Don't know if that is the article you are looking for.  That
article really has nothing much to do with Brownian dynamics.
If you are looking for a review from van Gunsteren, you
probably want:

 van Gunsteren, W.F. and Berendsen, H.J.C., (1990) Angewandte
 Chemie Int. Ed. Engl. 29, 922-1023.
 Computer Simulation of Molecular Dynamics: Methodology,
 Applications and Perspectives in Chemistry.

also from Wilfred, you might want to check out what he wrote
for Current Opinion... In some ways this is better than a real
review, since it is mostly a consumers guide to other peoples
 van Gunsteren, W.F. (1993) Current Opinion in Structural
 Biology, 3, 277-281.
 Molecular Dynamics Studies of Proteins.

although looking at the original question, it might be
light on Brownian dynamics specifically if that is what you want.

There will be a bucketload of reviews from other people, these
are just two references that happen to be handy.
This posting is not merely my opinion.
It is the official position of my employer,
the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology.
