The next game up in Time sink is Gotham City Impostors

After watching the trailer, I am sure you can guess the main idea of the game. People dressing up as either Batman or Joker running around killing each other. I really want to play this game and when it was re-released as a F2P game I jumped on it

Before you start the game you are thrown into training giving you a run down of the different weapons and items that are in the game also the dialogue in the game is amazing. It does not take itself too seriously by the one liners you say (or hear if you die a lot). It does take a while to get used to the game but if you have playing shooters like TF2 and COD you will get used it to fairly quickly depending on your skill. The game modes goes as follows, the standard TDM, a CTF mode called Psych warfare where players much get a randomly spawning battery to their area and hold it for a certain time. Once the time runs out the enemy team will lose their weapons for a short period leaving them open for attack. Fumigation where players must try and hold at least 2 out of the 3 spots to increase their counter to 100% and once it reached that point then a swarm of bats or joker gas will be released (depending on which teams wins) and finally you have bounty hunter, it is like TDM but with a little twist. When a player dies they drop a token and unless the token is picked up either by you or someone on your team the kill will not be counted on the team score.

With each kill you get, experience is gained which makes your level increase which in turn unlocks gun, mods for guns, items and so on. If you do not have the time for all that then you could drop some money in the steam store to unlock everything from the start. All in all you can spend a total of 150$USD to get items you could earn by leveling up but there are a few things you can only get if you spend money on it. Which makes some sense now because the company have to get paid somehow but not when you had to pay 15$USD to just get the game in the first place. Just like COD and its weapons achievements it has like get x kills with y weapon. GCI has it as well, it gives you a reason to come back and play the game again.

Overall I would say that the game is decent for couple of hours but after that it will lose its shine. I will not play it the same way I played TF2 or DOTA2 but it is nice to jump into a game once in a while and not get yelled at by teammates for doing one thing wrong *cough*DOTA2*cough* The game is worth looking into but I really doubt it is worth spending too much money to unlock  items you can get by working hard and leveling up.
