Product Description

Product Description

Time is your weapon. Time is your enemy. Time is collapsing.

It's 2010. A powerful and wealthy Russian mercenary has reopened a mysterious research base on Katorga-12, an island off the coast of Siberia. This island was the site of Soviet experimentation in the 1950s that led to a catastrophic, Chernobyl-sized accident - the Singularity - that fractured time itself. Katorga-12 was abandoned, locked down and shrouded in secrecy until today.

You play as Nate Renko, a U.S. Air Force pilot sent on a recon mission to investigate new, wild readings coming from Katorga-12. Your plane is brought down, and you quickly find yourself in the middle of a massive Russian cover up that started during the Cold War and that threatens all of humanity today. You fight to survive, and to stop the Singularity from spreading and destroying the world.

  • Intense Combat: Fight your way through an ever-shifting environment haunted with time-ravaged creatures, while sudden time waves hurl you back and forth between 1950 and the present day.
  •  Time as a Weapon: Use the TMD - the Time Manipulation Device - to change the age of objects and enemies for your combat advantage.
  •  Conspiracy-Driven Storyline: Unravel the mystery behind this top-secret Russian military experiment before it's too late.
  •  Epic Sci-Fi Environments: Explore a graphically rich, fully interactive world with Unreal 3-powered lighting, physics, and effects.
  •  Compelling Multiplayer: Test your skills and strategy in unique, time-based multiplayer action spanning across two eras.

Amazon.co.uk Review

It's time for a new spin on the first person shooter, with this innovative new adventure that gives you control of not just three, but four dimensions. Parachuted onto a mysterious island, that has fallen victim to a failed Soviet experiment, you find the whole areas is constantly moving backwards and forwards in time between 1950 and 2010.

The TMD has a devastating effect on living enemies
Repair this bridge instantly by moving it back in time
A Cold War experiment gone awry could destroy the world
Russian Spetnaz troops are also on the island with you

Russian soldiers are the least of your worries though, as you discover bizarre new mutant animals and plant life that has its own ability to move through time. Luckily you gain a TMD (time manipulation device) which gives you your own powers, including rewinding time and instantly aging any object.

The TMD can also freeze enemies in place or throw them about like a gravity gun, giving you a unique set of tactical options in combat and when figuring out the island's secrets. When you do it's a race to defeat the time singularity from destroying reality forever.

Key Features
  • Singular story: Uncover the mystery behind island Katorga-12, as you battle modern and Cold War era Russian soldiers and the bizarre mutants created by the time singularity.
  • Time control: Unique TMD (time manipulation device) lets you turn back time, freeze enemies and instantly age objects.
  • Creative control: Destroy an enemy's cover by aging it to dust in front of them or recover ammo by pulling supplies back through time with the TMD.
  • Puzzle time: Use the TMD to open a lock by instantly rusting it or return a collapsed bridge to its original state in the game's many ingenious puzzles.
  • Time to die: Utilise the unique time controls in the game's equally innovative multiplayer modes as you manipulate the battlefield to your advantage.

3.0 out of 5 stars singular or plural? 23 May 2011
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
To be honest I didn't know too much about this game when I picked it up other than it was a FPS and it had received some OK reviews. It was one of those purchases that was going to prove to be a bargain or a waste of money that could have been spent on a bargain bucket meal at whatever fast food establishment of your choosing.
After playing this game to completion I can say that I'm edging towards it being a bargain but only just! That's not to say it's a bad game as it ticks all the boxes well, but that is where the major issue lies with this game, you get this overwhelming feeling that you have seen it all before. It appears that the developers have `borrowed' a lot of good ideas from previous titles, mixed them all together and served them to the end user. This is nothing new in the games industry and many titles do have similarities to their competitors but at some points during this game I felt like it was a case of spot the reference. This in turn stops Singularity from gaining its own identity in the already overcrowded FPS market.

However, its not all bad news as what has been delivered is a fairly solid shooter which keeps you fairly engaged with the storyline which is a rarity in itself these days. Graphics and sound effects are very good but that should be expected on this generation of machines by now as developers have had enough time to get used to the hardware. The one thing that seems to be the constant theme of games on this generation that Singularity buys into is the short campaign mode which seems to be over by the time you have started to warm up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fab original game 8 Aug. 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game has a great storyline to it, the game makes you feel like you are in control & makes you feel that you can change the story/outcome..... I wish Activision went full out with the marketing on this game, because it is a awesome game if you like plot twists and time hoping. The only niggles I have is the texture streaming issues at one point in the game but that was just a small hiccup (its running on the unreal engine), the scond is that there isn't any chapter reply menu so if you wanted to see something but didn't you would have to play the game again until you got to the point in the game where you wanted.

The game mechanics are simple to learn & most importantly FUN... The AI/NPCs are fun to kill and each environment in the game has character and 1 or 2 stories to tell.
All in all this is a fantastic game to play & the multiplayer modes are fun as well. Hopefully RAVEN Software will make a Singularity 2, 3 & 4 (thats a clue for the end of Singularity 1 :P )

By Luke H
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Singularity is without a doubt, to my mind, one of the most underrated games released this year. It's seemingly derivative nature, combined with a glut of recent top-tier shooters has seen it slip under the radar of many gamers. I, however, would encourage anyone who likes sci-fi, and FPS' in general to check this one out. You'll be pleasantly surprised.

Singularity starts with a bang. And a slight sense of Deja-vu. The island of Kartorga 12, an abandoned research complex where the Russians discovered a new element (E99) has the U.S.A worried. It's emitting energy spikes, and a crack team of US soldiers are sent in to investigate. However, before you can take breath, the team's helicoptor gets hit by what appears to be an EMP, causing them to crash. You wake up, and set out to find the remaining members of your team.

Now, i'll try not to spoil the remainder of the story. But needless to say, it involves your character 'Nathaniel Renko' traveling through time to 1955 and back again to 2010, seeking to undo damage done in the past that has caused a catastrophic chain of events that has left the world royally screwed.

The reason I have cited both Bioshock and Half-Life as influences on this game in the title, is well, because, the game takes elements liberally from both. The Time Manipulation Device (TMD) that you recieve about an hour into the game functions like plasmids do in Bioshock. It is powered by E99 which you are constantly accumulating and using throughout the game to do a number of things. You can reverse time on an object, like a staircase, and in doing so return it to it's original useable form. You can use it on enemies, to age them to dust, or revert them to horrible disgusting monsters that attack and puke on other enemies (I kid you not).

5.0 out of 5 stars F.U.N. 24 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
got this game last week by off chance and it,s made by the people who done the last Wolfenstein game which i thought was excellent. After completing Singularity single player 3 times now, i have got to say it,s a great game with great weapons,powers and the upgrades are prety cool and the best part is you can pick which ones to upgrade and which ones to use. But the best thing about this game for me is it,s really fun to play which is kind of missing in some games these days.

Overall this game may have taken a little from Wolfenstein,Bioshock & Half Life but Singularity for me has it,s own identity and just hope they made a 2nd game.
