    APB: Reloaded can be loads of fun, just mindless fun. The game is pretty buggy, it's not terribly balanced per-say and it's kinda pay-to-win but it's still fun... it's one of them games you pop in when your bored... it's not really something you play seriously, it's just to mess around in.

    PlanetSide 2 on the other hand is the type of game you really have to get into to have fun... you can luck into fun but to really get the best out of it you really need to jump in head first. PlanetSide 2 has offered some of the best and worst online shooter experiences I've ever had... at it's worst I'm spending more time trying to find the fight than actually fighting in it... it can be a lonely game. At it's best though it's some of the best online shooter moments around... that feeling of running into battle with tanks rolling around, planes flying over head and lots of other ground troops all around... bullets with tracer trails on them whizzing all over the place... it's crazy.

    The trick is you have to plan these attacks... nothing is scripted, if you don't know anyone, don't group up, don't speak up etc then running into these incredible moments becomes a lot more about luck than anything else, when you jump in, join a clan and really get into it though this stuff can be every battle and a really great experience.

    Both games have their issues, pros, cons etc but I have to go PlanetSide 2 for it's overall package.

    Planetside 2, definitely. APB: Reloaded is a fine shooter game, but I never enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed Planetside 2. Also, I'm a big fan of its graphics XD I really like it, a lot more than APB: Reloaded's graphics.

    Planetside 2 will win because it is more popular.

    Planetside 2 is something special. It definitely improved on the first one:).

    Although not quite as lopsided as the victory by World of Tanks, Planetside 2 easily dominated APB Reloaded in this round.
