Singularity is a first-person shooter. A main gameplay device is an artifact known as the Time Manipulation Device (TMD). The TMD is powered by an E-99 core, and can manipulate time. The TMD can move an object backwards or forwards in time, attract something and hold it indefinitely, or send a pulse of energy that can stun or kill enemies. The TMD can only affect living beings or objects that have been in contact with E-99 (supposedly, almost everything on Katorga-12 is imbued with the element, but in practice, the TMD can only affect a limited set of objects). Some living beings, like the Spetsnaz troops who are covered in heavy armor designed to repel E-99, are immune as well.
Singularity takes place on a fictional island known as Katorga-12, where Russian experiments involving Element 99 took place during the height of the Cold War. In 1955, a catastrophe involving experiments attempting to form a "Singularity" occurred on the island, causing the island's very existence to be covered up by the Russian government.
In 2010, a sudden electromagnetic surge from Katorga-12 damages an American spy satellite. A military reconnaissance team is sent to investigate the uninhabited island, but a second surge causes their helicopter to crash. Captain Nathaniel Renko, a member of the reconnaissance team, enters the abandoned scientific complex on the island, where he phases between 1955 and 2010.

I recently got this game and finished it in 3 days. It should take longer if you don't play it 4 hours a day(well i told you it is a good game...) Storyline is also very good and i like the ending where he- oh wait no spoilers :P I can already tell that there is multiple endings not just kill the boss and bye. Ok some screenshots and then more into gameplay.
Here you can see starting screen. That giant beam-thing is the Singularity.
Main menu. If you have played Dead Space you should see something similar.
Electromagnetic surge is released from Katorga-12
oooh so shiny-
Other chopper being "eaten" by the surge.
First time you pick up something you see this.
Throwing an explosive barrel with TMD
TMD being used to catch enemy rockets
Gameplay resembles that of Dead Space a lot. I mean gear upgrading, very similar design menus etc etc. Thats not a bad thing(unless you hate dead space) and graphics are also great.
While you blast your way trough hordes of mutated humans and animals which resided on this island back in the day the Singularity sometimes goes off and you get shifted into a different time. So if you change something in that time you get shifted back to 2010 which too gets affected by the change in past.
The TMD can also be used on enemies. You can freeze them in time, age them so they turn to dust and many more things. There are a lot of situations where it would be impossible to get trough without your TMD. So its not just your gun!
Cant tell a lot about ending but it suggest that there might be part 2. Well cant tell much more without spoiling the game. Overall very fun game, good graphics, good storyline. If you like games like Dead Space, Bioshock and Timeshift definitely get this one!
My rating 10/10
Wow 10/10 again?
Yes! Because while playing and advancing in storyline there are always some unclear and mystic parts which get revealed in the ending. While playing you always have this feeling that there is something else going on that you don't know about. Well i just loved this game and as i said super fun gameplay and good storyline!
