Story
In the dark, Cold War winter of 1949-50 Stalin, the brutal leader of the Soviet Union, had two super weapons: long range missiles and the atomic bomb. But even if his teams of forced labor managed to build a missile powerful enough to carry an atomic payload, Stalin still faced encirclement by the United States and the Strategic Air Command. He knew that he needed another advantage over the United States, one that would ensure Soviet security and superiority. Then came the chance discovery on the remote island of Katorga-12 off the wild Kamchatka peninsula, of a previously unknown material, Element 99 (E99). E99 became the new source of Stalin's hope: a new energy source of unparalleled power. Unfortunately, the new element also yielded a new kind of contamination risk. But these were acceptable risks to Stalin - anything for the advancement of the Soviet people. Even so, on September 21, 1950, driven to complete the project, and in violation of the safety protocols, a Russian scientist, Viktor Barisov, personally triggered a device powered by E99 that caused a catastrophic event that affected the entire island. What happened next is unclear. However, there are reports that Stalin's final dying order was a handwritten scrawl to quarantine Katorga-12. And so the knowledge of the island remained buried...until 2010, when intelligence reports in the west confirm activity on a remote atoll in the Russian Federation's shadow. The world has no memory of Katorga-12. No concept of what may be on the island off the southeast coast of Russia. It is deemed that the world can't afford another Chernobyl - or worse. America's answer is to scramble a stealth flyby of the area. They need recon - and they need it now.

Gameplay and Weapons
Action in Singularity is a mix of combat mission gameplay and puzzle-solving. Combat is against both modern and 50s era Russian forces, as well enemies mutated through exposure to E99. In this players have their choice of conventional weapons including: pistols, shotguns, machine guns, sniper rifles, rocket launchers, etc., as well as as few Sci-Fi weapons very specific to the game. These include the TMD (Time Manipulation Device) and the E99 pistol. The TMD is a gauntlet, which players acquire early in the game that can be integrated with conventional weapons. Its main function though relates it its ability to alter time within a small specific area. The major examples of this are:

    Reversion - The ability to alter encounters by rewinding the history of an item or entity to the time of your choosing. This can be used to repair broken items, render enemies harmlessly embryonic, etc.
    Aging - The ability to alter encounters by fast-forwarding the history of objects or entities, rendering the former rusted and worn and the latter decrepit with age or simply dust.
    Stasis - The ability to freeze time and thus dangerous situations in order to gain an advantage.
    Impulse - The ability to propel objects frozen in time in a targeted direction.
    Chronolite - Functionality that allows the player to look back to a time associated with a place, person or object.
Players can also utilize the TMD in conjunction with the E99 pistol, a gun that shoots bullets infused with Element 99, to hit targets unreachable due to distance and otherwise indestructible cover. In addition, to the TMD's combat uses, it is also indispensable as a tool for solving the spatial-oriented and other types of puzzles that players will face on the island of Katorga-12.

Multiplayer
Singularity contains multiplayer gameplay options, that just as in its single player campaign, integrate conventional combat tactics and weapons with the time manipulation elements.

Key Features

  • An engrossing storyline blending Cold War history and science fiction elements.
  • An arsenal of first-person weapons, including conventional firearms and upgradeable, time altering gadgets.
  • Mission progressing puzzle-solving gameplay.
  • Advanced graphics built on the Unreal 3 game engine.
  • Multiplayer gameplay options.
  • Xbox LIVE support including LIVE Achievements.

Product Description

Fight your way through an ever-shifting environment haunted with time ravaged creatures, while sudden time wave hurl you back and forth between 1950 and the present day. Use your wits and the perfect weapon - the Time Manipulation Device - to unravel the conspiracy on the remote island of Katorga-12

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Nice Surprise.... August 30, 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First I would like to say that my favorite types of games are Adventure, FPS, and RPG's (in no particular order), as I believe this makes a difference when reading one's review of a game.

I can say that this game really surprised me. I went into Singularity with absolutely no expectations, as I had heard nothing about this game. After about 30 minutes into though, I was hooked.

There have been a lot of comparisons of this game to others, and while I feel it does have many similarities to others it does not come across as a cheap imitation either. It definitely holds it's own. Now, having said that, if I were going to state any similarities, then I would say it's like Bioshock and Wolfenstein had a baby together, and they called it `Singularity'. I loved both of those games, and it's like Singularity took those and meshed them, for a new, yet familiar feel. The engine is the same as was used in Bioshock if I believe (the unreal engine). There is more of a FPS-feel than is in Bioshock, as this game has your more typical weapon options (compared to the drill in Bioshock 2 or perhaps the spear gun). This does not mean the weapons are not fun and full of variety. I loved them. There was a gun for everyone (Sniper, exploding darts, machine guns, shotguns, chain guns, pistols, grenade launchers, etc...), and each of these you can upgrade. Not to mention using these in combination with the TMD (your Time Manipulation Device) was fun as well. The flashbacks in time was like your Wolfenstein world, and the present was your Bioshock world (i.e. soldiers and more of a military feel in the 50's scenes, while in the present there were mutants running wild in an abandoned old settlement).

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Game. July 7, 2010
By Adam
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
1 part Doom3,
1 part BioShock,
add a dash of time manipulation,
shaken not stirred.

About as challenging as Half-Life 2,
About as long as Gears of War 1 or 2,

Worth playing twice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Singularity review June 30, 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
When I first heard of Singularity last fall, I was pretty happy since I like science fiction style FPS games. Well, after a delay or two the game came out and I am pretty happy I bought it.

PROS:
-Eerie atmosphere (akin to FEAR) that can, and will, keep you on edge
- unique enemies that each take some thought as how to defeat
- A pretty good science fiction/alternate reality story (I won't spoil here)
-Good gunfights, some thoughtful weaponry
-Good multiplayer, unique because it isn't just another "soldier v soldier" match, instead it is creatures v soldiers
-On normal, the campaign is probably 8 to 10 hours long, so it isn't short by any means, maybe typical of fps lengths.
-It is similar to the Bioshock/System Shock 2
-I enjoy not knowing what situation will come next in the campaign, keeps me on edge
- Campaign jumps between the year 2010 and the 1950s

CONS:
-AI needs a little work, but puts up a decent fight (I'm on normal)
-Not too many multiplayer modes yet
-No subtitles or place to reference previously found notes and tape recordings
-tape recordings
-fairly linear story (I don't mind at all, but some people want a more sandbox style FPS, I guess)
-Iffy Russian accents
-Unfortunately, too many backwards "R" letters, and many of the films or posters are written in english, but using Russian Cyrillic characters to spell which seems lazy or cheesy to me since I know a bit of Russian.

It may seem like there are a lot of cons listed, but really they are nothing major and more of just personal taste for me. I really enjoy this game and intend to play it for quite a while. If you like atmospheric FPS games then go and buy this. Ideally you should have pre-ordered as it came with a free copy of the 360 game "Prototype", a 1GB usb memory stick, and a multiplayer skin for the regular price of an Xbox 360 game.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Excellence of Execution February 27, 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Singularity's Multiplayer Experience is the best I've ever seen. The enemies
are always near at hand waiting to be killed or kill you. The maps are full
of twists and turns that allow you to gain an upper hand. The weapons are
perfectly balanced and make killing monsters fun. The controls are dead simple
to learn. You can pick up the multiplayer and be throwing exploding barrels
at troops inside of one minute. How's that for immediate gratification.

It's a shame that millions of people are playing games online that are a lot
less fun. Too bad for them. More fun for me!!! Singularity Multiplayer
Extinction is the best.

The playing field is tilted so that you're always going uphill or downhill.
Downhill leads to the beacons you must light. Uphill leads back towards the
troops you must kill. So you always know which way you're going. Brilliant!
The person who thought of that was a genius.

Usually each map has two spawn points that can be lighted up. Naturally huge
fights break out around those all the time. And keeping the beacon lit when
six people are out to stop you is a real accomplishment.

I can't recommend this game highly enough. Just wish we had more maps and
more players and more support from EA.
