Under the radar games: the 29 best upcoming games you've never heard of

What about all the smaller games that are cool but aren't exactly household game brands?

C.O.P. The Recruit

For: DS

While open-world gameplay has become a staple in countless contemporary titles, only a handful of games have successfully executed a living, breathing sandbox capable of truly immersing the player. Ubisoft's latest effort looks to captivate and intrigue audiences by offering up one of the deepest real-time worlds to date in their newest adventure, C.O.P. The Recruit. Players fill the shoes of former street racer turned undercover agent Dan Miles as he takes on the criminal underbelly of New York City. "Expansive" is an understatement for this ambitious action title, as C.O.P. will not only feature an impressive, six square mile recreation of New York for players to explore, but will feature NO loading screens, not to mention gameplay that consistently runs at 60 FPS. Throw in about 60 missions, 30 vehicles and over 20 hours of gameplay and Ubisoft may very well have the next definitive open-world action game on their hands. --Will Herring

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.
