 - APB, Realtime Worlds, PC, This is the really real world, There ain't no comin' back

Realtime World's experimental MMO APB has officially turned up its toes, and the user base is clamouring for blood. But the news isn't great. Aside from some placatory gestures from publishers EA to try and give customers something back in return for their wasted cash, full refunds have been dismissed as out of the question.

APB's problems stemmed from the game's buggy and unfinished state, an absolutely ridiculous set of subscription models and charges - and basically being a pretty poor pretender to the GTA throne. A pity, as there's a massive gap in the market for an MMO that does more than let you get your freak on with elf chicks.

Rumoured reports have suggested that some online customers have been offered Mass Effect 2 as a bit of a sweetener by EA but even this can't be confirmed.

All in all, what had the potential to be game of the year has ended up being a turd on a string. A great pity.
