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.

Regardless of review I already have it pre-ordered.
glad you guys didnt blow your load too fast like ign did. even if it only gets a 5 or 6 at least yall took the time to do it right. cant wait to try it out tonorrow.
This... is a weird article. But cool, I hope you get a good handle on the title. I understand reviewing it now would be like reviewing UT3 after just having played the "campaign" and before any of the patches came out.
Im glad that you guys are giving it some time and waiting for the patch to come out before you give the final verdict on the game. Cause as a previous post had said IGN gave it a 6 which i feel is a little under rated but they may have it right i have myself not played the game yet
I'm loving brink so far
I just hope it doesn't get boring because I could see it happening
Overall I'm having a really great time right now
Thanks game informer for the best reviews in the business
