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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Marmite FPS (But it's still legal in Denmark) 28 May 2011
By W. ASH
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First things first, Brink will certainly not appeal to everyone. This is because the First-Person-Shooter is in itself a sub-genre of the action game, yet the variety of them gives the FPS its own plethora of sub-genres. In relation to this, Brink is definitely a member of the team-based action fps. By this, Brink is a game that cannot be completed without a measure of teamwork involved, and the fast pace of the game makes it more arcade and action filled, rather than a strategic shooter like OpFlash (although strategy plays a key part in the game still).

The game is not completely like CoD at all, yet I would say that a CoD player could jump in this game than he/she could do easier than others. Similarly, Battlefield fans may like the game due to the interplay of classes, and the interactiveness of the maps. Lastly, players of TF2 may want to give this a look more than most, primarily due to the fact that the game is in fact like a newer (and in my opinion, a slightly better) Team Fortress 2. Despite this last part, Brink manages to maintain a feeling of originality.

Gameplay wise, I thought Brink was smooth and the game executes itself with a large degree of panache. The SMART system (think Assassin's Creed's free-running) is not without its flaws, as a ledge you may think you can reach actually turns out to be unreachable. However, on the whole, it works very well and allows you to feel as if the game's avatar is actually an extension of yourself. The multiplayer is where the main part of the game is at, and all of my matches had a full lobby of 16 players. Lag is uncommon, during the 9 or 10 matches I've played so far, I've experienced 1-2 seconds of lag about twice overall, which is hardly worrying.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great OBJ based FPS, but not without its flaws. 19 May 2011
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
You've probably heard by now: Brink is technically messy. Regardless of whether you're a fan of its objective bassed play, or whether the lack of more standard modes bores you, it cannot be denied that Brink was released far too soon in its development cycle.

However, what you should also be aware of is that Brink's dev team Splash Damage have a glowing reputation for supporting their products post launch. And while this is no excuse for releasing a game without proper care, focusing on what /has/ happened instead of what /is/ is only going to limit your potential enjoyment as a gamer.

And if you're tired of the lack of teamplay in your online FPSs, then chances are you /will/ enjoy Brink. Immensly.

Brink's gameplay is set up so that teamplay happens organically within a match, even if the players don't realise they're making a team effort. Xp is spread in a way that awards more for completing objectives and making team positive actions (heal, revive, ammo restock, dmg buffs, etc...) and less for killing. So those who play competitively within a team - and would usually imbalance things by attempting to buff their K/D instead of their team - will be directed toward actions that will help the game progress in a positive way.

The shooting mechanic is strong and very fun, and the guns all feel very different to fire. They also have differing statistics that greatly affect the situational advantage of each load-out. Couple this with an in depth customisation system (in the form of weapon attachments) and finding a setup that suits you really won't be a problem.

There are a few weapons that seem to be a little OP, but they're not to the point that using them will give you a game changing advantage.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is just amazing with your friends and would truly recommend getting this for anyone who wants a cheap fps game ,also this is a truly funny game with your mates if your trying to look for a good time get this game

the only bad thing is that there not many missions in the game only 8 new mission but there are two sides you can play the good side and the bad side but they are the same missions but just on other sides but there should be a dlc pack coming out soon hopefully.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great game, for me anyway 22 May 2011
By Lew.CFC
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game will not be everybody's cup of tea; some like deep story-based campaigns and some like highly active multiplayer with 8 v 8 games available 27/7. If your this sort of person, perhaps rent or flat out avoid this.

If however, you're like me and just want something fun to pick up and play on the rare occasion you get a go on it; it's ideal! There's no deep, complicated storyline to have to follow and remember for that sometimes week-long gaming gap (I hated Black Ops' campaign for that, I was completely lost plot-wise!) and the customisation is plenty enough to satisfy the needs of somebody who, really, just wants to sit down and play. Things are quickly unlocked, catering to the casual gamer and it's quite a shallow learning curve, especially since you can set it to Call of Duty controls.

Multiplayer I've only had a little go at, but it seems laggy at times and I didn't once play a game without some quite useless AI bots to make up the numbers, although it is a lot more fun to play missions, challenges or normal matches with some other humans. I particularly like the 'objective wheel' - it gives you some idea of what your team is up to and where the most help is needed.

Yes the game is very 'objective based' as opposed to being geared towards getting lots of kills; encouraging teamwork. But again, some will be let down by the fact that half your team or more could be made up by mindless bots whos AI is, quite frankly, terrible at times.

Graphics-wise, I like it. Cartoon mixed with realism works, and confirms for me that at the end of the day this is really just a bit of fun.

It's not going to attract the masses and it's not going to blow your CoD's and Killzones out of the water, but for the (very) casual gamer, it's spot on. I can dive straight in, shoot a bit, disarm a few bombs etc, no strings attached.
