AusGamers: Brink Review

AusGamers: We've spent dozens of hours with Brink across Xbox 360 and PC and have an extensive review of its impact not just as a standalone title, but for the first-person shooter genre.

"Splash Damage has a strong history of creating solid team-based shooters—Enemy Territory of the Wolfenstein and Quake Wars varieties spring to mind—and a lot of love has been put into the multiplayer portion of Brink. The strange but cool thing is how linked single-player, co-op and competitive multiplayer are. They’re all set on the same maps with the same objectives, regardless of the play mode. That’s the strange. The cool thing is that the character/s you create are likewise linked. Regardless of whether you earn experience in competitive multiplayer, co-op or playing alone through the campaign (challenges or in ‘Freeplay’), all of your hard-earned XP goes towards your character. This is a fantastic addition to first-person shooters and makes it feel less like the usual grind associated that’s with the definitive split between single and multiplayer modes in other games."

So many mixed reviews. Guess I'll stick to my guns and say screw it and play it. Never let a review stop me from playing a game before, not gonna start now. Gonna wait for it to be used though.

Having seen IGN's video review of Brink, I was a bit miffed at the score. The game deserves to be criticised for its lack of single-player focus, but it really shines as a multipalyer title, despite some flaws.

"AusGamers: We've spent dozens of hours with Brink across Xbox 360 and PC and have an extensive review of its impact not just as a standalone title, but for the first-person shooter genre." Sounds like something most other reviewers didn't do (the dozens of hours part not saying its needed but more then 30mins)

Haha, agreed. It's the kind of game that gets more rewarding the more you play it. I'm just glad that we got code early for once!

Sounds pretty much like the Gran Turismo thing as well... "Hurr, no damage, ai's dumb" 20 levels later "wtf is my car destroyed and im last :<" Idiots.
