CG - "I’m sure I wasn’t the only one that was eagerly anticipating the release of Brink. I mean, it was a Bethesda game, and that counts for a lot! But when the game was released, it was met with a raucous series of BOO’s."
I'm probably going to get a lot of disagrees, but I actually like Brink in its current state. Sure, the launch was horrible, but what game hasn't had a poor launch? Have we all forgotten about Black Ops all of a sudden? If you play with friends you can have loads of fun. The game is actually plagued by noobs who have no idea how to work together and play properly. I dare say this game failed due to poor players.
nope not even for free
As the 1st person in the world to platinum this game I say $10 is the perfect price point. http://www.yourgamercards.n... Edit @t0mmyb0y below Lol every trophy hunter/whore/collector worth their salt has a YGC account. I'm 1st on all sites. Too bad Sony doesn't keep their own leaderboards. http://psnprofiles.com/trop... PS3T is broken right now.
"Tracking 224,858 users World Wide." Nice try M-Easy :D Im considering getting this game it had me interested before it was released.
I just got it for free on Steam yesterday thanks to IGN. :D Gonna give it a try tonight.
how is the online matchmaking now? i liked brink quite a bit, but when i would jump online i would be playing alone. so essentially i would be in an online bot match hahah. like for some reason i would only get connected to matches with maybe 2 people at the most, sometimes. haven't gone back to it because of that.
during the free weekend the game was pretty good with a lot of the problems gone that some say
"I'm probably going to get a lot of disagrees..." I don't agree with what you said, but I'll agree with the post just to contradict your initial assumption.
I bought it from Gamefly a few weeks ago for ten bucks and I think it was a pretty good purchase. I can see why it got poor reviews, but I've found it pretty enjoyable overall.
"Sure, the launch was horrible, but what game hasn't had a poor launch?" Ermm...a TON of games?
Yeah, most games release finished, but you can't pretend many games (some of which were highly reviewed, had huge budget and major hype) haven't indeed also launched broken. It have happened to all platforms, exclusives and multiplats, physical media and digital versions... I'm not saying it's alright to release the game broken, it isn't, but I can see why he would assume it to be usual as in fact it is.
I remember seeing this game this past summer being hyped sooo much as the future of FPSs, thousands of custom character creations, being published by Bethesda...What the hell happened???
i normally dont listen to reviews, but I did with this title. Im not sure what happened either. I really had high hopes for this game. Theres just too many other games out there to have bought this for 60$. i might drop 10$ on it though.
I was one of the few who thought it looked crappy from the beginning. Just the internet hyping things up.
Poor launches should not be so commonplace. Sick of every game needed day 1 and week one patches to be playable.
Damn. If the game got to $10 THAT quickly, it pretty much says that it's a bad game...not even Force Unleashed II is $10
I think I'll bite. The game looks good, just not $60 good, but $10, sure...
How is spending $25 for shipping count as free shipping?
You have to spend $25+ to get the free shipping, or if you have Amazon Prime, it's free no matter what.
Nah. Not even for free. Too many good games to play.
No. It's such a poor game.
Maybe if Brink came free with the purchase of a better game I might get it.
I still wouldn't, because that piece of plastic is going to last for a long time on this earth. I would hate for an alien civilization to come long after we are extinct and find my copy of Brink and play it.
Is it really THAT bad?
GTR LMFAO!... so true that game is really that bad. I wasted my $60 on this game. I wish I was a millionaire so I could build a time machine, travel back in time, and talk myself outta wasting my money on hyped up trash such as this one.
Wasn't Brink supposed to revolutionize the FPS genre according to some people on here?
I own and played it. Man, not a very good game at all. I'll just leave it at that, lol.
Too many good games out/coming out to even think about wasting time on this game.
lmao it's at $10 already? Crappy ass game
gamefly store has it for 8.99 with free shipping.
But you have to pay taxes on Gamefly orders...
yeah cuz tax on a 9$ game is alot lol
Sweet ill get this and people dont like it must be good.
The Pc version us better than the console version. If you must get Brink, get it on the PC. The console version is kind of blurry and indistinct.
the pc version was after getting it for $10 at bestbuy
game felt unbalanced all the guns felt the same and the customization never did a thing no matter what size of gun u use it felt it had the same damage
Market is over saturated with FPS games so I simply didn't care anyways. I just ordered WKC2,Dark Souls a few days ago can't wait for some RPG goodness
Not only it isn't worth the $10 but also not worth the time you'll spend playing the game.
i honestly didnt think the game was THAT bad. It wasnt great but it had its fun moments! I got the game during the psn downtime & finished it with just bots since its all i could do, The day i was ready to quit playing it the psn came back up, maybe it was just that i was used to it by then but it was more fun with online.
game sux bad, they can keep their Easter Island Characters to themselves
I guess it may be ok on the PC. It's biggest fault is that it didn't have a singleplayer and theres not content.
so many let downs :( crysis 2 brink bf3 beta black ops driver san fransisco are we expecting to much?
How were you let down by a alpha beta? it was a BETA and an old build at that. And Driver: SF was pretty awesome.
i was expecting an awesome beta that would give a good impression to bad for me huh?
Crysis 2 a letdown? Why, because it wasnt hyped enough like stupid Halo? Game is one of the best fps games of all time! Youre right about all the other let downs though. Wouldnt pay $1 for Brink, no single player campaign either. Junk!
I dont know why youve received only disagrees. People who haven't even played this game take offense... why? This game was horrible, no two ways about it. People were frothing at the mouth while I sat back and called it the whole time. Call me irrational, call me whatever you'd like, but the fact remains that I was right. I was reported for trolling and subsequently a poster raised several reasons why the game was SUPPOSED to be good. Lol. But it was't. Maybe I wasn't the irrational one, maybe it was the guy who defends this game till the death.
I played it more than I played Rage. At least Brink's textures load properly. I returned Rage, and I still have Brink. I'm more focused on other games right now (Ico/SotC and Disgaea 4), but if I wanted a shooter game I'd say its worth $10. Nothing wrong with a shotgun and a face painted like the Union Jack for a little fun.
IMO, No, got it from Gamefly then had it back in the mail 2 hours after I put the disc in. Horrible overhyped mess of a game, even the dreadful overhyped "Haze" was a better game than Brink.
for 10 bucks it really has to be worth it, even if i struggle through a rainy weekend and then sell it on EBAY for 10 bucks, i consider 10 bucks basically the price to rent this anyways. just like James Bond bloodstone, picked that up for 13 bucks, totally worth it.
I loved it! Playing as an operative was tons of fun. Especially if you go around and disrupt the engineers. Using the EMP grenade to disable turrets and land mines, to hacking the turrets then placing a control on it and manually use it against them. Hacking downed opponents for information, then using them as a disguise to penetrate defenses. Playing as an operative was too much fun but with games like Gears 3 and such you are not going find many full matches. And the single story being just bot matches that you can have random people join seemed disjointed. Overall I loved it, but lack of players playing made me put the game aside. Might have to pick it up again. =D
no, its not. go out to see a movie and spend an extra 5 on some popcorn. WAY better than going online (the only option in this game) and finding out there is noone else to play it.
helll nooooooooo burn that shit....
wow, this game flopped hard.
I actually find the game enjoyable. And, even more so when you have a friend to play, with.
Duke Nukem Forever is better than this garbage!
