The Reviews Spotlight highlights a handful of articles from our community writers. Today, we take a look at two pieces of equipment that are designed to augment our gaming experiences. In addition, we have the newly released Brink and a third Spotlight on Dragon Age 2.

When Brink was announced in early 2009, developer Splash Damage was preaching the gospel to first-person-shooter fans. The title was to feature parkour-style movement, an integrated single player and multiplayer experience, and a deep character customization system. Christian’s review of the recently released title is a perfect complement to Ryan’s Bitmob Breakdown yesterday.
PDP Mortal Kombat Fight Stick: Not a Flawless Victory
By Michael Rousseau
Mortal Kombat sat comfortably atop the NPD sales charts for April, and that Metacritic score is looking pretty fresh. In light of its recent successs, I felt this article was appropriate. If you’re a die-hard fan you might be interested in Michael's review of the new Mortal Kombat Fight Stick by Performance Design Products. It’s a pricey piece of hardware, but if you dress up as Sub-Zero for Halloween each year, then you could probably care less, right?

You ever wonder why some players seem to have a slight edge on you in an online shooter? According to Christian, they might be wearing one of these nifty little Turtle Beach headsets. He describes them as a near-perfect piece of machinery, but check out the article for its one flaw.
Dragon Age 2 review
By Jake Burden
I’m going to Spotlight another Dragon Age 2 review to break the tie between the two we highlighted before. Previously, Matthew Anfuso described it as a glitch-ridden step back from Dragon Age: Origins. Louis Garcia, on the other hand, was tolerant of its shortcomings and focused most of his article on the story. The tiebreaker comes from Jake who enjoyed it so much that the flaws were barely worth mentioning.
