Gotham City Impostors Review | The Controller Online

Scott at The Controller Online writes: "Have you ever read a Batman comic and wondered what the ordinary citizens of Gotham City were like? As you might expect, considering the things they have to deal with on a daily basis, some of them are pretty crazy. Monolith took to the streets of Gotham to give you a look at what happens when Batman and The Joker are tied up fighting each other. Copycat gangs, or Impostors, war in the streets. Gotham City Impostors has one of the most original settings we’ve seen, in a multiplayer shooter, in a long time and despite its goofy exterior, the action is dead serious."

wow, i think a 9 is way too generous. i would give it a 7 at best. the matchmaking is broken, the lag is what you expect from playing a P2P server game, the maps are a bit bland/lifeless.

side note: i love shooting someone in the back or chest with both my assault rifle and sub-machine gun only for them to run behind cover, a room, etc. and not die, resurface and kill me with 10 hits. i especially love when this happens when, the person im shooting at doesnt have armor, yet i do along with extra damage. theres also me getting shot at and i try to run into a room or cover (like they do) and i die before i can make it to that point. theres also the typical shooting at someone 2-3 seconds before they saw you and there it is again, they kill me.

besides these issues the game is fun, but i find myself being galled at the cheap deaths (as i explained above)

Lag is going to kill this game. I play it on the 360. Every room I've been in you get any where from 2-4 players with 2 red bars. I don't mind how long it takes to kill someone but it can get a bit crazy with lag.

This game is better then MW3?

At least I've actually been able to connect to games, the beta experience was atrocious. That being said, even when I have a full 3 bars for connection the game still freeze-frames for a good 3-5 seconds pretty much anytime an enemy appears on screen or I perform an action other than running such as aiming, shooting, jumping, etc. To me it just seems like completely broken netcode.

The other issue....which utterly makes this game trash is the dlc xp boost you can buy multiple times!!!!

Way to balance the game!
