The 10 best 16-Bit games ever!

Not content to let the past go peacefully, GamePro looks back at a generation of video games that started the first console war, brought arcade games back from the brink, and showed gamers what 3D graphics could do in a cartridge.

#10: Mortal Kombat II (GEN, SNES)

Original GamePro Score: 4.5 out of 5 Stars (GEN), 5 out of 5 Stars (SNES)

Claim To Fame: Mortal Kombat II brought even more blood to the fighting genre, and it also loosened Nintendo's censorship noose, finally letting the gore flow freely on the Super Nintendo.

Mortal Kombat definitely had something the competition didn't have in 1993, and that was gore. It had rivers full of human parts, bone and blood. When this sequel to the original hit fighter finally came to consoles, the buckets and barrels full of flesh, guts and other meaty chunks of the human body were all still there. Sure, the Genesis version had a few more Easter Eggs in stock and the SNES version had better graphics, but the ultra violent action looked just as deadly on any console.

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.
