  Fairly Decent

| | See all McArdellengilinger's reviews (14)

But it needed more. I rented this game - something i suggest doing (my local store allows you to keep the game for a week)
The game needed to be longer, I completed it in 3 days, and it doesn't give much reason for replaying, there are 3 different endings which can be got by just doing the final 5 minutes again.
There should have been more travelling between now and the past, and more choices - really everything has to be done a certain way until the final 5 minutes when you get a choice.

  Sleeper hit of the year

| | See all iusedto's reviews (2)

This game is a blast.
Been playing in single player now almost non stop. The time traveling/altering and also the concequences are very well done.
The weapons are very well desigend and have great sounds plus the monsters are diverse.
At times this games reminds me a bit of Bioshock 1.

Multiplayer is very fun but nothing to special.

  good old school shooter

| | See all Brendcam's reviews (7)

Fans of old PS2 shooters will like this game, i like the fact that it has been released without any hype. makes a nice suprise when you play it for the first time.
The graphics could be better but are pretty decent, AI can be glitchy at times, sound can be up and down at times and the cut scenes can be hard to hear sometimes.
BUT these are the downsides, the upsides are the gameplay is very good and smooth, the controls are easy to use, the timeshift shory line is very good and clever.
The first couple of hours can be tense and make you jump when the lights are out, weapons and upgrades can be likened to bioshock, you can interact with items in the world like audio recordings, these help you get an understanding of why your there and what has happened before hand.

Only gripe is this is checkpoint game so no saving at any point in the game, when you play on normal difficulty it is a bit easy at times with ample ammo and health kits.

Any hardcore gamers can see this as a good classic shooter, needs to be played if only to see how PS2 shooter used to be.

Great game!

  Good game

| | See all Panzer28's reviews (27)

Im about 85% threw this which isnt to bad on my first go but maybe i should have started it off on the hard difficulty, its a good idea with great weapons and loads of blood and gutts,maybe if they do a second one they could fine tune it alittle and hopefully make it longer 4/5

  Could have been something

| | See all StilezStores1's reviews (6)

Started off promising up until the a sewer level then I lost interest. The time device you acquire starts of being pretty nifty but once you've time-altered your 60th object the nolvety begins to fade. Not bad but nothing special

Singularity is an old fashioned shooter with a cold war setting. Health pack pickups feature throughout and there's the odd boss battle replete with giant monsters with glowing weak spots to show you what to shoot at. Weapons are improved and upgraded at regular intervals and feel meaty with good use of sound and force feedback.

With the cold war setting, it's the ruskies who take a battering instead of the traditional Nazis but enemy AI is very basic, with Russian enemies running into your gunfire and ducking behind cover whilst leaving their heads sticking out.

The first mutants encountered give the game quite a Dead Space feel but, as you progress through the game, these are replaced with other mutants that remove any feel of survival horror tension, though they do make the game more frantic.

The time manipulation mechanics are well implemented and easy to use, if a bit rudimentary. Similar to TimeShift, your TMD (time manipulation device) can be used as a weapon and to manipulate your environment, an ability required to solve the majority of puzzles encountered. These puzzles, though, are hardly taxing and their solution is usually well signposted.

All in all, this is a decent game that's worth playing, if only to see what shooters were like several years ago.

  Great fun, very entertaining... a good benchmark!

| | See all 20X20Vision's reviews (8)

Great story, with nice transition from cut-scenes to actual play. Visually very nice, with great audio (had to mute amp, as I thought it was raining outside...) Gameplay is pretty seamless, with good control setup. A lot of thought has gone into the sets, character design and props... enjoy them. Thank-you postal service for delivering early too. If you enjoy dark corridors, eerie sets and a good mix of 'nasties' then you will not be disappointed. Maybe too much ammo littering levels on normal mode though...
