  1. “]When] Brink takes off it looks like being one of the most engaging team-based scrappers around, and a blast of fresh air in a market dominated by over zealous military shooters.”

    My thoughts exactly!

  2. Now this game looks bloody brilliant. I like the view of this game, it’s not mindless violence like things such as Gears of War, you get to really see the sophisticated side about a shooter game. No, this aint about the good guys or the bad guys, you are a part of your own story. Brink, Rvolution Begins.

  3. I what this game so bad that I preordered In October just I could know that I would get the game, keep on programing guys your going great

  4. I want this game so bad that I preordered In October just I could know that I would get the game, keep on programing guys your doing great

  5. Brink is a game with the Bethesda name on it. After Fallout: New Vegas, my opinion of anyone who continues to purchase their games on release day or even release day +60 is that they must have some sort of learning disability. I’m giving this one a pass for the time being.
