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

    Rated on May 12, 2011 by brad_d

    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 sh...

    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 CO...

    Not near as bad as Gamespot rated it

    Rated on May 12, 2011 by mooch35

    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 ...

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

    Not worth it...

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

    Rated on May 12, 2011 by hokucho

    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 app...

    Not bad at all!

    Rated on May 12, 2011 by lipehique

    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 singl...

    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 pro...
