    Singularity is an opportunity missed. It was so close to being at least a 9 rated game but a few things really destroyed this game for me. At first the game opens up and appears to be fantastic. It is quite obvious this game was heavily inspired by Bioshock, Wolfenstein and maybe even Dead Space. The problem is it relied too heavily on those games and didn't duplicate the best parts ofSingularity is an opportunity missed.

It is quite obvious this game was heavily inspired by Bioshock, Wolfenstein and maybe even Dead Space. The problem is it relied too heavily on those games and didn't duplicate the best parts of those games very well. The result is a game with a lot of problems, not so much glitches or anything but the game falls more flat than it should given the great atmosphere and ideas it had. It is a fun game make no mistake but it is very hard for me to give it a rating higher than 7 because it lacks the depth of the games it tries to copies. What really sinks this game though is online. The creatures and modes are probably the most ingenious part of this title yet the matchmaking is probably the most brutal of any game I have ever playing in my entire life. Not only was it always (no exaggeration) a struggle to successfully get into a room, it was near impossible to actually finish a match to help you get some kills that counted toward acheiving some trophies. Overall a really fun game that really had some major problems tying up loose ends. Quite a shame because a lot of potential is obvious when you first play it. Worth a single play and sell quick. I do want to stress that the single player campaign is excellent and I wanted to score this game higher than a 6 but with offline being essentially completely broken I had to score this game a 6 so it would appear as a cautionary rating.

    While having very little new ideas it combines all the good parts of other shooters.
    1 multiple endings. (Adds last-ability.)
    2 The PDT. (A grav gun. Puzzle solver. Weapon.) 3 special weapons. (All those E99 weapons were pretty good.) 4 An upgrade system. 5 A really strange yet interesting multiplayer. With all this in mind Singularity is by no means new shooter or the best. But definitely

    Singularity feels like it rips too much from other brilliant FPS games like Bioshock and Resistance 2 to be memorable enough. Granted the shooting is solid and fairly enjoyable and the flux capacitor (TMD) is a nifty little device. Also the puzzling sections are pretty good, though they are very predictable and too easy to solve.

Is Singularity a good shooter? yes, it's solid enough for quite a bit of fun but it's presentationally nowhere near as brilliant as Bioshock and the graphics feel very last gen. Expand

  1. Enemies are practically defenseless in the face of your super-powers, and the puzzles never advance beyond the basics.
  2. With a bit more ingenuity in the puzzles, more made of the time travel and a little more graphical "oomph", Raven and Activision could have had a real gem on their hands. It's still well worth a look though.
  3. In the end Singularity is a decidedly average shooter with a pretty novel storyline.
