nice looking new game, that seems to have the all terrain movement capabilities of Assassin's Creed and Mirror's edge, with the action/combat of a shooter!
"Brink introduces a revolutionary interpretive movement system we call SMART (Smooth Movement Across Random Terrain). SMART dynamically evaluates where you're trying to get to or what you're trying to do, and makes it happen: vaulting, mantling, climbing, sliding, and even seeking cover. This means you make the tactical decisions of where to move and the route to take, the system helps you do it in the coolest way possible." –official site
