BRINK

PUBLISHER: Bethesda Softworks
DEVELOPER: Splash Damage
RELEASE DATE: Fall 2010
PLATFORM: Games for Windows / Xbox 360 / PlayStation®3 system
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.

This is what you would call a game-designed-by-committee. It has a little bit of this and a little bit of that, things that may appeal to different tastes but do not always work together. And it feels more like a game designed with what the developers/publisher wanted it to do for them in mind rather than how it can be fun to play for the gamer.

IN AN ARK YOU ARE BOUND TO MEET ALL SORTS OF STRANGE ANIMALS
This is the game you would get if you were to cross Bioshock (story) with Borderlands (graphics & atmosphere) together with Team Fortress 2 and Mirror's Edge (gameplay). The story is quite original for a game, the parkour-style use of the environment works most of the time whereas the stylish shooting is slow in getting old.
You are asked to pick a side at the beginning but do not sweat it: not only it makes very little difference but you will be switching sides back and forth anyway!

ALTHOUGH SET ON A SHIP, THIS IS FAR FROM A PORT
And that is the good news. After a number of recent releases which were dumbed down to accommodate the (now 5-6 years old!) PS3 and Xbox-360, it was refreshing to see a game that was designed primarily for the PC. The controls work fine and the weapons are customizable. Now, if only you could actually shoot where you are aiming at!

THERE IS NO "I" IN TEAM. WELL, THERE IS NO "FUN" EITHER!

Plain and simple Brink is a multiplayer game that merely allows you to play its missions with bots instead of humans. That's the extend of the 'seamless integration'. As such this game offers little or nothing to those who (like myself) are not interested in multiplayer.

I cant comment on how much fun this is Multiplayer as i bought it assuming that it would be equally fun single and multi. But, if you are looking for a fun singleplayer experience avoid this game

I pre-ordered this game on my PS3 (and played it religiously until I got the yellow light of death and the whole thing packed in) and it's fair to say that I was initially disappointed with the lack of a substantial single-player game. However, what Brink does provide is perhaps the most strikingly beautiful, varied and satisfying multi-player FPS I've played.

The PC version allowed me to scale up textures, shadow detail and a couple of visual enhancements to surpass the console versions. Visually, Brink is second to none and features the most beautiful designs and bold colour schemes you'll encounter in a shooter.

The game requires you to take on different roles to undertake different tasks, in order to complete your missions as part of a team. When playing with other people supporting one another for a common goal, this is very satisfying. Conversely, if team mates decide that the best thing to do is attempt to snipe somewhere by themselves, it can quickly become frustrating.

With a raft of upgrades and customisations being unlocked through play, there is a satisfying amount of tweaking available to character and weaponry. A levelling-up system is also employed and allows players to purchase abilities as they progress.

I would say the main cons still remain as:
- P*** poor enemy AI. It really can render some missions undo-able if you have no humans on board.

- using the keyboard needs an extra hand. This is so much of an issue that I've purchased a gaming keyboard. Asides from up, down, left, right, keyboard commands are needed for: grenade, crouch, run, jump, interact, melee, lean right, lean left, and then up to 3 buttons for inventory items. It's as clumsy as it sounds and it will get you shot looking for the right key.

Brink is the story of a floating super-city that is fully self-sufficient. When the world's sea levels rise, inundating cities & nearly all of the terrain, the Ark becomes humanities last hope, attracting the survivors from nations the world over. Unfortunately, the Ark was only built for 50,000 inhabitants & the "guests" live on make-shift floating attachments to the Ark, meting out meagre supplies of water & food. But an uprising is brewing; the guests nearly outnumber the founders & a war is imminent, which side will you choose? Save the Ark or Escape the Ark?

Firstly, a little about my set-up: 2.66Ghz Intel Dual-Core, Nvidia 9600GT with 4gb RAM. The game runs like a dream, for something that is so aesthetically pleasing, it really doesn't require much resources, I am running it 1900x1200 resolution (28" screen) at full spec, with only the occasional tiny amount of slow-down in the largest rooms.

Graphics: Stunning, the stylised character models are incredible, you can literally customise every aspect of your avatar; facial-hair, scars, glasses, hair-cuts, tattoos, body-type, race, armour, shirts etc etc. They are all unlockable as you progress through the game.

Single-player: The story falls in two factions, The Security & The Resistance. Both of these stories progress to a climactic showdown that will decide the fate of the Ark. The story is good, but there is probably no more than 7 hours on each side and you do play the same maps from opposite perspectives (Once you have played offense in one stage, when you reach that stage in the other faction you play defence). Your character is XP and level based, you can choose to build your own skill-tree and specialise in your preferred class (Solider, Engineer, Operative or Medic).
