BRINK

PUBLISHER: Bethesda Softworks
DEVELOPER: Splash Damage
ANTICIPATED RELEASE DATE: Q1 2011
PLATFORMS: Xbox 360™ / PLAYSTATION®3 /
Games for Windows
GENRE: First-Person Shooter

STORY:

Brink takes place on the Ark, a man-made floating city that 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 home to not only the original founders and their descendants but also to thousands of refugees. With tensions between the two groups growing, Security and Resistance forces are locked in a heated battle for control of the Ark. Which side will you choose?

KEY FEATURES:

  • Not Just Another Hero – Brink’s advanced player customization offers a near-endless combination of looks for your character – allowing for the appearance of your character to be truly unique. As you progress through the game and acquire more experience, you’ll have even more opportunities for customization.

  • Two Sides to Every Story – Choose to fight through the single player campaign as either a member of the Resistance or the Security and then take your same character online to play cooperatively or competitively against other players.

  • Blurring the Lines – Take your unique character online at any time you choose! Brink allows you to seamlessly move between your single player campaign, co-op with friends, and intense multiplayer action. Multiplayer takes the story online where you can play with up to seven other people (or AI characters) cooperatively as you take on the opposing faction or with up to 16 players competitively.

  • Play SMART – Brink uses the familiar shooter controls that you’re used to, without frustrating, artificial constraints and adds 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. Whether you’re a seasoned FPS veteran or someone just getting started, you’ll be able to make more intelligent decisions during the fast-paced action with SMART.

  • Context-Sensitive Goals and Rewards - Objectives, communications, missions, and inventory selection are all dynamically generated based on your role, your condition, your location, your squad-mates, and the overall 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Try it before you buy it May 16, 2011
By Drew
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I had the fortune of never paying attention to--or really noticing, for the most part--Brink as it was under development. Sure, I read one or two summaries, but I never had some high and mighty expectations for the game. So, come its release, I was neither bummed nor overjoyed at its less than stellar response by many people. Nevertheless, I was intrigued by its elements, and I found it somewhat alluring, in a way.

I had, years ago, played the game Shadowrun, which is basically the same old song and dance: class-based multiplayer game focused on objectives that didn't have enough bang for the buck. Maybe it was the fact that I never paid $60 for the game, instead opting to rent it, but I found Shadowrun to be an absolute blast to play--and I did so many times over. As for the popular game Team Fortress 2, I never really did get into it. I don't know if it was the far-too hectic combat, or the complete lack of skill that I had upon my first few playthroughs, but I found it very hard to jump in without frustration and annoyance. As for the game Call of Duty, I thoroughly enjoyed the first Modern Warfare, was severely disappointed by the stagnation of the second, and realized the series had reached ennui by Black Ops; still, though, the gameplay was worth of being applauded.

So a week after Brink's release, I had found myself still very interested in its concept. I have always loved customization in games. I feel much more connected to my character, and feel as though I am creating something of my own personal hero that can be anything I want him to be. Brink, having something of a combination between all of these good games with other good extras thrown in, was quickly gaining height on my wish list.

Brink is the first FPS I have ever played where every single game is different..... I have never played a boring game. I highly recommend this game to everyone!!! Make sure your computer can actually run it though (if you get if for computer) because steam has a no refund policy.

5.0 out of 5 stars BRINK is a Great Game! August 4, 2011
Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Like many people, I was very skeptical about picking this game up due to all of the negative reviews that it had been getting. I decided to take the plunge when I saw the game on Amazon's Daily Deals for $20 and I'm very glad that I did. Now that it's been a few months since it's original release, there have been several updates that have helped smooth out many of the glitches that early adopters of this game experienced.

The online gameplay is very smooth, contrary to many of the earlier reviews, because the developers have made tweaks to optimize bandwidth. If I had purchased this game at its release and experienced many of the early issues (namely the online lag and tearing), I'm sure I would have ragged on the game a bit too, but it's no longer an issue. I've read a lot of complaints about tearing during the cut scenes but I haven't seen any of this

The overall gameplay is great too. The balance between the various classes and weapons combinations help to make sure that one particular group doesn't completely trample over the others. The objectives throughout the levels help to ensure this by requiring them to be completed by each of the different classes. The ability to customize characters is also a big plus in my book. 95% of the changes are purely aesthetic, but the other 5% (namely the body type) can have drastic effects on a characters ability to carry weapons of differing sizes and their ability to navigate over various obstacles.

The maps are beautiful and offer quite a bit of variety when it comes to navigating to a specific point. There are several routes to the different objectives which allow for enemies to be flanked if they're not paying attention to the different openings.

3.0 out of 5 stars It needs more July 5, 2011
By Matthew
Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game took FPS to a whole new level, but they just couldn't deliver. I loved this game because of it's concept, and it really is a great alternative to others like it(teamwork-based shooters).
A few gripes that I had about the game:

They should have included a larger package of customization and variety for weapons(including add-ons) and characters
They should have worked on the AI a lot more for better fluidity of the game.
They also need better guns. I wasn't really blown away by any of the guns, and it pretty much boils down to one good gun and the rest of them are way unbalanced.
The Character creation and outfit management needs more choice and needs to be filled to the brim with outfit choices.

I hope they do go back to the drawing board with this as their canvas and expand upon it to make something even bigger next time. I may get back into if they include some much needed(and hopefully cheap-- if not free) DLC that will liven it up a bit along with some patches to ease the AI experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars Counter-Strike meets Mirror's Edge May 20, 2011
By Mike B
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm going to skip through the negatives quickly.

Yes, just like almost every single game I've played in the last 15 years; this one has it's fair share of bugs/glitches/imbalances. Also, just like almost every single game I've played in the last 15 years of my life those bugs will be patched and fixed by the game's developers.

Now onto the positives!

Brink is the first multiplayer FPS I've ever played, where things like bunny-hopping, no-scoping, grenade spamming, and shooting through walls have absolutely no place. That right there is a huge plus to me. In this game it's all about how you choose to help your team complete the many objectives contained in each map. (That's right multiple objectives in a single map. No more planting the bomb and shooting people in the head until it blows up.)

The creator of DE_Dust worked on this game and it shows. The choke-points are incredibly brutal. They force you to use tactics with your teammates to win maps. If you're the type that likes to show up on a server and immediately show their superiority by owning every enemy player by yourself like some kind of Rambo meets Dirty Harry avenger from hell then THIS IS NOT THE GAME FOR YOU.

This game requires you to put your ego aside and work as a team, even when not playing with clan-mates or good friends. You must work as a team even when casually playing in a Pub with people you've never met.

This is a game that people will either love or hate. There's really no middle ground. That's why you see such mixed reviews out there. Some reviewers totally dug the game and some totally hated it.

It's not Counter-Strike, but it gives me the feeling that I used to get back when CS was new and innovative.
