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.

Storyline:
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

 massive disappointment

| | See all stwiie's reviews (30)

im just gonna say it from the start this game is a massive disappointment,it had so much potential with its ideas but on final release OUCH. to have been pushing the whole free-running and gunning idea for nearly 2yrs now and for the final product to run at a snails pace makes me wonder why it got delayed several times. graphics a very shocking to the point that they r PS2 in quality,they very blurry and muddy. texture pop is also shocking u can look at a wall for several seconds waiting for it to look like a wall look away then look back and it starts the detail drawing again. character animations and movement only seem to have about 5 different animations and watching them try to free-run is hilarious. im sorry but if anyone can say this game is good and rate it above 3 is beyond me it truely is. like i say the idea and potential was there but something happened and it failed BAD

 MUST BUY

 Good fun for multiplayer

If your looking for single player action then you'll be dissappointed but if you like co-op and multiplayer you'll have a blast. The reason being the computer AI is dreadful!! They really don't help you achieve the objectives and most of the time just get in the way. But when you open it up to co-op and multiplayer there is loads of fun to be had. Being able to customize your look and weapons is also very well done. Also another nice feature is being able to change the controller settings to suit the way you like to play. Presets are in for Battlefield, COD, Halo, L4D to name a few. My rating is based on the co-op and multiplayer so 5 stars but single player needs looking at especially the AI so i'd say 1 Star.

 Good tactical fun

The bad reviews are unjustified in my opinion. Shatteredbones, "can only play against AI bots" ? no, you change the settings so you can play 8v8 human, you dont HAVE to play against or with bots.
Read the manual before you play!

Agree with the other main points people are saying, crappy AI on the single player section, excellent customisation, and once you get the hang of the game and controls, great tactical play, kill/death ratios mean nothing here, which is a welcome relief from COD or whichever FPS you play.

Have not tried this with a headset yet but I reckon it will be amazing!
