As Expected Brink reviews Hit and Miss Mainly Miss


[link to this post]
 
So the reviews of Brink have been Flooding in and they are a mixed bag to say the least,there are a few 4/5 and the odd 9/10 but i would say the majority are more like the review from IGN and that was a 6/10.

Time and Time again we are led to believe that a developers game is going to be something special only to find out by the review scores its average at best.

Another game that looks like a contender for the bargin bin department sooner rather than later judging by the scores.

Still i will check it out i might find that its better than expected.

And as i have been saying THIS sums it up for me regarding Sony and there online problems.

As i have said in a previous post just imagine this Sony Problem if it had happened this November at the time of COD MW3 and Battlefields 3.....Oh my God the revenue that they and the developers would lose and the amount of people that would have jumped on the Xbox 360 band wagon............The mind Boggles.

Having said that i bet you that Sony would have had there online in place or would have made promises if this was the week of the Big Hitters been released.

Always check this SITE for the review scores from both the gaming press and the users.....

Its not all that bad but i expected a lot better when i watched previews of the game and the developers telling us this is going to be something special,i understand that they are going to say positive things about the game but the game don't match the pre/rendered videos and the graphics look dated at best.

The reviews (more what they said not the scores) tipped me off the fence towards a "skip" than a "buy", i'm enjoying other games mostly indie and my old stomping grounds of APB than main titles.

If brink has a community left by the time its on a crazy cheap sale i might pick it up, but i smell death around it like i smelled with quake wars, concept is good, just the play base can't fit into it and leaves. The destructoid review pretty much sums up how i feel about it in the end lines, something like the guy reviewing it loves it beyond its faults, but if someone wants to dislike it then he can perfectly accept that as their faults are valid. Obviously in my case i dislike like its execution, but if people actually enjoy it i can accept why they enjoy it, it is probably good fun, just not for me at this time.
