Metacritic Ratings



Get Ready, Gotham...
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.


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!



UPDATE: The first set of DLC for Gotham City Impostors, coming out in March, will be FREE

I played the beta a little bit, and while it was fun at times it was also very frustrating at times as well. The Hunting Bow is freaking awesome if you are great at getting just one shot in.

What I got from the game was that it was essentially CoD with some Batman flavor (and quite a bit of humor, as well).

Loving this game so far but I also loved the beta. I just think some weapons are still overpowered though.

This game is amazing, I also played in the beta so I knew I was going to get it right away. It's a shame that I'm pretty sure the freeze gun got nerfed even though it wasn't amazing in the beta to begin with :/

5 maps... unfortunately. i know its only $15 and in other games all you get for $15 is 5 maps... but this is a stand alone game, just curious as to how long 5 maps will last until i dont want to play them anymore... but the demo was alot of fun so ill prolly pick it up this weekend sometime.

You get to make your own character essentially based in the custom classes you can make which is similar to COD.

It plays a lot like Bioshock 2 did online, which I did enjoy, so I'm obviously enjoying this quite a bit so far. My only complaint is the extremely lag infested game that I occasionally get thrown into. For $15 it can't be beat. It's even getting free DLC next month.

I tried the demo earlier, while really digging the visual style and gadgets etc I didn't do very well. I'm pretty good at shooters, does this game have a learning curve?

Has the game changed much from the beta? I didn't care much for the beta. I would try it again, or buy it on sale, but it just seemed like a lot of good ideas but nothing to connect them.

Also, what is with the Batman license in this game? This is how I imagine the conversation going down.

Developer: Well, we have a really solid game here. Should be a lot of fun.
Publisher: Yes, yes, it looks good, but it will never sell without personallity. Remember Monday Night Combat?
D: Yes.
P: I know what this game needs, a license!
D: A license? Like what?
P: Well let's see, what do we have? I KNOW, A BATMAN GAME!
D: But batman doesn't use guns, and this is a shooter.
P: You'll figure it out.

It's not really DLC. It's a title update that will include some "free stuff".

No, that's not true. While the DLC is certainly title-update like, and a title update will probably be released with it, it has to be a separate download since Microsoft licensing polices don't allow any new content to be included in title updates.

I thought I loved the trap in the box, but now I LOVE the air-space denier!

If they kept it up to date with new stuff all the time, I'd think of it as a Batman TF2.

What does the air space denier do? Anything to do with the up draft vents? I have an unlock for a new gadget, but couldn't decide if I wanted the bear trap or that jack in a box bomb. I need to checkout the air space thing.

It comes with one free map. That sounds like DLC to me.

Plus, MS limits the size of title updates. I don't remember how big, but it is pretty small. Like 4 MB or something. You can't fit a new map in a title update.

The air space denier makes it so anybody with a gadget that gets them air (glider rig, bounce shoes, graplling gun) automatically falls to the ground in a stunned state. It's great for fumigation.

I was thinking about the bear trap and jack in the box bomb after playing fumigation for a while. People would plant those next to the gas things. I seemed to never notice them as I had bear traps stuck on me every 2 minutes. :)

Microsoft doesn't really have a limit on title updates, the BF3 updates are over 200 Mb. However, Microsoft doesn't allow new content in title updates, just patches and bugfixes

This seems like it'd be a fun game, but I played it for about eight seconds before I remembered why I fucking hate Xbox Live. Shame.

Wow, I thought I posted in this thread earlier but it was just the one for the clan... Granted, I post in it when I was really looking for this thread as I doubt I would ever be online at normal hours to be a useful clan member...

Anyhow, like you all I'm really enjoy the game (at least when its working mostly right), and have no regrets getting it! At this rate I'm going to have more hours spent on this than most retail games.... and I'm pretty darn sure I already have more time spent in CGI than any other download only game on either console.

Vulcan, it was pretty crazy to run into you in a random match like that... Even more crazy you recognized me as a CAG. Really glad that happened! :D

Anyone else who plays and does so allot in the US mornings don't hesitate to send me a friend request. :) (Others are more than welcome to do so also! Just realize my schedule doesn't leave much time to play during prime time.)

I love this game. I hope the March patch fixes the matchmaking and lag problems, and doesn't keep splitting my damn party up into the opposite teams. Or killing me during a match and putting me on the opposite team.

Well, I'm always up in the wee hours of the morning... but only on the 360 on Sunday and Monday.

I game pretty much every US morning though. :)
