The Games Machine (UK)
Law enforcement has never been so much fun. With plenty of villains to apprehend and plenty of highway to explore, APB will keep law-abiding citizens playing until they've caught the last criminal mastermind.
Computer and Video Games (CVG)
A humorous and original concept which is let down by jerky scrolling and sprite movement. APB fun will love it, but others mightn't feel so enthusiastic.
ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
APB is certainly fun. Graphics, sound, and the smoothness of animation all hit the quality levels that a Tengen title needs to convert effectively to home use. The problem is that the basic game design is not really suited to the hours, days, and weeks of play that a home computer game needs to justify its price tag. At 20p for a few minutes entertainment APB works fine as a coin-op. At £20 to play it at home on your Amiga or ST I am not so sure. If you were totally addicted to the coin-op go for it. If not - try before you buy is ACE's advice.
The One
Nevertheless, fans of the coin-op should be satisfied - as long as they can put up with the slight hiccups in the gameplay.
Power Play
Während A.P.B. in der Spielhalle für aufregende Krimi-Verfolgungsjagden sorgt, spielt sich die ST-Umsetzung zäh wie eine "Tatort"-Wiederholung. Die Steuerung mit dem Joystick ist bei weitem nicht so exakt und schnell wie beim Automaten, der ein waschechtes Lenkrad zu bieten hat. Außerdem machen bei der ST-Version spielerische Schnitzer selbst die schönste Streife zur Frustfahrt. Immer wieder rumpeln andere Autos so fix in Euer Gefährt, daß Ihr nicht rechtzeitig ausweichen könnt. Obwoal A.P.B. wegen seiner vielen Details einen gewissen Charme ausstrahlt, hatte ich wegen dieser Unfairneß bald genug von der Ganovenjagd. Ein Spiel für Joystick-Genies und Masochisten; alle anderen lassen lieber die Finger davon.
