Saint's Row 2 was far more enjoyable for me than the much acclaimed GTA4. If APB is remotely as fun as SR2 was, then sign me up.

Hysterical clip. This game is just looking better and better and better to me. I think I'd buy it for the vehicular mayhem alone.

But am I the only one thinking there are going to be waaay more crooks than enforcers in this game? Maybe they'll balance things out with NPCs or something.

The whole vigilante justice/enforcer thing sounds very intriguing to me. Dirty Harry, meet the MMO of your dreams. ;)

I'm totally going enforcer. And, if I can, I'm going gothic lolita. Gothic lolita cop = win.

OK so what does this game offer for game play besides running around and shooting? What I saw in that video looks very monolithic in terms of variety of play.

What does any MMO offer besides running, flying, or driving while shooting, casting spells, hacking, or shooting?

I doubt the game is going to be you just beating up on random civilians. I'd assume the game will have some quest-based mechanic, though that's usually not the most eye-catching element you want in a trailer. It's also entirely possible for it to have a deep loot and crafting system, but again, those aren't elements you want to have in a trailer primarily intended for advertising.

All I'm saying is that if I had to judge by the trailer I'd say that I might ad well stick with any other gps game.

Are you really saying mmos have no more depth than counter strike?

Sometimes, just runnin', shootin', and vehicular manslaughter is all it takes to have fun.

Maybe the game doesn't offer much more than that, but not every game has to be incredibly deep and intricate to be enjoyable. If nothing else, I feel this may be one of the first anti-grindfest MMO's to date.

Anyway, looks like retarded fun, can't wait!

The game looks like it's going to be fun as HELL! I may have to make a Bad Lieutenant inspired character...

Doesn't look good to me :\ Think I'd rather play GTA 4 multiplayer on the PC. The game just looks so meh and only 100 players makes it more so.

"Only" 100 players is no good? Remind me, how many players does GTA4 support per match? That's what I thought.


Day 1 buy. This is what GTA should have been from the start, MMO cops and robbers. I think 50v50 in a zone is a massive enough battle, after that it's gonna be pretty hard to aim. :P

I'm going to be an enforcer who is always 3 days away from retirement. After every shootout, car chase and...dance off you'll hear "I'm too old for this shit."

It's the kind of the game where you just log and have a quick fun then log off.I'll probably give it a try but I can't see myself spending lots of time in game like in a true MMORPG.

There are quests like bug someones phone or execute somebody (player?), arrest some guys, just check the top right messages watching the trailer above. You can also kill guys from your own side (hit with the side of the car in the trailer) and made some unlock (hopefully a negative one) when you do it so that would mean 'spray and pray' or zerging wouldn't be an option.

This all sounds fun, the only question would be if you got the character progression in this game appart from better looks. If you can unlock gear that is slightly better (not too much) so you can have this feeling of character progression I would say 'that's my game'.
