Truly, the most disappointing thing about this game is how much potential it had. I just don't understand how it's turned out to be so... awful. At any rate, I couldn't even be bothered to play it solely for achievements, and have already traded it back in and cut my losses. If anyone lives near Beaverton, OR, there's a pre-owned copy of Brink on the shelves at Gamestop if you want to play it a week and return it.

Good luck tolerating it for an entire week just for the sake of achievement points, though. That's about its only redeeming quality, sadly.

This was one of my most anticipated games this year. The videos made it look awesome and I had very high hopes with Bethesda's name stamped on it.
It's not a terrible game and I've had some fun playing it, but I am disapointed. The graphics are not that great and they went and gave every player the worst perk in the history of perks, LAST STAND!!!! And it takes as many bullets if not more to kill some one in last stand. Seems to me like you spend more time down and dying than actually playing in the campaign. Spawn points are horrble as well.
I do like the customization option, but again was hoping for a grander scale. More weapons and options, seems like a small amount for the hype they were giving for customization.
The free flow movement for me, is not that great in first person, sometimes it's hard to tell what your doing when close to walls or objects.
Oh well, done with my rant, here's to RAGE and Dead Island, Hope they don't disapoint as well....

One of the most rage inducing games I've ever played. Turning it in tomorrow. Thoroughly disappointed with the game, had so much potential.

Things that irritates me about the game so far:

  • The bots on the other team gets better as you level but up but friendly bots remain stupid. Also, in this game you get exp for doing almost anything which means rank does not equal skill so I have no idea why the developer choose to have this system in place.

  • There is no real single player.

  • You cannot party up with people then join matches. Which is need a feature for game like this one that focus on co-op, multiplayer, and team work.

  • How lag cause this game to be not playable with more then 3-4 people.

Most likely will sell the game once gotten all the achievements and if there is no plan for DLC with achievments.

I have only one issue and one only. The versus mode on the day 4 the dirty bomb, container map is the only one that gives me trouble and thats due to realllllllly bad lag. This so far is the only issue and only this map. Other than that this game is so much fun and i love it.

Brink sounds great on paper in my opinion just all the ideas and concepts but after 10 minutes of playing this piece of crap I wanted to throw a controller. I'm just gonna grab half the cheevos and get rid of it. Lucky for me there's only 36 achievements.

This game sucks at first, but once you get used to the gameplay and the objectives, ITS EASY AS HELL, and FUN. Me and four of my friends all played it each getting the 1K, and all enjoyed it. Although all of our initial responses were "wow this game blows" but shortly after we were all like "wow this isnt so bad, in fact were enjoying it"

NE way even if you hate it, it still is one of the easiest multiplayer based games to get the full 1K in, and its realy short maybe 12-15 hours, probally less!
...After nearly a YEAR Hiatus I'm BACK...HELL YEA!

You know what pisses me off about this shit? (Of course not, you don't my thoughts but it is a decent opener to a comment.)

The AI.
Fuck the AI and by extension fuck whoever decided to program them as complete and utter fuckwits.

You know what's also extremely irritating about it?

In the loading tips, the intro, everything, they go on and on about playing as a team and not to play as a team of lone wolves.
So why are the bastarding AI bots running about like a bunch of morons that apparently think they're playing TDM in CoD?
I'm trying to complete the objective and all they do is dick about taking command points and attacking the enemy whilst not venturing anywhere near to the actual objective to god forbid, support the person trying to complete the mission.

Then there's the enemy damage.
No. You shouldn't be able to take me down in about 5 hits when I'm playing as a heavy soldier with the Kevlar ability and buffed health.
It's just plain frustrating and tbh actually, none of the shooting is particularly interesting, it just feels bland and like it doesn't work too well.

Fuck it, tbh this could be an arcade game for all it is.
Strip out the cutscenes that let it masquerade as having any single player, cut the map sizes a bit and stick it on the marketplace for 1200MSP. (Really, it can't be that big, it has say, 10 maps [granted, they are pretty large], character stuff, weapons, cutscenes and that's about it.)

I started this game thinking it was half decent but it grew old extremely fast and by the time it got old the cracks in the game turned into vast crevices.
Might get back to decent once there have been many patches but for now it's awful.

very mad that i've been hyping up this game for 2 years now due to the fact that i loved Bethesda's other games, especially the Fallout series. it's fun if u have a party of at least 4. first day it was cool playing with friends of mine that also purchased...then we all reached lvl 10........

not only did the 3 AI characters not do SHIT (we figured hey, let them be the medics, we'll do all the other shit...), yeah, no. fuckin horrible. the opposing AI was incredibly smart, worked together & played like humans. our AI? forget it. running in circles...standing right above u & not throwing a fuckin healing syringe...anything that could piss u off, they did.

the challenges were even fuckin worse. they were no help at all. i had to create another character to even BARELY beat "Be More Objective". which remnds me, if i ever meet a Bethesda employee...i don't give a fuck if he's just a janitor...i'm punching him right in the fucking face for this game. not to mention the length of the game is retardedly short. i mean what the fuck? all this time spent on creating a "different" shooter & there's only 6 missions for each side?? what the fuck??

again, don't get me wrong, it's fun with friends. but trying to do shit solo is just not happening. if they balance out the AI, i'll be content. it's worth a rent at least, plus an easy 1k for the achievement hunters.

I really want myself to like this game, i was looking so forwards to it with the trailers made it look awesome, but in all honestly i would rather play king kong than this shit, its simply awful, there is absolutely nothing on the game that even makes you want to ever play it again, the AI is ridiculous and go the wrong direction 99% of the time, and the enemy AI down you in literally 1 second if you stand in the open, anyone who hasnt already bought this or rented it, dont do either, its a complete waste of money, the game is shit.

I hate that you can't pause in single player, it treats it like your online and the game keeps playing. When the levels last close to 30 minutes, how can you answer the phone or take dinner out of the microwave?
As mentioned, THE AI!!! Especially when you need to retrieve something and the AI keeps grabbing it and running alone then getting killed.

I really hate the second mission of the Resistance campaign. Not only does it seem to take ages to get to the part where you have to escort the guy out of there, but once you get through the Building it becomes impossibly hard, because you're pretty much expected to escort him by yourself while everyone else on your team goes after the F-ING command posts. They need to patch the game so that the A.I go after the Primary objectives ONLY.

I closest I got was right to the ramp at the very end of the, but you can't even win a 1v1 fight with the A.I on this game on hard, and when I was killed there I could get anywhere near the spot again.

EDIT: OK, I found an easy way to do it, If I keep going for the command posts, it seems to force the rest of my squad to work on the primary objective, I got to the escort part of the mission in the fastest time I have ever done it, so here's hoping that this strategy will get me through this. I don't want to break ANOTHER headset doing this mission.

I would like to bitch about the piece of shit AI on the Be More Objective challenge on the 2nd star. The fucking enemy AI camps the Hacking spot to where it is impossible to get even 5ft to it. Plus the goddamn spawn point for them is a couple steps away. They spawn about every 10 seconds after a group of 4 to 5 of them get their asses kicked. Chuck Norris couldn't beat this level...

Ya its pretty sad that it was pushed back so many times and still is this shitty. Campaign was fun before I beat it twice for each side on hard with and without playing co-op. Online will never recover because they cant fix the lag. I've been on their forums and their fix was "we've added a new big teams mode". Lol didnt do a thing. By the time they fix.... sorry if they ever fix the online by then everybody will be lvl 20s and it'll get old real quick.

I just dont understand how they try and blame it on users with "bad connections". I have cable internet and have never lagged on a single game on xbox live. And now this game comes out and its either our fault as users or microsofts servers? Its clearly one of the many game flaws

Sorry everybody just very pissed off that I waited a year for this game. Atleast we all know that Battlefield 3 will be amazing and worth the wait.

1- What is the point of having difficulty levels when the enemy AI is purely dependant on what rank you are. Im a level 16, when I play even on easy the enemies are relentless and insta-kill you with ease.

2- The stupidly low amount of ammo you start off with, i understand there are soldiers who can resupply you but the bots on your team rarely do, starting off with 1 spare magazine is not enough.

3- When you are too close to team mates you start to rubberband warp all over the place which is incredibly annoying when more than one person is on a command post or doing an objective

4- Lag while playing versus is sometimes unbearable

Glad thats off my chest now. Other than that im enjoying it.

Disapointed to say the least

First off, like many people have already said, the AI only want to capture the health command post and over and over they will fight for the stupid secondary objectives and they will never help you on the main objective. My favoriet part is when the AI will come up next to you at the main objective, start to hack along side you and then will run away after 1-2 seconds of help and get killed or an engineer places his turret facing the wall and the other teams awesome grenade tosses that never miss.

Is it only me or have others seemed to have counted more opposing team members then what you have on your team? For example, starting out trying to hack the airport terminal my team had 4 members and when i got to hack the terminal there were 6 people in the room guarding it. I have seen this happen to me more and more each new level where they seem to balance out you doing well with adding more players to the other team. Solo is far to hard on solo hard. they never miss and seem to know right where you are each and every time. Also like others have stated the AI camps in keys locations making it near impossible to complete some objectives and challenges. And yes the textures are crap! Everything is super blurry unless you sit there and wait for 2-3 seconds for the high rez one to load.

Just have to say i am very disappointed in this game and I am very sorry I wasted my money on preordering it.

Here is my list. Lag is horrible and I have 25up 13down connection. Customization is rather lacking and the resistance got bent over so hard on clothing. The operative is a complete trow away character who is only needed, and should only be played when hacking is required. The AI...if you have played this game...I need not say more. My NUMBER 1 complaint would be that the only people you can hear/talk to in multilayer are people that you personally invited to the game. WTF, SERIOUSLY this game is all about communication and PARTY play and this game takes that away???

On a side note...IDK why everyone is bitching about the chivos...this game is an EASY 1k...3/10 TOPS...

The game is basically a re-branded unreal tournament 3, although UT3 is more balanced then this game, storyline lol? what storyline just a few cut scenes and then team deathmatch gameplay. Credit where credit is due, the marketing team did a wonderful job I bought into the hype and advertising... I thank bethesda though I will now wait for reviews rather then day one. These guys seem to churn out shit these days if it's not buggy it's lacklustre.

This is easily the worst game of 2011 thus far, do yourself a favour, trade this POS for L.A Noire, that's what I'm doing. i completed the campaigns to get as much gamerscore that i could can't stomach any more. It's funny I don't remember another game were I've been so frustrated by the campaign.

The worst thing is, I anticipated the game since it's announcement because it had Bethesda on it. I knew they weren't making it, but just publishing it.

I've played it and I can say it's a let down. The concept and idea of the game is great, but the execution is just bad. The bots & AI both on your team and the opposing team are just terrible and ridiculous, as in, AI team never help you out, and opposing team AI are just aimbots on the down low.

Ridiculous. The story has no point in even following as it goes by so quick, there is actually no point in trying to keep up. Really would have been better maybe if a different development team was in charge.

ATM I have no internet so can't play over XBL but what I have played isn't worth my money.

Campaign wise solo is a little boring. The stories are the same and all you do is switch sides. So I played the Rebel first. The objectives I attacked/defended I'm not swapping them as I play as the good guys! Pointless imo. Plus all the objectives deep down are the same. Get here, grab that, plant this, defend. They could of made this so much better, if it was level based (CoD style for example) and not all the same objective shit.

Challenges.. Well I did all of them within 20mins... They could have added in way more! They weren't even that hard to!

SMART.. Love the idea but it doesn't even play a big role in the game! Most of the time when the game starts, I run to my objective and hardly or if ever use SMART.

Enemy AI is too good in some places. If they all get into one spot and start to defend its sometime near impossible to clear them out! Friendly AI just don't do much unless you're lucky and push up and do most of the clearing. Only class that seems to help do this is the Medic.

Spawning is a bitch. The countdown and all that is fine. But when you're at the last objective with 2mnis left and you die, you spawn all the way back at the start of the map! No helpful as you then have to run back to the action and then probably die again!

Overall its a nice game but the flaws are a little obvious. I like the style of it all and the customisation but that doesn't make up for the other stuff. Not worth my hard earned cash...

The AI. My god, the AI...

I was downed last night, directly in front of a medic. NO resistance help. I even waited out three respawn cycles to see if he would ever get around to it. Nothing. Just stood there stuck in place. This is just one of many examples of laughably dumb AI interactions.

Also, public multi freeplay is still unplayable. This is an "objective-based multiplayer" game. Oy vey.

AND, the fact that you can stand still and still beat the game seems me crazy.

Bummer purchase. Watched previews/trailers for it for the past year or so in anticipation too.

THIS. Best tip ever. In one match I just got tired of hearing "they're going for your command post!!" so I said fuck it, took over the command post, set a turret down and then watched the enemy AI get gunned down trying to take the command post back. Won the match.
