About This Game

Brink is an immersive first-person shooter that blends single-player, co-op, and multiplayer gameplay into one seamless experience, allowing you to develop your character whether playing alone, with your friends, or against others online. You decide the combat role you want to assume in the world of Brink as you fight to save yourself and mankind’s last refuge. Brink offers a compelling mix of dynamic battlefields, extensive customization options, and an innovative control system that will keep you coming back for more.

Brink takes place on the Ark, a man-made floating city that is on the brink of all-out civil war. Originally built as an experimental, self-sufficient and 100% “green” habitat, the reported rapid rise of the Earth’s oceans has forced the Ark to become home to not only the original founders and their descendants but also to thousands of refugees. With tensions between the two groups growing, Security and Resistance forces are locked in a heated battle for control of the Ark. Which side will you choose?

KEY FEATURES:

  • Not Just Another Hero – Brink's advanced player customization offers a near-endless combination of looks for your character – allowing for the appearance of your character to be truly unique. As you progress through the game and acquire more experience, you’ll have even more opportunities for customization.
  • Two Sides to Every Story – Choose to fight through the single player campaign as either a member of the Resistance or the Security and then take your same character online to play cooperatively or competitively against other players.
  • Blurring the Lines – Take your unique character online at any time you choose! Brink allows you to seamlessly move between your single player campaign, co-op with friends, and intense multiplayer action. Multiplayer takes the story online where you can play with up to seven other people (or AI characters) cooperatively as you take on the opposing faction or with up to 16 players competitively.
  • Play SMART – Brink uses the familiar shooter controls that you’re used to, without frustrating, artificial constraints and adds a new feature: the SMART button. When you press the SMART button, the game dynamically evaluates where you’re trying to get to, and makes it happen. Whether you’re a seasoned FPS veteran or someone just getting started, you’ll be able to make more intelligent decisions during the fast-paced action with SMART.
  • Context-Sensitive Goals and Rewards - Objectives, communications, missions, and inventory selection are all dynamically generated based on your role, your condition, your location, your squad-mates, and the overall status of the battle in all gameplay modes. You’ll always know exactly where to go, what to do when you get there, and what your reward will be for success.

The narrow corridors and choke-points completely ruin this game. Just sitting there buffing each other, getting off a few shots at the enemy, but don't really hurt him. 5 clips later you down an enemy then you get downed, the enemy gets revived, then you get revived. Repeat. That's the whole game in a nutshell.

this was a great game in my honest opinion - it's just to bad the game didn't support player vs player environment was soooo disappointing when i found that out it really put the cherry on the cake when i found you couldn't even play with other people but it seems as if they patched that since my last visit to the gorgeous game. I would recommend this game under the circumstances of only playing for a good story- but thats it. don't get sucked into the game expecting great team work or player vs player - because it's not there.

Great game with an amazing world, however it has a very low playercount. Has bot support though, which is almost as fun as playing with people. Good deal for $10 but waiting for a sale might be better.

This used to be very good
The Smooth Movement Across Random Terrain = S.M.A.R.T was probably the best thing in this shooter
Why you shut down the servers?
It had a good base of players
Trust me,this community was not toxic at all,I were a noob once,then my team took me and explained to me what`s what

I got this game about a year ago for free from my damn good friend, Beruka.

The gameplay is awesome, and so is the parkour. The campaign was a little short, but that's ok, its multiplayer.
Kind of..
The servers are mostly dead, and the only ones that aren't password locked or dont have anyone playing are filled with bots and not many players.

Otherwise, it's a great game.

Old game, old review.

I actually quite like the game. The story isn't fantastic nor is a lot of things but I don't tend to notice them half the time. I only ever played with Bots because I'd imagine not many servers would be up and I don't know many people who would be up for it. Either case,

Weapons. Most of the suck. Yet it got me excited when I found a combo that actually worked. Using certain attachments allowing some to shine just a little bit to be worthwhile. Unlike most where it just didn't freaking matter. Nothing was class locked but rather weight locked. Honestly made more sense this way. Same goes for actual survivability but locking down what you can and can't do with agility actions. Common sense. For a time a lot of games just class locked weapons and weights to make it difficult to play in the style that you would like. I certainly liked being a big fat guy with a chaingun throwing revive syringes at people. Also, syringes? I don't know many people who like needles and know less that would be content in jabbing themselves with a needle that may or may not be unclean. Particularly if you are Resistance.

The two sides, well. I liked the Resistance far more. Disregarding how flawed the story is for both sides and the reason there has been fighting I preferred the Resistance for their badass punk style. Both sides got their 'creepy' costumes but I always went with the badass look of the Resistance. Their music was also significantly better than Security. A sense of desperation and despair with a lot of hatred. Security was just, meh. In fact Security is really nothing special. They have some sweet clothing but out of the available 'stories' they were the worst. Most bland and only partially relatable. Whenever I heard conversations about Brink I've always heard (aside from dead game, glitchy and boring) was that Resistance were cool and relatable and Security sucked ♥♥♥♥.

Most of the maps are terrible. When fighting against AI you just hope the enemy screws up or your team actually does something useful. I will give the game credit where it is due, the AI will at least do objectives. Unlike most co-op games where they expect you, the player, to do EVERYTHING to wiping their ♥♥♥ for them. But boy do most of the maps suck. Only Container City really stuck for me. Because on either side it is fun. It is the most memorial out of the maps for me at least.

I wished the game did better, that the Devs had stuck to it making the changes it solely needed. It was just forgotten tragicly by players and the developers all the same. BRINK wasn't on the brink of death when it released or when the Devs stopped caring. It died before they even committed to not giving a ♥♥♥♥. I still like it and I still recommend it because it is good at the things it can do.

I'm giving it a thumbs-up, but buy it on sale.

It's a pretty enjoyable objective-based shooter that was hamstringed by a bad launch. The game doesn't have dedicated servers anymore, but the solo play is decent, and if any of your friends own the game you can host a private server.

I know this game gets a bad rep and I totally agree with most of the criticism this game has received. It does have a repetitive "campaign" that isn't even really a campaign, and there is a practically negative player base at this point. I will say, however, that it is a really fun game with fantastic mechanics that just happened to have ♥♥♥♥♥♥ "multiplayer campaign" kind of like titanfall, which also got a bad rep. With the current price drop on steam from 20 to 10 dollars I think that it's worth it to buy brink, especially if it's on sale. If you get some friends to play with it's even better and could be a fun adition to a LAN party.

This is one of the greatest games ever made, always holding a dear spot in our heart. The lack of servers is devastating, and I refuse to stand idely by. Together, we can all work to Brink it Back. Sign here to get Splash Damage and Bethesda to bring back the servers!

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME UNTIL BETHESDA BRINGS BACK THE SERVERS ONLINE!!!

It is a nice game with really new/fresh game play and style. I guess it is something like a breed of Mirror’s Edge and some fun/mediocre FPS with a quite big freedom/choice in classes and class creation. For the rest just check some youtube videos.
What is annoying though is that Bethesda has SWITCHED OFF THE DEDICATED SERVERS, SO THE GAME NOW IS PLAYABLE JUST IN SINGLE PLAYER MOD!!!

Please thumbs up this comment, so more people can see and do not spend their hard earned money on a false multiplayer advertised game and hopefully this will make Bethesda to put the servers online again, then I can highly recommend the game. Also be warned that Bethesda can do the same “trick” on any future multiplayer title in order to make you buy the next title eg. Dirty Bomb.

Unfortanately there are no servers for the US so that means no multiplayer for us.

SplashDamage if you read this: MAKE BRINK 2 and this time with a proper campaign and more maps that encourage parkour!
