About the 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!

Gotham City impostors is an overlooked gem of the FPS genre. With customization and improvisational strategy light years beyond TF2, it competes in the same space as Valve's champion WITHOUT a shred of developer support. That's right, this game is "Dead," in the sense kids who wonder what DSL was use the word about games. Every week, NO patch appears to incrementally increase the power of the loudest forum whiners. NO new cosmetic packages are released at $2.99 a pop. No season pass is up for sale, followed by DLC that is not included in it. In point of fact what Monolith did by "abandoning" GCI when it went F2P was give us the best of both worlds: A game that has neither a price tag nor active marketing/Pay to win tendencies. I wish more developers would abandon their games!

As to the actual gameplay, it's stellar in all the ways that are underrated today. The key thing is the custom loadouts: Any weapons, gadgets, support items, body types, and perks, can be combined. Any strategy can be supported. What pre-defined classes there are are totally optional and practically unused, as players are allowed to develop their own methods and build an improvisational, customized playstyle and support it fully with their gear. This would be like allowing the scout to carry the heavy's minigun in tf2, only it slows him down when it's equipped. Want to combine a sniper rifle with a shotgun and bear traps to defend your nest? No problem. Rather back your sniping up with a machine gun and some motion sensors? Equally good. Want to build your strategy around grappling above players' heads and then dropping your massive weight on them? Try it, let us know how it goes. Whatever you want to attempt is up to you.

The result has been a little bit of a vidication for me; people sometimes argue that balance in a pvp game can only be maintained by constant, active adjustment in the form of buffing and nerfing by patch. Well, GCI has had none of that, and yet the complaints about OP builds (such complaining is immortal and without limit) have largely migrated from one build to another another. No strategy is singularly overpowered; you can get in a GCI forum and listen to guys shout about how ten different things are completely broken and overpowered. In my book if there's ten ways to be overpowered, that's the same thing as ten balanced strategies, since no one of them asserts itself as standing above the others. When I first started playing GCI, divebombing mighties were considered impossibly cheap and unbalanced; now they're a footnote. And it hasn't happened through patches or "balancing"; it happened because players, lacking a mommy Monolith to rescue them, noticed the available ways to counter the scourge of the skies and used them. Liberty prevails!

Free yourself from dependence on your next fix of DLC! Cast off the shackles of developer "support"! The next time a game company holds out to you some shiny trinket saying "With this microtransaction, you will gain the power to defeat all who would oppose you!" bite that tempter's hand. And then come play GCI, we could use more players.

I highly recommend this kind of crazy FPS. This game is much better then it used to. Reviews are not relevant anymore. This game used to fight with hard technicall difficulties and lack of players (cus of business model). Now its piece of brilliant in stinky F2P FPS waters. GCI is pure fun with lots of various weapons, gadgets, character costumization and nice humour. F2P model works just fine (you can get almost everything by playing and things that you have to pay for are useless). You definitely should try this out even if you tried it some time before. This game is getting better! 8/10

I have only been playing this game for a hour and love it, the story is a bit shaky but I can understand it for a game based entirely on rewards and of coarse it is a main fps so story line doesn't always matter since this is a mass multiplayer game

Art- Looks amazing 9.5 out of 10 feels like you are in a comic book I love it

Gameplay- Suprisingly fun to play and has no lag for me and it is fast faced and always exiting

Replay- Definatly can play this game many many times

Weaponry- Cool guns able to get new types of weapons and attachments

Maps- Great maps which feel like they are torn from the comics just like arkham or the dock

Items- Love the items refrences like Stichy who is of coarse Scarecrow,

Costumes- They cram out lots of costumes and make you want to buy them

Overall score 9.4/10 just because I experienced a few bugs and minor things but love the game

Hope you liked review-Wookie

Totally awesome game! Lots of different guns and gadgets! It´s free and you should be playing it right now! My favourite game of all time. I played the Beta version, I have played it more than 250 hours on Xbox and it´s still fun to play it. I know that the matchmaking system doesn´t work so well, but I have always found a match after trying to find a match couple times. Download this awesome game, because it´s freakin awesome!
