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.

Just finally got around to playing this. A bit older style game, reminiscent of Half-Life 2 or Timeshift, but very fun. There aren't many FPS games like this anymore that have a good story and require gaming skills to play. The interestesting story coupled with unique weapons (particularly the ability to create time slowing bubbles) make this a great game that doesn't feel like just another shooter game. The endings were a bit disappointing, but all-in-all worth the experience.

This game now holds a spot in my top 5 games ever.

Everything about it is clever and well done.

The story, the weapons, the level design and the world they've created is amazing.

This is one of the few games I would say is actually parts of were 'beautiful'.

Pros:
+ Everything
+ Story (wow, rivals Bioshock and Bioshock Infinite - two of my favourite games)
+ Graphics still very good in this day and age
+ Art design is beautiful
+ Weapons are clever
+ Level design is awesome

Cons:
- None (that's a first for me!)

Just buy it, it is awesome and we should support a developer in the hope they make more great games like this.

One of my most favorite games.
Even though my steam account says 12.5hrs played , I've played this 3+ times over the years.
There is quite a lot of scope to play it your way even though it really is an on-rail shooter type game.
I would love to see another game with the balls to challenge the player.

The story is nice. The characters look good too.
But what I like the most is the gameplay. The TMD device is fun to play with. There're a lot of guns but many of them suck. There're a lot of upgrades, but that lead to one major flaw of this game.
You can't get all the upgrades through 1 campaign run, and you can't carry those upgrades to the new game. You have to start all over if you want to play again. Just why? It's so much fun that you start a new game without losing uprades.
The multiplayer aren't that good. So you can uninstall this game after you finish it.
So I say, get this game while it's on sales or it wouldn't worth your money.

If you hear the sounds of the game very low, even if you set the in game sounds very high, then go to control panel > sound > communications > and set to do nothing.

So I delayed in writing a review for this game, and while I normally do it after I play a title, my procrastination took over.

Singularity is an interesting alternate-history title, but is mostly under the radar due to general lack of attention. It sets the player in a timeline where the Soviet Union discovered a new compound under the designation "E99", but something goes awry and leaves the island a ghost town for decades.

The only faults I see with this game that could have been ironed out is its difficulty. The game is too easy to me and a few others, and feels afraid to throw a challenge. Another fault I noticed is the music is too climatic for a title like this. In my personal opinion, if you want to get the best out of this game, cram that music slider all the way to the left.

When this game goes on sale, I think you should pick it up. It'll definitely give you a nice 8-10 hours of gameplay.

While the game may borrow heavily from the likes of Bioshock, Portal or Gears of War, it does so in style: The cliche story is told with a good pacing, the scenery is atmospheric and the time powers are fun to use in combat making the game very well worth your time.

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 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.

An immersive science fiction first-person shooter with time manipulation mechanics that I highly recommend to fans of the genre.

You play as a soldier who becomes the wielder of the TMD (Time Manipulation Device). With it your mission is to rewrite history to repair the singularity and save mankind from utter annihilation.

You have an arsenal of weaponry at your disposal, most of which have a secondary fire. Your TMD also serves as a weapon - as it can age items and humans/monsters backwards or forwards. You use the device to navigate your way through the hazardous environments as well as gain an additional approach to firefights. You can upgrade your person and weapons by exploring and collecting energy cells.

Easy, Normal, and Hard difficulties are available.

Games of similar feel:
Wolfenstein Series
Bulletstorm
Quake IV
Call of Duty Series (Except with mutants).

Singularity is a forgotten gem of a game in which has time travel elements with a gun that can let you control the bullet. Also this game is a FPS and still holds up in the graphical department and runs well to this day.
Finally some people have a ploblem with the 3 possible endings of the game (not as bad as Mass Effect 3 but more like dues ex human revoultion).

9/10

Loved the story the first time around, but the gameplay is so much better on a system that can actually handle it.

First off, I need to state to not be put off this game is made by same makers of Call of Duty because this game is amazingly perfect. Now for the real review. How I first heard of this game was when I googled "games similiar to The Last Of Us on pc". Now you may wonder, what does this game have to do with The Last Of Us? Its not even Post Apocalyptic. While this is true what I believe the answer is both are Story Driven games. So once I read about the game, I became interested in the concept, the idea, of the TMD and the Singularity. I also want to add I thought I was fighting Nazis which to me would be cliche but you actually fight soviets. So anyways, if you enjoy Story Driven FPS and enjoy The Last Of Us, this is a must play. Half Life 2 may be classic, but this game surpasses that. So go buy this game and fight the past to save the future! Fight the Singularity!

This is another of Raven's under-rated gems, one of those games that's better than it has any right to be. It's a solid shooter that riffs on BioShock's environment storytelling but with a little less depth, and has an innovative time-manipulation mechanic that's sadly under-used, mostly reduced to a lock-and-key mechanic. But there's also some great level design and fun weapons to play with, so Singularity is definitely worth your time.

Still available on the US store, but sadly not on the AU store at the moment, which is a shame.

Katorga-12. Nevar 4get ;_;

In all honesty though, this is a "Hidden Gem" game if ever I've played one. A great selection of unique and fun weapons that all have weight to them (dat sniper rifle), a great gore/gib system, frantic combat with competent AI, a half way decent story, and unique time bending abilites that give you the edge you need in combat. Words can't describe how fun it is to put a squad of 4 or more enemies into a stasis bubble, walking into the bubble, taking aim and firing a bullet right between each enemies eyes, then collapsing the bubble and watching all 4 mean go flying backwards as their brains leak out the back of their foreheads. Or dropping a grenade at their feet and watching them explode inside the stasis bubble in super slow motion. Good times. And in the end game, when you get your final upgrade, you're literally a god amongst men.

This game represents what Activision COULD have given us- fun, unique, and well designed shooters, that encouraged fun over realism, weapons that all had unique functions instead of "This rifle shoots really fast, this one shoots in 3 round bursts, and this one fire slowly but deal lots of damage."

Instead we're stuck with a new Cawwa Doody every year. Our sins our great, and we gotta carry that weight. No amount of rewinding time will fix this now.

This game is a gem which i highly suggest picking up. The graphics may have aged with some textures not really looking great - this though really matters very little when you encross yourself in it's story whihch is told through recordings and notes scattered throughout the desolate and forgotten environment. There are many mini stories which where for e.g. you come across three dead bodies and suddenly you are transported into a vision of the past where you get to witness the final moments of these sorry dead folk. It really pulls you into the environment.

The excellent weapon play is really exiting with your standard Pistol, Assault, Shotguns, Snipers, Grenade Launchers with some additional old favourites like the "Gatling" style Autocannon and the Spikeshot which reminds me of the half life 2 crossbow but has explosive spikes, all of which can be upgraded - add to this nicely imagined power houses like the Seeker Rifle and the exquisite TMD which can age and de-age items, phase shift and pulse pound your enemies among other things. It really is a completely experience where your imagination lets you run free when getting into gun fights. I for mone thoroughly enjoyed using the TMD to catch rockets and grenades fired by the enemy and launch these back as payback (another huge reminder of the Half Life 2 Gravity Gun) - alkso enjoyable is capturing enemies in a time buddle and unleashing a volley of rounds into each ones head - wait for the time to run out and enjoy their heads explode

Games this reminded me of are - Wolfenstein, Half Life, Bioshock, Fear, Red Faction (with the destroying and repairing environments with the TMD and Pulse to see where you go) as well as Dead Space. It honestly has it all and is really worth the $29 if you can afford it and feel like a game which will thrill you for the 12 odd hours of game play.
