The first person shooter is a tough nut to crack. Since the PC, First Person shooters have been stealing players away from other genres and slowly but surely, the genre has developed and grown in intuitive and clever ways. We’ve taken the bad with the incredibly good and currently, we sit within a FPS limbo. With the Call of Duty franchise wooing over a majority of FPS players, this genre deadzone is literally enough to make or break new series. But is now the time for something new to take in the limelight?

God I certainly do hope so. As groundbreaking as COD 4 was when it hit our consoles, the multiplayer, four games on has become stale with little real advancements and whilst the ‘don’t fix what ain’t broke’ saying would normally apply. Sometime down the line, minor changes and fannying about with over priced map packs just isn’t going to cut it.

Enter Brink, a title from UK developer Splash Damage, known for titles such as; Enemy Territories Quake Wars and Doom 3. Brink brings an objective heavy, class based style of game play with some seriously creative parkour elements. Top that off with a unique visual style and some serious customisation and we could be onto a winner here.
