Summary: First of all while this did basically steal and re-envision Bioshock's theme and gameplay the combat does have a very different feel because the powers, enemies, and even how the weapons work/shoot are very different. The main problem is you can't save any time, and it inconveniently saves before you pick up items and all that. For example, while in a room that gets flooded with mobs you need to destroy about 20 egg things first. The room is very difficult...
Summary: If you're tired of all the military shooters the industry is shoving down our throats, Singularity will be a treat for you. The story is interesting and engaging. Grahpically, the game will not wow you, but the island of Katorga 12 is beautiful and often times reminicent of Bioshock. Lots of dark run down areas filled with history and personality and others that are lit with beautiful colors.
Summary: This game is a bit like Bioshock and even more like Dark Sector. In fact, I get the distinct impression that this is the game that Dark Sector wanted to be if it had a higher budget- only without the fun of getting to throw the glaive with it's aftertouch ability. The biggest problems with this game are that the controls aren't customizeable, and you don't get to save when you want.
Summary: I enjoy this genre. But, this game just lacks so much and forces me to rate it as average. Let me say that I beat this game before posting this. Singularity is somehow underdeveloped. First off, regular things like subtitles are totally gone for both dialog and cut scenes. Well, that just sucks alot since you have to listen to broken English of Russian NPCs who are voiced by English speaking actors trying to make it sound authentitious.
its not for everyone, fun and and has its highs and lows

Summary: its not the best game out there but its not the worst, its a game that you cant go in to w/ a serious mindset or you will hate it from jump street, the story isnt its strong suit but the fun and shooting mixed w/ singularity device and supple weapons make this a game worth adding to your collection, it wont blow you away but you will be entertained.. its inexpensive and its worth getting and playing..
Summary: I've played at lot of FPS games and this was about average. The campaign wasn't very long, and generally entertaining. I did jump a few times during the game and the storyline had a few twists. If you play this game I recommend you try each of the 3 alternate ending the game offers, one of which I had never seen before. The main feature of the game, the time manipulation device, can only be used in certain areas and only with certain enemies.
Summary: I bought this game for one reason, the multiplayer. It looked like a lot of fun when I saw game-play footage online. I was pretty excited to play online when I got the game; only if there were people online to play with... Out of all the times I've tried to play online, I've managed to play 2 successful games. Usually I end up waiting for like 15 minutes while the game searches for more players, then turn it off in frustration.
Summary: There is nothing new in this game that you haven't seen elsewhere before. The combat is decent and the story is a typical sci-fi time travel escapade. I played the campaign on normal and it is incredibly easy for a number of reasons--they've strewn a plethora of health packs throughout, most of which you won't even pick up because you've already maxed out; all the weapons are too powerful and you also have the ability to upgrade them; and you have the ability to freeze...
Very good, but very short. Probably best as a rental.

Summary: Singularity is an excellent one-player FPS experience; unfortunately it is only about 6-7 hours long. These few hours of gameplay are extremely fun, and I plan to tackle it again as you can approach the many awesome set-pieces and enemy encounters in a myriad of ways, but you could really get away with knocking this game out twice in a single rental.
