Both of these games look decent. Neither one looks great, and neither one looks bad. Both are cheap, and I'm interested in playing one of them. Opinions?

I bought Syndicate during a gamefly sale. Haven't played it yet... but if you're thinking PS3 we can play some co-op.

Singularity is the better one out of the 2 and a legitimately good game.

I haven't played either, but I've heard WAY more praise for Singularity.

Don't get Syndicate, trust me on this one.

I've played through Singularity, but only played the demo for Syndicate. I'd say if you're planning on single-player, go with Singularity, but if you're feeling like co-op, Syndicate has a top-notch co-op mode.

Singularity is very good, Bioshock esque

I was going to say the same thing.....

Poor man's Bioshock...of the two I would suggest that....

Black Ops 2.

(Somebody had to say it)

I've heard really good things about Singularity, was thinking of picking it up myself sometime.

This.

"Don't get Syndicate, trust me on this one."

Trust him.

I have both and I really liked Singularity. Very good game. Syndicate is just ok.

Singularity is really good, syndicate is a decent game but a little hard.

singularity is a good game that offeres something different to the FPS world. But i would not compare it to Bioshock.

Both had really fun single player campaigns. Syndicate's more stylish, Singularity's more immersive.

Tough choice, really. Both surprised me.

Syndicate is honestly just as good as Singularity. Both play well and are made well enough. One truly isn't above the other.

Syndicate was just press E to win, over use of the bloom effect, and then very little instruction on what the hell was actually going on.

I spent a good ten minutes fighting the boss in the subway having no clue if what I was going was right or not.

I vouch for Syndicate over Singularity. The shooting mechanics are better, but graphics are about the same.

Singularity is a better game I really enjoyed it, as well the MP was crazy and fun. Syndicate there was something weird about that game I think it was you couldn't lock in to aim or something like that, like it is in counter strike

FC3 looks like FC2.5 to me.

Do you wear glasses, and forget to wear them when watching the Far Cry 3 videos??? How can you mistake a tropical island for a deserted Africa?

I haven't played Syndicate, but I have played Singularity. It's a pretty fun hybrid of a lot of other well known franchises, but still manages to have its own voice.

Singularity is actually a pretty good game.
