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.

#7: Super Metroid (SNES)



Original GamePro Score: 5 out of 5 Stars

Claim To Fame: Super Metroid won tons of praise for its gameplay, graphics and presentation, while it also made use of the "auto-fill map" mechanic synonymous with the game's exploration-based action.

Super Metroid is one of those games that just doesn't get boring no matter how many years it's been since you last played it. That's why it's on the Nintendo Wii right now, just beckoning you to get sucked into the world of Zebes, where powerups are scatted everywhere like delicious candy. When Super Metroid finally made its debut on the Super Nintendo, it actually sold a lot better in America than Japan, which is still a bit confusing to us westerners, given the country's love for girls, robots, and girls blowing stuff up in robot suits. Who in the world could resist that blonde, bounty-hunting beauty?

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
