Your made up numbers are WAY over inflated. Me and my friends have played the game almost everyday since early release and have yet to come upon anyone overly suspicious.

While I have no doubt there are hackers in the game, as with every MMO, the problem is nowhere near the numbers you are spouting.

With the true facts now stated, I must say this game is quite boring if you try to play it solo, but an absolute blast with friends. Probably one of the best times I have had in awhile. The designers apps are also quite amazing.

I'm interested to see the future updates for this game.

@Tismah: "Massively covers MMOs, not just the RPG ones."

I don't see any coverage of MAG or Farmville here.

@kasapina "I don't recall APB being marketed as an MMG..."

There's more to marketing than the words in the ads. Marketing is who you talk to. Who you send your press releases to, who you give interviews and exclusive articles to, and what community forums you post on.

RTW gives interviews and press releases to MMG sites. Their developers post on MMG-oriented forums.

We cover MAG quite a bit, I've personally written at least three or four blurbs on the game in the last couple of months. We also occasionally will write something on Farmville or other social networking games if it's a story that has some relevance to more traditional MMOs.

APB is massively multiplayer, and it features a large game world that will likely get updated over time (as well as an MMO-type payment model). So, yeah it's an MMO and we'll continue to cover it.

there was some coverage for MAG here. I skipped reading it because it was for a console but it was here. At least a couple of times.

Its not an FPS, its 3rd person.

I had fun when I played but it's hard to summon the actual desire to play. Messing with the editors is pretty fun, but 50 bucks fun, I can't say?

The consolitis of shooters has sort of put me off them though not to mention the trend of tacking on a monthly fee when it's not justified is a bit long in the tooth now. That seems to cause games of this nature more pain then gain i.e. Global Agenda.

Wow I just read that eurogamer review. Didn't really see eye to eye with the guy. Was actually pretty worthless, like most reviews, and most reviewers, of anything. Movies, books, music, games...I just don't see a point in reading their shit if only to get a better gist of what the plot, style or genre is of said topic of review. Such a worthless industry.

I think I am just rambling but if I were to give most reviewers reviews, even big name ones, getting more than a 3/10 would be something remarkable.

yeah, that's what I was thinking. He was hitting the "fail" slogans left and right:

"it requires a natural learning curve"
"it's best played as intended'

blah blah blah

If that's not an fps but 3rd person... this is why it's gonna fail.. playing fps game from 3rd person is stupid..

Cause of this, you have both fps and tps fans disappointed.. it's some strange hybrid nobody likes... the same mistake was in tabula rasa.

I disagree sir. I liked it in Dead Space, I liked it in Red Faction: Guerilla, I like it in this game too. It is weird I prefer it to fps myself. To each their own.

I'll be definitely getting APB, just not now. I want to give the game a little more time, to see how it improves, and if it'll actually manage to stay alive. But this one's definitely on my watch-list. Even if it's only for the customization; I heard access to the Social District is unlimited, regardless of whether you still have subscription time left or not. Is that true?

APB would be an amazing F2P game or even a free game if they kept their time prices and a cash shop, But as it stands now its an mmofps and fails at being either well and its not worth the money.

At first I thought this was just a mere replica of gta but I've come to learn its much more. There's a few complaints I have with balance issues mainly on the criminal side. Overall though this seems like a revolutionary mmo of what I hope to see in a few other mmos coming soon such as guild wars 2 and planes of telera. Missions offer teamwork gameplay in a world that is not static. My only hope is that over time this game evolves to offer player customizable missions.

A developer releases a mediocre game that is full of problems, yet many still play it. What incentive is there for a developer to do it properly?

I found another review also worth a visit.
It's that just can not be wrong.
