I have been having so much fun playing this game. I get super scared at some of the pard so that is a huge plus. The best of it all is the story line wich is amazing. (9.5/10)

I ran out of games to play and i had ten bucks on steam. So i looked through games under 10 dollars. I kept scrolling througha and scrolling through till I found this game. I thought, welp its cheap and looks decent, might as well try it out. Within the first ten minutes I was in love with the game. I played through it in 3 days. It is one of my favorite games I've ever played. It had pretty good graphics, good combat, and good AI. But most of all the story line was incredible. It almost makes me upset with Bioshock Infinite because when you play Singularity, it almost seems as though Bishock took a lot of ideas from this game. For such a great game, I'm surprised it isn't more popular. This game is under 10 bucks, but is worth any 40 dollard game out there. Buy this game and you won't be dissapointed.

This game is a Half-Life-Like, maybe the only modern one actually.

It's linear with bit of exploration reward, the RPG features are simple and not overhelming, the feel is classic solid "story driven" fps and the TMD gameplay mechanisms adds a bit of puzzle here and there, with eventually cool powers. And the overall sci-fi/time travel thingy is catchy.

Sure the game isn't perfect tho. For example, I found the arsenal very poorly elaborated, and hands-on feedbacks are meh. Besides, I did the entire game with rifle and shotty as the rest is quite situational or not fun.
And also the major tone of the game is the same greyish all the way through, the maps are not varying enough, even from past to present. But if you go with the "communism palette and leveldesign" argument, well it stands I guess...

Except those, the game was at least trying to get us back at what made solo fps of early 2000s (or late 90s) so great, and succeed at it. Shame the game was so ignored and underrated. Maybe it's part of building a legend.
Singularity is a game that needs your love.
For 5$ on sales, I wouldn't think twice, it's the only iteration of its genre in the 2010s.

Of the hundreds of games I've played I have only ever replayed about half a dozen or so, and this is one of them. It's one of those games you keep telling yourself you will stop playing in 20 minutes, 2 hours later you're still playing. The gameplay is a bit like Bioshock meets Call of Duty on a dark and interesting Russian island base. It's very linear, but still a lot of fun and packed with good level design with plenty of choices for how to pick off your enemies.

I never heard about this game until I saw it on a sale with 75% discount. The reviews were okay, so I decided to get it.

What's good here:

- Graphics still look fine IMO, and my poor PC can even handle it without lag!
- The plot. I really like time travelling and butterfly effect stuff, even when it's impossible and ridiculous IRL.
- Upgrades for your weapons and yourself. Not a big range of them, but hey, it's not an RPG.
- The spirit of abandonment in the surroundings. Spooky!
- You can check all the endings in a single walkthrough.

What's bad here:

- Russians.
- No subtitles. My English mastery is not yet good enough to pick up every spoken word, especially when the speech has a mild ЯUSSIAИ accent.
- NPCs speak too quiet, so I had to increase the volume of my speakers every time they spoke and decrease after.
- Low replayability.

I'm russian myself, and I can't help but smile at silly mistakes in russian text the devs made in this game. They ruin the vibe a little. Seriously, is it so expensive to hire someone who speaks Russian, so they will make it right?
According to Steam, it took me 8 hours to walk through Singularity, even as I searched every corner and wasn't in haste at all. The game is pretty linear, but that's what we usually expect from a FPS. It's a nice blend of Bioshock and Timeshift, I'm satisfied.

This was an awesome game for 7 bucks. I enjoyed every aspect or it and tootally recommend it at the price. I know its a few years old, but I wouldn't have been disappointed even if I spent 20 for it.

Take the Gravity Gun of Half Life 2, Story and gameplay of Bioshock Infinite, and aesthetic Sient Hill. Combine them all, and you get Singularity.

In more depth, you get a device called the TMD which can not only gravity-gun objects, it can also age enemies to dust, create a bubble of frozen time, shoot a shockwave, and make objects change between an aged, decayed state and their new, shiny one. The combat is, essentially, the same as Bioshock Infinite. The story is similar as well, but no further details on that (spoliers). Finally, the monsters and areas are similar to Silent Hill. Strange, twisted monsters vaguely human, ruins of a town with blood, but few bodies. WhIle sometimes a bit lackluster, this game is fun and memorable.

great game this is. I think they should have made a sequeal. The game starts out slow but once it gets rolling it is a blast to play. Do yourself a favor and download Flawless Widescreen so you can adjust the FOV. I couldn't stand playing it for 5 minutes without increasing the FOV.

Solid game with a good level of difficulty. Not the most replayable game ever, but it will keep you entertained.

Highly recommended if you love dystopian communism, shades of beige, gritty monsters, gritty humans, and wishing everyone dead.

The game is solid, just solid. Everything is above average by which i mean that everything is standard but interesting. Gunplay has variety in different weapons and how you approach enemies. Story is your standard story but has interesting characters. The Island you fight on has been designed well and gives that WWII era feel where you would walk trough destroyed and abandoned cities.

Overall the game keeps you playing but you'll forget about it because it is not capable of giving you the feeling that you experienced something awesome. Don't pay more than a medium size pizza for it.

What an underrated gem of a game. How did this not blow up back in 2010?
Game is old from 2010 and it shows. But I did not have any problems with the game, and it ran smooth on my gaming rig.
Story was really good and the concept with aging and restoring objects are really good.
Main story was also interesting and I would definitely like to play a second installment in this series.

If you like story realated games the pick up this little gem and have a good time.

Great FPS with good graphics for its time, excellent sound design and ambience, and an entertaining (albeit convoluted) plot. Get it when it goes on sale.

I really liked it in the beginning, it showed potential but it just grows repetitive as the game goes on.

Still a good game, tho.

A decenet shooter with some interesting elements mixed in. The time travel aspect is neat, but its usage in the actual game world can be a little disappointing. I ished they would have expanded on its use in the world around. Perhaps have more visible elements of how your character alters time. Beyond that, using the time mechanic in combat is always a blast and gives a feeling of supremacy over all of your enemies. Usually, I hate the idea of a single man running and gunning through thousands of dudes and dudemonsters, but the ability to manipulate time actual makes it seem justified in this case.

The story itself is pretty neat. What starts off as somewhat confusing unravels itself as you progress. Admittedly, time-travel comes with its fair share of perdictability but Singularity still doesn't fail to engross, at least.

Ultimately, I'd recommend this game. It runs well, as I had experienced nary an issue with crashing or bugs through my entire playthrough. It's good looking with smooth framerates. A game worth any shooter fan's time.

This game is when I write these lines in promotion.
It's a no brainer under those conditions : buy it, have a good time and that's a good deal you will have made this week.

Classic FPS with modern touches. I wish the guns had a bit more bang to their shooting but that is about it for now.

Runs really well on older machines (750M all details @ 1360x768) on high details.
Use a widescreen program for higher FOV and more resolution options (I use 'flawless widescreen').

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.
