When bosses go bad: The worst video-game bosses of all time

We stick the boot into gaming’s worst bosses; from the laughably limp to unfairly hard.

Jinpachi Mishima — Tekken 5 (Namco, PlayStation 2, 2005)

Beat 'em up bosses are notorious for being big fat cheats, but Tekken 5’s Jinpachi Mishima is truly in a class of his own. The old geezer exploits every cheap trick in the book to snatch victory from your grasp, time and time again. Unless you get in quick with some well-timed combos, his unblockable barrage of attacks will make mincemeat of you in seconds. Our brutal showdowns with Jinpachi Mishima left us bleeding from every orifice, including our ears (courtesy of the wailing J-rock soundtrack). To this day, we still feel violated, and we pray daily for his removal from Tekken 6.

Jinpachi Mishima, we hate you like the Devil himself.

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.
