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.

I bought this game on 360 and said to myself, "why the ♥♥♥♥ing ♥♥♥♥ did i buy this?", and decided i'd at least get it on sale to give it another chance..then realized there is no gamepad (controller) compatibility whatsoever..Which made me think, "but...it was a console game too..so why no controller?"

WHY! WHY IS THERE NO ♥♥♥♥ING CONTROLLER SUPPORT!? THAT'S ALL THIS GAME WAS GOOD FOR WAS BEING PLAYED WITH A CONTROLLER!?/ SDJFHRREACLN hump bump your mothers b-hole, Brink. right in the b-hole..you stink.

I bought this game for a couple of reason:

1.fun to play when I have this on my xbox 360

2.got this on a sale.

But the downside:
1.30 fps lock
2.bots is bad-iah
3.story is bland.

I was so hyped for this game. I tried to get myself to like it, but I can't. The previews of this game turned out to be nothing like the actual experience. The AI in this game is a joke; bad enough to make it unplayable. You'd need actual players for it to even try to be fun, but it's dead. I've had games that I wasn't thrilled with, but I've never had one so bad I made it's own category of "Mistakes were Made".

i have mixed feelings for this game..mostly negative feelings for this game. you start off as either a security officer as part of ark security to secure and save the ark, or you play as a washed up trigger happy "terrorists" the security calls them to escape the ark. you start out mostly underpowered while everything else is a bit stronger. and bots are rather anoying when one guns you down..sits at a corner where obviously oblivious medics rush in to heal to be gunned down right in front of you, your only choice is to respawn. gameplay is pretty bad..thanks to the AI now for bonuses its rather bad that you have to do EVERYTHING and when i say everything i meen "hack this,destroy that, escort a droid to the drop of, intercept a hostage escort, etc" and the bots are practicly brain dead in terms of helping you, as they sometimes run into the enemy and shoot at anything or everything or nothing at all (that sort of thing) especially when it comes to those "training" missions were you can do level apon levels to get ingame gear that can help you in the campain. i have no hopes for this game in the possible future of it EVER having a sequel.

Loads of people hate this game. I can see why, but I absolutley LOVE it. The parkour is peerfect, the customization is awesome, not so much the maps though. I really don't like the story. I just don't get it, but overall, this game is one of the best fps I have ever played and all of the people who haven't played, really should. /spoiler better than black ops 3 8/10

The game is sadly completely dead so don't even bother since it is completely multiplayer focused. The singleplayer is just multiplayer missions with bots but the bots are broken, the fps is also locked at 30 in solo mode for no real reason.

My first official steam game, back in 2011 i decided to stop pirating stuff like cs and move onto steam, i thought this game would be a whole lot of fun but it is the first step that is troublesome:

+Visuals: Back in 5 years ago this game had great graphics, it was kind of fun to play.
+Sound work: Nice ost, nice gun sounds, this part is well done as well.
-Gameplay: the game itself is a disaster
-the main promised feature, the core of this game - parkour - is total bullsh`t, you can only *jump* and *wall run* in some areas that actually meant to be passed that way, and not all the classes can do that stuff, you know even BATTLEFIELD 3 has that kind of *parkour* and that is just sad
-no class balance and rеtаrded AI - you can stay in the middle of the hallway with machinegun shooting in the one point and bots will suicide running towards you.
-no map balance - most of the maps are one sided, you need a miracle to win for the weak side, or you enemies should be brain damaged.
-boring campaing, i want to play pve vs bots i better choose starwars battlefront, and pvp in this game is nonexistant, dead multiplayer + lame campaing.
-no steamcards

So what do we have after all: stillborn game, dead multiplayer, a lot of promises that were never implemented + this game was nearly instantly dead, for the 6 years this game got a maximum discount of 50% ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ this game is bad and abandoned by the devs long time ago. Dont buy it, its a waste of money.

This game is at the brink of extinction.
Bad puns aside, The community of this game is currently in the dozens. Get this game, and get your friends to get it.

What you're buying is a team based first person shooter consisting of two campaigns with a maximum of 8 PLAYERS cooperatively working on the battlefield with multiple objectives occuring at the same time. If your not interested in the campaign, then there are huge shootouts of balanced teams on the stages (if there's enough people). You've got a variety of customizable weapons with at least two of them suiting your playstyle. A leveling and rank system that rewards more customization options and allows you to use skills that modify your playstyle of the four different classes (With enough skillpoints to usually perfect your favorite two). Challenges to start the game off with so you've got battlefield experience (And the challenges give you weapons, mods and experience so you aren't jumping into multiplayer at level one). A parkour system that if mastered can allow some crazy combos and even hidden collectable lore. Also you can make a ton of characters should you want a different build or just to experiment.

If you've read this, just get the game already.

And sadly I like it. One of my first steam games and the idea of the parkour was nice, I liked the art style, some of the maps and costumes were good but it was dead and is still dead with no community or player base and as a team-based shooter with classes that's bad. The AI isn't bad but it's still useless and often the defenders can do a better job as their AI just all sit on choke points and your team run headlong ito them

An ambitious attempt to energize the modern FPS genre with more satisfying options for map traversal (that to this day is heavily poached, to critical acclaim); I very much wanted this game to succeed, but from anemic weaponry, to frustrating progression and horribly dodgy servers, it seemed doomed to fail.

A tragic, though vital sacrifice for the sake of game design progress.

You'd be surprised how long the game lasted. It is dead now though.

Victim of rushed development and corporate deadlines. Real shame it had a lot of potential.

I liked the story bits/general setting, audio logs and character customization was on point. But most of all the music. The few reasons I leave a like.


RIP.

Old game but still give it a shot you might like it.

The game has almost all what I need and that are PARKOUR, ACTION and CHARECTER CUSTOMIZATION.

So not that bad I really enjoy it.

Only a fraction of what was promised, and with a horrible launch that killed the game. Servers are pretty dead, though you can play with bots.

Avoid this and play Dirty Bomb instead. (Same developers)
