City Game with Good Graphics

A few years ago, I saw in a magazine a preview screenshot of a game. It showed what looked like a NYC street scene, with very realistic graphics (people, cars, buildings, etc). It looked better than GTA4.

Does anybody know what I'm talking about, and what became of that game?

It was modern. I'm not certain it was NYC, but it was definitely urban, with very realistic looking cars.

What about the next Saint's Row? I believe it was in development before 2 was even released?

No, I know what he is talking about... I played the demo for like 2 days. You play as a punk or a law enforcement character and do GTA type things but in a multilayer type world. The title of the game was really lame, All Points Bulletin (APB). I very quickly lost interest.

APB looked very promising... till I found out it was a dumbass MMO.

Would love to see that gfx engine in a single player game.

It might be, it totally sounds like it. But for whatever reason APB looks way more "cartoony" than the screen I remembered.

I just can't find that screen anywhere. I don't remember which magazine it was, some game mag.

Oh man oh man oh man.... I think I might know what you're talking about. It's a vaporware game that was announced, but never released. It was an open-world city game similar to GTA4 and had graphics that rivaled or surpassed GTA4.

Ugh. I wish I could find the Joystiq article now. It must've been 2-3 years ago.

You might be onto something.

As far as I remember, it was daytime in the city. There might have been a taxi and some red car that looked like a Lexus.

All I know was I was pretty excited when I saw the screen shot.
