LA Noire
5.00

1. LA Noire

While L.A. Noire may not appeal to everyone, those that are charmed by its mean streets will likely love every second of it. It's a bold, cinematic step forward in a genre that’s dying for innovation, and its implementation of ...

Portal 2 (PC)
5.00

2. Portal 2 (PC)

Even though it's more immersive and funnier than the original, the return of GlaDOS alone should be enough to convince you to play Portal 2.

Dynasty Warriors 7
5.00

3. Dynasty Warriors 7

These games are always a love-or-hate affair, but if you've ever enjoyed a Warriors game in its 11-odd year history, Dynasty Warriors 7 is a must buy.

Dead Space 2
5.00

4. Dead Space 2

No, it isn't as scary as the first, and if you're disappointed by that, you need to let it go because Dead Space 2 isn't about running from the Necromorph menace -- it's about confronting it and hopefully sending it ...

LittleBigPlanet 2
5.00

5. LittleBigPlanet 2

Sackboy's triumphant return packs the same engrossing brand of innovation and ingenuity that made its pioneering predecessor our Game of the Year for 2008. An expanded scale and a whole new treasure chest of tools and toys to conceptualise and ...
Review Date: 5th Jan., 2011
RRP: $ 109.95
Call of Duty: Black Ops
5.00

6. Call of Duty: Black Ops

It's difficult not to call Black Ops the 'best Call of Duty ever' simply because it's the ultimate refinement of the franchise formula. With an interesting single-player narrative and a multiplayer component brimming over with content, it's an easy recommendation ...

RRP: $ 120.00
Rock Band 3
5.00

7. Rock Band 3

The bar for music games has been irrefutably raised. Like magic, gamers can now be transformed into musicians... provided they don't run screaming for the hills at the first sight of a barre chord.
Review Date: 29th Oct., 2010
RRP: $ 99.95
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood
4.75

8. Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood

Ubisoft's third stab at the assassination genre is just as sleek and razor-sharp as ever. The addition of a multiplayer mode is also bloody good fun. Simply put, Ubisoft Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is killer!
Review Date: 19th Nov., 2010
RRP: $ 109.95

Gran Turismo 5
4.50

9. Gran Turismo 5

After an extremely long gestation period and seemingly endless delays, Gran Turismo 5 is finally here. Was it worth the wait? Here's where you can find out!
Review Date: 25th Nov., 2010
RRP: $ 119.95
Dance Central
4.50

10. Dance Central

Dance Central asks a lot of you as a player. Not only do you have to get up off your couch, somehow create six to eight feet of space in your living room for Kinect to register your coordinated flailing ...

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni

STYLISTIC Q572

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

Steph Mundell

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.

Andrew Mitsi

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.

Simon Harriott

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.
