First, the most important thing. Singularity gets the basics absolutely right. Character movement is fluid, the controls are easy to learn, and there are no lurching mini-loads.
The environments and graphics are top-notch. From the moment you "arrive" on the island, you know it's going to look good, and it does throughout.
Gameplay is also great fun. I've heard a lot of comparisons to Bioshock, which I didn't play but watched my roommate play. I suppose there are similarities, but Singularity offers it's own take on survivor horror FPS.
The storyline is excellent. Playing with time often causes a muddled story, but here we have a great altered past/present that must be fixed, and the history of the island's downfall is well detailed in notes and recordings you find. Get all of them. Also, the climax is a big moment for your character.
Your time-altering abilities are great fun to use. Power them up as soon as you can, especially the one that creates a sphere of frozen time. This is extremely useful in taking out multiple enemies. It's fun to age a soldier to dust, turn "tics" against each other, and age/renew countless items. See a crushed, rusted crate? Renew it and inside could be E-99 (your upgrade juice), med packs and ammo. Sometimes this is imperative to continue, sometimes you just find more juice under a big branch you just "de-aged."
Happily, Singularity lacks any glaring flaws. If you find something you don't like, it's often down to personal preference. Health, for example, is (yes!) a good old-fashioned bar.Read more ›
First off, the story: This game is set in 2010, when American special-ops go in to investigate radiation spikes on a seemingly uninhabited island near Russia's coastland. After an EMPlike blast forces our hero, Captain Nate Reinko, onto the ground of Katorga-12, the mysterious island locale of the game, things go the way of epic Sci-Fi. The island is the site of a previously unknown element called E-99, and the Soviet Union devoted huge resources to research of E-99 in the 1940's and 1950's so that they could establish themselves as THEE world power. E-99 is exponentially more powerful than atomic energy AND has trippy time-altering effects. Needless to say, disaster befell them long ago and you're left to figure out what went wrong and how to fix a new problem in the timeline. Singularity's story dabbles heavily in time-travel and alternate-timelines via "Back to the Future" ish story twists. Most stories that attempt to tackle the time-traveling mechanic beast end up muddled and confusing as a result. Singularity does not suffer this fate. The story is actually quite fantastic for what it is, and make no mistake, it is very campy in parts. That's part of its charm. I found myself in awe of just how well implemented time travel and alternate timeline related plot twists are used in the story. I for one am very big on good story in games, and this one does not in any way disappoint. The characters are pretty interesting, the setting and locale are compelling, and the endings are very impactful.
The gameplay is solid throughout.Read more ›
In addition to that when some events start you can't immediately fire and after that usually can't aim for about 30 seconds, so you are stuck inaccurately shooting. Also some abilities share a button... which means it is very easy to unintentionally pick something useless up rather than making a time slowing orb for example. These issues don't sound major, but they make the game much less fun than it should be.
