San Paro is a living, breathing, online city, its streets the playground for Criminals and Enforcers. Their mission is to gain fame and fortune, and gain them fast. Criminals take to a life of crime, feeding on the city, its people and its businesses. Other players, the Enforcers, feed on the Criminals.

APB's world is an online sandbox. Players will achieve celebrity or notoriety for their skills and style. Alliances will be formed, rivalries will be bitter. Every player will be unique. Thanks to cutting-edge technology, players can personalize their looks, clothing, vehicles and music. Earn money, clothing, guns, and cars as you play. Become a top-ranking player or Clan in leagues that track Kills, Arrests, Mission Success rates, and many other competitive stats.

APB is entirely online and multiplayer. However, it's a unique game unlike other MMOs out there. The game runs on fast, high-quality dedicated servers allowing you to enter cities and engage in a new style of game where your actions bring you into opposition with other players dynamically: there's no waiting in lobbies. You can encounter thousands of other players over a short period of time. Our dynamic matchmaking allows solo and group play in missions, against - or with - real people, never an AI.
  • Suitable for 18 years and over. Not for sale to persons under age 18. By purchasing this product, you declare that you are 18 years of age and over.

  • Conflict: APB is a fast paced multiplayer action game that uses a dynamic matchmaking system to throw real life opponents at you in real time. There's no AI, no waiting in lobbies, no waiting for a map to start. The action flows constantly and every threat you face in APB is controlled by a real person, you never know exactly what you're going to be up against.
  • Creativity: APB has an 'expression suite' of in-game customization tools. Any items created with these tools can be traded or sold to other players through the Marketplace.
  • Persona: one of the most in depth character creation systems ever seen, allowing players to tweak thousands of parameters, to create physically unique and lifelike characters.
  • Designer: which allows players to create imagery they can apply to pretty much anything they want. Tattoos, clothing, vinyls on vehicles, clan logos, spray tags, etc.
  • Garage: An area where players can customize vehicles to their hearts content. Change the colours, add symbols and imagery, add body kit parts, modify the speaker system, players can even change the exhaust sound!
  • Music Studio: A fully fledged sequencer style music studio, allowing players to create their own 'death themes'.
  • Celebrity: Players gain fame in APB for winning leagues, creating clothing brands, or pretty much anything they want! Attain accolades and see your statue erected in the Social and Action districts. Popular players, clans and brands will also be featured on thecommunity page every day in addition to League results - and there are a lot of Leagues!

 Good...but not great

| | See all Oxocube91's reviews (1)

After playing for months in the Beta I have to say while I was impressed with the detailed customisation and the in game editing tools... the actual gameplay seemed to suffer, too much emphasis on customisation and not alot on balance and smooth gameplay.

The driving and combat usually feels slow and/or clunky and not very fluid and more times than not you end up shooting the wall infront of you rather than around it.

As for the balancing, Enforcers have a clear advantage over the criminal players in combat in general, and as a new player against more experienced people, you will usually find yourself constantly getting smashed unless you rank up enough to get more upgrades so you stand a chance, its a game of whos got the best upgrades, not who's got the best skill.

I have been playing the Key to the City demo and although I only got 5 hours :-( this game is AMAZING!!

A lot of people are saying it is GTA online, but they are SO wrong it is much, MUCH more! There first hour or so I thought it WAS GTA online, and then I found The game ships with free editors to let you build your own clothes, cars, tattoos and even music! But where it really shines, is when you start to team up for intense online group battles, you can even steal cars and ride together, shooting out the windows in the same car when on missions. I can see this game just getting better and better as the game play is determined by the players! I have been waiting for a game like this for SO long and now it is almost here.

If you have a chance, jump in on the free demo now...I am sure you will do what I did and pre-order straight after!

After playing the beta and putting over 100 hours of game play over the mouths I have but one thing to say.... Fantastic

Not only can you spend multiple hours editing your cloths cars and tattoos the game play has so many different aspects to it its hard to say over text. You have to experience the game play to really appreciate what RTW (real time worlds) has made many people said it was GTA it looks like GTA but is a totally different game in more ways than one.

however there are some downfalls to the game the missions are many team based so if you have no friends on the game... make them fast as you will have hours of fun riding around in a SUV shooting at random and getting the enforcers after you or if you decide to be enforcer sit back relax and just wait for the call to jump into action

Maps it comes down to two The Finical and Waterfront both are so vast they could be the size of some GTA ones also there is social that is where you customize everything.
If you enjoy total carnage this game is for you its a fast paced game and Im sure you will all enjoy it as much as I have over the closed beta stage and I hope to see many people when the game comes out.

 Don't listen to these muppets.

Despite what the other reviews has said i have clocked up over 300 hours of game time and i have seen what i 'suspect' to have been 2 cheaters, there are a lot of GTA players i suspect who are trying this game out and have not really seen 'real aim' so to speak and blindly acuse people of cheating because they got killed. Alas you will get that with any online skilled based game.

The game relies heavily on teamwork and you would find it much more enjoyable if you played with friends or joined a gang straight away. The graphics are nice, customisation brilliant and kill theme is my personal fav. The core game mechanics are what make it so playable and fun - as the devs used the counter strike model as a base. Just needs more fluff. The most fun i've been having in a online game in ages!

Also you can buy in game time with ingame money using RTW points so you don't have to even pay for a subscription!

 Very good fun, but a few problems

This is a very fun game to play. I agree with a previous reviewer that it is centred around teamwork (though you can go solo if you prefer). One point to clear up first of all is that once your preliminary 50 hours game time runs out, you need to pay for realtime world points which you can then exchange for game time. To get 30 days unlimited access, it costs 7.99.

Pros include; a great social area where you can customise appearance, clothes, tattoos, cars etc. It even has a facility where you create a basic tune that your opponent hears once you've killed them (I can't count the number of times I've heard beverley hills cop when I've died!). You can import you're own music collection to the game, but please note it has to be saved in the MP3 format, in other words you cannot import directly from the standard i-tunes format. If you play a song in your car which other passenger do not have, last.fm streams a similar song to them so that they can hear the same genre.

Cons; graphics are not great, but decent enough for an MMO game. Police enforcer stun guns are quite irritating as you will be stunned for a considerable length of time. Intermittent problems with the servers have caused lots of people to get kicked out of the game when trying to change lobbies or even alter appearances. As previously mentioned by someone else, you do have to play through for quite a while to unlock things. After 10 hours of play I have unlocked very little, but then again that's all part of the challenge.

One final important point is that if you intend to play this game with friends, then keep in mind that once you have selected your game world/server, you can never change this! You need to make sure that your friends all select the same server and faction (criminals or enforcers) at the beginning.

Hope this review helps and doesn't put you off. For it's faults, it is a very enjoyable game once you land in a steady group of players.
