i payed full price for it and although it feels realyy incomplete the multiplayer seems pretty fun so i feel $69.95 (australian) so roughly half normal price would seem about right

20 bucks Australian. It's far inferior to TF2, but brand new so it gets a price boost.

Full price for it is ridiculous, however. Triple the number of maps and add different modes beyond the objective based stuff, and maybe we'd talk.

But I have zero interest in the game, so I guess I should include that.

It's not about the price. Some say it would be better if it was a $15 XBLA game, but I've never seen the point of buying those either. You can get Halo ODST or some other older FPS that while maybe not as good as the most recent game in the series, people are still playing and it costs less than the XBLA game and is in most ways a better game. I guess some people just have to play whatever is the newest game and they have to play it from day one. It's kind of like choosing a two year old Mercedes or a brand new Kia. I wouldn't buy the Kia.

I paid $45.99 (USD) on Steam and I am getting my money's worth. The downside is that I feel I need to buy a wired 360 control to get the most out of the game.

I would consider it at a heavily discounted price (like 10-20 USD) when I have nothing else to play.

About $20, that's what I'd expect to pay for the equivalent as a download-only release. That said, I'm not terribly interested in picking it up anyway so if it went for $20 tomorrow I'd probably pass. If it were in some crazy Steam sale for $5 I'd probably pick it up in a heartbeat.

By the way, Aussie game prices are pretty crazy, but if you're paying $130-140 for a new release game you should probably start shopping somewhere else.

I might get it once it's $25-30 (I live in Europe, but my AMERICAN keyboard only speaks in dollars)

Paid full price on Steam and don't really have a problem with that...then again I don't have to ask my mom for an allowance so that might have something to do with it.

If someone gave me a code for a free download, I probably couldn't be bothered to redeem and download it.

€5. But even then I might not buy it, because everything I've read and seen is terrible. And everytime people defend a game with "you aren't playing it right!" it's a really really bad sign(how to play a FPS wrong is beyond me).

I paid $60.
In retrospect $30 would have put it in the "happily" region.

I would pay ZERO because the game SUCKS! TROLOLOLOL.

Seriously though, I put down $40 and that is right at the top of what I was willing to pay. I'd say $30 is fair.

I think it's worth about £15-£20 so far, it's pretty light on content, I've only played about 4 hours so far but I already feel like I've seen pretty much everything :/

Any price for this game is a waste. Due to the online not working, recommending this game is impossible. Brink isn't a very well designed game to begin with. It's simply boring.

I would consider picking this up for $20 maximum. For an extended version with 8 extra maps around $30. But only if the multiplayer was relatively lagfree.

Ah Hyperbole.

But probably around twenty dollars, don't see myself investing much time in the multi-player once I've gone through the maps a few times.

I remember that Quake Wars Enemy Territory had probably twice as many maps as well as vehicles & that was fine for full price. I feel that unless they double the map count & improve the bots this game would be better off in the $30-40 range.  I wonder if they got tired of this game being stuck in development & pushed it out early.

At this point I think it all depends on well how they support their game post release. How many free updates that include new features and maps can they put out without having to start including Non Free DLC. If I were them I would support Brink with tons of new maps and new game types for  free then have some new costumes as DLC. People would start to take notice and at that point the price will probably be around $20USD. Eight more maps and 2 new game types; That's enough content to satisfy people and pique their interests in the game again.

Playing the game would take time away from playing better games so $0 isn't low enough. There is a slogan for 6 shooter records. It's "Life's too short to listen to shitty music." I feel that life's to short to play shitty games.

I think it's important here to differentiate between how much you are prepared to pay for this game and how much you think it's worth. Assessing worth is basically a review in monetary form, whereas stating how much you would be prepared to pay is a reaction based on the reviews of others.

From what I have seen the reviews are mixed, with some people claiming the game to be average, others that it's fantastic, and even a group of people who's experienced have been marred by technical issues.

Opinions, amirite?

Personally I'm interested in the game but after reading the reviews i'm sceptical of dropping full price. However I would totally pick it up if it landed in a steam sale or something. The PC version is currently selling for about £25, which seems fair, though I'd still prefer to wait.
