BRINK

brinkBrink was released May 10, 2011 by Bethesda. The game was developed by Splash Damage. Brink is a first person shooter.

A man-made floating city called the Ark, made up of hundreds of separate floating islands, is on the brink of all-out civil war.

Originally built as an experimental self-sufficient and 100% “green” habitat, the reported rapid rise of the Earth’s oceans has forced the Ark to become a refuge for humanity.

With 25 years of social unrest, the inhabitants of the Ark have reached their breaking point. It’s up to you to decide the future of the Ark and the human race

The game starts by offering the player the choice of saving the Ark or escaping the Ark. This gives the game more variety than the usual single plot most games provide.

The game offers many elements of a RPG in the customization of the player’s character. There are many options to customize the character for multiplayer appearances. The game’s main focus is with internet play.

There are 4 classes of player: Soldier, Medic, Engineer, and Operative. This is similar to Alien Swarm and other games.

The Soldier resupplies teammates, can throw Molotov cocktails and flash-bang grenades, and can complete destroy objectives by using explosives.

The Engineer buffs his teammates’ weapons and can supply them with armor, builds stationary turrets and plants landmines, and can complete repair and build objectives.

The Medic heals teammates, revives downed teammates, and buffs their teammates’ health.

The Operative interrogates fallen opponents to get intelligence on enemy locations, performs acts of sabotage, and disguises himself as the enemy.

The game operates a lot like your typical console title. Shooting enemies with over a couple of magazines is needed to keep him from reviving. This suggests the game is not well tuned relative to the PC style of game play.
