Brink (PlayStation 3)

 

Greatness is rarely achieved without ambition. Jumping into the battlefields of Brink, you get the immediate sense that you are playing an ambitious first-person shooter. Four interdependent soldier classes and three distinct body types combine to...

Brink is an interesting game. On paper, it sounds like a fantastic idea. A meeting of Team Fortress 2's class-based combat and the parkour of Mirror's Edge. If executed correctly, this could have been a much-needed breath of fresh air for first-person...

In the end, Brink is another of those games that we see every so often; the games that have incredible potential and truly unique ideas but fail so terribly in their implementation. This could have been a great game, it could've been a hit and it...

When Valve's now seminal co-operative shooter Left 4 Dead was released a few years ago, few could have predicted the impact it would have on the FPS genre. Team based shooters have been around since the genesis of these types of games but L4D brought a...

The finest team-shooter since Team Fortress 2. Need I say more?

Splash Damage offers up a solid class-based multiplayer experience with Brink, but the game falls short of being memorable.

Campaign: Save or Escape the Ark?

Brink Review

 

When I first heard about the concepts behind Splash Damage's promising Brink, I was intrigued: the SMART (Smooth Movement Across Rough Terrain) mechanic, which is akin to the free running in Mirror's Edge, a single-player campaign with 40,000 lines of...

With its near futuristic characters and settings, Brink's unique visual style comes off as almost an updated take on cult favorite film Mad Max. These visuals translate well throughout the game from the character creation tool right through to the...

Using the trainer, you'll gain be able to add time to a match or end it instantly, as well as being able to unlock all of the game's character creation items. I have to admit though, my absolute favorite part of the trainer has to be the save/load...

A fast, smooth game packs plenty of excitement.

Combat is consistently and gratifyingly chaotic, as the objective system organically builds choke points, and maps reward (or require) a good range of classes. Still, the game isn’t frustration-free: Bulk, unlike class, can’t be adjusted on the fly,...

Fast and fun multiplayer matches ; Deep character customization ; Switch classes during a match

Horrific AI in single-player ; Choke points in single-player ; Throwaway plot ; Some network issues (being ironed out) ; Too easy to reassign XP

When you do die in Brink, and you will often, a time limit is imposed for one of the designated medics to toss you a revival canister and be resurrected on the spot. Should the timer run out before a medic can reach you, it can be started again....

Brink Review

 

On the lively and intriguing battlefields of Brink, technical deficiencies and design issues can be as deadly as enemy soldiers.

Diverse array of class abilities ; Movement mechanics mix things up ; Stylish character customization ; Multiplayer matches can be intense and exciting

AI allies and enemies are erratic and unrealistic ; Online games suffer intermittent lag ; Movement inconsistency is frustrating ; Visual shortcomings make things look blurry ; Only eight core maps

Creating diverse types of movement is one of Brink's main ambitions, and to a certain degree, it succeeds. Performing a speedy escape or a daring infiltration with a light character is exhilarating, while mowing down a whole enemy squad as a heavy is...
