Counterstrike with a decent twistasbath | Nov. 5, 2013 | See all asbath's reviews »
I was never a big fan of Counterstrike style games, because of its severe simplicity. Yet I was drawn to more over-the-top style arena games like Unreal Tournament because it was given to you in a balls to the wall manner.
Brink takes both games and gives you a product that successfully gives you both, but in a package that could have used more refinement. While the game has a few rough edges, they're not enough for the sad demise it suffered. I felt t hat it was a good game that had a lot of potential.
The weapons system is pretty great - simply select a weapon and earn and attach certain mods to it that increase or change the way the weapon works. Select a class and use it to your advantage depending on your play style or strategy. It takes the CQC style maps of Counterstike, but gives you the ability to go on a bloodbath rampage like Unreal Tournament: death is not permanent nor a massive disadvantage to your team.
The maps and the single player campaign were pretty generic, but they were done well enough. Despite the generic FPS experience, I still think it did a great of job marrying the Counterstrike experience with the Unreal Tournament violence.

Brink was my favorite fps for PC, and was sadly crushed by a buggy release. Brink is a fast paced first person shooter combining many classic fps elements with a new free running play style. Both the single player and multiplayer are based upon the same story levels with teams of 9 fighting over objective based combat. However, stricken by many bad reviews (on the buggy release) this game has been left in the dark with very few players online.
A solid trySimao20 | Oct. 12, 2013 | See all Simao20's reviews »
Brink could have been so much more than what it was. A cel shaded first person shooter with parkour? Pretty cool, however I think this game would have been best suited for third person. The endless customization and parkour would look a lot better and easier to judge where you can jump and climb up to. The shooting itself is a bit lackluster , the bullets has very little impact and just take too long to kill enemies. The AI is quite awful as well, its stopping this game from being a pretty solid offline game but it ruins the experience and takes you out of the game. The story mode is 10 missions from 2 perspectives but the story itself feels very bare bones theres about a minute or 2 cut scene between each mission and thats it. One group wants off the ark while the others want to keep you on and dictate. Rather boring itself but a decent try
Bethesda.. COME ON!simodeso | Sept. 16, 2013 | See all simodeso's reviews »
This game has no sense.. it could be much much better! The idea at the beginning was fantastic.. but they put it in the wrong game. I can't figure out why single player exist in this game.. it's the multiplayer mode with bots.. No Sense. If you enjoy do the same thing again again and again you have to buy this game, you will find it as the best game of your life... But If you want to play the multiplayer mode, i haven't nothing to say, it's funny with a very nice customization of the character.
Great FPS game!drafek | Sept. 15, 2013 | See all drafek's reviews »
If you believe big reviewers this game is terrible, but that's because those reviews are made in the first week, and this game had alot of bugs on release. This game is a really fast FPS game, I really like it. Most of the bugs are gone, but there still are some. The graphics are done well. The single player is good, the story is a little hard to come in to, but it's alright. The multiplayer isn't that active a the moment, there are 1-3 servers full at night. Overal this game is worth getting, it's pretty cheap.

Great Shooter, especially if you love playing team-based shooters. The game offers the player a unique FPS experience, instead of crashing through the stages like normal FPS games, Brink requires the player to really take into account multi-player cooperation and the clearing of multiple objectives at the same time. The stages are not that easy, but with great graphics and fun (the combat in the game is fast and very chaotic).The game-play itself is very balanced, you get to choose from different classes to play as, each with its own unique traits that could help (especially if you are playing multi-player with friends, you might want to take different classes to complement each other) . Overall, a great game especially with friends. Get it.
