GENRE: First Person Shooter
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?
• 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.
Top Customer Reviews
The first online game I joined had my internet stuttering more than Gareth Gates did when he was about to get jiggy with Jordan. It was the laggiest Live experience I've ever had. My controller remained in my hands rather than disembowelled all over my floorboards, but it was touch and go.
Backed out and completed a couple of the challenges alone, which open up new weapons and perks, and they were quite enjoyable, especially the 3 Parkour ones, which played very much like Mirror's Edge. But unlike the Spec Op Missions on COD: MW2, they were over almost before they'd begun. Bit like Gareth and Jordan, I'd imagine.
Back to a MP game. This time it was mostly lag-free but did suffer a judder or two every 5 minutes. Now played the MP for over 12 hours. There have been a few issues:-
1. The enemy AI must have been created with the sperm of Zeus as they have an uncanny ability to require loads of shooting before they go down. Opposingly, they have the targeting skills of Robin Hood and are able to hit you once and kill you and on occasion shoot round corners, through thick walls and so on. It does get a bit annoying. Levelling up hasn't made a huge amount of difference,
2. The friendly AI is thick. For an objective based MP experience, the AI have an utter inability to grasp the basic goals. Medics take as much notice of your prone body as Charlie Sheen does of his psychiatrist.
3. At present the SMART system should add the word a-r-s-e to the end of it. Some game designer had a bright idea that has failed to come to fruition as it's a bit of a gimmick on some maps.Read more ›
Story line is intriging but could invole the player a bit more.
The 'what if' missions are interesting to play.
The SMART movement system makes it easy to move around and over objects.
It can be a pain when your are trying to get to an mission objective and your team are either falling behind or going the opposite direction and your are left alone to fend for your self, even when one of the six laws of BRINK states 'stay close to your team mates a team of lone wolves will always lose.' I cannot emphasise how true this is!
It's annoying when you have to play the game all the way through and you still haven't unlocked all the faction costumes.
To sum up - a cheap game to pass the time waiting for the rain to stop and I can go outside.
I want to say now, this is pretty damn original. Think mirrors edge, crossed with Battlefield.
So in theory, one of the best things ever created.
Well, yes and no.
I'll start with the cons, which are not rare.
-Online, needs a bit of work on a few areas, connections aren't brilliant, and a lot of games you will lag.
-A party mode to make it easier to play with friends would be appreciated.
-Not a massive focus on story.
And now with the Pros.
-SMART system works a treat, once you get used to it. Took me a few private matches by myself to get this nailed, but now, I can leap away from any sticky situation I find myself in with relative ease. This isn't overpowered, you still can get an ass full of lead if you miss a ledge, or against a few too many bad guys.
- the customization is good. I thought, even though it boasts this feature, people will still stick to the same design (the hoodie and baggy jeans) but fortuanatly few people look the same, especially with the body types.
- Firefights are really fun, stand still and you get your head cut in half, strafe and you will probably start to see a light at the end of the tunnel. But free run, whilst blasting away at a group can rack up kills, and it's a breath the cool refreshing air into the rapidly boring FPS genre.
-Hundreds of ways to do a mission. I saw a review complaining about choke points... he evidently plays CoD. Get an engineer in your group and he can build shortcuts and new paths around the side, get an operative to hack and open doors, which can be used to flank, or just sneak to their objective faster.Read more ›
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
