APB Reloaded is an Action/Shooter, it is published by Iceberg Interactive. This game could be compared with the Grand Theft Auto series, because it is actually very similar. The game is based on multiplayer and together with your friends you do missions against the others. There exist two groups: the Criminals and the Police.
The game itself start with of course customizing your character, this is actually quite fascinating. You can edit so much in detail, this is one of the most extensive character customization I have ever seen. You can simply create any kind of character. When you are done, you start out at a person who gives you a mission. In one of the three districts you have joined, there are at the beginning 3 characters who can give you missions. Slowly you start to get higher ranks with those guys and new people will arrive in the district with new and fresh missions. When you join a mission you can do it together with other criminals but also police are doing their duty to prevent you to complete the mission. This is a fun aspect of the game, since there is some kind of rivalry created. With the cash you earn you can buy new weapons, clothes, plastic surgery, cars and much more! There are different ways to get money in the game. Doing missions is one, but also raiding shops and steal their goods. You can transport the goods with a car or a van, after that you can sell it illegaly. Though watch your back, because any police can arrest you for this. In the police perspective, you simply have to arrest or prevent criminals from doing their jobs. This will give you money and a higher status. The gameplay could sometimes be a little repetitive after a while, but it all depends what you choose to do in the game.
There is also the social district which is defined as a large shopping mall. Here you can buy personal designed clothing, cars, songs etc. All these products are created by other people. So this game also includes some kind of designing and socializing. This really makes it appealing to a larger audience.
I would rate the Gameplay 4 out of 5
The graphics are truly stunning. I was suprised by the quality of the models and textures. The way the characters move is perfect. The price compared to its graphics is almost unbelievable. I don't say these are the best graphics at this moment, but definitely one of the better graphics out there. Also the way the body is made up is good.
I would rate the graphics 5 out of 5
To conclude, APB Reloaded has wonderful graphics, a very varied gameplay for a large audience and most importantly very fun to play!
