Singularity (PC DVD)

5.0 out of 5 stars Windows 10 and no glitches, 29 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Singularity (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
I installed this on my Win10 laptop and played straight off. No modification or compatibility mode required. There were no drop-outs or bugs. Gameplay is fun and challenging enough without being frustrating. I don't normally like checkpoint saves, but they were frequent enough to avoid frustrating repetition.The time device adds interest and there's a decent storyline. At less than six pounds including postage, this was a very good buy. I didn't count, but playing time is more than ten hours.
Take a look at Timeshift, which is an older game in similar vein, but the combat is tougher. I'm now playing it on Win10.

This laptop case is a quality product at a modest price. It takes my 17 inch Acer Nitro, which is well protected by the (removable) corner buffers. The case has enough pockets and internal features for a travelling office.

Very pleased with this. It was difficult to get porch lights we liked with PIR's fitted, so this allows greater choice. Works very well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adjustable to fit anybody, 13 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this specifically for use in an armchair and it fulfills that purpose very well. It has a huge range of adjustment. My laptop is a 17 inch Acer Nitro, which is almost the same size as the table. The metal table is fairly smooth, so I strongly recommend the use of a rubber grip mat, which you can get in most pound shops.

Good value for a well known make. Delivered promptly. Fit as expected. The legs may be a tad long, but my experience of joggers is that the legs is where they shrink. I bought three.

3.0 out of 5 stars Such promise, such failure., 8 Feb. 2016

After 20 years of playing numerous FPS titles, this is the most frustrating game I've ever played. It has the worst AI I have experienced. Every enemy will target you, even if you are surrounded by an army. They will ignore other members of your squad, even if your squad is shooting them from close range. Your squad will often ignore enemy right in front or beside them. When your squad do decide to shoot an enemy, the enemy won't actually die until you shoot them yourself. You can command your squad where to fire, but it doesn't make any difference to the outcome.I usually play FPS as a lone gunman (Crysis, COD, MOH, etc) and I might as well be for what use the squad is. They are there for the cut scenes and storyline, and only die if that storyline demands it. Checkpoints are set too far apart considering the amount you have to accomplish to reach the next one, so you are condemned to repeat the same ground over and over.
The great shame is, this could have been great. The graphics are very clear and highly detailed, with a good variety of locations. There is a decent story running through it, though some of the cut scenes are over-long. They are, however, very well produced. Gameplay is very good apart from the terrible AI. I enjoyed Battlefield 3 and will play it again in the future, but I doubt I will ever replay this one.

Best handheld we've ever had. Powerful and effective. Good advice from another reviewer, don't leave it on permanent charge. The battery lasts ages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Here's a good tip, 6 Dec. 2015

I was dubious about how hard wearing the knitted cover would be. The tip has frayed where it meets the socket, but I've used this every single day for a year. I think a knitted tip is an advantage as it reduces friction and have no hesitation in recommending this stylus.
