IGN writes: "Sitting in a cubical in Boulder, Colorado, I lay my greasy nerd palms atop a keyboard and mouse. I'm in the Realtime Worlds US office, where I was told most of the "business-side of things" happened. Behind me sat EJ Moreland, Design Lead, talking me through the introductory screen of APB. An online game of cops-and-robbers, APB is frequently compared to Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto series. The comparisons are at first very obvious – regardless of whether you play as an enforcer (the law-type character) or a criminal players can hijack cars, attack (or avoid) pedestrians and cause chaos on the streets".
