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!

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.

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.

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.

Game isnt worth the free cost.... I have now changed my mind about it.... There are way to many people who take no damage in game, now I do not know if its a cheat issue or a server issue, either way it is enough to say good-bye. Not to mention the select few people who are still playing, are either near max level and have every gaget, weapon ect..., or a team full of new players which isnt fun either.

I've played this game on Xbox 360 before I played it on PC. Let me just say how amazing this game is for how dead it appears to be on PC. The Cartoon-styled characters and interesting weapons make this game unique, but unfortunately not many people know of it. There are 3 body types, Light, Medium, and Heavy, who are scaled with their body types. (I.E. Heavy has a lot of health, but is slow. Light has low health, but is fast. Medium is the balance.) There are 2 sides to "choose" from, Bats and Jokerz who are respectively representing their chosen Icon. There are quite a few wacky gadgets to assist you in the fight, from gliders to explosive jack-in-the-boxes. Overall this game is highly underrated, and I would recommend this wacky and fun FPS.

I dont know what it is about this game but I really like it. Like most games if im playing solo I just listen to music and enjoy playing and with this game that is one of the most perfect things to do. You can relax and enjoy the comedy in the game and also recking people if you have the skill. Because tbh this game requires a little bit of skill, it isnt just spray and pray like in games such as CSGO. Basically what im trying to say its a fun game which doesnt make you rage (Well maybe sometimes) and you can just have enjoyable hours on it. Rate it 8/10 and suggest you buy it.

Honestly, this game is so much more fun than any Call of Duty game I've played online. The customization of the characters expresses yourself in ways you desire, including but not limited to how the voice of the character sounds. It's really fun when you get use to it and you don't usually rage quite as much as a COD game. Players are a lot more friendly than on COD and I think it's because no one takes the ranks very seriously. Honestly if you're looking for a free fun alternative to COD, this is the game for you. If you're going to buy any of the packs I would choose the ultimate pack for $29.99 it gives everything the game has to offer except the things you need to earn while playing. That's the best investment in this game, I wouldn't waste my money on the smaller packs. Hopefully this review helps and be prepared to eat my rockets in server. :)

The hype for this game should be way bigger. If you look at titles like overwatch and battleborn you can clearly see how gotham city imposters had pretty much the same idea years before. Its an absolutely great game the only thing thats bad about it is that there are not enough players. I'd give this game 10/10 straight without any doubts.

It is Free to Play PVP game. Worth a try if you are really good at first person shooters, but the matchmaking is non-existant and the players only play the TDM. Has movement mods on the maps and you can equip movement gear.

Funny game, humorous sorta like Team Fortress 2. Noobs are cannnon fodder. You can slowly unlock stuff or buy unlocks with money.
Has Steam achievements.

I remember playing this on the xbox back when it came out and how awesome it was, and I really wanted to give it another shot but there is no controller support. One of my fingers has a bone that healed wierd and a controller is a lot more comfortable for me. I still want to play this though, so I'm very sad :(

Please add controller support and send me a message!

Love the content and gameplay. Im not event that salty about amount of microtransations that you can do to have better eq or look. Still worth playing to unlock it by myself. Awesome locations, looks and texts. This game makes my day even if I played it first time like about 3/4 years ago.

9/10
Pick a side: Batman or Jocker?
