Go! Gaming Giant - Singularity Review

For those that don’t know, Singularity is the latest first person shooter from Raven Software, a company with a history of standout first person shooters. If you’ve ever played Soldier of Fortune, Star Trek: Voyager – Elite Force (don’t laugh, it’s a genuinely good game), Star Wars: Jedi Knight II or Quake 4 then you’ve been enjoying the fruits of Raven Software’s labour. However, if you’ve played the 2009 reboot of Wolfenstein, you’ve also been playing a Raven game… and that might not endear as much affection. While I do have to come clean immediately and admit that there is more than a little in Singularity that is reminiscent of last year’s uninspired Wolfenstein, these are very different games. (Activision, PC, PS3, Raven Software, Singularity, Xbox 360) 8/10

I'm a bit disappointed by how contrived the time manipulation sounds. It still look forward to playing it, though, and if it's half as good as TimeShift, I know I'll enjoy it. And I really don't get all of the hate towards Wolfenstein from everyone. What I played of it was really enjoyable and I think it was the best FPS of 2009. Different strokes, I guess.

same here man, the game sounded cool until it reminded my too much of Bioshock and timeshift having a baby and Singularity was the outcome.
I guess it still seems interesting, but it would have to be outstanding to stand up to other games in the genre.
I'd say a rental is in the future for me on this one, but purchase is a little too steep

Once I get the money, I'm definitely picking this up. It does sadden me that time manipulation doesn't play as large of a role as originally said, but it still looks like a great game.

great game! i'd say 8/10 is about right, nothing groundbreaking but a solid experience. mix HL2 and bioshock and you get singularity.
