wow did activision throw this one under the bus at release, a short but very underrated game with a cool story and interesting gameplay. Lacks originality but makes up for it in not being the typical modern-shooter.

This game is cool as hell. The time play is really well worked into the story, and the time mechanics in combat are really awesome. The graphics are nice, the art is really good, the gunfights are really well integrated. It all works really well together. I can't lie, though, this game steal A LOT from Half-Life 2. If you've played both before, you will really see what I mean. That aside, they picked a good game to mimic, because this came out really well.

Singularity is one of those "old" FPSs that still sort of works. The graphics are good for the era they were made in and still holds up pretty well, the story while barebones works, and the weapons (while a bit vanilla but with a few interesting new ones) are satisfying to use. There is a fair bit of enemy variety, and you get a few neat time powers to kill them with. You can upgrade these powers using in-game currency, but the upgrades are pretty much just power boosts. You can also upgrade your weapons using kits found around the game, but again it's pretty basic, increasing stats but nothing else (the guns don't look any different). Once you get the ability to freeze time in a big bubble thought the game kind of gets really easy.

Overall, this game is essentially Bioshock, only using time manipulation instead of genetics, but a fair bit less intricate.

The Good
- Story works
- Nice graphics
- A barebones leveling system
- Explores the idea of alternate timelines pretty well
- Interesting level design

The Bad
- Fairly short
- Very little replay-value
- Can only carry 2 guns at a time
- Fairly easy


Final verdict: I'd recommend this game if you're just looking for some quick shooting time with some time powers, but you might want to wait until it gets discounted.

ONE OF MY FAVORITE GAMES, AND ONE OF THE MOST UNDERRATED GAMES OF THE LAST 10 YEARS:

The first time I bought this game, I picked it up in a Kmart bargain bin for 20 bucks in 2012. I didn't many expectations, bit any I did have were blown out of the water. I'm a huge fan of bith sci-fi and historical fiction/alternate history, and this being a glorious combination of the two was the perfect game for me. It's the smooth fps feel of a Call of Duty campaign combined with the quality story and special powers that give it a Bioshock feel. I recently picked it up during the last steam sale for 15 bucks and it was easily worth every penny. At $30 as the normal price, I don't know if I would recommend it unless you're a fan of everything I mentioned previously. I've played through it once in 7 hours on normal, but that was while exploring jjust about every nook and cranny and listening to every audio recording I could. You could blast through it much quicker if you would like. I would definitely recommend this game.

Good game. I advise making liberal use of your special powers to optimize the experience. It is pretty easy to plow throw large chunks of it like a standard shooter with upgradable gear. Using the abilities you accrue will differentiate the experience. Perhaps playing hard mode first run would encourage more TMD.

I played it intently and enjoyed it over the span of a few days. It kept my interest solidly though likely you have played similar games. Singularity has an excellent element, leaving it to you most of the time to enjoy. The preset experience requirements of, as we say, TM, feel limited. This game is on an enjoyable mission to the pleasantly cool ending.

Competent visuals, sometimes very good indeed, in particular the variety of time manipulating devices. Good sound, I experienced a handful of minor audio glitches. Visual glitch only if I adjusted a particular setting in registry. It is well documented via search though I did endure a small amount of trial and error.

The game is a few years old. Good gamepad support. Requires editing registry to change many settings resulting in improvement or a potential crash on run condition, again all well documented. Oob it ran like it should on Windows 10 though I did need to adjust settings further.

It works well enough @ 21:9 though requires editing windows registry to set correct resolution. Its not perfect but I did not feel the need to utilize flawless widescreen, perhaps benefitting from a recent to date of purchase patch. Elements are not ideal but like many titles the core is solid and I was not distracted.

Yeah, this is a good game.

Neat story, great shooter mechanics, good graphics .. I don't think the story is too bizarre.. First part of the game is the weakest part IMHO. Graphics, as I said, are nice.

Another game that is having check points????!!!! I don't get this... Are today programmers not able to make a good code
where you can save the progress whenever you want?... It looks it is like that unfortunately!
Cannot recommend this game therefore...

You cannot save, but got the message: All unsaved progress will be lost. Are you sure you want to quit...
How stupid is that...?

I gave it another try, 'cos it actually isn't a bad game...
Then next next issues:
I got captured... all my weapons and upgrades were gone...
I got only pistol afterwards according to game script... got that updated (more damage, bigger clip)...
However, I need 10 shots to kill this mutated enemy and there were 5 send at once to make my life heavy... i don't have enough ammo for them even after weapon upgrade...

But what is helping is to uninstall then game, not to lose more nerves on game logic...
As said, not a bad game, but also nothing for me as it looks...

A fun hidden gem. It has its faults: Bland characters, only decent storytelling, kind of a weird type of ending, and just plain no desirable personality within the game itself; but it is a pretty alright story and a fun game, and you become a pretty strong death machine toward the end with all the weapons and upgrades. Decent 9 to 11 hour experience with v cool gameplay mechanics. The worst thing for me was the voices, all the sound effects overpowered them most of the time and you couldn't hear them, but anyways, like i said, it was pretty fun.

Singularity is something of an underappreciated FPS from a somewhat underappreciated developer. Having already put out classics like Heretic, Hexen and Jedi Knight II, Raven again went on a solo effort with Singularity in 2010 and it was largely deemed 'pretty good' by reviewers. However, I think it's much more than that. Although hamstringed a little by a few modern FPS conventions, Singularity does a great job of feeling like a classic shooter, ending up somewhere awkward between Serious Sam and Call of Duty.

To its merit however, the enemies are smart and strong despite being a little cliché, the weapons all have a lot of punch and character, even if they're a machine gun, shotgun, sniper rifle, etc. and there's many secrets, upgrades and places to explore despite being a mostly linear game. In short, Raven seemed to want to make this game much more than the sum of its parts, and in my eyes, they completely succeeded. The time manipulation mechanic, despite being vital to progress, seems more like icing on the cake than a core game mechanic however, so don't expect anything more spectacular than an amazing FPS with some additional superpowers!

Average Game Length? I took around 8 hours to get through the story on the hardest setting, it could take more or less depending on your skill or desire to be a completionist.

A Bit Like? TimeShift, BioShock

Is It Fun? The TMD provides some serious fun, the story is engaging and the weapons make mincemeat out of your enemies, a big yes.

Worth The Price? £14.99 is pretty much half the price of a retail title, fitting considering you'll be lucky to get a multiplayer game going given the game's age and lack of popularity. For the price, the solo campaign is more than worth it although consider carefully that that's all you'll be getting out of it if you're on the fence.

One of the most over-looked and under-appreciated shooters of all time! Great story, great weapons, great gameplay. A must-play for any FPS fan. Nobody does it like Raven.

If you like the Half-Life, Bioshock, and F.E.A.R. series, horror and military shooters in general, and have a nack for depressing, sometimes confusing (duh.) time-travel stories involving a pony, this fine "best of" remix is for you.
The story isn't spectacular per se, but it does a great job of keeping you interested and guessing what's going to happen next during the roughly 8-12 hours it is going to take you to complete it, depending on the level of difficulty and how interested you are in reading notes and listening to audio logs and ponies, which is optional.
I recommend starting to play this when you can play through it in one sitting, allowing yourself to get sucked into the world and its story about a pony that...
Wait, pony? There wasn't a pony... it wasn't supposed to be in this... ruined the whole review... I need to travel back to the beginning and erase it... set things right... I'm sure nothing can go wrong. Wish me luck, comrade.

Bioshock, Half-Life 2 and Call Of Duty had a party, drank too much Vodka and had a gangbang. What was born after that party is Singularity. A decent shooter with an interesing mechanics that sometimes blatantly copies from each of the named games. It is fun, it is atmospheric and despite all the cliches and repetitions manages to have you play it without looking at the time,

7/10 for the decent game from 2010. URA!

What do you get when you combine Half-Life, Fallout and Bioshock? Singularity!

Even if you only liked one of those games, you will most definitely enjoy this.
Singularity might look like a jump scare fest. Not to worry, it plays and feels more Sci-fi than Horror.

A Few Features include:

* Heavy on gameplay.
* Light on "cinematic experiences."
* Upgradable Character and Time Manipulation Abilities.
* Around 10 hours to complete the game.
* Highly optimized - It runs REALLY well.
* Creepy Enemies.
* TONS of secrets, lore and currency to collect.
* 2 weapon load-out.***
***All weapons are upgradable and plenty of opportunity to play with what you prefer.

Asking $30 for this title is a bit too steep.

You might have to wait a while for the game to go on sale...
I waited over a year for it to go 75% off.

Check Amazon or Greenman Gaming for a better deal.

One of the most underrated games of all time. I've played it two times and i say it has an amazing gameplay and storyline and awesome graphics! It is a must have. Online still works but no players are on it BUT there is a workaround "Multiplayer Singularity Friends" or MSF is a Steam group to solve that!!!
