The most violent video games ever made

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

6. Gears of War (series)

Lock Michael Bay, Jerry Bruckheimer, and James Cameron in a room and tell them to make a summer blockbuster-caliber sci-fi action game. Epic Games beat them to it. The Gears of War series has done a gruesome job of bringing the cave-dwelling Locust menace to life in this over-the-shoulder shooting gallery. And the series, though maturing by trying to develop an honest-to-God plot with pathos, is still a bloody affair.
Gore factor: Three pints of blood, extra chunky. Two words: Chainsaw Bayonet. The most ingenious invention of "modern" warfare is also one of the most effective — and satisfying — ways to mow through the hordes. Strap a chainsaw to the end of an automatic rifle. By the time you hear it's grinding roar and see the camera zoom in, you know something messed up is about to go down.

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.
