About the 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?


  • 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.

This is probably one of the most underrated games of the 21st century. I picked it up back on the PS3 originally, and despite it's flaws at launch such as mediocre AI and minor lag, (issues that were improved later into the games life) it was an absolute blast to play. The varying levels of customization were great, spanning all the way from weapons to the character itself. Not only that, but all the maps played well and looked absoulutely georgeous. The gameplay was a refreshing change to what you experienced in most FPS games at the time, with fun and flamboyant free running moves that not only looked great but were simple to execute. However, because Brink was developed by 'Splash Damage' and not 'Infinity Ward' websites such as IGN and Gamespot gave it a 6, slamming the game for it's poor AI and repetition. Sure I'd accept that if this was a game that based itself around singleplayer rather than multiplayer gameplay, but marking it down for repetition when video games such as Modern Warfare 2 get given 9's is ridiculous.

At the end of the day, this was a game that had it's head put on the block before it even got released. Sure, it's far from perfect, but it's as good as your going to get if your looking for a multiplayer FPS that's a little different from the norm.

This is an underrated gem. It's got great controls, unique mechanics, awesome gunplay, excellent character/weapon customization and hell you can even lean left or right.

It's been shunned by the majority of gamers because of its abysmal launch, and instead of trying it now that it's been fixed and is updated, it just gets ignored. It's like six bucks right now, go ahead and try it out. Maybe if people stop being snobby ♥♥♥♥♥, there could be some sort of revival in this.

Seriously, you have games like this and Shattered Horizon die, and Call of Tacticool: Advanced B.S. getting annual releases. Stahp it.

BRINK is a fast-shooter, unlike Splash Damage pervious games like Quake Wars Enemy Territory and Wolfenstein Enemy Territory, Brink relies more on movement called SMART (Smooth Movement Across Random Terrain) aka parkour-style movement(founded by the french).

Like Wolfenstein ET and Quake Wars, Brink is somehow a mix of old-school gunplay with modern mechanics, brink is an Objective-Based game, that relies on teamwork, there are four character classes to choose from, for beginners i recommend playing as a medic, becasue that's where you will learn to help your team, you can customize in a lot of variety from your character to your weapons, there also perks too

The online multiplayer servers hold up to 16 players, players can play cooperatively or competitively, or against AI bots, playing with your friends or strangers online will help boost your level, because playing online helps you gain bonuses.


The campaign is somehow scripted because of cutscenes and few voice acting i mean characters that we dont know who they are. But on the other hand Brink has a rich storyline and rich universe, but the campaign wasn't told in proper way

Overall, Brink is a good game, if your a fan of Wolfenstein ET and Quake Wars, and if you want to try something different from other shooters than this would be a game just for you :)

Note: The game servers are down so that means no more MP :( -as of 21st July 2014-

I was one of the few who enjoyed this game, but don't bother picking it up now, the community is dead.
