    lol what a strange thing. Maybe they have decided to rerelease the steam version?

    The video above, Xbox version looks NOTHING like that. Textures popping and no AA its horrible looking.
    Do or do not. There is no try.

    Ok I've only managed to snatch an hour or so with Brink so far and here are my initial thoughts. I played one match solo with bots on normal difficulty, they were ok generally apart from the capturing objectives etc but that is well documented. They did actually heal me and buff me which was good. In online mode I had about 3 full matches in total when you allow for joining mid game etc. I found the experience quite good although there was one or two difficult bottlenecks to overcome. On one occasion I also came across crippling lag/rubber banding, but when I quit and rejoined another game it was fine. I found that levelling was done quite quickly, at the end of my hour I reached level 5 and had unlocked quite a few costume pieces. I think the amount of customisation has been over exggerated quite a bit. I don't know how many of the guns i unlocked as I forgot to check. Oh I've not found much use for the smart system yet either. Maybe that opens up abit more once you unlock the light body type.

    Overall I'm enjoying the game so far. Need to spend abit more time with it though before I know for certain.

    So I got my copy today, still creating my character though. Anyone up for it later?

    EDIT: Well... lags and my Xbox just hangs itself up... Glad I practically got it for free.

    Had my first experience with the lag today and it's a shame they've done nothing to fix is as it ruins quite a fun game.

    I played the first two campaign missions and I had no idea what was actually going on. Sure, the backstory was explained and I also watched the tutorial video for 1000 XP, but I had to find out myself how everything works. (Yes, I could've read the manual, but usually there should be a little intro for each class and what button you have to press to run.)

    Still haven't played it, not sure I'll get the chance. Going to list my PAX promo stuff on eBay to get some E3 cash together... I'm still not sold on the game, even though I was totally sold on it until it actually came out!

    I had Brink for a little over a week, and my overwhelming reaction was disappointment.

    No question about it, the ideas behind Brink made it a title I wanted to own day one. The free-running, the class based FPS mechanics, the customization, online campaign. Awesome.

    Now I didn't have a ton of matches, but between playing on my gamertag and my friends I must have been involved in 12+ online games (some freeplay, some campaign) and every single one of them lagged. One or two were totally unplayable.

    I also found the maps a little frustrating. Certain objectives were easier for one side than the other, which was very evident while trying out the campaign mode for the Security Forces. And while the trailers leading up to the release promised open free running environments I instead found a lot of confined spaces and not as much scope for free-running as I'd hoped for.

    Creating my character for both sides was fun, and seeing the other items I could unlock as the game progresses is great encouragement to play through the various modes on offer. I also enjoyed trying out the various classes, with the Engineer being my favourite.

    Watching your score increase as you turret annihilates your enemies never gets old!

    The way the game scores is pretty neat too. The scoreboards show your score, not your amount of kills. The developer wanted you to work towards the levels objectives by dishing out the points as you defend the escort or blow up a certain point instead of just trying to get the most kills in every round.

    I know patches are incoming to hopefully sort the issue of lag, but in today's world you've got to get those fixes out quickly. I'm sure I'm not the only one who's said goodbye to Brink and hello to L.A. Noire.

    Perhaps in the future I'll pick Brink back up again. As mentioned, the right ideas are there, it's just some aren't realized to their true potential.
