4.0 out of 5 stars A great game... unfinished, 17 May 2011
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Brink (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Brink is a great game, the control interface is genuinely intuitive, the obstacle run function looks cool and works really well and I have spent many enjoyable hours playing it so far. The character personalisation is great... but they go overboard here about half the options they have would be plenty. But they are missing out on the online options, online you effectively play the campaign missions again either in co-op mode or versus human players, this grows a little weirisome. (The best mode IMHO is 'competition' which pits two smaller teams of humans against each other).

What is missing are the standard FPS online modes: Team Death Match, capture the hill etc. A note to all games developers: WE EXPECT THESE AS STANDARD! And really - how much additional coding time would it have taken to provide them?

Another slight niggle is how hard it is to find online games with a decent signal, the proportion with intollerable lag is about 50% (versus in my experience maybe 15% of COD or shadowrun games) but this may improve as we get more people playing it.

I hope Bethesda will provide us with a substantial update to enable more modes!
