APB Reloaded, the re-launched version of failed MMO All Points Bulletin, has gained 3 million users since launching with its freemium model.

This is a far cry from the userbase of Realtime Worlds' All Points Bulletin which shuttered with a mere 130,000 players.

GamersFirst is also releasing the title's first major content update with the introduction of Fight Club, which adds third-person shooter play set in new maps within APB Reloaded's city setting.

The game's client is currently available for free on Steam, while a premium physical release is available in the US and is planned for other territories soon. This version will be on sale for $30, however it will contain roughly $50 worth of virtual items.

VideoGamer.com Analysis

The game has come a long ways since the days when just trying to drive a car down the street was like trying to manoeuvre a bath tub down rapids. Check out our review of the original All Points Bulletin from its initial launch.

I'm looking into it, FM. As a policy we don't review MMOs any longer but a feature in the new year is likely.

Well, I've played maybe an hour in a European server and for me it's been a shaky lag ridden affair so far.

The lag makes controlling the character a bit frustrating, and makes driving a vehicle pretty much impossible. Par for the course with online games I guess. Maybe find a closer server for another character.

Besides that I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing.

It certainly didn't leave enough of an impression that I was eager to turn it on again.

Is it worth reviewing again or is it the same game still?
