Download of the Week - Pretend to be Batman and The Joker in Gotham City Impostors beta

Platform: PS3/360/PC | Pub: Warner Bros. | Dev: Monolith Productions | Price: Free

All our downloads are piped in with the lightning-quick Virgin Media 50Mb Broadband...

OK, so the Batman universe isn't exactly the first place you'd head to in order to deliver a brand new First Person Shooter, but F.E.A.R. creator Monolith have done a bloody good job of doing just that with Gotham City Impostors.

This free beta gives you a taste of the frantic online shooter, that's more Team Fortress 2 than the po-faced Modern Warfare. The humour heavy FPS sees you bouncing on trampolines to reach roof tops, hang-gliding into battle and even customising your own superhero for that personal touch.

Check out the launch trailer for further proof of it's charm...

Want more DLC? Check these out:

Triple Town | iOS | Price: £free

The best new game to come to iOS in a while, this cutesy title marries town management with puzzle elements. Hard to explain just how good it is in so few words, so just get it, OK? Nice one.

Syndicate | PS3/360 | Price: £Free

The perfect opportunity to see if EA and Starbreeze have screwed over the original series. Try out the online co-op mode of this futuristic shooter to see if it can persuade (geddit?) you to buy it.

Ghost Trick | iOS | Price: £Free for first three chapters

We always felt that Ghost Trick was better suited to iOS while completing it on DS and now it's actually here. Become a ghost detective and manipulate items to find out who killed you.

    Shouldn't the article title read, "Pretend to be someone pretending to be Batman and The Joker"?

    The beta is awesome. My birthday's coming up and I asked a friend to get me psn card so I can get it.

    I loved GCI. I can't wait to get the full game and delve into the surprisingly deep customization and mechanics.

    So 360 owners cannot get a demo before buying? The way they made us sign up for beta was kinda shady, but I'm not crying about it. I just want to dip my toes in it before I plunk down $15 for it is all I'm saying.

    The BETA was limited access. You had to apply ages ago, I applied back before christmas. You aren't missing much. It is entertaining for about ten minutes.
