    Maybe Epic could take it down and fix it then do a relaunch.

    It was fairly predictable that this would happen as soon as they announced the job cuts really

    I'd be pissed if I bought the game. But it was rubbish anyway and I didn't buy it.

    Regardless of what people i say i recon this game had/has alot of potential.

    Although it wasn't as good as it should have been i thought it was ok for an hour or so at a time.
    Wasn't worth paying per month though.

    Such a shame, I really enjoyed the BETA, the game was actually quite fun... Guess it just didn't appeal to many..

    I blame MTV.

    I got a message from a mate on Steam last night saying he had been kicked off the APB server he was in. Now I know why lol. He had just bought more hours as well. Hopefully people who recently bought more hours can get a refund, but I doubt it.

    I personally was obsessed with the game at first, that was while I was getting to know the game. Once the game got to the point where it was just the same mission over and over it started to suck. The cheaters ruined the game and if you didn't have a good buddy to play with then it was really pointless.

    The game could be awesome - but you need MORE to do in the game besides customizing your character. The matching needed to be more appropriate as well, if you have no mods and the opponent has level 3 everything then of course he is going to waste you.

    sucks for people that wasted money on that game, wonder if they will get a refund for at least the initial purchase.

    Hour before dawn, and how do you think a company in administration is able to pay back and trace all the customers who bought a copy of this game?

    For some reason, APB just wasnt developed correctly.

    and paying out 100m for a title is really a sad state of affairs, when the game doesnt exactly run brilliantly.

    Someone should buy its rights, take it offline, remodel and remake it and put it back up again. APB - Round 2!

    Okay so that would be a seriously illogical move.
