Brink is a game that deserves a chance, and those with a penchant for the multiplayer shooter owe it to themselves to give it a look.

Sounds good, but the core idea sounds a little like TF2. I probably would pick this up - if LA Noire wasn't out next week and, you know PSN was back.

Do you think that this will be one of those games that loses it's install base quick, so picking this up at a later date would be a bad thing as everyone already has a few level 20 characters / are just better than most new players that will join?

A game to pick up when Duke Nukem Forever is completely 100%! I can see this dropping down in price rather quickly due to LA Noire, because everybody is talking about it with a positive vibe.

Good read Martin, and I do like the exp system for this game. The game is online dominated from the set-go, so strong sales on the 360 version than that of the PS3.

I must say, the xp system is the best I've ever used. It does away with counting points for a kill, you rack up score for each direct bullet you hit with.

Sounds pretty good and yeah the xp system sounds really refreshing and how do you say...satisfying?

I like that idea - but aye, I can see the FPS-focused crowd quickly moving on if not played in the immediate week following release.

Don't think I'll bother - just waiting, as with Wido, for the Duke formy online shooting fix.

Having read both this and IGN's review this is one of the few times where I haven't been able to get a grasp on whether I'd enjoy the game through the reviews. IGN's review contradicts this one quite a lot. Obviously, I would always place more weight on Martin's review than any of the journalists from IGN; I just find it strange.

Definitely a game I might play after picking it up cheap or renting it but with LA Noire out next Friday I'll be passing. The review makes it sound quite promising though.

Does this mean sniper's rank up at a slower rate?

Presumably only if all they ever do is shoot people. Which is why every class has a distinct and specific role other than shooting people. And thats also assuming that all bullets landed earn the same amount of xp.
