40min .. woah.

Posted by Jais

Isn't this game a huuuge download?

Posted by forevertorn

Nice!

Edited by zonerover

And the train wreck begins...
 
Edit: Seems like a pretty poor GTA clone, just with a monthly fee. Combined with the overly vast range of payment options as explained on the Bombcast, this seems like a poor purchase.

Hmmm.

Doesn't look too bad.

Dunno how comfy I am with the idea that Madden is wanted for a LemonParty.

For anyone wondering, the first song played on the radio is "1901" by Phoenix.

finally it came!!

jeff: you had a hat there for a sec bro. also, these AI in this game is terrible. they run from cars but if you are running at them with a shotgun, they dont bat an eyelash. this game looks horrible. also let me get this straight: you have to pay to play an instanced game? this isn't even open world and its pay to play? this is HORRIBLE.

i think theres a apb out.

Posted by fusiondogg

i love phoenix! Game not looking great so far though.

Posted by cooljammer00

They must really dig Phoenix in APB land.

Posted by dvorak

I actually really enjoy playing this game. Just got to play with people you know.

Posted by Newjack

Doesn't look awful but that driving camera is messing with my head.

Posted by Jeffk38uk

I'm reminded of the experience in the beta, man I was a bit disappointed on the decisions they made on, well, everything, and it has promise too and a pretty decent customisation system. But the press F for everything, floaty car controls and bad combat setup makes it all ehhh.
 
Still, fun to watch this quick look.

GET XBOX JOHN MADDEN!

Posted by heatDrive88

Well this looks terrible.
Posted by Splodge

I have been playing this a bit, and I find when you have a good few players online and you are rolling around in a sizeable gang its a lot of fun.

Posted by dvorak

If anyone who had a few friends playing recorded a video it would look a lot more fun.

Posted by Besetment

Nearly 20 minutes in and the highlight of the video so far was Pendulum on the radio. This looks like a bad GTA. Hopefully they'll get in a party and do something a little more interesting, or i don't know if I can keep watching this.

The driving looks terrible!!!

Posted by Chris2KLee

Yes! Been waiting for this one, let the beatings begin!

Posted by CitizenKane

Nice.  I'll watch them when I go home to eat lunch before I get down into NCAA Football 11.  :)

Posted by Splodge
@Besetment: The radio is supposed to be run by the player. It hooks up to LastFM. You set the music yourself. 
 
They dont seem to understand the basic rules of the game though. The reason you cant interact with teh criminals is because they have to commit crimes in fornt of you, or be involved in the same mission you are. The main problem with this quick look is that they are not grouping up with people. Its a multiplayer game, and you need to be in a party to get the full impact.

Why do you care?
Posted by TheClap

P is for Phoenix apparently

Posted by sixghost

Eesh, doesn't look so great.

Edited by Aeterna

Before even watching the video I know that they're going to butcher this game. 
Party up and play smart and you'll have a great time. 
 
Edit1: Look at the map to see where you objective is and how you can get there fastest.

Posted by Mystyr_E
@x7eleven:  cause there's a quest for posting first on a new video
Posted by Shibbles

Dude, Phoenix playing in the car radios? This game was totally made by the Crackdown guys.

Posted by Kratch

It's sad.  This could have been so great, but it looks like they forgot to put a fun game in their game.

Posted by bunnymud

I'm enjoying the game so far.  Also, here are a few thing they are working on atm:
 
 

Cheaters

Catching and removing cheaters from the game remains our top priority. Expect further news on this soon.

Vehicle Handling

We're already underway on a major overhaul to vehicle handling to make cars more responsive and less slippy overall. You'll still be able to power slide around corners in stylish fashion, but steering is more responsive overall and easier to get the hang of early on.

Combat

We're looking at almost every aspect of combat - how it looks, feels and sounds, as well as weapon characteristics and tactics. Weapon changes will be put up on the Public Test World to get some feedback in due course.

Matchmaking

We're taking a look at both the way in which player threat is calculated and how mission offers are distributed to players to try and improve the matchmaking experience overall.

Camping

We'll be addressing a number of the worst camping spots in the game in an upcoming patch. We'll be tackling the rest on an ongoing basis.

Missions

Investigations are already under way into ways to make mission objectives more interactive and to try and add a bit more strategy to the actual missions themselves, not just the combat surrounding them.

Rulesets

We're currently looking at adding a 'newbie' ruleset to give players a safe place to learn the game against other new players, and of course we're still progressing work on the 'pure skill' ruleset that was mentioned towards the end of closed beta. The Chaos ruleset hasn't been forgotten about either.
Posted by Woodwater

That does not look fantastic at all.

Posted by Zaph
@bunnymud:  So what you're saying is, they're looking at everything?
 
Funny how they didn't decide to 'look' at these things before release. Or maybe during the beta, when people kept telling them what was wrong (almost everything).
Posted by Shuborno

This reminds me of when I played Saints Row... except, you know, in Saints Row there is actually stuff to do.

Posted by DemiGodRaven

I heard the stereotypical Pendulum breakbeat but couldn't place the song. Was that them?

Posted by George_Hukas

 I feel like a fucking idiot for paying for this

Posted by SaturdayNightSpecials

That Phoenix song is the best part of this game, it seems.

Posted by Zaph
@cide:  Imagine how I feel, I've been following the development of this game for around 4 years. To see it amount to nothing more than money-grabbing garbage is painful.

Great, there basically saying that they made a shitty broken game but to continue paying them for the promise that they might one day "fix" it.
Posted by Jeffmoocow

APB look AWFULLLLLL. 
 
Also Jeff making that gang sign was amazing.

Posted by Dyram

This game gameplay wise isn't the most amazing thing out there in the world, but it can be fun. Add in friends and teamwork and it's even better.  
 
Even when not in missions, we have plenty of fun doing random things out in the world (even as an Enforcer) with other random players and by ourselves. The game is both a little thin, and full of treasures to discover. 
 
It's just unfortunate that Jeff didn't see what I got to in the game. And even more unfortunate that in front of the loyal GiantBomb community that he's so adamantly relating this to Crimecraft (a piece of shit garbage game).

Posted by Olivaw

So...it is basically CrimeCraft.
 
Except there's no stupid crafting and the customization is better.
 
Well that's sure a game that people made.
