Excerpt: Years from now, APB will be used in classes around the globe as text book material. Educators will point out how even the greatest ideas in the world can burn and die at the pyre of poor implementation. The real tragedy is that once I understood what Realtime Worlds was attempting to do I found myself rooting for APB .
Summary: APB is an MMO whose gameplay is MIA. Despite being crafted by a development staff whose members have notched the original Grand Theft Auto and Crackdown on their belts, APB ranks as one of the year's biggest disappointments.
Pros: Extensive customization features, Supports up to 80 players per action area
Cons: Tedious missions, Little sense of character progression, Poor shooting mechanics
