After spending a few hours with the game, the reasons become apparent: even Brink doesn’t seem to know what, exactly, Brink is. Perhaps the best description, though, isn't "an immersive first-person shooter that blends single-player, co-op, and multiplayer gameplay into one seamless experience," as the blurb might have you believe. There are elements of those, certainly. But a far better description would be "more colourful Quake Wars without vehicles."
