The buzz around Raven's sci-fi shooter Singularity has been quiet lately. But it's finally arrived, and Abbie Heppe put it through its paces. From talking to her, it starts off very promisingly, but seems as though it runs out of gas along the way. Here's what she means:
"I've read gaming statistic reports indicating that many times, only 20% of people finish a game and that seems what Singularity is banking on. I actually like the pay-off, but nothing the main character does in the game, even if he's just a grunt used to further the plotline, actually lends any weight to the final moments. For a game that is so initially engaging, it’s solely due to the world and not the characters. Ultimately, it is the mindless shooter fun (and abbreviated length) of Singularity that encourages replayability and not the alternate endings, which you can experience by loading the last save of the game three times."
