Brute! - A graphic designer enters the tournament:

An old metapher says that all good things are 3. Let`s check out if Spinetheft`s 3rd work can profe that beeing true!

The pros:
Brute! supports matches up to 4 teamcolors, that`s a gigantic bonus! Skins supporting all gametypes are just more usefull than the others!
The teamcolors can be recognized easily due their brightness.
I like the idea behind the skins name. Unfortunately this has only been mentioned here (http://forums.beyondunreal.com/showthread.php?t=162451) at forums (thanks to our star reportress UTGirl (http://forums.beyondunreal.com/member.php?u=49291)):
Keine Mehrheit Für Die Mitleid is badly translated to No Pity For The Masses, and is an industrial band called KMFDM. BRUTE! Is the guy that does their cd covers, and is a cool song....and now a cyborg.

The cons:
The portait looks nice with the fonts, but unfortunately there can`t be seen as much as should be in game.
Some textures (for instance: teamcolors on pipes, legs and head) just look to soft and the bio doesn`t work correct and is too small too -> It would be cool if that "interview" above would have been inserted as bio or at least as text in the readme.

Words by reviewer:
Concerning all above facts I rate this skin as quite good with some flaws.
Fans of the Xan-model can add this one to their collection without any sorrows.
It`s nice how many Skins Spinetheft produces, and his current WIP (http://forums.beyondunreal.com/showthread.php?t=162583) looks great so far! But wait, we`ll talk about that later.
Keep it up Spinetheft!

Total Score: 5.5/10

The smiley on the chest is not fitting best on this skin.

A total score of 5/10 by me
