APB: All Points Bulletin

Game.ie
30 August 2010
  • Summary: It has often been said that MMO titles begin as works in process and are then gradually kneaded into shape by their developers post release as player data and feedback is collected and trends, bugs and glitches are identified… Well hopefully that proves to be the case with APB, because unfortunately the initial state of the game is a little less than impressive after all the hype, expectations and enjoyable preview time.

  • Excerpt: Every kid loves playing Cops and Robbers: the thrill of the chase, the shootouts, the excitement of breaking the rules versus the satisfaction of bringing lawbreakers to justice. This is exactly what Realtime Worlds aim to convey in APB. As we mentioned in our Hands On Preview , this isn’t a typical MMO. What APB has tried to create is a Persistant Online Shooter (POS), a gunfire-soaked city where gangs of rival players can duke it out indefinitely. To what end, you ask?

APB: All Points Bulletin

AV Club
19 July 2010
  • Excerpt: APB: All Points Bulletin sounds like such a great idea. The game wants to take the basic trappings of Grand Theft Auto (urban setting, driving, shooting, and free-form exploration) and mix in a little massively multiplayer online influence to create a unique cops-vs.-criminals environment where players can run wild with heavily customized characters. That might be a great playground, if the game truly worked.

APB Review

GameSpot
9 July 2010
  • Summary: APB delivers periodic awesomeness, but fundamental imbalances and repetitive objectives make this persistent-world shooter a tough sell.
  • Pros: Fantastic customization options let you stand out from the crowd, Occasionally incredible moments of team-based action, The backup system is a great idea, Rewards come at a smooth pace
  • Cons: Fundamental imbalances and flawed matchmaking lead to lots of frustration, Missions get very repetitive, very fast, Shooting and driving are both under par, Broken voice chat

  • Conclusion: There's a chance APB is for you. It gives you the tools to make you and your fellow players stand out in an otherwise conventional city. It provides opportunities for explosive moments of driving, gunning, and exploding. But the joys are too infrequent and the frustrations are excessive, while the returns on your investment aren't as high as what you would hope for from a persistent-world action game.
  • Pros: Fantastic customization options let you stand out from the crowd, Occasionally incredible moments of team-based action, The backup system is a great idea, Rewards come at a smooth pace.
  • Cons: Fundamental imbalances and flawed matchmaking lead to lots of frustration, Missions get very repetitive, very fast, Shooting and driving are both under par, Broken voice chat.

  • Conclusion: Confused and weightless, APB doesn’t satisfy on any front: the shooting, driving, story and objectives are all sub-par.
