It's unfortunate that Singularity adds another episode to the series of games that are released only to need a patch or two from day zero. In all fairness, if it were not for the glaring texture streaming problem, Singularity would likely be one of th...

Time flies, except when you tell it not to The world is full of mysteries. What killed the dinosaurs? What is stored in Area 51? Why—oh dear goodness, why—does anyone think Dane Cook is funny? And now, there’s a new head-scratcher for that list: Why...

Singularity is an average FPS game that has some interesting ideas that could have been better realised. It's a fun game nonetheless as the pacing is good and the set pieces are well scripted. The TMD also makes combat interesting as there are so...

Of all the bad things that Activision has done over the last few years, the worst is that they didn't market Singularity more. Sure the game was delayed a bit after getting an interesting viral campaign launched for the game, but it's a shame that...

At its best, this is an insanely entertaining first person shooter. It takes too long to get going, and lacks ideas sometimes where it needs them the most. But when it hits its stride it's genuinely first class gaming at its peak. Activision -...

Raven Software has been creating first person shooters longer than some Call of Duty players have even been alive, but they have never been able to find the massive success that long-running developers like Bungie, Epic, or id Software have....

Early in the Cold War, Soviet engineers under Stalin discovered a powerful and volatile element, E99, on an island off of Russia’s eastern coast. They promptly established a research station on the island, deemed Katorga-12, in hopes of harnessing the...

This generation, Raven Software's releases have failed to rise above average. Their last two games, Wolfenstein and X-Men Origins: Wolverine, were both seen as good games, but neither proved to be all that memorable. That might be related to the fact...

Raven Studios’ Singularity may never escape the comparisons to BioShock. Focus sharpened on the plot? Check. Special powers, upgradeable weapons, creepy enemies, and even creepier environments? Check, double check, and triple check. There are even...

If you've exhausted the library of stellar games that 2010 has already produced and are looking for something to help bridge the gap into this fall, Singularity isn't a bad choice. The gunplay is solid and there are a few memorable set pieces. It is a...

International Review By GAMEcore on 50

Onda ryssar, krig, vapen och linjära korridorer. De är standardingredienserna för ett FPS och Singularity har dem, men kan en tidsresekrydda skänka lite nya smaker till ett beprövat koncept? Conny...

Es gibt Spielertypen, die lechzen nach Innovation. Und es gibt die eher konservativen Zeitgenossen, die mit solider Oldschool-Kost durchaus ihren Spaß haben können. „Singularity“ ist ohne Zweifel für die letztere Zielgruppe gedacht und bietet in der...

Är tidsmanipulering och galna vapen i en spelvärld som inte riktigt följer alla naturlagar din grej? I så fall borde du kolla upp Singularity.När jag först besöker den sargade ön Katorga 12 och sakta utforskar de ödelagda miljöerna så känns...
