Oh man they spent 265 million to just make the game? HOLY shit that's insane(cept that's not how much it cost to create the game it's the budget of the game and the marketing for said game.)(Marketing being far more expensive depending on how many you want to reach). Fucking hell dude. This is just a shitty essay if you're gonna ignore that fact and say it cost 265 million to create said game. Which is inherently false. Lazy bum.

1. Basic gameplay loop. Run around town and do the same 4 missions + GTA combat. 2. Poor mechanics. Vehicle controls felt sloppy and guns handled poorly. 3. Character customization is a bonus, not a cornerstone of gameplay. 4. Poor optimization at launch. Load times were long and framerates low. 5. Limited maps and lack of a persistent world. All there was to do in APB was the same basic deathmatch over and over. 6. P2W. Paid guns were OP, starter guns were awful. So yeah. Make a bad game and it'll fail.

Why APB failed: EA made them bump it 5 years longer, drop loads of microtransactions, takes most of the profit, devs counldnt afford to fix it nor the want to lose a big company marketing the game

Dude, PROVE to me that it was a 100 million dollar project. Don't take some company's word, some random journalist's word, don't just take someone's word for it after seeing that figure online. If you ever have played APB, you would know why I'm skeptical about that being the actual amount that was spent developing the project. Also, you never expanded upon some of the criticisms you were hinting at "it was supposed to have a massive map"....well it doesn't, and doesn't have nearly 100 million's worth of content or polish either.

The Customization System of the game is still a gold Standard, Shit, I have seen the Simpsons, Power Rangers and other Cartoon, anime or movie Characters reimagined in APB Reloaded. The Game still has Huge Potential, Potential that was entirely wasted by RTW, by G1 and currently is still wasted by those owning it now, something-something planet, forgot the name. You can still have fun if you don't take it utterly seriously, but it suffers the typical Free 2 Play Problems, dunno if it changed by now, I played it again last year after like not doing so in 2 Years. I spend way too much time in it to just go and say it's outright shit, which it is not, but the Problems overshadow everything else. Unlike what morons say, the game is not Pay 2 Win, it is Freemium, Guns in the shop are mostly Reskins, those who are not are gimmick weapons that are not outright better, the literal best guns in the game are unlocked within the first Hour of playtime. Even the Starter gun is very much playable and quite good. So who ever says it's Pay2Win, laugh at them and don't bother with them they dont even understand how Pay2Win works.

The same people who bought Unsung Story. Little Orbit, also bought the rights to this game and have already done a very good job at making some QOL changes while they work on rehauling the engine. They've been extremely communicative and have already changed more in a few months than Reloaded Productions did in the last 2 years of owning the game. If they succeed I'll be extremely happy for them and they seem like they really want to make the game work. They've already made several very good changes to the game, including implementation of a proper trading system and ensuring that there's a free-to-acquire version of every weapon that was previously exclusive to the cash shop.

I remember playing this game after it went f2p. All of that money probably went to the customization part of the game. Because the gameplay was shit and the maps were very small. I have never played a more grind heavy game than this one. Don't think there's a single person who has gotten far in this game without paying.
