Singularity is a game with spectacular presentation and some great ideas, but altogether wobbly FPS mechanics. It's 2 quarters Call of Duty, 1 quarter Bioshock, and 1 quarter Half-Life; and these pieces come together to form a solid, action-packed experience. Now that you have a feel for what Singularity is about, let's get into the review.

The visuals of Singularity are a product of their time, but get the job done well enough. It shines most through its great lighting and world design, but textures are flat and undetailed. There are also frequent stutters during some levels, which seems to be a product of poor PC optimization. As far as the gameplay goes, Singularity does its very best to be unique and give the player something new to do, and does so by introducing the Time Manipulation Device (TMD) about 2 hours into the 7 hour long campaign. The TMD is a piece of tech that can send objects, either living or environmental, backward or forward through time. It's often used for simple puzzles, but most commonly in combat. You'll be upgrading the TMD all throughout the game, and by the end you'll be stopping the time of your enemies so you can gun them down with ease, aging them until they turn to dust, and even blasting them to bits with waves of energy. The base FPS gameplay is sadly highly generic though, with non-impactful gunplay and unintelligent AI. However, when these two aspects of combat come together, an exciting and tense experience is formed as you challenge yourself to orchestrate more and more creative kills with each progressing combat sequence. Next, let’s move on to a plot examination. The game starts out with you, Nathaniel Renko (a spec-ops US soldier), flying in via chopper to the Russian Island of Katorga-12. Strange occurrences have been observed there by US intelligence, so you and your squad are sent to investigate. This mission quickly gets you wrapped up in decades old experimental time manipulation science that the Russian government had abandoned- and as you find out, for good reason. The final element of Singularity that deserves praise is its game world, which never ceases to wow you with its environmental story-telling that details the dark and fascinating history of the island. This element fades as the game gets closer and closer to its climax though, but does serve as a great way to pique your interest at the games start.

In the end, Singularity amounts to an enjoyable and thoughtful Sci-Fi FPS that can be banged out over a weekend as long as you've got some spare time. It's time manipulation premise served as a great gameplay element, but did end up bogging down the story, as anything related to time travel in fiction almost always does. All in all Singularity definitely impressed, and I can easily recommend it to anyone in the mood for some fast-paced action mixed in with an intriguing story and game world. However, do be sure to pick it up on sale when it (usually) goes down to $7.49, as I doubt it'll be worth $29.99 to most.

Personal Rating: 8/10

This game is one of the most awesome first-person shooters I have ever played. I am a big fan of the Half-Life and Unreal series and I was in desperate need of a substitute. Singularity was just that. It's a thrilling and tense game. It has realistic gameplay in terms of hiding, running and combat actions, yet it features many horror elements that add that extra bit of excitement and unexpectedness to it. I loved it.

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.

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.

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.

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!!!

Gameplay:um! Ok it just regulary fps game plus and awesome T.M.D(time manipulate device) that very freaking cool
Performance:even low setting you can enjoy a graphic but it doesn't have a f*cking subtitle

Con:if you are bored,Singularity will answer your question

the game is good lord knows how many times i raged or got scared but the reason i dont recommend is cause in my opinoion thre is a point where devs need to know a gameplay bug is a gamelplay issue this is not so much a bug but it neglects to tell you within an hour that you can switch out weapons at lockers and after you get captured sh*t all comes in cause you get a crappy pistol and you run out of ammo so quick so i got to a point where it saved so i couldnt go back for guns :( if u still buy it remember dis

Singularity is a great game, very under appreciated, it really deserves a sequel.
It first comes out as a Bioshock rip off but I actually enjoyed a lot more than that game, it's a crazy mixture of that with Half-Life 2. And maybe inspired the end of Bioshock Infinite? This would not be the first time that a imitation inspire the original franchise.

What it really needs improvement is the PC port of the game because this is obviously a direct X360 port, to confirm this you just need to look at the low resolution of the textures outside of the main areas and, off course, the "Saving, do not turn off" warnings.

The game don't have a lot of graphics options forcing you to go to REGEDIT to tweak the few extra options like Volumetric Light and Anisotropic filtering (Don't try to run it with the DX10 enable, the game don't support it , I don't even know why there is a option for that) and if you want anti-aliasing you need to force it in your graphics card options.

And if the game suddenly don't want to start anymore just reinstall PhysX and will probably fix it.

This needs a least a re-release with improved graphics, advanced options and with full steam integration.
