I rate it 3/10. The only reason it isn't a 2 is because of it's potential. Sadly, splash did a royal job of pooping on our faces. So much for innovation. Brink is nowhere near what they advertised it to be. Personally I do not feel character customization belongs in an FPS, but since they put it there ill talk about it.Customization is horrid. You get like a dozen shirts, pants and jackets and a few hair styles and they call that customization? yea you get a few pre-made faces and you choose skin color... woopee. Didn't they have character customization at the level of choosing entire body structure like... forever ago?
Gun customization is another story, but even sadder. I LOVE customizing gun's in FPS's that offer the option. It allows for multiple ways to play. Sadly, there are almost no options. They try and hide it by giving you 4 red dots but the dot is THE SAME, they even state so when choosing. its all preference? How is it preference if it looks the same when aiming? And for the front, all you get are 6 exactly the same acting muzzle brakes with different flash area's and a silencer? k wait, you also get a forgrip or speed sling, and YAY you get drum extended or duct tape.... nice customizing... NOT. Don't even get me started on the point system. I agree with game pro. A headshot should ALWAYS be a 1 hit kill in an FPS. Shooting people sucks. There is no power in any of these guns. The medic revive isn't bad, Bad Co 2 had a revive system, the only difference is, YOU DIE IN 2-3 bullets if not 1 from a head shot. Its realistic. So many times, i will spend 2 full magazine's to kill some stupid heavy, then he gets revived. Not to mention medics have an invincibility buff and a self revive? really? Guns just don't like they should. If you enter a room and get the drop on 3-4 people, it should take 2 seconds max to gun them all down. Not 30 seconds of running around grabbing their asses to kill them. This game is horrid. Flanking options are bad and can easily be protected by a couple engineers laying down their mines. I have never felt so disapointed in my life than when i bought brink.… Expand
