GAME REVIEW – First 15 Minutes of APB Reloaded

An uninspired FPS MMO? I think most likely. For those who are seasoned in the FPS Grand Theft Auto series would most likely be disappointed. The uninspired graphics and play style could be more-of-the same.

I found the game a bit wonky to get into, the tutorial is a figure-it-out-as-you-go style, that isn’t super helpful. A bit of intuition can get you going.

The real action started when I realized I could start killing other players as they do missions… that’s when the real fun began!

PCGAMER.com said: “Most of APB’s problems remain in Reloaded. It even inherited a few new ones, as it is currently seeded with cheaters. The original game was arguably killed too soon, so the switch to free-to-play means interested parties should at least take a weekend city break back to San Paro. But this is no revitalisation – APB Reloaded is rehash, replication, and repetition.”

RockPaperShotgun.com said: “Presented as Grand Theft Auto meets MMO it had neither the confidence of the former nor the lifespan of the latter. It was ambitious but also doomed. Poor driving controls, humdrum shooting matches and a lack of variety couldn’t save it from the ire of heartless critics, myself included, not even when Realtime Worlds collapsed and the game was bought and relaunched as APB Reloaded.”

Roll GREED. This game is more of the same. BUT! It’s free!
