I beat the campaigns on hard (mostly with bots, friends joined in later), as I typically go for the most difficult and scale down if need be. I dabbled in multiplayer objectives/deathmatches when it was up a bit with a couple buddies who snagged it and it was alright, not outstanding. As how I play it, I play tactically not how you're assuming I do, I love objectives opposed to deathmatch and I don't really run and gun, I typically play medic/support (I preferred Light Medic), which did have fun play mechanics, and find flanking/vantage points. After campaign, we pretty much just dicked around in multiplayer, and I decided I wanted my 60 bucks to buy something else.Wandrecanada said:While I admit Brink is not for everyone I must say that you didn't play it long enough to fully figure out what makes the game unique and fun. Sure you might have beat the campaign mode but how did you beat it? Against bots? Easy or Hard? Versus humans? With friends?AngelicSven said:Brink...
The good, it's not CoD and that is truly what's great about it. The style and feel of the game were refreshing and nice. Despite what everyone says, I found the AI to be similar to everything else, dumb of course but rarely. SMART is a cool concept but usually unnecessary and occasionally runs you into stuff. The HUD didn't bother me.
The bad, pretty much everything else. I found it excruciatingly boring and easy even when it's trying to be hard, everything's really samey to something I've played before. The classes aren't really varied and there's a plethora of games that have done this much better. I do really like the art style and the customization though, too bad they couldn't give us 3 female models in addition though, strange for a game that boasts its insane customization to drop a gender. The skill sets were odd, why could I not shoot a grenade on the ground unless I have this arbitrary point?
I played it, beat it, and took it back yesterday. Thankfully I had my receipt so I got a full credit back. :3
Brink takes longer than a day to learn and by your samey comment I know immediately that you were playing it like a standard shooter. While you can easily equip all your weps with an RDS and stand at range firing from a camped position Brink does far more. I'm pretty sure there's not a single other shooter out there that lets you vault over a ledge, kick an enemy over and shoot him without actually breaking stride.
You're probably just the wrong kind of player for Brink and that's fine. I'm just certain there's a lot of game you missed by simply playing it like a something it's not.
Where'd you get a day from? It was released the 10th, but my local shop broke street date and I got it on the 8th, I played it for 6-8 days, easily enough time to find enough of Brink to hook me with something, it just didn't. You shouldn't be so assuming or passive aggressive about it, just because I didn't like a game you did.
