23 console games on the iPhone

A look at 26 different titles on the iPhone that gamers would consider "real" video games. Familiar franchises and known names that are a little more than the usual casual fare

8 Duke Nukem 3D

On August 10th, 2009, MachineWorks Northwest did what other developers called impossible and released a Duke Nukem game. In a somewhat hilarious and shameless move, the developers proved that everyone connected to the Duke Nukem franchise is permanently stuck in the '90s by posting quotes from 13-year-old reviews of the original PC game in their App Store description of the game. All fun-poking aside, we found that with a little customization (which the iPhone version of Duke allows in spades) the controls work quite well and the 1996-era FPS gameplay had us captured all over again. Duke Nukem 3D was a game with real character, and although Apple has censored some of the more offensive bits of the original game for publication on the App Store (those strippers just aren't quite the same with all that pixilation), that unique sense of character still shines through.

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.
