Activision to release Fast & Furious: Showdown on May 22

Game to coincide with the theatrical release of Fast & Furious 6

With the Fast & Furious 6 hitting cinemas on June 6, Activision has announced the release of its Fast & Furious: Showdown game.

The racing title will be coming to both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on May 22, ahead of the film’s June release.

Fast & Furious: Showdown will let players get behind the wheel of the exotic vehicles the franchise is known for.

The vehicles can be raced across various locations around the globe, either in single player or teaming up in two-player co-op.

In the game’s Challenge Mode, players can test their skill at completing objectives and compare challenge scores with friends and gamers via an online leader board.

Beyond driving fast cars, Fast & Furious: Showdown lets players switch between key roles from driver, gunman, tactician, to daredevil.

Cars can also be built and modified with a variety of upgrades and performance perks.

Following the success of 2011’s Fast Five, Fast & Furious 6 brings back actors Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson in a story that focuses on the drivers’ inability to return home and living on the run.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
