Brink has been game I've been looking forward to for a long time now. In my opinion it's game that should be looked into. It is going to be different from any other FPS that has came out, and that is the main reason I'm picking it up.

Going to provide some videos that explain the game in better detail.

Hand's on demo.

Brink's main website.

I am really pumped for this game, and it's coming out May 11th. As I said before, main reason I am getting this game is for a different kiind FPS, I think (or hope) that Brink has hit the nail on the head.

For many people, fps's are defined by 3 classic franchises: 007 (for its use of vast amounts of weopens/grenades), halo (for its amazingly good multiplayer/unorthodox weopens), and counter-strike/team fortress (for their extreeeemely addicting online pc multiplayer). Gonna be interesting to see how brink competes, seeing as there's a flood of new shooters coming out in the next month (namely conduit2, and 2 new 007 games)

Agreed. It was one of the games though I said I was going to get.

It will be interesting to see how it does when it is released. Sadly my money is on it fall within the cracks of the gaming industry.

Yeah I've been looking at this for a while now. A lot of people that play Quake Live know about Splash Damage as they made ET:QW and there was a bit about it at Quakecon as well.

It looks prety good.

Anyone else get this game? So far I'm impressed, although the matchmaking needs a bit of work.

I really like it, but I've been playing other games to much at the moment to put time on it. Game was confusing at first, but all and all okay. To be honest, IGN was very very hard on it.

IGN is filled with COD fanboys. So it's not a surprise they didn't like it as much as COD.
But yeah, the game is very good and the S.M.A.R.T. System is a nice touch to a shooter game like this.

None of the people who I knew played Brink still do. To be honest they stopped after a month because of the scarcity of people online.

Looking back... I never really got this game to be honest... when I watched people spawning and buffing everyone else who spawned next to them for no apparently obvious reason, it seemed RuneScape-esque in the horribly fabricated way it simply rewarded doing the action, regardless of context, difficulty or personal skill level. And I've never played CoD so that rules the "CoD fanboy hates anything except CoD" argument out. There might be a place in the market for what Brink tried to do but it needs to be much more tactical to promote situational use rather than, "You're over 50ft from any enemy 'coz you've just spawned next to me... Have a weapon buff!!!" The game was anything but subtle in this aspect.

Then again, most of the people I know who bought this would buy a black bag full of garbage if it had a sign labelled "RPG" on it, so it's perhaps understandable why they found that appealing.

I hope you're talking about bots rather than people. Unless they exp whoring which even then is one of the worst ways to do it. The actual gameplay is quite different than any other FPS I've seen so far, the SMART movement system being the huge difference. You can find videos of it if you're really interested rather than my horrible butchery of describing it beyond it's something like parkour.

It's not an RPG, it's a FPS as stated above. There is some storyline behind it rather than (Oh God another alien/terrorist invasion/attack on <insert random generic locations of urban/wilderness>. At the same time though, the story is more background to actual gameplay.

I think where Brink fell down for me is the connection of the campaign/multiplayer. I loved the customisation, the SMART system and the weapons, its just there was nobody online whenever I tried to join a game and what I could connect to the connection dropped out instantly. Plus it doesn't help the actual campaign was absolute tosh. I personally would've spent so much more time on it if the multiplayer was a separate thing from the campaign.

Many believe that the 1980 eruption of Mt. Saint Helens was a catostrophic geological event, in reality it was the day that Jimi Hendrix returned to Earth from the next world and actually stood up next to a mountain and chopped it down with the edge of his hand.

Online Campaign and Online Freeplay are two different things. Campaign is always Co-Op whereas Freeplay is Co-Op or Competitive and you can switch sides freely depending on settings. Nobody plays online Campaign or very rarely.

SMART was a good idea. People on all FPS games look for nooks and crannies to gain an advantage so I thought this was a good idea and it was well implemented in the game.

It was a human player I was referring to and he wasn't exp-whoring either. Well... I think he just liked fancy numbers flashing up on a screen regardless of the efficiency of it all. When we played Halo: Reach he'd whack out the magnum on spawning and shoot people about 20 yards away rapidly though... then he used to scream at the telly when only two bullets in the eight-clip hit. Maybe I'm being really unfair and judging a whole game because he played it like a pillock, but seemed to do half alright on it. Maybe he just wasn't that good at FPS games. :?

I got too pumped up for this game when it came out.l I was expecting something that would re leave me COD games. While it had some good ideas, it just didnt bring it all together for me. I have considered buying on the PC to give it another go, but at the money is tight.

Maybe a bit TOO far, but that's essentially what I think.

Just an FYI, Brink on PC is pretty much empty.
