  • Brink is a first-person shooter with a focus on parkour-style movement. Online multiplayer servers hold up to 16 players; players can play cooperatively or competitively, or against artificially intelligent bots.

    Lets jump, run or slide into this video review.



    Key Game Features:

  • SMART (Smooth Movement Across Random Terrain) system allows a new freedom of movement.
  • Complete cooperative game featuring class based gameplay.
  • A cinematic style soundtrack.
  • Hundreds of collectible items and unlockable weapons and clothing items.
  • Let’s score the game:

    Graphics: 7

    A strong stylised look is what makes Brink shine out against any other shooter each character has his own style and this is pushed even further by the level of available character customisation. When it comes down to the game itself I think that maybe a little more time could have been spent polishing things up even after the initial first day release patch that was supposed to cure all graphical ills brink still feels a little dated, but with a very unique look it does well.

    Gameplay: 7

    The single player portion of brink is simply put an online match against Bots, and this can be a somewhat lack lustre affair that tires very quickly, BUT wait Brink is an online co-op game that’s meant to be played online and when this happens it all changes as the human element brings with it a ton of fun that very few online titles have matched.

    Sound: 7

    Although you wont be singing the theme tune to Brink you will feel the intensity of all the battles rise as does the soundtrack, it makes a good companion while taking down wave after wave of enemy.

    OVERALL FUN FACTOR: 7

    Despite its flaws of which there are many and these may sway the more hardcore audience to give Brink a miss, for all out online action with a fresh return to some more old school elements Brink has given us a taste of what old school shooters should be like in todays next-gen era.

      Brink was a great idea that needed more time to work on with a better engine for the graphics like id tech 5 or the UNREAL ENGINE 3 and the AI  portion with a more gameplay elements this game would be amazing but still it have a really nice art design style with colorful environments and a good story that worked great and together this game is still fun especially in online and co ops. thanks for the review  :)

      Brink reminds me of Shadowrun. Like Jouini said: Great idea, not-so-great execution.
