this can be one of the most successful free to play games, comeback game of the year. with that said, the developers messed up they thought this be there cash cow, but monthly fees are a joke only wow can get away with that.DC Universe F2P soon too.
Yea... APB was a load of crap. And why tha hell you think Mafia 2 was disappointing? It was great! Great story, voice acting and so on... So whats wrong? Go play GTA or other stupid game, where u can just messing around and watch booooring story.
Yeah, it was going to be either C&C4 or APB. I would include Epic Mickey but there were increasingly signs of that falling on it's face before it was even released. I suppose that, while C&C 4 failed at everything from story to gameplay to DRM designed to annoy those unfortunate enough to buy it, APB not only setting a record for shortest existance as an MMO before being shut down but also being bad enough to put it's own developer out of existence is worse.
Disappointing indeed. 5 years, the original creators and more fans than I can count. This game had a lot of potential, shame...
Dang, it sucked that bad ?? How sad... I guess they really decided to let GTA and Saints Row do all of that.
@Neo_Sarevok I'm not sure, but I think I read on Guinness book that this record goes to Tabula Rasa, with just an year or so of online official servers. APB lasted 3 months... It hit the previous record.
Agreed here too. It's so disappointing a game under development for so long with so much talent could fall so quickly on its face. Three months?... I don't know the record for an MMORPG failing after launch, but that might be it. APB feels like it's become the poster-boy for all the things an MMORPG can do wrong. While it offers great customization features, it doesn't mean squat if the game-play isn't polished.
