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.

2005



The game based on Revenge of the Sith hits every platform, including Nintendo's new handheld, the Nintendo DS. Galaxies receives two expansions, the Trials of Obi-Wan and Rage of the Wookies (PC), based on elements of the new film. Republic Commando (Xbox, PC) is the franchise's first squad-based shooter and follows a group of elite clone troopers during the Clone Wars. Battlefront II (PS2, Xbox, PSP, PC) expands upon the large-scale infantry battles by adding dogfights in space. The most significant game this year is Lego Star Wars, the cute co-op platformer-puzzler that comes out of nowhere to charm kids and adults with its sometimes silly gameplay.

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.
