23 console games on the iPhone

A look at 26 different titles on the iPhone that gamers would consider "real" video games. Familiar franchises and known names that are a little more than the usual casual fare

17 Pac-Man Championship Edition

When Pac-Man C.E. was released on Xbox Live Arcade in mid-2007, it was celebrated as the revival that fans had been waiting for since Ms. Pac-Man. Developed by the creator of Pac-Man, Toru Iwatani, Championship Edition features a distinctively futuristic art direction and level progression focused more on getting as many points as possible within a time limit than finishing multiple individual levels like in the original. The iPhone adaptation of Pac-Man C.E. is essentially identical to the Xbox Live Arcade version, although in-game DLC must be purchased to "unlock" the full XBLA build of the game. While one might expect that a game like Pac-Man would demand physical button inputs in order to feel responsive, Namco has devised a dual-joystick control setup that works surprisingly well. That control scheme is selectable amongst three total control options, but it's the one that we recommend for serious players.

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.
