Not No Call of Duty

This game is nothing like Call of Duty. If you are in to that, don’t buy it. Wait a few months and spend another $60 on another Call of Duty. This is Brink, it is a mix of several games rolled into a small package and guess what it works.

People might criticize how boring singleplayer. Well you really not going to buy it for the story. You are buying it to have fun with friends, and this is the game to play. When the game came out, my friends and I launched the game and play the campaign for 4 hours and we had a blast. It was 8 of us versus 8 bots, though bots were almost brain dead but it was fun. We didn’t care much for the story but we got it for the multiplayer and that is where this game shines.

This game is all about multiplayer. You need to work as a team to get stuff down with 8 versus 8 maps. The game is all about teamwork. Lone wolves will get you nowhere. Everyone has to do the part and help the team do objectives, yep objectives. This game is all about objectives. So much about objectives, you hit tab and there is no kills or deaths score. The objectives range from VIP escorting to blowing up doors. Each team has their own objectives with small minor ones like capping a command panel for extra health. It is pretty much ether defend or attack, straight forward.

There are some bugs. On the PC, you get wonderful bugs like “Mission Complete” is just random letters and numbers. Or people with ATI cards have a problem with frame rate. I didn’t encounter any bugs except for server browser dropping me to 7fps.

If you don’t want to read what I typed out and skipping to the end? Buy this game and get your friends to buy it too. If you don’t have friends or friends that are cheap, sorry buddy time to make new ones.

    For a game that spent so long in development, you'd expect more than this.Just to clarify things: I first played the game in Late November 2011. When Brink was released, bad netcode, and crippling bugs and poor optimization for ATI cards ensured that I did not buy it. Come a few months later, the patches have been applied, I have a powerful Nvidia card and it was on sale for 5 dollars, so I got it.Well, 5 bucks not well spent.I won't bore you with a long review: Essentially Brink has the followi...

    Its ambitious claim to innovate the FPS is a medicore one. 0

    What do you get when you combine a famed, first-rate publisher in Bethesda with Enemy Territory: Quake Wars creator Splash Damage? If your answer was an excellent, innovative and superbly-polished game entitled 'Brink', you'd only be a quarter right. Saying that, Brink accomplishes quite a bit with its unique formula and functionality, but its overall lack of ingenuity turns this incredible-looking first-person shooter into a derivative afterthought. Brink's story begins and ends with the Ar...
