Summary: Parents need to know that Singularity is a mature sci-fi military shooter with high levels of blood and gore. The bodies of both mutated creatures and humans break apart and spray blood when riddled with bullets, and corpses -- including those of children -- are often spread across the landscape. All of the violence is in the name of righting timelines gone awry and saving the world, but the action is far too gruesome to be appropriate for younger audiences.
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: If you are one for immature humour, stupid storylines, surprisingly deep characters, or just blowing shit up, Bulletstorm is the game for you. Essentially, Bulletstorm is a slightly more sophisticated Serious Sam with a big-budget campaign slapped on the top for good measure and a surprising cleverness under its simplistic arcade exterior.
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.
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.
