I've been extremely excited for this game, but it wasn't near as good as I expected. Adds a lot of fresh ideas with the parkour style movement, different body types, and customizable weapons, but seems to over complicate itself when applying each. I ended up only using the medium body style because the heavy was basically useless and the light died extremely easily and was only a fraction more agile. Weapon customization is cool, but there are so many options its hard to tell if you've made a good choice. Friendly AI is extremely idiotic, they will hardly ever assist you in your mission and normally run off in another direction. Enemy AI always seem to know exactly where you are, and in almost every situation will outnumber you by a lot. Campaign and Online play are exactly the same. There are about 20 different missions you can choose from, which give you the option of playing off/online. Online (for me) was extremely laggy and I almost never used it because of this.

Brink was a great idea, but it's development doesn't come close to the hype it's created over the past year.

I was definately looking forawrd to this game but soon after i got in the mail i was somewhat dissapointed. It's very hard and the SMART system is kind of lumpy. Yes there is a VERY bad lag online. Also the AI is somewhat stupid because the enemy would be running into a wall then do a 360 and just shoot you down like nothing. however it was very fun and definately something I've never expirenced before. Too bad they couldnt quite get it right.

Brink, Unexpected

Brink is a parkcore game that is a mixture between black ops, borderlands and halo. The game allows you to create a caracter which is not all that great, you get to chose from outfits for your guy. (cant choose girl) The gameplay is okay, it's fun and all but for some reason it always lags when playing single player challanges. Also so far i havn't been able to find out how to do single player campaign. Its very confusing how to find your way around the menus and the missions dont make any sense at all. When playing online, it's almost impossable to enjoy it. It constantly lags when doing anything. it gets very frusterating. I would give this game a 4/10
