  • Conclusion: It's fair to say that a lot of thought has clearly gone into the development of Brink, but perhaps not all in the right areas. We really wanted to like it, as there are clearly some nice ideas here, but ultimately the game is far too messy to recommend. One to watch out for in the inevitable Steam sales.

  • Conclusion: Brink definitely provides a more involving FPS multiplayer experience than many other titles out there, reminding us a tad of other class based shooters like Team Fortress but with a far heavier emphasis on objectives. Although there is certainly nothing wrong with a thinking man’s Call of Duty , the inability to specify to only play with human opponents, underutilized parkour-style gameplay and disappointing visuals, drag this game down to mediocrity.
  • Pros: The fight over humanity’s last hope for survival is an interesting concept, Great looking art style is evident during character customization and cut scenes, Memorable soundtrack, Choosing and viewing objectives with the D-pad works very well
  • Cons: Very little story- or character development, In-game visuals are drab and blurry, Thin audio offering, Environments do not allow full use of parkour-style movement, Matchmaking does not allow you to specify to play with humans-only, With not enough people playing this anymore, regardless of price,

Taking Action To The Brink And Back

GIN
31 August 2011
  • Excerpt: The PlayStation Network outage was frustrating, and having a game where you really needed to play in multiplayer mode just intensified that feeling. Thankfully, the service was restored and all was well once again. But that's why our Brink review is a little late. We decided to take a look at it on the PS3. Brink is one such game that I highly recommend playing in multiplayer mode instead of solo. You are a part of a team and AI's as teammates is never a smart move.

BRINK Review

  • Excerpt: If you believe all the huffing and puffing from this oft-delayed game, Brink has managed to blend the single and multiplayer FPS into one glorious whole. It hasn't, but the end result is a shooter with the potential to be a whole lot more interesting. British studio Splash Damage, which grew to maturity off the back of the nineties modding scene, has managed to create a multiplayer-focused game that's ambitious, rewarding and - most importantly, perhaps - unique.

  • Summary: Splash Damage has had a decent career working on various id Software properties over the years, but this is the first time that the lads from Bromley ( respect ) have struck out with an original IP of their own. Brink has received a lot of attention for its unique visual style and energetic, run-and-gun gameplay. It's certainly beautiful, and the energy cannot be argued against. However, there's something ... strange about Brink .

Stepping Back From The Brink

  • Conclusion: I wanted Mirror's Edge with multiplayer, but instead I got Assault Mode from Unreal Tournament with more customization. That's not a bad thing, yet I can't help but feel disappointed. Bring friends if you want fun.

Brink Review

PlayStation Universe
4 June 2011
  • Summary: The parkour-style approach to this team-based shooter is not unique enough to overlook its lack of an authentic campaign, broken maps, and terrible A.I.
  • Pros: The original art style, The parkour S.M.A.R.T. system, The well-integrated online/offline play
  • Cons: The poor A.I., The maps and objectives create frustrating choke points, The lack of any genuine campaign or story

Brink Review

GamerNode
19 May 2011
  • Excerpt: In 2003, a small British game modding firm with a tradition in id Software space brought class-based multiplayer excitement to the world of Wolfenstein with the free expansion Enemy Territory . In 2011, that same firm made the same game out of a new IP. Eight years later, the stodgy head-bashing of Wolfenstein pervades Splash Damage’s high-profile, class-based, team-centric parkour shooter, Brink .
  • Pros: Robust customization, Good visuals, Parkour-style movement works well
  • Cons: Boring objectives in homogenous missions, Imbalanced classes, Minimal story
