"Rough launch, good game"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

The game launched to technical issues, and flack from those expecting something different from single player than what was presented.

For those who want a strong example of team/class/ob­jective based multiplayer this should hit the spot, if they are willing to put in time to get past the learning curve as well as the ability curve.

"Fast, chaotic, fun, manic"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Is this supposed to be a simulation of the chaos of real battle- I ask because I have no idea what's going on. There are people shooting, people yelling, people running all over the map (except where I am, next to the objective, you know, over here guys, guys…).

It reminds me of one of those games kids play with lots of yelling and squaling and laughing, where no-one seems to agree on the rules yet everyone is having a good time.

Initially I hated Brink. I stuck with it and learnt that the problem is not with the game, it is just that I am used to slow, sneaky, stealth shooters. Brink is about as far as you can get from slow and sneaky.

It has frenetic action, interesting visuals, cool accents, and enough of a story to hang the game on but no more. It has a class system. That means you have a role in the team but you can change this role very quickly if needed (if someone disconnects, for example).

It is a team game. Lone wolves are going to spend a lot of time trudging back from respawn points. Unfortunately, the AI team members are a bit flaky. Then again, so are the opposing team, so single-player isn't too bad.

However, single-player is not why you should buy this. If you want to play on your own, get Deus Ex (extremely highly recommended). This is a team shooter. Just like the noisy kids, you need to play with others to have the best fun.

Description

Brink is an immersive shooter that blends single-player, co-op, and multiplayer gameplay into one seamless experience, allowing you to develop your character across all modes of play. You decide the role you want to assume in the world of Brink as you fight to save yourself and mankind’s last refuge for humanity. Brink offers a compelling mix of dynamic battlefields, extensive customization options, and an innovative control system that will keep you coming back for more.

STORY: A man-made floating city called the Ark, made up of hundreds of separate floating islands, is on the brink of all-out civil war. Originally built as an experimental self-sufficient and 100% “green” habitat, the reported rapid rise of the Earth’s oceans has forced the Ark to become a refuge for humanity. Crammed with the original Ark founders, their descendants, as well as tens of thousands of refugees, the Ark exists in total isolation from the rest of the world. With 25 years of social unrest, the inhabitants of the Ark have reached their breaking point. It’s up to you to decide the future of the Ark and the human race.

Features:
  • Blurring the Lines Between Offline and Online - Advance your character’s development across every gameplay mode: single player, co-op, and multiplayer. Gain experience points that you can spend on customizing and upgrading your skills and abilities, designing an entirely unique look and feel for your character.
  • Groundbreaking Kinesthetics - Brink uses the familiar shooter controls that you’re used to, without frustrating, artificial constraints and takes advantage of a new feature: the SMART button. When you press the SMART button, the game dynamically evaluates where you’re trying to get to, and makes it happen. No need to perfectly time a jump or vault, the game knows what you want to do.
  • Context-Sensitive Goals and Rewards - Objectives, communications, mission generation, and inventory selection are all dynamically generated based on your role, your status, your location, your squad-mates, and the status of the battle in all gameplay modes. You’ll always know exactly where to go, what to do when you get there, and what your reward will be for success.
  • Virtual Texturing - Brink’s proprietary technology, Virtual Texturing, breaks new ground on current-gen consoles and PCs with an even greater focus on highly detailed characters, realistic environments, lighting, effects, and atmospherics. This competitive lead on the squad-combat genre helps thrust players into the gritty reality of the Ark's epic secluded arcology.
