Excerpt: Playing a game in which the primary mechanic involves time manipulation isn’t exactly new, and it’s not always a recipe for success. For every Prince of Persia or Full Auto, there are two or three Blinxes. Fortunately, the competitive first-person shooter genre hasn’t been subject to as many time-bending experiments, so when a developer takes the risk to incorporate it, it’s a safe bet that the mechanic is going to work.
Conclusion: Its have two modes Soldiers vs Creatures (Team Death Match) and Extermination (very unusual concept of stealing beacons from human side and defending beacons from creatures side). At the end i can say that this game is great and its must buy for gamers who like deep gloom story lines in post apocalyptic style, great shooters mechanic, beautiful graphics, and most important soul in the games.
Excerpt: Raven Software is a well respected developer with several hit games in their library such as: Hexen, Marvel Ultimate Alliance, X-Men Legends, and X-Men Origins Wolverine. In follow up to the brilliance that was Wolverine, Raven decided to put that same game engine to use in a different genre: The First Person Shooter. From this stroke of genius and roll of the dice came the game Singularity.
Excerpt: Shown in private demo at last year's E3, Singularity looked to be a promising time travel themed title, even in the overcrowded first person shooter market. The game pits an American soldier by the name of Nate Renko in the middle of time bending tale against an enemy revived from the Cold War, the Russians. The quest for power in this timeline revolves around a source of unlimited power called Element-99 and how it shaped the course of history.
Excerpt: Singularity review Game Over Online - http://www.game-over.com Playing through the opening sections of Singularity brings up some strong comparisons to BioShock; the foreboding feeling left by a once glorious scientific community where something went horribly wrong, killing (or mutating) the island’s inhabitants. Then there’s the always prevalent search for E-99, which can be used similarly to BioShock’s ADAM, to upgrade your abilities.
Excerpt: Yes, Singularity took a good amount of inspiration from 2K’s “genetically enhanced shooter” series, but it also manages to do a few new and interesting things when it’s not borrowing from one of this console generations best new franchises. Oh, and you also get a glove that gives you special abilities that can be used, like Plasmids, to attack enemies or solve puzzles.
Excerpt: Sometimes I have to wonder how good ideas go bad. Singularity is a game that had a lot of promise and is actually quite fun to play at times, but just does not live up to the standards that other games in the shooting genre have set. It is a decent effort that will undoubtedly get overshadowed. If only the developers could go back in time to add an interesting multi-player mode and were able to speed up the overly slow storyline, we would be in business.
