    All Points Bulletin has improved drastically from its original launch but isn't necessarily the MMO Grand Theft Auto we've been looking for.

    There is fun to be had on the streets of San Paro though, and as the price of entry is precisely zero, there's absolutely no reason not to give it a try.

    APB Reloaded comes with new locations, a better gameplay and a new free-to-play format that lets you play for hours without spending anything, though you have to buy something in order to be more competitive.

    Reloaded has recreated APB, but reined in its ambition. Most of the same problems are here, but for a better price. [Mar 2012, p.70]

    This isn't a great game, it's not even a good game, but it is the closest thing we've got to a cops-and-robbers MMO - which is, I suspect, one of the all-time great video game concepts. One day, somebody's going to do it right, and they're going to become very rich indeed.

    Although APB has a few good ideas, the execution just isn't fun enough. It presents itself as an online Grand Theft Auto, but in its core is nothing more than deathmatch in an open world. Shooting isn't balanced well, and the number of missions is so limited that it becomes a bore really fast.

    The original release of the game was an interesting (but not great) concept hobbled by atrocious execution, and it seems like the people who went in trying to rescue it have managed to make things worse in an overall sense. There was little to recommend the original game. There's even less to recommend it's second act.

Alone it's not as fun but still it is. Being a nice change to other Free 2 play MMOs. There were alot of bugs in the earlier version but they are mostly fixed. New patches and updates are coming so the game won't get boring for a while. The game looks good and even with minium settings. Expand

This game is not P2W atInsanely Fun game, I have around 700+ hours into this game. New Anti-cheat system, 212 hackers gone the first day. This game is not P2W at all. I've seen teams get ruined by the starting gun. I have a friend who forced himself to use nothing but the pistol, he started out horrible, now he takes out entire groups with just the pistol.

    This game is about skill and practice. You will not jump in and be the greatest shooter on the planet. You will lose, you will rage, you will either sink or swim. I recommend not getting this game If you have anger issues. I am not the greatest player, I lose a lot , but I still have fun. It is those close matches where you really enjoy the game.

    The customization in this game is on an entirely different level. You can pretty much make anything... I am a ninja turtle with a shotgun. I created the turtle van. I've seen some really great designs in this game. There really is no other game that can match this type of customization.

    They are working on improving the matchmaking system, and will be upgrading the game engine soon as well. It's definitely worth checking out.

    APB Reloaded is extremely fun. The only thing keeping it from a perfect 10 is the Joker tickets and rented guns. It's nearly impossible toAPB Reloaded is extremely fun. The only thing keeping it from a perfect 10 is the Joker tickets and rented guns. It's nearly impossible to get Joker tickets unless you buy them with real money, and the amazing guns are only allow you to have them for 7 or 8 days! That's kind of ridiculous. Overall, its a great game that is very fun. Expand

    The lag is terrible, I can play a lot of other games and they're fan on medium/low graphics, but APB , makes my computer crash, I never had to shut off my computer for any game (Unless it was a CD, and it needed to be shutdown so that it could load) I mean seriously, the graphics aren't even that great. And the tutorial took some time for me, If they actually cut out the lag, and make everything easier to understand, i'd totally give this game a 9/10.

    So I have a few pro's and cons of the game. I played a decent amount and I have to say that 26 hours is actually a bit. So here's my review!So I have a few pro's and cons of the game. I played a decent amount and I have to say that 26 hours is actually a bit. So here's my review!
    Pros-
    Really fun to play with your friends and your teammates! Game requires strategy and thinking. You need to work with your teammates to achieve an objective. You can ride vehicles! But only cars. This game is similar to GTA 4! Open world!
    Cons-
    The game physics are horrible! When you ram into someone with a car they don't get sent flying, instead they just go over your car and end up where they started. Another thing is when you ram a car into another car it takes forever to knock them over! And when you finally manage to do that they just go right back straight up! The community itself is horrible. Down right awful! There are people going around naked/almost naked and the thought of them being guys behind a computer screen is rather disturbing.
    Most of the higher ranked players will demolish and I say DEMOLISH you. Having access to better and modified guns is unfair for the new player. They are able to get the rocket launcher, grenade launcher, they have an over powered Tommy Gun which you need to be premium to get! Lag is a serious issue with this game, it can get really bad. And almost everyone uses the shotgun! Just like the AA-12 in MW3 they spam it faster then sonic can jerk off so it's almost impossible to get to your objective with your team with everyone else is camping and shooting their little shots. Also the unfair match making is really getting on my nerves. When I was just a beginner I was frustrated when I went up against gold rank players. The chat bar itself is full of shazbot! You see all the crying and the community is a little to hard core. Wait did I say a little? I mean a lot. I got kicked just because I made a wrong turn to get to an objective and I said whatever. Conversation went a little like this,
    Me: I'm not a great driver just letting you know
    Leader: You **** suck you scrub (18+ guy btw)
    Me: Umm okay? Look dude it's just a game just chill?
    Leader: Make a **** right!
    *Insert image of a fast speeding race car coming at you while you drive a mini van and you make a left turn*
    Me: Man that was kind of close
    Leader: Are you **** retarted? Me: No I'm just saying that car almost hit us derp.
    Leader: Just go for the objective.
    Me: Alright man, whatever.
    Leader: Did you just say whatever?
    Me: *Getting a little ticked off* Yeah so what? Is there a problem?
    Leader: *Kicks me out of the group*

    I just need to say that out of everything this game is kind of like GTA 4 like I mentioned earlier. But unlike the GTA universe this game is a little different. Griefers are everywhere! You drive a car and then they crash into you making your car tip over. The enemy gets out of a car right behind you and throws a grenade. Before you can get back up your dead. I know all games have griefers but really? I liked the idea of a massive multiplayer open world idea but this is a major problem. Sometimes the game feels like it's missing something. With all the npc's that look the same it just doesn't feel right. The game feels bare. And pop up distance, when you drive you can only see about 50 meters or 30 meters away! When you drive or even walk you can't expect what's coming next when a speeding race car just pops out and just rams into you. The guns, I have no problem with but the feel just isn't right to me. I normally use the Sub-Machine gun because I find it it's the most easy to use, but unlike GTA 4 when you zoom in into a sniper rifle scope you don't see cross hairs. Instead you just look over your shoulder which just frustrates me because when I snipe and take cover behind a wall I shoot the wall instead of the player coming towards me. I know I'm comparing this to GTA 4 in most cases but this is just a GTA wanna be. It's a shot to the face and I can see why the score is so low. At first it was fun but then it just gets on your nerves. I just can't stand the game mostly because of the community which is just a shot to the face! I give this game a 3/10 at best. Even if this is a good idea it has to many flaws. The 'open world' is misused because you can't go into most buildings and the graphics aren't that great (I know this maybe good for people who have low graded graphic cards but can't they put an option to create high-def graphics?) This game needs a lot of work, I'd like to never play this game again because this is to stressful. APB Reloaded, I have to say I'm not happy. Not happy at all.

    Great concept, terrible gameplay. When I was on a tutorial mission it put me up against a higher rank player with better gear... What kind ofGreat concept, terrible gameplay. When I was on a tutorial mission it put me up against a higher rank player with better gear... What kind of game will do this to a player? The answer is, a poorly designed game. I give it a 1 out of 10 because the mechanics are just broken. When I go into detail about this I will explain, the basic gun sucks, this is fine and all but in order to upgrade the gun you gotta complete missions, you cant complete missions if you cant kill the enemy and your team only does so much. On top of this its a run and gun game, aiming means very little if everyone is constantly moving, most of the time the smgs are the #1 gun because they fire quickly and can be just as accurate and damaging as an assault rifle while on the move. Stay away from this game, I am giving it a 1 out of 10 because the mechanics are just broken, any game is better than this... Expand
