The most violent video games ever made

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

14. Smash TV


Back in the classic arcade gaming days, there was a frantic shooting game called Robotron: 2084. You shot at colorful graphics on a simple black background; when you destroyed something, poof — it was gone in a series of triangles and pretty colors. In 1990, that idea got reinvented as another quarter-gobbler — Smash TV, the world's bloodiest show. That hyperkinetic video game had players running around dodging bullets in order to win "Big Money! Big Prizes!"
Gore factor: Two pints of blood. Body parts flew everywhere and after a while it was hard to figure out whose limb was whose. Mr. Shrapnel would voluntarily explode, showering you with debris, while Mutoid Man — the half man, half tank — would try to run you over. And, of course, if you accidentally stepped on a land mine, a jumble of arms and legs would launch up at the screen.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
