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.

Seth — Street Fighter 4 (Capcom, Arcades, 2009)

We could have filled this whole list with beat 'em bosses, but Seth from Street Fighter 4 is definitely one of the all time worst. Like Jinpachi Mishima from Tekken 5, he is a shameless cheat who habitually employs cheap tricks and ridiculous combos to gain the upper hand. He also nicks all the other characters' best moves — a ploy we’ve hated ever since Shang Tsung did it in Mortal Kombat. So he’s not just annoyingly hard, but also unoriginal. To this day, we’ve only managed to beat the bugger a handful of times. [We should point out that Chris is rubbish at Street Fighter and always has been. The only move he can pull off is Blanka’s electric attack. — Ed.]

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.
