Don't buy it if you're expecting CoD.....it's not,
This review is from: Brink (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I bought this game with a totally open mind.....and am pleasantly surprised.....a couple of things you will have to know....
YES it may take longer than 5 mins to learn the controls....it's may surprise people that there are some games a bit more complicated than CoD
YES there are some problems with lag....so play with some mates against 'bots...no-one cares about Kill/Death or Win/Loss ratios here
YES you may get killed from above/behind where ever...well go slow and look first before doing your headless chicken impression...and wait for a medic
YES the AI team mates might be useless sometimes...AI team mates in most games have always been dumb
YES you may run out of ammo...hope one of you team mates is a soldier
YES there maybe a few problems with it...they seem to patch problems pretty quick......have people forgotten how bad WaW and MW2 were when they came out...??
I does seem to me that people buy FPS and expect them to be like CoD...and if they're not they get bad reviews...BRINK's a different type of game and will take you a good couple of hours before you start to get the hang of it....be patient.....if not go back to the headless chicken tactics of CoD...
P.S before people think I hate CoD......I don't...I think BOps is a damn good game......But I appreciate a different type of shooter sometimes

Totally agree here, however im more of a BF player than COD. Some people who are reviewing this game and are comparing it to COD. Its a different engine ffs, and also this is like Team Fortress/Monday. If you dont like Team Based games then go back to playing rush mode COD. :)

This is probably the best review on here. When I saw all the 1 star reviews I thought I'd better not waste my money, but when reading the reviews, they smack of people who only play CoD on rookie mode and then think that they and the game are awesome. (I am a big CoDMW fan by the way) People are complaining about the graphic, well Halo's graphics arent great but look how popular that is. Due to your review I will take the risk and buy it.

STOP COMPARING ALL FPS GAMES TO CoD! It is not, never has been and never will be the be-all-and-end-all of FPS gaming. Black Ops is an awful, poorly thought out, completely unoriginal, mess of a deathmatch game, it harks back to quake (at least quake was fun) with its awful spawning, tiny maps and weapons that feel like you're firing murray mints! Anything is more complicated than CoD, because CoD has absolutely no substance whatsoever...just shooting...and that gets boring pretty quick.
