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.

#2: Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting (SNES)

Original GamePro Score: N/A

Claim To Fame: SFII Turbo on the SNES bought even more speed to an already excellent formula of fisticuffs, plus it added new moves and color sets for Capcom fighters to brawl over.

It's easy to think how innocent gamers once were. Back in 1993, the thought of playing as the same character in a fighting game was a pipe dream. But with this bigger, badder Street Fighter, you could finally settle once and for all who played a better Ryu. Street Fighter II Turbo hit homes pretty quickly after the arcade version did, and the ability to crank the speed all the way up to a whopping four stars made following your own character deliciously impossible. If you wanted to boast about reflexes, SFII Turbo was the place to run your fingers and your mouth, and it still holds up today as a tournament-worthy title.

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.
