Is brink worth it?


No,it's easily one of the worse games I've ever played,and I've played some shitty games.

Edit: I realize I should give you some reasons why it sucked.
The AI. You're teammates are retarded and useless. They can't help you catch objectives,nor do they help hold off the other team while you try to catch an objective. It's basically you vs 6 other AI (I think that's how many). Plus the other team is always 10000x times smarter then yours once you get into the later levels,which reminds me,the first half of this game is insanely easy,then the last half is hell because of your dumbass teammates.

I hope this helps you out,cause this game is really not worth $5.

Why do you hate your nephew:-?

Nah. He's just not a picky kid when it comes to games. He just likes to play. I just wish the damn price would change so I can go to bed already.

Yeah I know, worst case scenario is he doesn't play it. He would probably think "I have a cheap uncle...I want the care package!":lol:

Is brink worth it?

Everyone will have a different view on the game. I bought it day one and wasn't too happy with it. But for $5, it's worth a shot.

Does he like to die a lot and be really frustrated his AI is dumb one minute and then brilliant the next? That is my impression of Brink. I tried to like it but it just never felt fun to me.

haha. We usually get him a game or 2 for Christmas, but I figured for $5, what the hell. It will give him something new to play over his 3 day weekend.

I'm pretty sure you can go to bed and still find it available in the morning once the price changes.

Your probably going to be waiting awhile if BB decides to change the price around 3:20AM eastern time like they did a few days ago with Splinter Cell 3D.

QFT.

The only AI that can compete with Brink's is Sheva's from RE5.

...

Yes. It combined with the Security side of the campaign was THAT bad.

Regardless I ended up enjoying Brink way more than I should have for $10 so at $5 I'm crazy enough to say it's a steal and drop a preorder for the sequel.

 

Stop trying to Scooby-Doo this. We're not going to solve this mystery for you.

Ahhh Brink, the game where your enemies are dumb as rocks and blind as stones for the first 95% of the mission, and god damn Uber geniuses with eagle vision and pinpoint accuracy for the last 5% of the mission. Asshole game.

Yes. Best Buy has moved their web servers to American Samoa, so Friday's deal starts when it's Friday... in American Samoa.

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

I had such high hopes for this game when it was first announced. Too bad it ended up sucking. Even at $5, this is not much of a deal.
