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?

Gladiator A.D.

For: Wii

In Ridley Scott's brutally-violent action film Gladiator, Russell Crowe's character Maximus gets to determine whether his battered and broken enemies in the arena get to live or die. Oh, and he must make this tough decision as bloodthirsty spectators in the stands shout whether or not they want him to show mercy. If he goes along with the crowd, he'll be favored by them. This aspect of Ancient Rome's vicious gladiatorial games is a big part of the upcoming Wii-exclusive fighting game Gladiator A.D. In the game you can either show pity to your weakened opponents or finish them off in a fashion that's similar to Mortal Kombat's trademark fatalities. The game is still in its infantile stages of development--it's not coming out until the end of 2010--but the game already looks pretty slick in action. --Patrick Shaw

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.

Steph Mundell


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
