The most underrated video games of this generation

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

Red Faction: Guerrilla (Xbox 360, PS3, PC)

Red Faction: Guerrilla is a tricky fish to fry. There were flaws aplenty in this game, ranging from repetitive missions to uneven gameplay. It also suffered from one of the weakest storylines we've seen from a 'Triple A' adventure game. However, Red Faction: Guerrilla overcame these faults to become one of the most entertaining video games we've ever had the pleasure of playing. Its sophisticated physics engine and destructible environment were truly out of this world. If you've ever had a deep seated desire to level an entire city with a sledgehammer, this was the game to own.

Red Faction was something of a sleeper hit, with sales gradually building after a disappointing launch. So why are including it on our list? Because everybody seems to have forgot about its existence. When it came time to nominating their best games of 2009, most publications didn't even give it an honourable mention. Perhaps they had all been given memory-suppressants, like Quaid in Total Recall. Or maybe games journalists are just stupid.

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.
