This review is from: Brink (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
This game has had such bad press, mainly I believe from impatient gamers who expect every game to be the next best thing and a carbon copy of other big titles. This isn't CoD, it's not Battlefield, it's a team based shooter and although it's not perfect it's no where near as bad as the early reviewers of this game would have you believe.
This game requires your attention for an hour or so before you really start to enjoy it, you need to understand the mechanics of the game and you need to get out of the "one man army" frame of mind. This is a team based, objective driven FPS and as such you need to play as a team and work together to get through the levels, this is obvious but I believe it's something that was missed by the early reviewers of this title.
Graphically the game is pretty sweet, it's not as polished as some of the bigger titles out there, but saying that this game has PS2 graphics is a total injustice. The style of the game is excellent as is the level of customization.
I've seen criticism that everything is unlocked too early in the game but personally I don't see that as a bad thing. It sets a level playing field for everyone and you don't run the risk of having the fun sucked out of your gaming by players who aren't necessarily better but just have better weapons and armour...
I'd agree with other reviewers that say the online aspect of the game is much better than offline. It's a team based shooter so playing with real people is always going to be more fun / a better experience. Personally I've had more fun playing co-op than on the single player but the single player experience is still pretty good. You just need to be aware that your AI team mates might not be quite up to scratch.
Overall I think Brink is an excellent game, I'd love to see DLC that adds a few more maps and different game types in the future; I think I'll be playing this for a while.

Not impatient. Just don't think Brink's any good.
