  • Excerpt: 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: 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.

Singularity (X360) - Review

VGChartz
6 August 2010
  • Excerpt: And they’re not the only ones. To say that Singularity borrows heavily from other games within the FPS genre is a massive understatement. Indeed, I think you would be hard pressed to play Singularity without name checking some of most iconic games of the generation. This doesn’t make it a poor game though, not by any means.

Game Over Online
4 August 2010
  • 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.

Singularity

Xbox Evolved
24 July 2010
  • Summary: While the single player is built solid and it's enjoyable enough to keep you playing, it really doesn't do a whole lot to make it stand above the rest. The game is worth playing, I just don't think you are goin to be overly enthused when you payed $59.99 for it and don't get a whole lot in return. The game has a serious lack of replay value and a tacked on multiplayer mode that you won't spend more then a few hours tops.
  • Pros: Intriguing story, solid gameplay
  • Cons: Limited use of TMD, nothing groundbreaking

Singularity review (X360)

  • Excerpt: No one can imitate the Pepsi formula. Many have tried to copy its distinct flavor, but after several decades, the cola (and everything we love about it) remains exclusive to the Pepsi brand.

(Xbox 360 Review) Singularity

The Entertainment Depot
20 July 2010
  • Summary: What Singularity lacks in originality it makes up for with nicely paced, action-oriented design that encourages exploration and playing with a lot of fun toys. A simple yet addictive multiplayer has a lot to offer but is, unfortunately, fairly limited. When put together, you have a first-person shooter that’s solid but not quite exceptional.

19 July 2010
  • Excerpt: Where would first-person shooters be without the introductory ill-fated helicopter ride? Like everything else in Singularity , there’s a whiff of the familiar to Captain Nate Renko’s first moments on Katorga-12, as he scrambles to figure out just what went wrong on a Soviet research outpost that’s been overrun by retching mutants and kitted-out Spetznaz.

  • Conclusion: A frenetic and fun title that is held short of true greatness by a lack of imagination in places, with a story that is only so-so and a multiplayer that needs a few more modes (and players) to be truly satisfying. Having said that, for a good old fashioned bit of entertainment, Singularity will not steer you far wrong.
