Worst game character makeovers of all time

We name the fugliest game character makeovers of all time!

#1: Bomberman

"Evil Bomberman" introduced in Bomberman: Act Zero

In 2006, the creators of the almost profanely bad Bomberman: Act Zero woke up and decided to take their charming little mouthless hero in a white helmet and transform him into terrifying metallic killer with huge Freddy Krueger-like claws. Yeah, great idea, right?

But you know what? It's a good thing Bomberman: Act Zero tanked and didn't inspire a trend. What would be next, a Mafioso Mario packing a silenced .22? It may seem far fetched, but make no mistake, the day evil Bomberman was born was a dark day in gaming, and like Dr. Frankenstein bringing his hideous creation to life only to discover the enormity of his mistake, so was the day Bomberman's evil doppelganger was born.

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.

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.

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.
