About This Game

Hatched from the twisted minds at Monolith Productions, Gotham City Impostors is a download-only multiplayer FPS that pits violent vigilantes dressed up like Batman against craven criminals dressed up like the Joker in open warfare on the streets of Gotham City.

Key Features

  • Why fight crime when you can kill it… Gotham City has gone insane! Batman is up to his pointy ears in unwanted "helpers" determined to dish out their own bloodthirsty brand of vigilante justice in his name (and image). Meanwhile, a small army of self-appointed junior Jokerz has turned the streets of Gotham into a barmy battlefield of bullets, bodies, and bear traps.
  • More customization than you can shake a shotgun at… Packing more customization than you can shake a shotgun at, you get to choose the guns, gadgets and even the hairdos that fit your personality and play style. It doesn't matter if you want to be a mighty muscleman on roller skates with a hunting bow or a lithe lassie packing a homebrew rocket launcher and glider wings, Gotham City Impostors does not have rigid character classes and lets you play the way you want.
  • 1000 levels of player advancement overflowing with upgrades and unlocks… A robust level up system lets you unlock all the items required to make your impostor as crazy as you desire. Whether you prefer to develop your impostor by proving your prowess in solo challenges designed to test your skills and reflexes or by battling your way to the top of the scoreboard in several delightfully over-the-top multiplayer modes, there's a surefire way for you to realize your preposterous potential!

Would be a good game but sadly the game developers had to make this free to play instead of buying it for a price which means in return it's pay to win. The game isn't bad don't get me wrong but it's unplayable 90% of the time due to pay to win players who have spammable rpg's (one hit kill), overpowered bear traps and various other things. Wouldn't recommend played unless you are willing to pay to win.

Played in the beta on the 360, stayed with the game until the devs dropped support and went onto their LoTR game. Was a great game while it lasted. Not a lot of people on PC nowadays, couldn't get past the slow matchmaking. Maybe there will be a re-release or a spiritual sequel someday. Give the game a go though. Think I spent more time on this on console than I did on anything else because of how fun and fresh it was at the time. Still a better experience than I ever had with more serious shooters.

Truly is a great game. Gotham City Impostors will always remain my favorite casual fps game. Despite it\'s great gamplay, lack of gun content, peer-to-peer connection, and time have really wore the community away from the game. It\'s a shame to see such a fun game die off.

Underrated FPS game. Not P2W. If you suck at regular FPS, you will suck less on this. U will love longer than COD/CSGO. Haven't played in a while because there was no one playing anymore.

A few years have passed and here am I, again playing Gotham City Impostors, but is it as good as I thought before?

Gotham City Impostors was released back in 2012, at the time the reviews of the game were pretty mixed. People praised it for its creativity, but gave it bad scores, because the game was plagued with bugs and connection issues. Basically the game is a fast-pased, arcady shooter similar to a mix between Team Fortress 2 and Call of Duty, with its in-depth gear customization. There are plenty of weapons to choose from, fully customizable with skins and mods, different abilities and gadgets. You can also fully customize your character with different clothes, masks and body types, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. And this is probably the only game where 99% of the stuff can be unlocked FOR FREE... apart from some clothing DLC!

However, Gotham City Impostors, even today, is still plagued by connection issues and over-all bad optimization! I don't remember having these issues before, but playing it again now, I get disconnected every second game I get into. And with the years the player base has really dropped. You can still have a good TD match, but forget the other game modes. Also the developers haven't been active for years, the last DLC dates back to 2012!

In the end I think that everyone should try this game at least once! This is a gem of a F2P game, and trust me, they don't make 'em like this anymore. Try it for yourself, bring awareness to its existance, it doesn't deserve to be left out to die, and it surely shouldn't over a few connection issues.

Fantastic gameplay. Lots of fun. Lots of cosmetics and weopons. Tons of customization. Runs great,even on a baked potato. But there are two MAJOR problems with the game. 1:Players; There should be way more players on this game for the quality. I literatlly see some of the same players everyday. 2:Servers; The servers on this game are HORRIBLE. Ive been disconnected from plenty of games for no reason. If those two problems were fixed,the game would be spectacular. I suggest playing it, even though it looks a bit cheesy. Its ALOT of fun,and its even better with friends. So in conclusion: Play, Enjoy, And tell other people to play.

This Game is fantasstic if your looking for an exciting, humorous, customizable First Person shooter that is also a batman game. some of the guns are realistic, some are cartoonish. The tutorial is awful, just JOKING, the tutorial is great and the beginning cutscene is funny. The maps are diverse and well laid out so that they are not to cramped.

I seriously wish there were some more customization instead of three male bodies on female, the spring shoe shoes could use an overhaul and the rocket launcher could use a serious nerf.

There is some bad to this game, The latency issues come to mind (When are they going to fix that), and the empty lobbies. However I did find a guide on empty lobbies and how to fix them so you don't sit through empty lobbies. (Note this is only on deathmatch that I experiance "full" lobbies. There is another way to fix empty lobbies and that IS YOU DOWNLOADING THE GAME. Seriously give this game a shot.

My first game I was instantly hooked. This is an incredible game and I would recommend it to anyone who might be interested. Don't think about it, just download it!

This Is A Honest Review,
I Reviewing this from a point of a starter character.

The game (From my Point) requires a lot of effort to not spend a penny, Most of the time Im rekt by better P2W players, And trust me you will have the same feelings, "WHAT!? NOT AGAIN! I WANT THAT GUN! ARGHHHH!" to say the least you will be mad that gun will take you like 5 hours of non stop grinding on each level and map,

But this game is a good free game,

This Review is short due to the fact i only played 2 hours, So that's why many people would disagree
