The most violent video games ever made

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

8. Soldier of Fortune

In an age of many PC-based first-person shooter games, Soldier of Fortune was...just another one. You're a mercenary hunting down neo-Nazi terrorists in possession of nuclear devices. Fairly standard fare, right? Well, the main reason anyone bought this game was because of the brutal GHOUL technology that developer Raven Software built into the Quake II engine.
Gore factor: Three pints of blood, separated. The big deal about the GHOUL system is that it allowed you to isolate over 20 different parts of the body. Shoot someone in the leg, and they limp. A shotgun blast will tear that limb right off. It was grimly fascinating for the time — to say the least. Ah, what one does in the name of entertainment.

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.
