    The game is fun, features a lot levels for any shooter fan to blast his way to (1000 levels). The game however has a lot of matchmaking issues, a lack of levels, and feels a lot like Call of Duty if the military dressed up as Batman and the Joker, and had their funding taken away. collecting items and customization can be a bit addicting, and the gunplay is rather solid.

Definitely worth the $15 price tag, but no more. Expand

    This game is F2P on consoles and Steam. It has the best FPS gameplay I've personally seen because it's fun, innovative and cool. I can also honestly say this is the funniest game I've ever played. It lacks a theater mode like Black Ops has, which means people can (and will) lagswitch/invisibility/inf ammo hack you.

I can also honestly say this is the funniest game I've ever played. It lacks a theater mode like Black Ops has, which means people can (and will) lagswitch/invisibility/inf ammo hack you. The game has a paywall, there's a gun called the Witch Doctor which a fairly large amount of people use, it costs $5 and guarantees your team an automatic victory, if you want to combat that you need to pay the $5 to buy a Witch Doctor. Lag is another severe issue, the game lags so severely that you can't tell if someone is lag switching or if it's Monolith's fault for piss poor programming. If the game were $60 I'd have to give it a 1 instead of 5 because of it's near gamebreaking negatives, I've actually deleted the game because of it's lack of theater, paywall and lag and bought Black Ops. GCI does have similar gameplay to Black Ops but it's original and 100% worth owning if you don't have Black Ops and you like character customization, the character customization in this is AAA, that alone is what makes this game so special, 5 may seem like a very low score but a Theater mode is a must for any type of shooter so you gain the ability to exploit lagswitchers/hackers, it's only possible to do via a shooter's Theater mode. If this had a Theater mode I would give the review an 8 which is deserving. Expand

    Even with the enormous amount of customization options, plentiful weapons and gadgets and a rather solid progression system, Gotham City Impostors can't hide the fact that it's a fairly ordinary shooter, despite the colorful packaging.

    [G]ripes aside, Gotham City Impostors is a surprisingly solid shooter and with the sizeable first DLC drop, Warner Bros. is promising improvements across the board. If they deliver on that, consider upgrading this score to must-buy status, rather than a nice-to-have. [April 2012, p72]

    An addictive game, pulled apart by terrible matchmaking.
