Summary: Parents need to know that Gotham City Impostors is a download-only game that's played online in various teams. While it's cartoon-like and over-the-top in its appearance, it's a first-person shooter that lets you wield many different kinds of real weapons (shotguns and explosive bombs, for example)...
Excerpt: Have you ever wondered what it’d be like if Batman decided he needed to kill some fools? Of course you have. But have you ever wondered what it would be like if it all took place under a Team Fortress /CoD scope, ya’ know, without actually playing as Batman? Me either. But you know what?
Excerpt: (Note: This review was written after the matchmaking and DLC patch for Gotham City Impostors was released, which means a number of issues the community had been experiencing on Xbox 360 have been ironed out. These issues are still mentioned in the review for context.)
Excerpt: More so than any of Batman's various forms over the ages, Gotham City Impostors seems to harbour most of its influences from the Adam West era, with slapstick noises, goofy humour and corny dialogue taken straight out of the 1960s.
Excerpt: game without any of the property's principal characters seems like it'd be a complete farce, a failure without end. But somehow, Warner Bros. and FPS-creating veterans Monolith Productions have made magic in this budget-priced, online-only competitive shooter, and they've even managed to do this...
Conclusion: Some achievements can very tedious to get or impossible depending on your skill. The promotion achievement requires you to get to level 100 which will take a long time no matter your skill level.
