It's been a while since I've seen a game as divisive as Brink. The collective review hivemind usually tends to cluster around the 7-8 mark when it comes to dishing out scores, yet Brink's seemed to be all over the shop.
But it wasn't just the review scores, it was public opinion - I've heard people raving about Brink, yet I've also heard people complaining endlessly about the netcode, the texture work, the fact that the game was released in such a general sloppy state.
I haven't had the chance to play it yet - and I wonder if I'll bother considering the game's mixed reaction - but I've also sensed there's a bit of a discrepancy between the PC version, which people are praising, and the console version, which folks are tending to bitch about.
Am I wrong here? I'd love to hear what you guys think.
I'm sort of on the verge of giving it a bash. It's been a while since I've invested a decent amount of time in an online shooter. I let Battlefield Bad Company 2 pass me by, sort of drifted away from Halo: Reach and have never been a fan of Call of Duty and its various derivatives.
Is Brink the kind of game I could get into? How have you guys been liking it so far?
