The lights are on
If you're looking for the official Game Informer review of Splash Damage's latest multiplayer-intensive shooter, be patient. We want to test it in the wild before we make our final verdict.
In playing Brink over the past week, one thing has become abundantly clear – this is a multiplayer game first and foremost. The single-player experience is basically bot matches with the same objectives and maps as the multiplayer offerings. When reviewing a game of this nature, it's hard to accurately critique the play experience without spending a considerable amount of time with the maps and the community. The game is also due to receive a significant patch this week, and we're not comfortable handing down a verdict or talking about the technical performance until we experience the game as a consumer would if they purchased the game.
Look for our review in the coming days, and in the meantime please add your hands-on impressions in the comments section below.
