Gotham City Impostors

A short time ago the beta version of Gotham Coty Impostors went available for download on the PSN. Always wanting to test play games, I scooped up the opportunity instantly and have been having a blast. GCI is an online multiplayer shooter taking place in the DCU; more accurately in Gotham City. During the game you play as a member of either the Bats or the Jokerz, groups inspired by either Batman or the Joker. With a host of unique adhoc weapons and gadgets and colorful costumes, these groups take to the streets and wage war.
The art is stylized much like a comic, fitting with the DCU, and the graphics are quite impressive. 2D graphics in the menus add humor, showing the tone of the game. The control scheme is quite simple and intuitive, making the game easy to jump into. As you play through matches you gain experience and points with which to customize your character. There are several types of characters, each with unique load outs and special benefits; i.e. the "tank" character takes and deals more damage. However; you can create a custom load out, as well as appearance, voice and costume for both your Bats character and Jokerz character.
This being a beta, it may not completely represent the final product; but if it does, I would be greatly satisfied. Without divulging any further details, I will say that in some places the lip synching to dialogue was a bit off, but the action and gameplay were very enjoyable. This game appears to have a great comic book style and humor. If you have the chance, I suggest checking this beta out. It is a must play.
