First off I must say that I have recently purchased this game via Gamestop's Buy two Get One Free Deal and I must admit that It was well worth the price of free! The game story seems to be extremely vague and boring.It lacks In many departments, For example screen tearing and excessive frame rate drops as your shooting. A positive about this game would be that its easy Gamer score If your an Achievement whore much like myself. You will unlock achievements for just about anything such as completing missions to detonating a bomb on an opponent and capturing enemies command centers. The game truly feels like a single-player multi-player game. Now I know that doesn't make any sense but since most of the time your offline It gives an impression that Brink doesn't have the multi-player capability. The controls feel extremely loose which reminds me a lot of Dark void released in 2010 by Capcom, Those of you who played Dark void will know how frustrating the controls were to aim and even shoot at your enemy. My overall verdict of Brink Is that If Betheseda took more time to develop this game and focused more so on the core gameplay and story writing the game would greatly appreciated by us gamers instead of being overlooked by other games In the same genre.
