I just got it too cheap as hell, and it's a bit clunky compared to CoD or Halo, or a number of other FPS games.

My main gripe with the game is the shitty health pack system. Not only is it a dated gameplay mechanic, this game makes you defenseless while applying it with a stupid animation.

You could certainly waste that money on worse cheap ass games though.

Minus the annoying health pack gripe, which I def agree with, I think this game is pretty fun. Using the time manipulation is a cool, new idea and provides a new twist on the FPS genre. If you can find it cheap, or rent it, I'd recommend.

if you can pick it up for cheap, then i say go for it. Its pretty fun, and while it does have some annoying parts (such as the health packs and the tape recorders) its defiantly a fun playthrough.

Excellent single player - probably my favorite campaign of the year that probably would have been in GoTY discussions at least a little had it not been for the abysmal multiplayer.

I've just finished the story and I enjoyed it a lot.
For less than $10 this is a bargain and I fully recommend it at that price!

Achievement wise the full 1000 is easily achievable although due to the limited number of maps the mp starts to get a bit tedious after a while. But its still active enough so that there is always a game to join in the evenings.

Don't listen to anyone--pick this game up!! I can't believe how badly it was marketed, this is a total, total sleeper game. Definately well worth the money...

I'm only part of the way through the campaign right now, but it's the most fun I've had in quite a while. I'm surprised at the low reviews, as I would definitely give it an "A". I didn't like Bioshock and I never played Bioshock 2, and despite the similarities, I think this is a much better game. It also has some elements that remind me a lot of Half-Life 2. If you like HL2, then you'll probably like this. Either way, it's definitely worth a low price. I picked it up for about $15, and it's well worth it.

tl;dr - If it's cheap, buy it!

I also am enjoying Singularity despite not having liked Bioshock. The two games do have a lot of similarities, but this one feels like more of a shooter.

For only $10, which is I think about what I bought it for, it's pretty good.
