Brink is an immersive shooter that blends single-player, co-op, and multiplayer gameplay into one seamless experience, allowing you to develop your character across all modes of play. You decide the role you want to assume in the world of Brink as you fight to save yourself and mankind's last refuge for humanity. Brink offers a compelling mix of dynamic battlefields, extensive customisation options, and an innovative control system that will keep you coming back for more.

Brink takes place on the Ark, a man-made floating city that is on the brink of all-out civil war. Originally built as an experimental, self-sufficient and 100% "green" habitat, the reported rapid rise of the Earth's oceans has forced the Ark to become home to not only the original founders and their descendants but also to thousands of refugees. With tensions between the two groups growing, Security and Resistance forces are locked in a heated battle for control of the Ark. Which side will you choose?

  • Not Just Another Hero - Brink's advanced player customization offers a near-endless combination of looks for your character - allowing for the appearance of your character to be truly unique. As you progress through the game and acquire more experience, you'll have even more opportunities for customization
  • Two Sides To Every Story - Choose to fight through the single player campaign as either a member of the Resistance or the Security and then take your same character online to play cooperatively or competitively against other players
  • Blurring The Lines - Take your unique character online at any time you choose! Brink allows you to seamlessly move between your single player campaign, co-op with friends, and intense multiplayer action. Multiplayer takes the story online where you can play with up to seven other people (or AI characters) cooperatively as you take on the opposing faction or with up to 16 players competitively
  • Play SMART - Brink uses the familiar shooter controls that you're used to, without frustrating, artificial constraints and adds a new feature: the SMART button. When you press the SMART button, the game dynamically evaluates where you're trying to get to, and makes it happen. Whether you're a seasoned FPS veteran or someone just getting started, you'll be able to make more intelligent decisions during the fast-paced action with SMART
  • Context-Sensitive Goals & Rewards - Objectives, communications, missions, and inventory selection are all dynamically generated based on your role, your condition, your location, your squad-mates, and the overall status of the battle in all gameplay modes. You'll always know exactly where to go, what to do when you get there, and what your reward will be for success

 Nice Try but needs some work

The initial Idea is good free running FPS, but the execution failed the game itself is a little choppy and pretty buggy and this is coming from a guy running crossfire 5870's. Hopefully they will release some patches to fix the performance issues.

Another issue is the free running controls are pretty horrible it's mostly just mashing the space bar and the actual maps don't really use it that much. As for the campaign there really is no campaign it's just playing against bot's for single player or jumping online playing through the campaign missions also the bots are extremely dumbed down even on hard difficulty.

The multilayer can be fun and the whole concept behind customizing your character is pretty cool but eventually you notice they sort of start to look very similar. It's worth picking up if you can find it for 15 - 20 pounds and that's if you have nothing better to play at the time otherwise I'd stay away.

 4* If They Fix The FPS Lag

Ok so the hype killed this game a little bit, its not amazing by anymeans but its still a good game, dont expect call of duty style gameplay guns are underpowerd in this game so it takes more than normal to kill people (not a stupid amount just more).

The free running is smooth when using the smart button but the maps dont arnt made well and dont seem made with the free running in mind and the game modes...... well there arnt any every map has its unique objective simalar to killzone 3's operation maps so theres no TDM/CTF/Conquest/rush etc.

The big downside of this game is the fps issues but after two very quick patches from splash damage it is getting better, still not there but its on its way.

To sum it up this game is not a next gen shooter but it does do something different to stand out in the sea of fps games, worth checking out but dont have realy high hopes.

 Best game that has came out this year!

This game is very unique, as soon as you press play you start to notice how revolutionised the game is, it's next-gen compared to other shooters in todays market (Call of Duty), it may have some flaws but a few updates and the majority of the problems will be ironed out.

 nice idea but failed

the concept is great free running FPS but it just falls down on too many points. the guns just dont feel right at all, the graphics are blurry and has bad textures, there is no real single player just an AI multiplayer with cutscenes and training levels and the AI its self is very flawed. the lack of levels and the fact most levels have no real use for the freerunning is just stupid. i did like the art style and the customisation but the guns are not that great or different from each other.

 Awesome Game

If your bored with all the cookie cutter FPS shooters on the market right now then Brink is definitally worth a shot of. Fresh new ideas pulled off well in good enviroments. Multiplayer is objective based and forces team work which imo is a good thing. The graphics are amazing too and so smooth. To the person who said they were blurry.............Go into visual options and turn off motion blur........... DOH lol :)
