The Bin: Singularity

Some games aren’t worth the $60 release price. Or half as much, for that matter. How many times have you bought a game and told yourself that if it’s terrible, it was only five bucks? This brings us to the “Bargain Bin” realm of gaming, a second glance at games far enough down that they don’t see light. Guilty pleasures are a blast — so long as no one’s watching. (PC, PS3, Singularity, Xbox 360)

This is a good game. It has a bit of that Bioshock feel in a more Soviet theme, but it still has a lot of originality. The biggest issues for me were:

1. No objective compass meant you often missed exploration by triggering the next areas. In Bioshock you knew where to go, so going other ways opened up secrets you could find. In this, I missed a lot of areas.

2. Puzzles were not what they could of been. The time theme was awesome. I think they could of really do better with using your powers in both combat and puzzle solving.

3. I wish reading notes paused the game. There were a few areas where you could read notes and listen to tracks but there were to many guys and they just killed you in the midst of reading. Plus the audio tapes where location sensitive and if you walked away you couldn't hear them. Should of been able to just collect those things a la Bioshock.

Other than a few things I was more than happy with this game.

Was a fun game. I even got into the multiplayer for a while. The community died out super fast though.

I loved this game got it for $15 on ebay thought it was a kinda bioshock meets metro 2033 feel to it, for the price I paid was 9/10 imo......now for $60 not so much it had a lot texture pop in issues ect.

Ah, Singularity. Despite the short campaign, the game was brimming with good atmosphere, awesome time control and had a bioshock vibe to it :D Really wished Activision would make a sequel instead of CoD MW4/CoD BO3/CoD Blah Blah.

Those damn bugs on the hardest setting....I swear to god man...lol. The section where you're dropped into a den full of them. Died 15 times.

Anyway...awesome game. Love the time powers and the weapons were awesome.
