Review: Brink
by Jim Sterling

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.

In fact, strange might not even begin to describe it.

Brink hits North America tomorrow, and Bethesda's put out a final trailer in anticipation. It bigs up the game's civil war premise, and features loads of shooting and jumping. That's all you need, really.  We've been pl...

Brink, the upcoming first-person shooter from Enemy Territory developer Splash Damage, is bringing a novel approach to a crowded market. It incorporates elements from a variety of popular genres, but does so in a way that makes it seem like a unique, multifaceted experience.

I had the opportunity to play Brink at a recent press event in New York. Based on the hour that I spent with the game, I think it’s going to be one of the standout shooters of the year.

Running through Brink with Splash Damage

[Editors note: Despite how hard cameraman and tech-guy Roy Malcomber tried we had several technology fails and apologise for sound quality]. Brink is awesome and I could spend all day trying to explain the game to you but that would be pointless. So, I am going to let the CEO of Splash Damage, Paul Wedgewood, do it instead. Enjoy!
