First review is in

Post by JDwan on Tue May 10, 2011 12:13 am

Well, the first one I've seen anyway.

http://www.joystiq.com/2011/05/10/brink-review/

This made me sad (2 stars out of 5) but I'm still considering trying it for myself.....we'll see though. Might just wait for BF3.

uh oh. looks like I spoke too soon on deciding whether or not to buy it. This is just one review, and joystiq is always harsh on their reviews. I think I'm going to wait for the rest of them to make my decision now.

Now I can't decide whether or not to buy it. Purple seems to like it, but most reviews say it's either average or bad. Anyone else here play it yet?

I didn't look at any reviews before I played it, and I was having a blast with the customization and classes (I made my Resistance member a TF2 Heavy with a Glasgow smile Razz)

Plus I haven't even tried online yet.

The campaign story is kinda non-existent though, so don't go in expecting Half-Life on the Ark.

So with Purple and Bergy saying they like it I went and bought it. I usually like the same games so hopefully I'll enjoy it. I'll let you know how it is once I play it, but I doubt I will really know until the multiplayer comes back on. For the people who bought it, want to play together once the PSN comes up? Sounds like it's a better game with a good team.

I'll try to join up when PSN comes back on; joining a good/enjoyable group will probably be where I get the most fun out of this game.

Here are some other notes:

*In the beginning you will get to choose from one of ten voice actors, but it turns out to only be in-game, as during cutscenes your badass character is shown in the background while other people take the spotlight.

* The AI bots will fluctuate in difficulty sometimes, from killing machines to mental patients who can't aim.

*Playing the challenges (which aren't that challenging) will easily unlock lots of weapons and their attachments. There are some pretty crazy combinations you can make.

*Class mechanics are really fun.

*You'll spend half the time customizing your character and trying different weapon/attachment combinations.

*Unless the multiplayer is laggy as hell, Brink is better than Black Ops (which was like Game of the Year for some sites :/ )

So I bought it yesterday but didn't get to play it until today. So far I like the customizability of it. I changed the control scheme to Zone of Killing (Razz) and it handles pretty much like KZ. I will probably switch to default just to see how that goes though.

So far, the mechanics seem good. I like the class abilities and the parkour stuff is pretty cool. Had some fun with the challenges and got through about half of the Resistance campaign. I can't really tell the difference between the different levels of the campaign on than you switch whether you're on offense or defense.

I think overall I like it but it has yet to fully grip me. I want to see how the MP/Co-op goes once the PSN comes back up as I think that will help give a better feel for what the game is about. The AI seems ok at helping you out but most of the time I feel like I'm on my own even when they are surrounding me.

No, I haven't been able to play it yet, but this review seems to be the most honest one I could find. Seems like a lot of the things could be easily fixed with a patch to add a pregame lobby and clan support. It sounds like a good game for a clan.

My first first impression is that the team AI sucks. They can't do a task as simple as guarding a planted explosive. This is definitely a multiplayer game. I could see how it would be a lot less frustrating if I could count on the rest of my team to do what they are supposed to and to do it good. Still too soon to say whether it's worth the money or not.

I've noticed that too, especially with retarded medics that rush into a hot spot to revive you only to get killed.

"Hey look, there's no one guarding the return point for the objective! Let me just take the longest possible route to get there...."

or

"I'm going to go capture the command point even though there's only 1 minute left to complete the main objective!"

From what I've seen so far I wouldn't recommend it. But while I was playing the game I kept thinking how much better it would be if I had real people on my team that wanted to work together the right way to get things done. Only buy this if you really need a new game to play before BF3.
