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.

#3: Chrono Trigger (SNES)

Original GamePro Score: 5 out of 5 Stars

Claim To Fame: Chrono Trigger was a masterpiece among a dense field of Japanese RPGs, crafted by the "Dream Team" of Sakaguchi, Horii, Toriyama, Aoki, Kato, Mitsuda and Uematsu.

With a rich story, deep gameplay and memorable characters, Chrono Trigger's success was largely thanks to its high-profile team of creators, some of the best minds behind Squaresoft's Final Fantasy series and Enix's Dragon Quests. To the grand majority of RPG fans, this is the Holy Grail of the Super Nintendo, proof that once upon a time, Japanese RPGs could do no wrong. Chrono Trigger went on to sell like crazy in both Japan and America, and is considered by many to be one of the undusputed best role-playing games in history, and not just on the SNES system (it hasn't done too shabby on the Nintendo DS, either).

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.
