    1st day impressions from an old Enemy Territory player

    If you're an ET player, don't take all these negative reviews seriously. They're all from people that think Battlefield and CoD are leaders of innovation in FPSing and that nothing else can be done. Firstly.. bugs...... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about Brink

    Answer these questions three (with a yes) and you will like Brink:<br />

    1) Do you enjoy a team-based FPS? 2) Do you care less about kill/death ratios? 3) Are you looking to play something different? Brink is definitely not a game for everyone. It is team-based and should only be played ... Read Full Review

    Not too bad but nowhere near a smash hit!

    I really wanted to like BRINK, but there are quite a few shortcomings that hinder this. PROS: * different - not your standard shooter * customize a cool looking character * surprisingly fun CONS: * prepare for a... Read Full Review

    Not near as bad as Gamespot rated it

    I've been playing it quite a bit since release and I'll admit there are a few things that need some work. For instance, there are some lag issues where characters seem to blip around, but aside from that, it's a great g... Read Full Review

    Don't listen to the reviews- Brink is a solid game that simply takes a bit more time to get the hang of.

    Hello, and thank you for taking the time to read my review for Brink! I understand that this game has received a rough reception from the moment it was released, but I am writing this review to let you know, from my expe... Read Full Review

    Not worth it...

    I have been waiting for this game for months and i was so disappointed with this game - the lag i do not need to talk about if you have played it, no lobby menu for friends to join up before a game starts, no changing up... Read Full Review

    A very niche game that isn't about maxing things out. It's all about playing it for the long run, not for 'finishing'.

    The game itself I find rather neat. Brink tried for a lot of things and attempted to break from the mold of the modern common FPS of this day and age. It did so, but it coul have used more time to apply some polish to al... Read Full Review

    Not bad at all!

    The gameplay is insane, pure fun. Lots of shooting, lots of weapons, customization, weapons that change the way you play... It is really great! But two things ruin the whole package: The stupid single player experience ... Read Full Review

    I have no idea what the complaints are about...

    I got an update this morning before I had the time to play it initially. I had no lag except for 3 quarter second stutters during 8 online matches. The actions is fast-paced and very dynamic, as promised. That update ... Read Full Review
