There's a chance APB is for you. It gives you the tools to make you and your fellow players stand out in an otherwise conventional city. It provides opportunities for explosive moments of driving, gunning, and exploding. But the joys are too infrequent and the frustrations are excessive, while the returns on your investment aren't as high as what you would hope for from a persistent-world action game. APB is different enough to warrant consideration, but with so many refined shooters begging for your time, playing one that requires an extraordinary amount of patience isn't very appealing.
