Excerpt: Half-Life 2 meets BioShock sounds like a good pitch for a first-person shooter. Two of the most popular and well received games of all time, squished together to create something that combines the best aspects of each, from a publisher with the financial might to make it a commercial success too.

Even in the Single Player modes, the visceral fun of this title is to swap the controller around with friends and trying to beat each other's score and to rub your superiority in the other's face.

Conclusion: How can you go wrong with mixing a little bit of mystery in with a lot of shooting, unique weaponry, and time manipulation? While I’m not entirely sure, Singularity clearly avoided any major missteps that could have derailed its entertaining experience.
