Wow. New for $10 bucks and used for $15? Even though we have a Hastings locally, I still think I'll wait for a steam sale.

Dude after that free weekend, I don't think it's even worth a Steam sale. That 30fps lock and fucked mouse controls really killed it for me.

@wolf_blitzer85: Aw. I always miss free weekends, but broken mouse controls in competitive games are impossible to look past.

I hate myself but not that much.

I wouldn't pay for it. Steam had that free weekend and the game was terrible.

Online is absolutely dead for this game, which is disappointing. Still I'd recommend it for $10.

Nope. I got about 50$ worth of fun out of it. Having a regular group to play with greatly enhances the game.

I rented it from Redbox and had fun. It was worth the $4. Got a fuckton of achievements too.

Looks like it's $9.99 on amazon this week. Seriously, I think this is one of the biggest video game failures I've ever seen. In less than 5 months it's in the dregs of the bargain bin. What a shame.

I considered it, but then checked the reviews, and apparently it's even worse than I thought.

I had fun with Brink, SMART system was kinda glitchy but I had some pretty memorable moments with it.

If I hated myself, I'd buy Duke Nukem Forever on Steam for $10 now.

It is sad that games like this, and duke nukem forever have already been on sale for 10 - 15 dollars after only being released less then a year ago. I know they suck, but damn that must hurt seeing that when you helped develop those games.

Brink was a great game in terms of gameplay, but all the lag issues in the online for consoles killed the game for me. I loved the objective basis of it, and teams actually worked together. It's a rarity on Xbox Live. It definitely wasn't a good first impression for id Tech on consoles. Luckily, Rage gave me that confidence back...but unfortunately, such a good game has to suffer from such crippling issues.

I thought you meant that XBLA game, but then I remember that is called Breach not Brink, I always get those confused. They both seemed like games to ignore anyway...for any price.
