Sorry but I'm going to need to know how many achievement points you have in this game before I can take this review seriously.

Posted by Keenblaze

I CALLED IT, BABY.

Hmm.

I am so disappointed by Brink. :(

Posted by TheCheese33

Fair enough. Personally, I love the game.

Posted by zombie2011

So glad i didn't pick this up.

Posted by phrosnite

Ouch indeed. No surprise here though. I call it :) Just like APB. I'm two of two.

Sorry to hear about the low review score, looked so promising in the previews. I still might give this a try though if there's a demo knocking about.

How unfortunate.

So we're not allowed to like a game someone else didn't?

It's amazing that Gamebomb wrote a review ages ago for Brink and gave it a poor score too.  Crazy!

How do you figure? Every complaint he's layed to the game are all valid and he gives reasons for it.

AWWWW shitttttt. Actually, not really. It looked pretty lame from the QL.

Posted by Meltbrain

Man. What a let down. Whatever, I guess I didn't have high hopes or anything.

I think he was joking. There was a miniature conspiracy earlier today with reviewers calling each other out over Gamerscore.

Haha! Thats awesome, after watching the quick look, then hearing all the review mess this morning its funny to hear Jeff say, "No I think it should get a 2/5 as well!" I trust Jeff's word over all others.

Who was that meant for?

This review just saved me 50 bucks.  Thanks Jeff!

lol @ Achievegate


Anyways, I think a PC review might have been better for this.  I think only the dedicated servers on PC allow you to turn off the bots, playing with all humans is very fun on the PC side.  Granted the game isn't without its issues, but judging on the AI isn't good as it certainly is no Deep Blue.

Only two pictures, Jeff? I'm not going to take this review seriously, Jeff. I mean, seriously, Jeff. Seriously.

Someone needs to get their sarcasm meter fixed.
Posted by Zeninnnnnnnn

I figured as much. It sounded like it had some promise, but seeing that quicklook cemented my suspicions that the game is not worth my money.

Posted by ApolloBob

This pokes you with a stick, hornets nest of internet.

Posted by CosmicQueso

Well the PC crowd that enjoyed ET games will surely like it, as I do.  Hey, to each their own.


Just too bad that it wasn't tried on the PC or with human players.  But whatever, gotta get that review up quick, right?
Posted by l4wd0g

Great review Jeff. I appreciate your point of view.

Posted by rjayb89

Thanks, Jeff, for adding a third image. I like your review, Jeff.

Posted by Enigma777
No real surpise here. The lack of content kinda makes me wonder why it took so long for it to come out... I really do like the art style and the general look of the game though, but I'll probably pass or wait till it's in the bargain bin.

Bethesda will not take kindly to this. NO MORE FREE RIDES NO MORE FREE ACCESS! lol

Posted by buzz_killington

Didn't see this coming; thought it would be a three-starrer.

I did play the 360 version with quite a few actual people, wouldn't have reviewed it at all if I hadn't. Anyway, we just got the PC version today, I'm going to at least check it out for a bit tonight. An option to totally disable bots already makes it sound at least a little bit better than the console version.

Actually, there are plenty of people who are loving the game.

Biggest disappointment of 2011? Remember that one in the next year end Bombcast fellas...

Edited by SlightConfuse


as expected the game seams aliitle bare for a retail game

 

but what about the achievements?

Posted by Scribbly

Ouch, I was expecting a 3 as well. Hopefully this doesn't affect Giant Bomb's ability to get interviews/demos of upcoming Bethesda games through the game journalism bullshit that sometimes accompanies bad reviews.

Chin up, plenty of awesome games still to come this year.
Posted by RIDEBIRD
@CosmicQueso: He delayed the review to specifically test the multiplayer. And I'm a PC gamer as well, but this game is so clearly made for consoles anyway, so I don't see how the choice of format matters at all.

And we want the long-form gamerscore certificate, just to be sure!
Posted by CrazedMaverick

Damn. I knew Brink was gonna end up as a disappointment, but still wished it panned out in the end. :[
