Brink brings some nice ideas to the first-person shooter genre, but fails to deliver on a number of levels. Much like Unreal Tournament, Brink doesn't really offer a substantial single-player experience, leaving you with an average shooter that's worth picking up only if you play online and are finished with Crysis 2 and the COD games. * The Good * There is a nice range of weapons and clothing that you gain access to as you play through the game which opens up a satisfying level of customisation while you're playing online. Alongside a healthy list of class abilities, and different body types opening up different options, the online multiplayer experience is actually pretty good. Being able to fully customise the role you play in combat is a lot of fun and keeps the game fresh when playing online. It's also worth noting that the developers have gone some way to fixing most of the issues that plagued Brink online at launch. The SMART movement mechanic is a nice addition and makes it easy and fun to dart around the maps. This additional level of movement does make for some interesting matches, opening up the maps in a novel way. While there are a few moments when SMART doesn't do quite what you expect, for the most part - it's a nice addition that gives Brink something unique. * The Mediocre * There are a number of ups and downs to the visual experience offered by Brink. While the graphics are generally pretty solid, there are some effects that can make it difficult to be at your best while in the thick of it. The audio is similarly fine - nothing spectacular, but I didn't feel cheated on that front either. * The Bad * The single player experience really doesn't have much to offer. Playing through the single player campaign feels very much like running through a sequence of bot-matches that are trying to emulate an online game. While this in itself isn't a terrible idea (it worked in Unreal Tournament), the AI is so appalling that the experience is pretty shabby. The AI doesn't emulate a human player very well at all and will often apply very little intelligence to what they do. * Conclusion * I think you'll get the most out of Brink if you are part of a group of gamers that often meet up online to blast away a few hours behind the keyboard (or game pad). I could see Brink being a lot of fun with a group of friends over the internet or at a LAN party. However, if you're looking for something to play offline, as a single player experience - I really would steer clear.
I have played Brink since yesterday and I am a little bit dissapointed. OK ... I must be honest I am not the shooter type. But the so praised story is really flat and only names the scenes where you are currently in. Beside that you have a massive equipment of weapons and skills you have to unlock to survive the fight between Order an Revolution ... And you can indivitualize yourself out of 15 million combinations. The whole Game has Multiplayer functionality. What a suprise for the shooter genre ... Nevertheless ... I played it and I recommend it. It is not a reinvention of the the shooter genre but it makes fun ... It will satisfy you like Battlefield BC2 and Crysis 2 ...
