kill creatures, you must dismember them. As in, lop off their arms and legs with lasers. Even the audio is like an icy dagger when you hear the squishy stomp of boots in surround sound. Be genuinely afraid of the sequel. They are bound to try and out-gross themselves. We can't wait.

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.

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.
