WR: Brink (Xbox 360, PS3, PC)

  • 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.
  • 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,

If executed correctly, this could have been a much-needed breath of fresh air for first-person shooters, a genre that's grown stale as it's...

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

  • Conclusion: Brink embodies everything that people thought online play would be on a console. You've got solid leveling up system that adds another layer of depth to a game that didn't need it, as Splash Damage could have just dialed it in and created just another first-person shooter.
