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.Read more ›
Lastly, I've removed Steam from my PC and will never load a Steam based game again, but that's another subject.
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.Read more ›
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.

It was fun, but I would never pay full price for it. The gimmicks are fun and the customization/atmosphere is cool, but there are much better games out there. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Neev
Not much going on with multiplayer with servers dead for some time now. Regardless, this game was what I thought to be an artistic masterpiece in it's time. Read morePublished 15 months ago by AbracadabrA
