APB was a massively disappointing game. I was so upset with it -- the balance was terrible, I mean, I honestly have never played a game so poorly balanced. Two guns could get you through the game with no issues at all.
The character designers, built-in image manipulators, audio tools, stuff like that were all incredibly innovative and impressive, but the gameplay itself was really upsetting. Bob, Eagles, and I had fun for a bit with it... but we were ultimately left disappointed and felt like we had wasted our money when we got through our first 10-15 hours of play (which isn't a lot for an MMO).
I haven't followed it since its initial failure, I'm not sure if it's gotten balanced and fixed or not. The game was a great concept, but it was a classic case of poor execution. Let me know if you try it and find that it's still playable after 10-15 hours.
The game was just so meh. I don't know how they spent so much money on it. Matchmaking was terrible, chase missions were terrible, griefing was rampant, and gameplay was stale. No headshots took away from any skill the game could take, guns had no recoil, and everyone's character looks 100x worse in-game than in the character creator
Actually i've been playing it the last 2 days. So far probably 3-4 hours on it. The game has improved. So far i havent really sen many people using the "stabba" gun, the leveling is little different. the starting gun is actually pretty good now. I definetly think the game should be looked into. ill keep playing and if you want me to check out anything the use to be glitchy just ask me. ill try it out
Uh, I have no idea, ill check that out later tonight and get back to you. But to give an update. so far havent seen any chase missions. The missions are sorta the same but theres so new ones. I havent gone to social district yet to customize anything yet since thats takes alot of time. But all the gameplay that wasnt that good before they have fixed. Only problem i've seen so far is the game crashed twice today. Which was a bummer but gave me a incentive to start working on School work due tomorrow.
