APB IMHO

APB IMHO - APB: Reloaded - MMORPG.com

MMORPG.com's Angela Webb writes this report of her brief time spent playing APB at a recent press event. Please note that this is not a full game preview, but a first impressions preview based on a few hours of gameplay.

All Points Bulletin is a new action MMO from Realtime Worlds, a development company based in Dundee, Scotland, which also created Crackdown. APB, which launches on June 29, 2010, takes place in the fictional world of San Paro, a living city where its players are in a constant struggle to rule the streets. This game is not really about cops and robbers, but rather a game where players can either be "the bad" or "stop the bad". Players choose to be either Enforcers or Criminals. Enforcers are players who strive to maintain a sense of order by, ironically, using violence to stop the Criminals, who want to be left alone to mark their territories and take what they please.

Last week I visited Realtime Worlds' new home office in Boulder, CO, and I was able to play the game for a couple of hours. Now experienced MMO players know that two hours is not enough time to properly review/preview a game of this nature. Also, no new news was released during my visit, so what I'm going to do instead is tell you about my short exposure to the game, including some observations about character creation, before talking about the meat of APB.

Read APB IMHO.
