1.0 out of 5 stars So Tedious without user saves, March 9, 2013, 9 Mar. 2013
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars

A good game with excellent graphics and good action. However the lack of a user save process does make the game tedious. The only save is the automated save and as another reviewer says, this deletes all previous saves. You can't go back and unlike for example DOOM3 where you can replay sequences that are challenging or enjoyable this is a one way street. Get it wrong and you are stuffed - back to the start and who wants to do that every time, go through the tedium of picking up all the bits again and playing everything from scratch including the initial helicopter crash - BORING. I played Doom3 multiple times with different weaponry and options - even though the graphics are not a patch on Singularity it really was value for money, this is not. The other problem is using the keyboard and mouse does limit the ability to hit multiple keys when needed, something not apparent on a games controller. What otherwise would deserve five stars gets one. Obviously not written with the PC in mind this really is a retrograde step. There is a very long winded way round the lack of saves - when the application states "saving game do not turn off your computer" (or words to that effect), wait until the game restarts and then exit the game. Go to the Singularity file in My Documents (Windows8 just Documents) Highlight the file 'Singularity/RvGame/SaveData/Player0.ue3profile', copy it and paste it to another folder in My Documents called say Singularity Saves, at which point you can rename it with something meaningful. If you want to go back just save the current version in the same way and delete it, paste the file you want back to the Singularity folder and rename it Player0.ue3profile. Cumbersome but it works.
