The City of San Paro is not host to a traditional MMO, though you could be forgiven for the confusion. Realtime Worlds has created a game with more similarities to the Free Roam of Grand Theft Auto than World Of Warcraft, and this differentiation is to the games credit. The gameplay is fast, brutal and lacks the intimidating grinds and level caps that would normally be associated with any game asking for a monthly subscription. I know that reviewing an MMO at launch is normally frowned upon s...
You might remember another game called APB, it was released over a decade ago and played vaguely like the first GTA. In the second incarnation of the name, developer Realtime Worlds created a MMO which has been marketed remarkably well too seem like a persistent world version of Grand Theft Auto 4. It wouldn't be a shock to many that this is in fact far from the truth, and ends up being so disappointing that you'll be hard pressed to use up the 50 hours of added free game time. When reviewing g...
Liquid Looks at APB... When does reviewing a game that takes hundreds of hours to reach the end, and is constantly changing though content patches, appropriately reviewable?

I doubt...
APB: Reloaded is a game that completely puzzles me. It begins with a fantastic cutscene illustrating the clan warfare between the Criminals and the Enforcers. So far, I'm psyched! But then the game started, and everything went to shit. If it isn't the learning curve, the pay2win gunplay, the "just do sh*t" mission style, or the controls that turn you off, it's the driving, the matchmaking, and just about everything else. This game is BEYOND unfinished.Fun: 4/10 --- You will enjoy this game every...
Playing APB Reloaded seems very similar to someone trying to look on the bright side of tumbling down a flight of stairs; sure the brief free-fall might be a thrill but it's certainly not worth the pain and anguish that comes with the experience. APB is littered with bugs and simply tries to be too many things at once, but if you're willing to endure the hurdles that this experience throws at you, including taking the proper steps to prevent the game from crashing when you first install it, and ...
