Another Round of Brink Reviews!

May 11, 2011

We’ve got another round of great Brink reviews for you today, lead by the massive giant of a website that is MSNBC. Before we get into the round-up, we’d like to give a special shout-out to the guys over at Ars Technica – they’ve been spending a lot of hands-on time with the PC version of the game and have put together a comprehensive write-up of their impressions. If you want to find out more about the PC version of Brink and how it plays, it’s a highly recommended read.

Also, for those of you who are playing the game already, the chaps over at Official Xbox Magazine UK have put together a list of 15 ways to dominate in Brink. Some good stuff there, so be sure to check it out.
