Batman! Biff! Read this massive legal agreement before playing! Pow! And this one! We know it's a pain, you'll be playing soon. Now your Games for Windows Live ID! Now create a Warner Bros. ID! Checking for downloadable content...

Holy b****cks. Class-based shooter Gotham City Impostors snuck out of Warner's back door earlier this week, which strikes you as unusual for a first-person shooter based on one of the biggest licenses around and made by Monolith, developers of Condemned and FEAR. Something to do with its extraordinarily large amount of in-game purchases, perhaps? Or maybe Gotham City Impostors isn't... you know... any good?

Its matchmaking system certainly isn't. It almost never works quickly or smoothly - instead, be prepared for regular waits of five to 10 minutes, frequent cancellations and dropouts, and many disconnections. This is an exchange two of my teammates had as a new game finally started:

Gotham City Impostors delayed

Warner Bros. pushes release back a month.

Gotham City Impostors, the downloadable multiplayer FPS from F.E.A.R. developer Monolith Productions, has been pushed back until February.

Gotham City Impostors Preview

Gotham City Impostors is all about obsessive fans. Obsessive fans who, as is so often the case, happen to be both slightly unstable and very heavily armed.

It's a multiplayer-only online shooter set in the Batman universe - but because Batman doesn't actually like to shoot people in his universe, Monolith, the game's developer, has had to get creative. The solution it's come up with is to offer players the choice between two opposing teams of cut-price vigilantes decked out in cheap costumes and weighed down with home-made gadgets and weapons.

Drawing inspiration from the real superheroes and villains, these gangs have called themselves the Bats and the Jokerz, and they spend their weekends blasting each other to pieces. This, in case you haven't noticed, is the set-up for one of the weirdest licensed games you'll have seen in quite a while.

Multiplayer FPS from F.E.A.R. studio.

Gotham City Impostors, a multiplayer downloadable FPS from F.E.A.R. developer Monolith Productions, is in the works for PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade.

According to Kotaku, you won't actually play as Batman but as a customisable "imposter" of one of the characters from either Batman's wider circle of friends or The Joker's motley crew.

Apparently you'll be able to tweak your load-outs, costumes and character stats for play across a series of different game modes and maps.
