Earlier last month, I reviewed the open beta for Gotham City Impostors. For those unfamiliar Gotham City Impostors is a downloadable game developed by Monolith. Civilians dress up and model themselves after Batman and the Joker. These two factions decide to take matters into their own hands and shoot it out. The game has a similar feel to Team Fortress 2 as it has a dark sense of humour as well. Is Gotham City Impostors a competent shooter or is it a poor imitation?

Smithers takes Maggie and escapes with Bart, Lisa, Homer and Marge having to fight across Springfield to save Maggie. It has been over 20 years so does this diamond still have any shine?
