    I've never seen so many butt hurt people over a game review. Get over yourself, if you like the game play it, who cares what someone else thinks about it. The only important opinion is your own.

    Yea The AI needs work but that is because during the beta the beta stages of the game the AI was to smart to for COD players and couldn't complete any of the objectives, so since it seems that all major reviewers love COD so much that they would give there heart and soul for this game maybe we should stop having G4 review anything else but COD when it comes to the FPS genre. Another problem with this review is that "The parkour system doesnt work for an FPS..." maybe if you have a mental disability then sure, it doesn't. Brink simplified it for you, the parkour in that game is look at it, just grab done. no pressing crazy buttons like in Mirrors Edge which is another good game. I think the X-play and AOTS team needs a class on review games cause the last few games that were not the Halo COD or any other major game got bad reviews. Please next time you review please actually play it cause your review sounds like another unreliable reviewer company. (IGN)

    This was, by far, the most uninformed review I've ever heard or witnessed and Morgan sounds like what a previous poster said...(a bimbo who doesn't play games and gets overpaid to talk crap with only one skill: to move her mouth too much). "I use the stairs"??!! The reason she used the stairs is because she either didn't play longer than 5 minutes (if at all) or she didn't play long enough to get lightweight body.

    Other than the issues they've had with lag (that they are currently working on) I find this game sublime. They achieved exactly what they were going for. These two sound like complete idiots supported by snorty whining. I NEVER play a medic (unless the medics are retards and think they are soldiers with syringes) as I'm seeing everyone plays like Morgan and just heals themselves and there are so many awesome other things to do besides heal yourself and point a gun. Everything works like it should (except those weak MG nests lol). As a lightweight the parkour functions perfectly. Once I went lightweight I NEVER USED THE STAIRS. And WHY NOT try to reinvent a genre?

    'recon or scout class?' you can tell they haven't played very long... I love being operative/engineer.. Once you upgrade your weapons everything 'just works'.

    Thank you for Brink. I love it... NOW HURRY UP AND FIX THE LAG

    p.s. my parkour moves and sliding techniques looked so awesome today that a teammate said it flowed like a Hollywood action movie... go team go

    Wow this sounded like a load of bull
    How about making your reviews not sound like they were directed by children ?
    Also you think the SMART system doesnt work ?
    Choke on this video then http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =lBQqD8mv0XM&feature=chann el_video_title
    There you see SMART system in full action crushing your unimformed review.
    You people have no idea what youre talking about.
    Brink is great and even if you didnt like it, you should review it with sense and not like a bunch of 10 year olds.
    "Brink is in stores now, that was information you didnt need" OHOHOHO YOU SO FUNNEH !
    Get back to little children that laugh about your lame jokes.
    "Sad Panda" ? Seriously. I didnt even know there were reviewers worse than IGN, but this ?
    Oh god.
    Who thought that putting a guy with lame jokes and some old random woman with the mentality of a child on a show to review games was a good idea ?

    My issue is that it sounds like the rant of a 12 year old....if she hates it then at least give us legit reasons why you think it sucks...this just sounds like someone with no skills, and an avid c.o.d player reviewed a game that was nothing like what she wanted....

    G4 needs to know that their words,(whether is should or shouldn't) holds weight to many pple buying games and to do a 5 minute sit down and say nearly nothing good about the game and then whine about how flawed was the "before launch" experience was on the review is a bit much for me.

    I dont care too much for a game, but I know its ambitious and it to be applauded for getting out of the box. HOpefully patches come and fix it up.
    I'm not at all mad about how aggressive they were towards the game... Just kinda shocked by it a bit.

    i love how there are a few people sticking up for morgan webb because they think shes a cute innocent little girl. first off, shes a grown freaking woman; she can handle herself. second, stick up for her all you want but it doesnt matter because it'll never change her opinion towards you. shes famous, your not, youll never hook up, get over it. third, shes not even that cute. fourth, just because shes a girl doesnt mean you should feel obligated to stick up for her mainly because her opinion is equal to anyone elses freaking opinion, theres nothing special about it.

    and what pisses me off the most is the fact that brink is an amazing game, i have a blast playing it. if your gonna go off of what someone else says about a game then you shouldnt be a gamer. a real gamer would try it out for his or herself, im out.

    This is the way you're headed with reviewing...I mean really? Really really? This.Is.Not.A.Review. This is just flatout bashing. The story, sure it isn't deep but the intent is to give the player a little background to give the game some life. And like above posters said before. Grenades are there for tactical use. Smart is there for tactical use. Classes are there for tacticle use, medic best class? sigh, versatility wins in this game because you buff eachother, your tactic is just silly. "I took the stairs" /slap. And I love the fact you adress the uselessness of SMART while an ingame clip shows you how perfect it is to get up to a platform not once but on three different occasions. And your comment about teamplay, someone plants the bomb and your teammates don't cover you? no wonder that your team fails. It is teamplay based gameplay for the love of god!

    Sure there are flaws..every.multplayer.game.h as.flawes. They get adressed in patches.

    I though leahy's review was lacking actual content, but this, oh my goodness this was just dreadfull and not informative at all.

    And the way you acted throughout the entire video ( no this is not a review). Grow up please, you acted like 10 year olds....Sad panda...really?!

    You guys ever see any of those game booth models? Do you know that they are contractually obligated to NOT talk about the games with potential customers. This make sound absolutely ridiculous for people that are representing the company and are there to promote the game, but it's true.
    The reason of course is that they have no idea what they are talking about.
    Not to bash girl gamers, I have many of them as friends on my Steam list and think the ever growing female gaming community is an awesome thing, but after this review Morgan Webb offically fell into this category of pretty faces only there to keep people viewing and not really knowing what there talking about.
    Now first let me state that most of the time I agree with most of all the G4 reviewers, but after her review last week "I think Portal 2 might be one of if not THE best game ever made....give me a break.
    Portal 2 is a fantastic game and a great sequel to the first but best game ever....do you even play games Morgan?
    And now to bash Brink so badly when the developers pretty much delivered exactly what they said they would , and this game is set up to be the next TF2! (which TF2's model has shown that this style of f.p.s is probably the worlds most popular)
    I used to think G4 was unbiased and unaffected by outside influence in the gaming industry, but now I'm not so sure.
    It's either that or Morgan has officially fallen into this category of "pretty faced bimbo's who don't even play many games let alone know anything about them enough to be paid as a professional reviewer"

    As a loyal G4 viewer I've noticed this kind of thing happening latley on numerous shows (although not to the extent of Morgan's gross misrepresentation) and it's kind of turning me off the whole channel.
    Seems like they are going the way that the mainstream PC magazine reviewers do....positive reviews only for your biggest advertisers.

    If people actually a) play this enough to get used to it, b) use teamwork (best get your friends together) c) stop comparing it to the same old/nothing new CoD, this game can be really fun. I'm having difficulty getting used to the new concept of it all, but this game is actually fun after getting the hang of it. It's not about K/D ratio, but completing objectives, or is that too foreign of a concept for you guys. There's so much more to FPS than just CoD, BF, etc. People just got so used to the same concept of FPS being released that they think that's all there is.

    I'm really saddened at how much X-Play bashed this game, even though it seemed like they didn't really play it. Seems like they just picked it up for five minutes, and then said "Time to rant about this." Also, the AI in just about EVERY game sucks.

    But, everyone has their opinion, I'm just glad I don't listen to these people for game reviews in the first place. I just wish I didn't have to see the horrid video cause of that auto play "feature".

    this game was all what they described, i consider myself to be a gamer of all sorts of games and this one, OMG did i waste money and time on it. Go ahead and buy it if you want to waste your money, but seriously i played happily for 6 hours (minus FRUSTRATING lag issues) then got bored because of the limited campaign and multiplayer, i mean come on. they are the same exact thing! I would have liked to see more variety in guns and customization of your character (like be a girl if you wanted. to appeal to the other sex) and fix the damn lag!!! in the end, i just traded this game away like a broken dream. Sorry brink! you stink!

    I don't blame people for not liking the game. Heck, i'm not even sure whether I like it or not atm. But this game doesn't fail at any of the requirments of multiplayer shooters. There is nothing wrong with the guns or shooting. The maps, while they can be confusing to the beginner, were very well built for the game. The bots shouldn't be in multiplayer, so their bad ai is moot. And all the classes other then possibly the operative are very needed. And the medic can't revive himself or others if people are fully killed, and good players will fully kill you. The engineer's damage buff is hugely useful... it turns the closest thing to a sniper rifle into a one hit kill machine. And you're not going to be to last long without a solider replenishing your ammo... There is nothing that is technically wrong with this game, and giving it such a low score really makes me question going to G4 for future reviews.

    For all you people saying to stop putting them down for the review. NO dumbies like them destroy a game in sales and it's unacceptable to sit there and put-down a good game! What really makes me mad is that there is nothing I can do when they put-it-down it for dumb things like low grenade damage! It's not supposed to that's the point! Then they continue to put-it-down it for the maps not being built around parkour no duh they aren't, it's just to help you get over obstacles you should be able to get over not jump around like a monkey with a handful of dong! I'm sorry but this review was the last straw for me I couldn't stand it when they were like "what went wrong since E3?""IDK but it's bad now." Nothing changed they apparently just didn't make it clear enough it's not CoD. Again I'm sorry but people need to know this isn't CoD and it doesn't want to be so stop reviewing it on a scale of how much like CoD it is! People have come to expect shooters to be CoD! well you know what I can't stand CoD and I love brink for going in a different direction! rant over

    I really get pissed when I read all this BS. I mean come on guys grow the hell up. Bashing Morgan and G4 for not liking this game is just ridiculous. First off Morgan didn't review the game and this game break is her personal opinion. Thats why I like G4, because you get to hear more than one persons opinion. Also if most reviewers are giving it bad scores than most likely is not very good.

    This game just didn't live up to the hype and even i'm disappointed, but the level of harassment I've been reading over poor reviews is ridiculous. I really read one of you say something about Morgans looks. WTF dose that have to do about the game. It's not just hear but all over. This crap happens all the time and it's just annoying and over all petty.

    If you like the game and want to prove them wrong then just say it. I think no one has a problem with that but the bashing gots to go. I'm a gamer and even I can step back and say it's just a game. I'd be really upset if I read some of these comments. Thats the only thing about the internet I can't stand is the double edged sword that is freedom of speech while remaining anonymous by staying behind a username. One side it's great to give you opinion without you personally being affected by any back lash other than maybe some spam. It's the other side that sucks when people attack the ones who put a face with there name.

    I used to bash the hell out of stuff but that never got my point across about why I didn't like things. I now know that the only way to get your opinion respected is to simply say why you disagree without the meaningless BS. This results in much more interesting conversations than the back and forth flaming. I don't think you have to be clean with your criticism but remember what your talking about. There will always be people (most likely kids) that will try to flame you for disagreeing but make them feel awkward for acting like a fool by pointing out the obvious like "it's only a game" or "it's just my opinion" and then move on. I swear to you it's much more fun to have an interesting and intelligent conversation with people than it is to just flame each other

    I've got to say, it sounds like she didn't even try to play the game. She didn't use SMART, only played one class, didn't use all of the weapons nor customize them... I think I'm done watching this show.

    Wow... it's pretty sad all of you complaining or dumping on her for the review. So she didn't like the game. Big F'ing deal. Either you agree or not. There is no reason to be a DB about it. You guys bitching about this all sound like a bunch children. Grow up.

    G4 is f'ing retarded. Stupid idiots. Who has a 5/5 rating system anyways?. Idiots. this "video game" station fell fast as soon as TechTV turned onto G4. Game trailers provides user scores and this got a 9.4 user score and a 7.9 GT score. they know how to review a game. idiots.

    I don't understand why everyone's so pissed off at G4. Brink's not a good game. It's not the worst game ever, but it's definitely not worth 60 bucks. I've never lagged in a multiplayer game until Brink. Glad I could get my 60 bucks back.
