Hooked Gamers writes: "It is not easy to create a First-Person Shooter that really brings something new to the table. Some shooters aim to offer players a sweeping story, others introduce a gimmick that lets you do weird or that defies any sense of logic, but can be fun to play around with. Personally, I prefer the storyline approach for the gimmicks are usually just that, gimmicks. Barring a few notable exceptions, the novelty of most gimmicks wears off soon, leaving nothing for the shooter to set it apart from its peers anymore. Enter Singularity."
