The most underrated video games of this generation

17 current-gen video games that should have been bigger hits

4. Wet (Xbox 360, PS3)

Wet was always destined to become a poor man's Bayonetta. Both games feature balletic gunplay courtesy of a busty brunette in stilettos. Yet, while Bayonetta was heralded as one of the best action games of its generation, poor old Wet was left out to dry. (Do you see what we did there?)

While we concede that Wet lacks the verve and energy of its Japanese rival — and is a little too fond of QTEs — there's still a great game to be found here. Just ask 2K Games' Anthony Lawrence, who proclaimed it one of his favourite games of 2009 in a recent interview. (Incidentally, he was supposed to be talking about BioShock 2.) With its knowing nods to grindhouse cinema and relentless acrobatic combat, Wet was probably one of the most stylish games of 2009. In fact, we'll take its exploitative grit over Bayonetta's bubblegum insanity any day.

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.
