  1. Innovative time-altering mechanics and a great story make Singularity a refreshing action experience that will stand the test of time - unlike those poor Russians we slaughter.
  2. 87
    Singularity is a solid FPS with a working gimmick and a solid narrative.
  3. 85
    Singularity is a pleasant surprise. It could have been an average first person shooter game, but it has turned out to be a great game, with gameplay and visuals that deserve praise.
  4. Singularity is a solid SP-Shooter with some technical issues and many good ideas that haven't been pushed to their limits. It's still worth your time if you're in search for a decent story and some nice new gameplay-elements, but definitely not something anyone HAS to own.
  5. It looks good, plays great, has an above average story, but never manages to be better than the game(s) that inspired it.
  6. 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.
  7. Even if it won't go down in history, Singularity will delight horrific shooter fans, especially those who are now fed up with Rapture and Black Mesa.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I have always been a huge fan of time travel in sci-fi, and when I heard about this game I had to get it. I spent days playing this game while eating cookie dough ice cream, and I have to say it was well worth it.

    For starters the graphics are outstanding, when I play the game I feel like I am inside a messed up world, and the graphics alone will drag you in.

    The time travel mechanics work well here, and the game forces you to think about fighting in two different time lines, and it's a very enjoyable feature, and it keeps the game from becoming boring. For example you could be walking though an abandoned warehouse, when suddenly your transported to the 1950's warehouse full of enemy soliders. I also like the idea of what happens in the past effects the future, so when you are teleported to the 50's you can destroy something and then you can go back to the future and you'll find it open. You can also use time travel mechanics to repair things such as stairs and doors. The game also gives you a choice, and the ending is epic.

    It shocked me that the player character was responsible for the entire singularity event.


    Overall the game is amazing, if you liked bioshock and timespltters this game is a must.

    Years go by and I still remember it as a masterpiece. Hopefully a remastering or a second part soon.

It is similar to Bioshock, Wolfenstein & FEAR, & is a lot of fun. On the multiplayer side, there are better shooters, but If you enjoy single player story mode then it's definitely worth a shot. Considering the price you can get it for now, it is a must buy in my opinion Expand

It is not very original, but it does give some solid shooter action. I know the game is advertised for having the TMD and that it is riveting to use. I don't see it as a very different and new thing. It is practically the only element of this game that makes it different from Bioshock. (which I loved) It actually does somewhat remind me of a perk. So don't get me wrong I very much did like playing the campaign. The only thing is the factor of originality. Which is becoming a struggle in many games. But if you want a good solid first person shooter and don't care about originality, this is a decent game. Also, the online is a replica of Left 4 Dead, but it is somewhat bland. Expand

It takes what sub-par FPS games like Resistance 2 and BioShock did wrong, and not only corrects them, but vastly improves them. I loved running around Katorga-12 with my TMD and Shotgun, killing soldiers and mutants alike. Singularity also nails the creepy '50s Soviet feel, and the environments and enemies are perfectly rendered. A co-op survival mode or something like that would be nice, but even so the campaign itself is really fun. Expand

    This game has a lot of stuff, but is still basic FPS shooter. The enemies aren't interesting, weapons aren't anything special or feel neitherThis game has a lot of stuff, but is still basic FPS shooter. The enemies aren't interesting, weapons aren't anything special or feel neither powerful or weak. The game is also short. I recommend this game only for rent, because it has no replay value, if not counting three different endings. Expand
