I made the mistake of pre-ordering BRINK. All the gameplay videos looked incredible, with the SMART movement system looking to be a game changer. However, little did I know that the technology behind the game was appalling. They decided to use idTech4 (Doom 3 engine), which I thought was questionable but I gave them the benefit of the doubt. What I didn't realise is that the singleplayer / challenges would be limited to 30fps. Fucking morons. It was a gameplay that promoted fluid movement and they crippled it to 30fps.
I'd be VERY, VERY hesitant to ever touch another Splash Damage title. I cannot recommend the game, even at the incredibly low price they're now offering.
