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

16 Need for Speed: Shift



While the Need for Speed series has struggled for years to find its place as a middle of the road product between realistic simulation racing games like Forza Motorsport and more arcade-style franchises like Burnout, the recently released Need for Speed: Shift really found its sweet spot, earning nearly universally positive reviews. The iPhone variant manages to maintain much of the complex, sim-like control scheme from the console version while simultaneously delivering some of the best 3D visuals on the App Store. It might take players a while to get used to the touch-to-brake and tilt steering controls, but a little time spent delving into the Career mode reveals a distinctly complete experience.

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.
