Star Wars video games: A visual history

We recap the last 27 years of video games based on George Lucas's enormously influential Star Wars franchise.

1994



TIE Fighter (PC) is the first Star Wars game that lets you play from the Empire's point of view. It also improves on the X-Wing formula and is more challenging, especially since three of the five Imperial fighters in the game lack shields. The expansion, Defender of the Empire, is the first game where Darth Vader flies as is your wingman. What makes Super Return of the Jedi (SNES) stand out is how it allows you to select your character before a level. The horrible Star Wars Arcade, a 3D shoot-em-up for the Sega Genesis' misguided 32X hardware extension, pales in comparison to the PC space sims.

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.
