PC Gamer - Not revamped, not rejigged, not redesigned. Reloaded. APB’s new suffix is apt, as this free-to-play reincarnation of 2010’s deflated cops and robbers MMO is a retread of the same ground. The same drab city, the same hollow combat, the same lopsided results.
The original city of San Paro has been left standing, a monument to badly judged level design and the colour grey. The first game’s devs, Realtime Worlds, intended the place to live and breathe. Instead, it spluttered a few times before its life support failed. Its resurrection is a miserable one.
