Excerpt: Gotham City Impostors is the poor man’s licensed game. It’s a Batman thing because that’s what sells. And it’s probably a first-person shooter for similar reasons. But, Batman never shows; nor does anyone especially recognizable. Instead, we’re cast into the slums of Gotham, wherein the socially inept gather and compete in ritualistic skirmishes. It’s a battle between the Jokers and the Bats.
Conclusion: The most damning aspect of Gotham City Impostors is that the tutorials and the NPCs stand out as the main highlight, which for a multiplayer focused title is a considerable problem. Add to this the slightly whorish way in which DLC is pushed to the fore, and you have a game that sadly lives up to its title; in other words…it feels like something of an imposter.
