Well, I finally got to play Brink. I haven't played a lot, still haven't tried multiplayer ( I am very indecisive when it comes to character customization; most of my time has probably been spent tweaking my appearance ). Here are some of my thoughts so far, though.
First off, the AI is pretty bad. Or, rather, my suspicion is that it's no worse than in other games, it's simply that because the game requires more of the AI than shooting bad guys, it gets tricky. Still, so far it hasn't been anything I haven't been able to handle.
Having said that, the rest of the game, at least what I've seen, is solid. Customization is ... overwhelming, and while I don't like how easy it is to unlock new weapons ( I basically lost interest in Black Ops the moment I unlocked the last weapon; I like having something to work toward ), but at least there is a huge selection with an even bigger selection of attachments, with multiple versions of the same part for maximum customization. I definitely approve.
As for the action, I can see why people used to two-shot kills might find it ... I don't know, unusual? Slow? Tedious? Personally, I like the fact a twitchy headshot won't put a guy down instantly. It's not a game that lends itself to sniping, either, so that's good. Did I mention the most awesome weapon in existence is in the game? It goes by the name of Kross, and is based on the Kriss. Super V, that is. Also known as Vector. SCIENCE + WEAPONS.
Honestly, my biggest gripe is that I can't decide which side I prefer, how I'd like my character to look, and so on.
