The most violent video games ever made

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

5. Fallout (series)

You didn't really think that a game based in post-apocalyptic America was going to come off as squeaky-clean, did you? The whole Fallout series was violent — you just couldn't see as much in the original games when you reduced enemies to a fine, red mist. But when the series hit 3D in 2008, Fallout 3's huge open world, over-the-top violence, and inky black humor catapulted it on to many lists as one of the best of last year.
Gore factor: Five pints of blood. Firing your weapon into a crowd and watching chunks fly in this game actually makes you laugh and cringe at the same time. A steam-powered bolt-launcher emits a cute whistle sound while it rips people apart. A nuke launcher dings as if the turkey is done cooking. And one of the special abilities you earn in the game is "Bloody Mess." I'll let you figure out the rest. One interesting side note, though: Like Grand Theft Auto IV, Fallout 3 didn't force you to use violence. You can actually get fairly far in the game without having to resort to violence all the time. As if.

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.
