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!

I like this game, it had great potential, but when the developers ignored it, it just lost its touch, what sucks is the internet connection, the fact that people ONLY play deathmatch and theres a fair ammount of bugs and glitchs, but overall, its fun and similar to Team Fortress 2, i hope valve will one day come into it and fix this game...before its all ogre.

I'm writing this comment like a review to just say how mush I love this game. It's not perfect but it's fun and better then most. It has its own ideas like gadgets and fact that its not soldiers that are fighting its just guys dressed like batman and joker. It would be nice to have more guns and things like that but the game is very fun and you can spend hours playing it .
It's fun but like it never came out of the 1.0 version , there is allways a loading screen searching for updates but it never find one .

I would grade it 3,75/5 . And programers , please update this game cause it has so much potencial and there is big comunity of peapole playing this game including myself.

GC Impostors is a multiplayer shooter developed by Monolith and became free-to-play after a year.

Pros:
There are not many levels, but those are well-designed, which is also true when it comes to the characters and weapons. Overally interesting and unique ideas in gameplay. Different gadgets and addons let you play in your own style. Good character progression with plenty to unlock and purchase, even on the 500th level. Visual customization options are nice, you can have your very own look on both sides. Challenges, achievements and feats are expanding the content range. Good humour and theme. I got a lot of packs after my purchase of the original.

Cons:
Terrible lag, performance, server, and other issues making almost impossible to play the game. I cannot play the game even on the lowest settings. Worst game of all time optimization wise. Matchmaking is the same as before, so you might get onto a server where 80% of the players have bad ping. Also, there are server connection losses and other stuff to entertain you if you bored. Only a few game modes and a handful of maps. Some overpowered weapons and gear. With packs purchased through steam better equipment can be obtained early. Content which can only be unlocked via purchase. No actual expansions, maps, weapons, anything added for years. Not many players nowadays.

Overall, after more than 2 years of my purchase I still cannot play the game smoothly. The performance only slightly improved. It is a shame that good ideas were ruined by incompetent optimization.

My Opinion:
OVERALL: 6/10
Graphics: 8/10
Gameplay: 9/10 (core gp without lag and perf issues)
Sound: 8/10
Content: 7/10
Playerbase: 6/10
Port: 3/10

The framerate is terrible, the gameplay is too fast paced, the game is also too childish/immature. It felt more like Sunset Overdrive than a first person shooter. Eh, at least it's free.

If this game had a larger player base it would be better. It is a well put together game. Thought it is game that is multiplayer based. It is difficult to fully review the capabilities of the game issues with game play/weapons ect without a player base.

Conclusion

Mechanics: good
Video quality: Good
Community: ?(non exsistant)
custiomization: Great
F2P model: Great

I played it for a bit when it was popular. Forgot about it. Never really bothered to pick it up again. Realised nobody plays it anymore. Didn't bother reinstalling it. Play warframe instead.
