    I didn't see a thread for this, and I searched... But if I missed something then mods feel free to close/merge.

    Figured since the Beta for this is out on PSN now, that it deserved a thread,
    Downloaded it tonight, was playing for the past few hours. Gameplay is fun, and the concept is pretty good, but everything is just so...
    Annoying. Thats the best word I can use to describe it, annoying. The voice acting is pretty terrible, for one. And just... I dunno.
    It feels like it's trying to hard to be "quirky". What are your thoughts?

    I agree with the popular belief that it's a TF2 wannabe. One you have to pay for, at that. Meh.

    Well, it was announced while TF2 was still for $20.

    I was super excited for this game,
    But then I saw it.

    I'm not trying to troll, honestly.
    It's just everything about it seemed sub-par, derivative but somehow lacking in the quality of the source, and completely out of place for something with 'Gotham City' in the title -even if the title is 'Gotham City Impostors'.

    I weep at looking at this game... Because it was Monolith that developed it and like all their FPS' they've made were something that I really enjoyed. The looks of everything in look funny as well but all the feedback I hear aren't good.

    Was this suppose to be a pay by monthly game or something like that?

    I don't mind it, the gadgets are fun and it's got some nice twists on the traditional CTF/Domination style game modes. I do wish there was more variety in gangs though, for example Two-Face and Penguin thugs could easily be made into teams... But for $5-10 I've played a lot worse on PSN/Marketplace.

    I'm enjoying it so far. I usability don't like shooters that are in first person. If it had in third person, i'd be even more into it.

    Anyone still playing this? I've played in both PC and Xbox betas and, of course, bought the game when it came out. Aside from the time sink of waiting for players and getting a match going, I really enjoy the game. It's a lot of fun, there's a ton of variety in terms of weapons, abilities, and passives. If they solve their connection issues, this could be the consoles TF2.

    This game is odd, but interesting. I'll keep an eye on it.

    First free DLC hit today. We have a new map, the 25th Floor, which is awesome. New costumes, 2 new weapons (already hate people who use the ninja blade), new voice, and new fun facts. Oh, and it also seems to have cleared up quite a bit of the connection issues. Come check it out.

    It looks..., 'Hm.'. I can see the TF2 knock-off side of things.


    Shame the Arkham City thread is uninhibited at the moment.

    I'm disappointed others aren't playing this. I'm very much in love with this game. It's a fun, quirky shooter that is fast paced and well balanced. If there is anyone playing and they're looking for someone to shoot with, RhinoxDX is my xbl handle.

    this was a game that needed a huge player base to keep it chugging over and it just does not seem to have happened.

    its a shame its a nice game in many ways.

    We got the second paid DLC today, the Steamy Punk Pack. It adds a new weapon which addresses some issues people have been having with campers as well as a new map, the third they've added.

    Monolith is really supporting this game as am I. I'm having a ton of fun rolling around as a Joker or a Bat.
