About Brink

A man-made floating city called the Ark, made up of hundreds of separate floating islands, 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 a refuge for humanity. With 25 years of social unrest, the inhabitants of the Ark have reached their breaking point. It's up to you to decide the future of the Ark and the human race. Brink is an immersive shooter that blends single-player, co-op, and multiplayer gameplay into one seamless experience, allowing you to develop your character across all modes of play. You decide the role you want to assume in the world of BRINK as you fight to save yourself and mankind's last refuge for humanity. Brink offers a compelling mix of dynamic battlefields, extensive customization options, and an innovative control system.

Summary

The parkour-style approach to this team-based shooter is not unique enough to overlook its lack of an authentic campaign, broken maps, and terrible A.I.

We like

  • The original art style
  • The parkour S.M.A.R.T. system
  • The well-integrated online/offline play

We dislike

  • The poor A.I.
  • The maps and objectives create frustrating choke points
  • The lack of any genuine campaign or story

See PSU's review on Metacritic & GameRankings

The first-person shooter market is as saturated as a slimy dish rag. In its current state there isn’t much use to add yet another run ‘n gun title into the mix, but every once in a while a developer rings it out just enough to add their own flavour to the proceedings. The problem is it’s still the same old rag we’ve played with for far too many years, and the big guns leave little room for anything new ...
