PC shooter break: All Points Bulletin is fun but has issues so far

Great fun to be had in this game minus the trendy MMO mechanics. Form a team, shoot some criminals or commit crime if you want, it is everything the Champions MMO should have been crime fighting wise. I find it funny that a company that doesn't focus on MMO's can make a game more fun than Cryptic that labors at trying to make anything remotely entertaining. Champions Online was so close but NEEDS that random crime element thrown in to lend life to its lackluster capital city Millennium.

Here is the problem though. It has some serious matchmaking issues. While fun with a friend it falters in solo play. Even while waiting for a group. Lets let this one stew a few days before it launches and lets see how it really plays out
