APB continues to sell well despite the less than stellar reviews. Not that I'm complaining, mind, as I quite enjoyed it myself.

I'm guessing that it's no co-incidence that his surname rhymes with sphincter.

1. From the IGN review of APB.. Jul 13, 2010, 13:36 sir
 
"I got burnt out about 20 hours in. There’s simply not enough content to keep the average gamer going."

And yet he still awards the game 7.7 out of 10 and a concise "good" rating.

News Comments > Defending All Points Bulletin
3. Re: Defending All Points Bulletin Jul 5, 2010, 14:34 sir
 
I really enjoyed the time I spent in the closed beta, which was about 90 hours in total. My only criticisms would be of the game's noob unfriendliness (going in cold, you can expect to get wasted by better equipped and more tactically aware players for days/weeks), the match making system (see previous point), weapon imbalance (the dreaded and ubiquitous n-tec being the main culprit) and the currently limited game world (there's only two, admittedly massive play areas at present). The good bits? I enjoyed the driving and the shooting. That might not sound like much, until you consider that they are the two core mechanics of the gameplay.

Edit: Forgot one last criticism - what they really need is a 'chaos' server, where anyone can kill anyone else at any time, instead of the current format where the pvp is restricted to a small team format.

Bleh, I wish these all these sales would just go away, I can't stop spending. You know what they say, a fool and cheap videogames are soon united.

I was almost tempted to make an account at PC Gamer to rebutt some of the reviewer's points, but laziness won out in the end - as it did with his review. The comment about having to "plan turns a good few hundred metres before intersections" was laughable, perhaps he had mistakenly found himself piloting a ship in San Paro's harbour region. More likely, he's a bit prone to over-exaggeration, something which has no place in a supposedly accurate review. While there were a few valid criticisms, by and large it's an article that should be filed under the "Haven't played it much and got destroyed by those who have, so I'll trash it" category.

The single player campaigns were regrettable & forgettable, but I had some fun with multiplayer for a few weeks. Sadly the game modes that I liked now have very few (populated) servers, as the mindless masses have reverted to deathmatch.

It's about time they enabled xp for non-ranked games, seeing as that's where the vast majority of the player base is hanging out these days.

I've jumped on the OpF bandwagon too - can't really go wrong at that price, even if it turns out to be a tactical turd.

With respect to the relationship between Activision and Blizzard, Activision is the gaming equivalent of Heather Mills, only with less wooden leg.

An alternative title for that article could be "My pal has written a big book about video games and he wants you to buy it, and I do too".

If piracy can guarantee that it will kill off the careers of the likes of Cyrus (father & daughter), Justin Bieber & co. then I'll gladly unfurl the Jolly Roger myself, and I don't need no steenking eye-patch.

Of course a blanket statement like that is inaccurate, but there's some truth in what he's saying. I've lived here in the US all my life and I know what he's talking about.

And I've lived in the UK all my life and have come to realise that douchebaggery knows no bounds, international or otherwise.

I wouldn't worry about not being able to access it. The dialogue between the doc and his gorgeous ginger minion is good, the rest of the game is forgettable.
