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!

This game as you can imagine is similar to the likes of TF2. You play as a goofy wannabe Joker/Batman character and go around killing the opposite team i.e. Jokers or Batmen. It is possible to glide, jump and grapple yourself around the map to execute your enemies whilst collecting present boxes with awesome gun skins like kitties and pizzas :D. You are also able to stack an in-game currency to get nice pieces of cosmetic gear to suit up your character There's also a leveling progression system that allows you to unlock more gear and advanced weaponry.

It's F2P and if you haven't played it just go and do it ya plebs.

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.

Shot a man with a grappling hook, chased people around with a katana, decapitated people on roller skates, flew around the map as a 400 pound man half nude, and still made it home in time for supper.

English Review
This game is quite fun and reminds me of the game TF2 or Loadout. Good graphics, weapons, nothing much. You can choose from several modes, the best course is to start Toutorialom and the normal game is to choose two teams. Do not like me those dumb masks and suits the characters.
My rating 6/10.

Slovak Review
Táto hra je celkom zábavná a pripomína mi hry Loadout alebo TF2. Grafika dobrá, zbrane nič moc. Na výber sú viacero módov, samozrejme najlepšie je začať Toutorialom a pri normálnej hre sú na výber dva tímy. Nepáčia si mi tie priblblé masky a obleky postáv.
Moje hodnotenie 6/10.

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.

This is a Shooter Like no other i've played before! I mean what FPS allows you to Fly, Grapple hook, jetpack, go Invisable, or jump across the map, and more! Also there is 5 different charactor types allowing you to either move quicker or have a higher max health. Then there is the Weapons: of course there is the semi/auto rifles, SMGs, Snipers and Shotguns, but also theres unique weapons such as the Electric ball shooting Witch Doctor, a Bow, a Sword, and even a freeze gun! of course theres more weapons such as the rocket launcher, but i wont list them all here. Gameplay gets a 10/10!

Down sides to this game: no dedicated servers, its peer to peer hosted and when you get a bad host, its bad! Also there is no server browser so at times can be tough to find a match or even see that there is one because the're full. Has a decent player base but i wouldnt call this a popular game, so could use more players(altho haven't seen a game yet that was like "there's to many players!" lol). Would be nice to get some more maps ;)

I see negitive reviews for "unbalanced matchmaking" and i'll assure you this isnt really true. it places players from previous match from how they did into teams for the next match, the exception is when players party up, then it tries to put partied players on the same team. Much rather have the option to play with friends than having even matching always.

I play all the time, seems to be my favorite game right now. Definatly worth the cost of free! not sure i'd buy this game tho if it costed, really needs dedicated server support for that. it would be a 10/10 game if it had dedi support, more maps, and server browser imo.
but it dont so...
I give it a 8/10.
I definatly reccomend this game!

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

Good game. Wonderful game.
Except for one thing.
It's Multiplayer.
Nobody's playing.
I hope you can connect the dots.

I do like it... when there's something to do.

Did initiation, went straight to Challenges. 1 bronze medal before I gave up due to a glitchy clock. Then I went to Psych Warfare. Nothing to do there. Me and my sister agreed to try to find a team deathmatch match. No luck.

The multiplayer has always been the heart of shooters for me, and when there are no multiplayer games, well...
