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.

Since the game is kinda short (it took me 10 hours to complete), I really advise to buy this game only when its on a sale.
But nevermind the shortness, this game was really entertaining - the developers put some very nice ideas into this fps.

I really never got bored within the 10 hours, since you get new powers and weapons frequently.
Also the story is really well done and kinda tricky. You can get different endings, depening on the decisions you took in the game, wich gives the game some replay worthness.

I really can recommend this game, if you like to enjoy a short but really well done shooter!

To say that Singularity wears its inspiration on its sleeve is to put it very lightly. The game is almost shamelessly derivative, taking the both the style and character building of BioShock, the gravity gun from Half-Life 2, and throwing in a few nods to F.E.A.R. However, this mish-mash of other games' ideas is by no means a bad thing. If anything, Singularity manages to almost play as a "best of" collection of FPS trappings, the ultimate compilation of cool gimmicks and toys seen in the genre over the past five years.

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.

BUY IT NOW!

Perfect game! It is in my top 3 together with Half Life 2! The multiplyer is unique too. The Creatures VS Soldiers Mode is a greath idea! Too bad there are just a few players on PC.

PS: Add me for MP. Singularity nickname: Black River

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.

Not a masterpiece. Another "evil commies" fantasy but still pretty good. It has nice shooting and time manipulation. Yes, a clear Bioshock/Half-Life ripoff but it is playable and enjoyable. Grab it on sale!

P.S. One major flaw - no subtitles whatsoever. That sux.

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.

Brilliant FPS, great plot, makes you think. Challenging in places, but there is always more than one way to complete a section you may get stuck on. I loved the plot. Definately a recommend, think I paid about £3 for it, so asolute bargain.

After getting used to smashing my knees under the table due to a fast approaching monster scaring the crap out of me, I really enjoyed this game.

Great concept, cool storyline and unique game mechanics.

It's just a shame it was such a short game. I completed it in 8 hours, and that's including exploring all the possible routes during each level.

If the game sounds are very low, even if you set the in game sounds on 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. The ambience irons this out, however. 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.
