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 is ready and able in this new trailer

Brink is well on the way to looking like my idea of the perfect online shooter. The character customization, the range of abilities, and the focus on wearing badass masks speaks to me on every level. In other words -- Brink ...

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].
