this is a good game picked up at me local gamestop reactley for there buy one get one free sale and for being in that sale i didnt expect a lot from it but one of the best shooters around. i may like cod and battlefield but this was a game with a better story and havent played multiplayer yet but i will soon.
A above average shooter with sweet extra powers.
Singularity is a shooter that you’re not sure what to expect but once you get into the game play its surprisingly entertaining. So to start I know people have said game play is a lot like Call of Duty Modern Warfare. Well, Activision did develop COD and this one as well so it stands to reason the game play is similar, which isn’t a bad thing. The gun selection is decent but it would have been nice to feel like you could use more than two to three guns in order to defeat the enemies. The sound is good and the general sound effects help add to the fun of the game play. The store line is interesting and it makes you really feel sucked in to the experience of the game. One of the only real big problems with it I would say is that the powers you start to acquire are cool but it will probably take a second go around in order to find how much fun they are to use. So to conclude, Singularity is a fun shooter that will keep your attention for hours and will also make you want to play it again once you beat the first time. Chadilac /-\ttack
A good shooter with a dash of Bioshock & Metro
This game was a big surprise. I'd read nothing but good things about it.... but it was still a surprise to play a game that got practically NO pub and that I knew of no-one personally that had played it and have it be so enjoyable. For some reason, until I did some recent research on the game right before I decided to buy it, I had it in my mind that this game's big "gimmick" was that you could control bullets after you fire them. Since this didn't seem like an original or fun idea: i shelved the idea of playing Singularity. Upon playing the game: there is a SINGLE GUN that allows you to aim explosive rounds by "being the bullet", but it was far from the "main gimmick" of the game.
Singularity is an above-average First Person Shooter with some cool little quirks that make it better than the sum of it's collective parts. The graphics are decent-to-good, nothing amazing. The sound is also good without being remarkable. Game-play is smooth, aiming and movement is fluid, not quite to the point of a Crysis but good enough to not detract from the action. The things that bring Singularity over-the-top are: some of the enemy design, the ability to upgrade the multitude of different weapons, the cool sci-fi story, and the Bioshock-like upgrade system that allows you to modify your character in cool and vastly different ways. Without these things (and the weapons are REALLY neat) this game would probably be quite mediocre. With them, Singularity becomes a very memorable FPS, and one that is VERY worth the low price-tag that it current has.
Good game and I would recommend it to anyone! Reminds me a lot of the Bioshock series. Glad I picked it up today.
The Real Review
I picked this game up last week not expecting much based on how old it was. It was a nice change i thought this game would be a cheap knockoff of TIME SHIFT but no its better lots of cool powers catch grenades throw them back change a human to a monster its worth buying i didnt get to play multiplayer but im sure it would have been good
Get It For The Price!
This Game Is A Hidden Gem! Period! I Bought It Pretty Cheap! It Is One Of Those Games That Is Just Plain Fun! Good Storyline Good Twist!
Not the greatest...
I was disappointed by this one, the hype built up around the game befre release seemed to promise a good game. Overall I found the game lacking. Story was shoddy and boring, though this was made up for with the weapons, being both original and fun to use. Though I ran into many issues with movement, health packs and glitches in the games graphics, it was enough to ruin my gameplay. If this game looks interesting to you, try it at pre-owned pricing, though I can't say you should expect much.
this game is awsome. the basic plot is that you are a US soldier sent to a secret russion test island. the first thigh that happens is you get coght in a time ripple that sends you back in time where a scietist is about to be killed, but then you save him (im prity sureyou have to). when you go to the present there are these mutant creatures. then after fighting your way throgh the island you get captured by the same guy you saved and right as hes about to kill you, you get saved by a person working for some organization who hates the scientist and sends you on a bunch of missions into the past to fix the future. i personaly prefer the single player because multiplayer is a little unfair (mutants with supid weapons and melee vs well armed people). this game is very unrealistic (very little changes to the preset) but it does do a good job explaining whats going on. this game isbasicly like darkest of days combined mith metro 2033. overall this is a great game.
Best monster game ever.
this game is a very good game the game the online is very good no prombles at all the guns are not over powerd
Great for people who liked bioshock!
This game is oustanding! I picked it up expecting the same old fps functions but its nothing like the other fps games! One minute your fighting crazy mutants in the dark and the next your fighting the Russian army! And with so many cool weapons and upgrades this game will never leave you bored. I've been playing it for the last two days straight and I cant wait to play more! The gameplay is great and the graphics are really good. The storyline is simply amazing! And there is nothing more addicting than this games multiplayer mode. I recommend this game for anyone who love fps games like dead space and bioshock. Over all a 10/10 in my opinion. Pick it up!
