I really enjoyed this game.

It was better than most FPS' out now and had a vaguely interesting story and gimmicks.

'tun the enemy into a baby, give him a grenade to suck on and throw him at his buddies to show you mean business' xD

Also this games sales were horrendous... I recommend people to buy this game, the SP is great and the online is surprisingly fun.

Since Yahtzee already knows what I'm going to say before I say it, I'm not going to bother saying it because I've already said it and he knows I've said it and oh crap now I've gone cross-eyed.

Wow. Can we make laws that people who write for video games have to have actual writing experience and can show credible work?

And I just realized that saying that I didn't mention that my target was not Mr. 'Tzee, but the people writing this video game he's talking about.

Very good review as per usual. Yahtzee's videos never fail to entertain me.

All the people getting put on probation never fail to entertain me either.

Agreed, the the plot twist could have been so much better(if they at least tried to hide it).

Great review Yahtzee, definetely made my day.

You call THAT a twist Raven? And why the hell can't we use bullet time in a game ABOUT time manipulation? Are you afraid of making sense?

"Is the entire games industry being black mailed by the Russian Voice Actors Union?"
Now this is decent conspiracy theory. Maybe I'll start an international cabal around it.

Great vid but I could have done without the human centipede reference, as I've been trying very hard to forget that movie exists.

I laughed very hard from this review. While I had never planned to buy/rent this game. You do point out that the plot was bad and game play was bad just as I figured. At less I saw this one a mile away.

I'm wondering if I'm the first commentator who's actually seen the thing being commentated on (and therefore the first to not be reported. Which seems likely anyway, given the previous five or six. Anyways...)

This actually sounds quite interesting (at least to an admitted System Shock fanboy). I gather, since Yahtzee didn't completely rip it apart, that the gameplay doesn't suck. Might take a look.

Why did you have to bring up human centipede? I thought I had finally gotten over that. On the other hand, that may be the most appropriate analogy to the history of the FPS.

A good review, and the plot twist doesn't sound much of a plot twist. More like something you could have worked out, or motivation you could have gotten 10 minutes in. You fucked up, go sort it. Instead at the end of the game? My word that's strange.

Calumon: Someone told me I'm like the little girls on Bioshock.

Why doesn't Yahtzee review fighting games like Super Street Fighter 4 or Tekken? I have never seen him review one.

And as for the game's story, all stories involving time travel are typically crap so don't be to hard on this game in that regard.

Wait, Singularity is trying to say something to me...
"LOOK AT ME, I AM BIOSHOCK, HEAR ME....UH....ROAR?"

I can understand knock off games. Look at Darksiders...Zelda. I think that was right game...Anyways, I can take a knock off when it is done WELL. And it sounds like this game isn't done well.



WARNING...If you have some how NOT beaten Bioshock, Bioshock spoilers be ahead.








Also...RANDOM PLOT RANT.
Developers, a plot twist should never be obvious. The Bioshock 1 plot twist was brilliant because it played with what a gamer sees as typical. Throw us in a situation, give us a guy shouting orders, and we do it. In the majority of games, the beginning of Bioshock wouldn't be anything special. No question of "why are we doing this?" It is obvious, we do it because we are playing the game. The brilliance was in how what we see as a simple act of following a game's order was the plot all along. What it sounds like is that SIngularity was trying that, but forgot that we have brains. If you put clues in to hint at a plot twist, they need to be very subtle. Sure, if you collected all the audio diaries, the Bioshock twist wasn't that big. I collected a good amount of the diaries, and I didn't see it coming. But flat out placing statues that pretty much say "Hey look, this guy you saved rules the world now. Good job fucker!", then saying the plot twist is the EXACT SAME THING...that is fail.

While the game is very much a mash-up of elements we have all seen recently, I still found myself satisfied with the game. Playing through the game on hard does produce a few controller throwing rage incidents due to weird camera and uneven environment. The story is the weakest part of the game, but several of the weapons and Dead Space moments keep you interested.

I don't really recall that plot point as being presented like a "twist". It certainly wasn't the best game around, but worked pretty well as a big loud stupid dumb shooter, which I enjoyed almost every minute of.

HOW DARE YOU GIVE AWAY THE PLOT TWIST!!!!! But as plot twists go, that was pretty weak. The twist in Bioshock, i.e. "would you kindly...", is still one of the best in game moments I've ever seen.

OT: Was I the only one that hadn't heard of this game? Granted, I don't keep up on new releases unless they appeal to me somehow, but this just came out of nowhere.

And yet, despite Yahtzee ragging on it for five minutes, I can't decide whether or not to play it, aside from the fact that I had no interest to start with.

Otherwise this game is your average block buster shallow game/film(kinda like bioshock)....

Yahtzee does do fighting game reviews. Here is a link to an old review.

http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/zero-punctuation/189-Soul-Calibur-IV

FYI there reassion that they are rare is cause most fight games is the same old thing in different graphics. The only good looking one that is coming out is Mortal Kombat with 3D fatalities.

Except it gets them completely wrong.

Or do you actually believe that every box in the entire universe just shrinks after it gets old, like someone sat on it?

It's not a time manipulation device you have, it's a "fix or break things" device, which is completely different.

Well, this was a surprise. Him reviewing the game I mean, not him not liking it. I thought Singularity was pretty fun and I think he missed a lot of points that made it fun. But I agree with the laughability of the "plot-twist". Although honestly I enterpreted the "plot-twist" as something else.
The fact that you were the annomaly, not the saving. And the fact that you have to kill yourself in order to (maybe) set everything right again.
I'm gonna have to watch the video again though... I was sort of "dumbstruck" that he actually reviewed the game.

I was excited about this game last year when there was a preview in some gaming periodical and it was slated for release first quarter of 2010. I had hoped that the delay in release would be accompanied by an increase in quality, but it seems to have met with universal scorn and disgust.

I enjoyed the review, thanks for the laugh Yahtzee.
I however do disagree with it's conclusion.
Singularity is a game I quite enjoyed, seeing as it is less boring than most modern FPS games and it's "Gimmicks" actually come in handy on more than one occasion. Yes they're all stolen from other games, but frankly that doesn't make them bad. They work well, which is more than most gimmicks in other games manage.
And while the plot twist is quite obvious, the resolution of it is quite different than you'd expect at first glance.

The plot twist got me scratching my head a bit as well. I figured we were trying to get rid of the evil scientist/dictator all the way through the game, only to find out I was the only one who knew this. Also, being the mute protagonist, I couldn't tell anyone else.

However, on the bright side, the game has three endings and all three are pretty cool, so all's forgiven on that front.

Other than that, Yahtzee doesn't give the game enough credit. It's by the numbers shooter with some fun gimmicks. The guns are satisfying and varried, enemies are introduced throughout the game at a steady pace, and the gimmicks/powers are also well paced. There's occasionally even a half-decent puzzle.

Basically, it won't blow your socks off, but as a rental or such it is well worth the money for a good Sci-Fi FPS. I had fun with it and I despise FPS games...

From day one Singularity sounded like Generic FPS 101. I mean, the only thing that stood out was the possibility of aging or deaging enemies, and that isn't exactly the kind of thing you can base a game solely around. I might still get it, once the price drops to around 20 dollars, but since I hardly ever play FPSs that I buy, it would probably sit in my closet for years until I sell it to a friend.

Bah, I was so enjoying the review until Yahtzee decided to go and reveal the Singularity plot twist after saying it's the same as the one in BioShock. Had to stop watching there.

Not to avoid spoilers for Singularity, but because I've just started playing BioShock for the first time.

Uh... Okay, spoilers.

The actual plot twist is you can't put everything back. If you do what the "good guy" says, he becomes supreme leader of the Russian dominated world. If you do what the bad guy says, nothing changes. But theres a third option. Which all in all, feels like the game's actual ending.

No matter what happens, the game erases 50 years of world history and replaces it with alterna-history. Which is actually kinda cool.

I hate to break it for the fanboys, but dead baby jokes are AMAZINGLY unfunny. The "allegory for the teenage years" quip was funny as hell, then dead baby joke comes and BAM! i suddenly don't even smile. Then again, maybe it was his plan all along.

Did Yahtzee just refer to BioShock's combat as "intense and unforgiving"? Does he realize that it was IMPOSSIBLE TO DIE in that game? (Don't answer that. I know he said that in his review, so I'm wondering why he's praising it now.)

On a side note, I will never buy a Slim Jim again for the rest of my life.

I'm sorry to say but I really think that Croshaw has no idea what he's talking about. Sure Singularity rips off of bioshock a lot, but in the best of ways. There is a time slow down skill, it's just not a god-hack ability like it is in most games.

It's not game of the year but it was certainly worth the buy.

Am I the only one who has gone from loving Yahtzee to hating him? He's such a prick nowadays. Half the games he's reviewed this year (and many last year) were great games that got every tiny crap thing they had in them brought to light while he pointed and yelled like some attention-starved brat.

Don't give me that, "Oh well he's a critic so of course he rips on games" bullshit. He doesn't do any good jokes/puns anymore (he didn't even try this time), he is extremely unfair to damn near every game he reviews, and is an overall ass.

Get singularity, or at least rent it for christ sakes, it's a proverbial gem in the shit that has come out so far this summer.

Also this games sales were horrendous... I recommend people to buy this game, the SP is great and the online is surprisingly fun.
Is it kind of like Red Faction: Guerilla? By that I mean, "Gee! This single player sure is fun! Wait a second. Is that-? Holy shit there's a multiplayer component! -GASP- AND IT'S ACTUALLY GOOD?!"

The plot reveals itself in the beginning when the statue of Stalin turns into the guy you saved. The end wasn't so much of a plot-twist as a Confirming-what-you-should-already-know moment. Overall, the game was fun but poorly written, i'd give it an 8.

Ah, generic plot based macguffin materials. Now if only they'd picked an element that idn't actually exist.

Pro tip for developers. If you're going to put a mysterious element into your games to psudo-science away the plot holes, try to make sure that element doesn't already exist. Element 99 does. It's called Einsteinium. While I'm sure the whole link between Einstein and time travel may sound good, we happen to know what this element is capable of, and time travel is not listed.

As to the time traveling/changing the past, I'd like to see Yahtzee's take on it in Cryostasis. Assuming Yahtzee has a PC that isn't shit... probably not...

I really enjoyed this game.

It was better than most FPS' out now and had a vaguely interesting story and gimmicks.

'tun the enemy into a baby, give him a grenade to suck on and throw him at his buddies to show you mean business' xD

Also this games sales were horrendous... I recommend people to buy this game, the SP is great and the online is surprisingly fun.
Is it kind of like Red Faction: Guerilla? By that I mean, "Gee! This single player sure is fun! Wait a second. Is that-? Holy shit there's a multiplayer component! -GASP- AND IT'S ACTUALLY GOOD?!"
Yes that's pretty much exactly how I felt.

"That was great!... There's an online? Man this is gonna suck... Holy shit balls this is awesome!"

I disagree, I think that while it *used* to be funny to watch him be an asshole, he *used* to give 9/10 games that he reviewed their props for what they did right, so now he's just being a prick making his loyal die-hard fans think that every game is shit.

Singularity is a damn good game, it's too short and yeah its rips off bioshock but it's still damn good. So was Red Dead, Borderlands, and Splinter Cell Convictions, but I don't complain about him ripping on them because at least in those he's funny and make his little fart jokes and what not, but he hasn't even been trying lately.

0/10 for this review (or critique or whatever the fuck you call it)

Nothing even remotely funny

Completely inaccurate on description of the story

Not mentioning any of the FUN aspects of the game, which is important to mention in a game like this where they far outweigh the negative aspects.

EDIT: It's also very clear that he plays games on easy, but in normal and hard mode, bullets stop being enough, so there goes that point. (your move fanboys)

I laughed very hard from this review. While I had never planned to buy/rent this game. You do point out that the plot was bad and game play was bad just as I figured. At less I saw this one a mile away.
He never actually said any of that, sure he made a couple jokes about the gameplay and said that the spoiler was obvious but he never said they were bad. Hell, even if he did, it doesn't mean that the game isn't good, all Yahtzee rips into games, he doesn't say they're brilliant, so using his reviews as a buyers guide is a pretty terrible idea.

Ok as plot twists go yeah it wasn't all that big of a deal. Until the part right after the plot twist. I still think Singularity is the best FPS to come out this year. Even though there was some elements that didn't make sense.

Yeah, yeah, good review etc, etc. But the point is did you enjoy the fucking game? I'm guessing not since you found nothing good to mention, apart from the fact it was better then Wolfenstein. Which was made by the same devloper. So I'm glad it achived that at least.

Rage moment over, all good points raised, and all correct, but at least the game stuck it's neck out. It could have gone the wolfenstein route, and do nothing but add a gimick, but it at least tried to make a story. to be frank, it did good for a game with nearly entirely no coverage, and is better then the half hearted shit released as mainstream games, with I suspect a much lower budget. At the end of the day, I liked it for what is was, and there is nothing anyone can do to affect my views.

It was far better than Wolfenstein, but it's true that it's not a block buster game, I had fun with it, a lot, but it falls short if you play it analysing the plot.

BTW, I've seen a few mentions to Metro 2033, will we see a review of it anytime soon?

3) I beat it in 1 1/2 days on normal; then starded it on hard and played for an hour and said "Oh bother I must of set it to normal by axident" restarted on hard again and it was still piss easy.

Bah, I was so enjoying the review until Yahtzee decided to go and reveal the Singularity plot twist after saying it's the same as the one in BioShock. Had to stop watching there.

Not to avoid spoilers for Singularity, but because I've just started playing BioShock for the first time.
He actually doesn't give away anything about bioshock.

And when is Yahtzee going to give Star Trek Online the verbal thrashing it's been asking for for months?

Why doesn't Yahtzee review fighting games like Super Street Fighter 4 or Tekken? I have never seen him review one.
He's said multiple times that he hates fighting games due to the ease of being beaten by someone mashing buttons.

OT: I played the first hour or so of the game and I saw what was happening with that doctor. But the game's "plot twist"? No. That is not a plot twist. That is something a 5 year old could figure out if they weren't paying attention.

However, this does not mean the game sucks. Just the plot is complete and utter shite. I'll definitely pick it up when it drops in price. Though I am getting very tired of the only hold two guns at the same time feature most FPS have been using since Halo, or whatever the first game to use that boring mechanic was.

Holy crap! You lost your innocence at flambards too? It's an evil place..

It's unfortunate, there really is a lack of innovation in the gaming industry these days, a lot of developers seem to think 'shiny graphics' or 'alternate control styles' count as innovative, when ultimately the core game play comes down to beating a dead horse repeatedly, so much so that you might as well be using a stick of liquorice as there's nothing left to damage.

And as has been said before, people who decide whether or not to buy games of Yahtzee's "review" probably shouldn't be gaming to start with.. His job is pretty much to make fun of faults in games, he occasionally has a few good words to say but that's ultimately his choice based on whether he enjoyed the game or not.. Your experiences may vary.

Well, this was a surprise. Him reviewing the game I mean, not him not liking it. I thought Singularity was pretty fun and I think he missed a lot of points that made it fun. But I agree with the laughability of the "plot-twist". Although honestly I enterpreted the "plot-twist" as something else.
The fact that you were the annomaly, not the saving. And the fact that you have to kill yourself in order to (maybe) set everything right again.
I'm gonna have to watch the video again though... I was sort of "dumbstruck" that he actually reviewed the game.
Actually, I think it goes further than that:

Even if you go back and kill yourself the time-line's still fucked, with the epilogue implying some kind of "good" Soviet rule of the world, with statues of that scientist, and you on a mission to the island but with Russian names like "Red Fleet" replacing the American ones. The video after the credits shows what the real anomaly was, it was Kathryn sent back in the ship wreckage who leaves that note in the book.

Incidentally I chose the ending where you kill both, I shot one guy and thought "hold on, my crosshairs are still red!" *BANG* It's actually my favourite ending of the three.

Anyway, there was "bullet-time", albeit with only one gun, the seeker. Firing a gun slow-mo around a corner into a soldier's groin never got old.

I love seeing at least three people getting suspended or banned whenever a new ZP comes out. You thought they`d learned be now...

"...or is the entire gaming industry blackmaile by the russian voice actors union?" <-- you know what? I find there is a distinct possibility that this is in fact true.

however, i share yahtzees criticism, but i must say: singularity was at least a little fun. it was ok halfway through, the other half repetitive and boring. the multiplayer is actually very entertaining for a few hours.
I must actually have fallen asleep for a second or so during exposition, because i never actually realised the russians had taken over the globe until near the end. the supposed twist on the other hand, was, as far as i remember, reveiled an hour before the actual supposed revelation at the end - but more as a casual mention on the passthrough.

Haha, thanks. First time poster, long time ZP watcher and lurker :). I still don't really fully get the Kathryn stuff, the time-line is so convoluted, but I think she must be the anomaly.

I think this is the first time I've actually played a game before Yahtzee's done a review of it.

Edit: meant long time ZP watcher and lurker, oops.

Since we're talking about plot twists, I recently completed BioShock for the first time, and there was a plot twist in the game that was very notable for its absence:

So after the big reveal that Atlas is really Fontaine, and you've been his genetically-engineered droid the whole time, you go after him for Revenge(TM). Well, about halfway through that part of the game, I suspected I was being set up for another plot twist -- that the guy you putted to death in Ryan's office was not really Ryan.

Fontaine clearly offended Ryan's objectivist "sensibilities," and would have liked nothing more than to see him removed from his masterwork, but his efforts to do so up to that point had failed. Also, the idea that a guy who could design and build a metropolis at the bottom of the Atlantic would be stupid enough to think that force of personality and personal conviction alone would stop you from sand-wedging his skull, shall we say, strained credibility. It occurred to me that, since bioethics had basically been tossed out the window (figuratively speaking; opening the windows is a bad idea in Rapture), Ryan would create a genetic clone of himself for the express purpose of being killed by whatever agency Fontaine had crufted together. Fontaine, thinking himself victorious, would then emerge in the open, where Ryan could then re-emerge and they could have a proper showdown.

And this is what I thought I was being set up for -- that Ryan would pop out of a closet somewhere and say, "Thanks ever so much for bringing this guy in the open," and you'd be placed in the position of having to choose between killing Fontaine, Ryan, or both.

But it didn't happen. It was just a garden-variety boss battle, with a marginal cinematic at the end.

Wow, I must have some pretty decent clairvoyance myself, just the other day I was playing Singularity at work and thinking "I think Yahtzee will rip on this game in his next review. It has all of his favorite points to rip on. It's too easy, it has gimmicks, and it blatantly rips off at least 2 other good games, this sounds too perfect for him to just go into, state the obvious, point out the lack of making people into babies, reanimating the dead, the number of staircases and chalkboards that are all imbued with Mysterious element Egg (and why every soldier can be aged.. why are they all imbued with this element?!)

Despite all that, I'm really enjoying the game because it has proper pacing and storytelling. In the interest of keeping this short, I'll sum it all up.

Enemies: Good, varied, damned annoying.
Weapons: Varies from poor to amazing, but I like the selection.
Areas: Dark and creepy in the present, Bright and colorful in the past, whatever.
Story: Doesn't work in many ways, but that's just nitpicking.
Support Characters: Aren't babysitting missions waiting to happen. They take care of themselves! (mostly.)
Favorite point not mentioned: The first person view mini cut scenes, they were done very well.
Gameplay: Smooth, interesting, and not sure if it wants to be action or horror. The amount of crap on the ground is clearly pointing to action, but some of the enemies are trying so hard to be scary. The puzzles may get you at first, but after that they are all copy paste.
Sounds/Music: No complaints.

EDIT: If I could add anything into the game, I would add in the chance to get off the linear storyline path (in a Disgaea kind of way) and "finish" the game at chapter one because you chose not to help someone. And having alternate paths to follow if you allowed certain events in the past to happen. Plotholes are always going to abound when some "world domination time changing event" takes place, so why not just get crazy with it?

You know, element 99 isn't some big mystery. It's called Einsteinium. It's a legit element on the periodic table. It's a synthetic metallic element that's highly radioactive. It's created by sticking Plutonium in a reactor for several years like cheese. Why did they pick that? If they wanted to be original and realistic, they should've chosen element 118 which, if created, would be the first man made completely stable element.

Russian voice actors guild! yes! hahaha

I've been commenting all the time about how there are way too many games lately where you fight Russians. I thought the cold war era of paranoia was over?
In addition to the games you pictured, MW2 and BFBC2 both pit you against Russians in fictional realities.

Enough with the damn Russians already! At least in STALKER and Metro, the main character is Russian as well, so it doesn't feel as blatantly xenophobic (plus those games were developed by Ukranians).

Was that guy shooting down Buddy Holly with a rocket launcher? haha

I had high hopes for this game from the initial teasers, but now that I've seen several reviews, it seems like my hopes were misplaced :(

Funny review, but I'm still getting this game. Turning people into dust sounds fun. I'll decide myself if it's better than Wolfenstein.

Very good review as per usual. Yahtzee's videos never fail to entertain me.

All the people getting put on probation never fail to entertain me either.
Yeah me too. I don't usually comment on his vids, but love to open the comment page anyway just to check what bullshit people said in an attempt to be the first in the list before they even had time to watch the vid :D

i passed it too it was atleast more than half decent maybe i would give it a score about 70 the bosses were epic and the textures of the enemies are done briliantly i even noticed some very small thing in the textures that i liked example the zeks(the blue guys) have this extra flesh that is on the part of the uniform they wore before beeing mutated well its not easy to explain .the first type of mutants (actually the first enemy you see in the game) have some very awesome directed events(with all the other monsters) the bosses were kickass espiacially this brute guy with some metal plate covering a couple bits of his heads and a giant flail plus atleast the weakness of the monster is not as easy as in other new games example batman arkham asylum you only need to throw a batarang at the brute bosses you meet a crapload of times in the game and he slams into the wall and ready for you punching the hell out of him or in the new wolfenstein luring the flesh like brute mutant to knock out columns of a building or gears of war where the berserker is blind and you need to lure him to knock out doors well in singularity you atleast get to effin kill the brute like boss the mechanics of this game were kinda poor maybe for alot of things the monsters that are blind and can only hear in this game are almost impossible to pass by them undetected if youre searching for something usefull so the most efficient way to deal with them is a shotgun to the face because theyre eassier to kill then the other mutants in the game so theres no point of sneaking past them or the way enemies know that youre behind a wall when they never even saw you or when you begin a map infront of some enemies standing with theyre backs turned to you and even the guys walking and looking at you that are nearby dont see you so some enemies are completely retarded and some can see through walls nice balance plus theres really not much stuff to age and renew in this game with the tmd well some little things in this game are mastered and others are just plain crap probably that's why this game didnt get much recognition. also there's no explanation how this did not become a completely overrated piece of crap that halo is i mean halo is less than decent saying the word halo is making me vomit because its too overrated and its not even fun or have good gameplay mechanics but every(almost) rewiever is sucking halo's big stiffy goddamnit

You've probably already heard this, but in his Soul Calibur review he said that he doesn't "get" fighting games. So yeah, that's the reason right there.

If I could travel through time I would do three things:

1) I'd make sure that evil director Richard Kelly was never born.
2) I'd build anti-aircraft guns on the roof of the World Trade Center.
3) Destroy Lavos.

For some reason, Yahtzee completely fails to mention that the game is ludicrously fun. The weapons and shooting mechanics are excellent, great weapons and great enemies (both humans and monsters). It's the best shooter I've played this year. And the gameplay mechanics, weapons, enemies, puzzles etc change every few minutes, it's got constant crazy variety, just like the Half-Life games.

The game does get a bit too easy if you fully upgrade assault rifle damage or your Deadlock time freezing power. But other than that flaw, it was a great old-skool shooter, with none of the problems of Wolfenstein. You know that Black Mesa mod that is supposed to be a modern remake of Half-Life 1? Singularity felt like what Half-Life 1 would be like if made with modern technology and set in Russia rather than the US, and about rifts in time rather than a rift to another universe. Not terribly original, but great in terms of setting and gameplay.

As for the "plot twist", it was not that saving Demechev changed history. Yes there's a brief flashback moment where it shows you saving the guy and history changing, but that's just to add emphasis to something. There are several real plot twists... which I wont' reveal in case anyone does get this game.

As a whole, the story was pretty decent. A hell of a lot beter than a lot of other time travel games and movies and TV shows.

Also, the thing where de-aging people turns them into mutants? Yahtzee thinks this makes no sense, and reckons it should turn them into babies. Think about it... when you age an enemy, you don't simply speed up time, you don't see the guy going about the next 50 years of normal day-to-day life, instead instead all the matter just gets incredibly old, and the person screams in horror as their flesh ages and disintegrates and their skeleton collapses to the floor. A diagram on a chalkboard in the game describes it as "increase in entropic radiation", entropy being the law of the universe that means things tend to get old and fall apart. So if you reverse the process, you are making their flesh incredibly young... like an embyo or fetus. Due to conservation of mass, they don't shrink into little babies, instead you get a man-sized embyonic thing, a blind creature with no skin. The original concept art on the Raven developer blog showed the thing being in a placental sac. http://www.ravensoft.com/blog/images/2010-06-07-ryanbutts/char_soldier_tmdstates.jpg I think they dropped that because they didn't want to emphasise the whole embyo thing, in case it was controversial and people complained or something.

You know, element 99 isn't some big mystery. It's called Einsteinium. It's a legit element on the periodic table. It's a synthetic metallic element that's highly radioactive. It's created by sticking Plutonium in a reactor for several years like cheese. Why did they pick that? If they wanted to be original and realistic, they should've chosen element 118 which, if created, would be the first man made completely stable element.
Because the Russians discovered E99 and experimented with it in 1940s and 50s, before the discovery of Einsteinium. It was the 99th element to be discovered, so they called it E99. And since things went bad and everything was covered up, the rest of the world never found out about it, so later the "real" 99th element Einsteinium was discovered.

What I also thought was cool was that the term Black Hole is never used in the game, even though a Singularity is the term for the core of a black hole. Which makes sense because the term wasn't invented until 1967, and in the game's story the Russians made an artificial one in the 1950s.

I know that this will have been said hundreds of times but I had work so I haven't got around to watching the video until now.

Someone showed a trailer for Singularity about a week before it was released, claiming it looked awesome and asking why no one was excited for it. In that thread I dismissed it immediately saying it looked like a mashup of Timeshift and Half Life with all the emotion and good characterisation sucked out.

Hey look, I finally get to say I told you so.

Seriously, I'm actually more comfortable with remakes and sequels than I am with shamefaced copying of better games to try and make the same amount of money. At least with remakes and sequels it's their own intellectual property they're milking for more cash.

Let me preface this by saying Yahtzee is the only reviewer I actually heed the advice of, seeing as how his taste and mine seem pretty similar.

I have a piece of constructive criticism for Mr. Croshaw:

Please stop using allusions to history or politics. It's obvious by your comments that you're not really interested in these subjects and haven't studied them at any length...so whenever you use them in metaphors or what have you, they either fall completely flat or are of the eye-roll-causing overheard-conversation-in-Starbucks variety.

For me at least they take your reviews from entertaining to groan-inducing.

P.S. I hate Jason Statham.

In the game. When the Russians discovered E99 in that continuity. Einstenium hadn't been discovered. So in that time line E99 would have been the 99th element to be discovered.

Well I count four people who got the Beatles reference.
For those who missed the joke, Blackburn Lancashire is mentioned in the Beatles song, A day in the Life.
"I read the news today oh Boy.
Four thousand holes in blackburn lancashire.
Although the holes were rather small,
they had to count them all."

In conclusion Yahtzee said, as many plot holes as there are holes in balckburn lancashire.
As in 4000. Funny Joke. I applaud you.

Good episode though.

HA! As if he mentioned Blackburn, I only live 25 minutes away from there.

I kind of had a feeling this would be one of those games that comes out in an obscure manner, without being any good. It's a shame, really, it sounds like they could've done a lot with the idea, but managed to hash it up quite nicely.

That after-credit comment is both disturbing and intriguing.

Also, if you're going to center your game around a magical unobtanium element, at least name it creatively. Element 99 is real and sorely lacks time-traveling proprieties [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Element_99] despite its cool name.

Inferior to Half Life and BioShock? Yes. Inferior to Time Shift? Nooooo! No, no, no. At least with Singularity the plot and enemies were mixed up. Time Shift, while similar used it's gimmick in set pieces more than general combat.

I may check this game out when it's reduced, since it comes off as one of Raven's better games in recent years.

Well, that was discovered in '52, And E99 was found around the same time, probably earlier. And since the Russians conquered after discovery of this element, then... ya.

Also, to everyone who thinks this game sucks badly just because of this review, remember, the Escapist itself gave this game a pretty good review http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/editorials/reviews/7844-Review-Singularity. I don't mean to hate on Croshaw, in fact hes my favorite reason to come back, but it is his job to point out the bad things.

Also, I don't remember that being the plot twist. I swear it was the other thing that happens when it shows the flashbacks at the end (for those who beat the game), seeing how it mentions beforehand that hes the big enemy. But play the game yourself to decide.

And enemies that would make hellghan itch in comparison. I would give this game four pulsating yellow shoot me thumbs up if it had a specific outlook on time travel not Demikhov parts from other half assed shooters before it.

Honestly, I thought that this looked somewhat interesting through gameplay videos. But now that I've finished Red Dead Redemption (finally) and I'm now just sifting through my other games before I probably buy Skate 3 at its current sale price, this doesn't look so appealing to me. Maybe it's the fact that I still haven't finished Bioshock 2, but that twist seemed incredibly dumb and is a complete dealbreaker for me.

Regarding the video, I'm surprised and pleased that a reference to my favorite song (A Day in the Life) could be used to successfully represent plot holes. Congrats to you for that.

In fiction there's always some deus ex machina crap goin on to explain it, but in theoretical real life it's logically impossible.

Yatzee probably wont read this but I thought i should clarify something.

There are three endings. One where you join the world leader dude and lead his army to take over the last parts that resist the world government, one where the good doctor turns into a douche, and one where you kill both and use the TMD to start taking over the world.

Some times it's difficult for FPS' to figure out what they're not, and that is a great way to tell a story, a new game-play mechanic or challenging (if you're like me and have played enough FPS' that you have more twitch fiber than wank muscle and can gleefully shoot a butterfly 14 miles away with your left hand as if you're the main character from Wanted).

In reply to Mik Hardcore.

true. Whatever "accident" you do in the past would have already happened to shape what happened in the present so that you could go back into the past and do it again.

Its what you said but i just wanted to clarify for the less... umm... smart?

Just wanted to say that time travel movies have no merit to the whole changing the past thing.

BTW the futurama episode where fry goes back to the 50's and becomes his own grandfather is possible because fry does the exact thing i just said up top.

Did Yahtzee just refer to BioShock's combat as "intense and unforgiving"? Does he realize that it was IMPOSSIBLE TO DIE in that game? (Don't answer that. I know he said that in his review, so I'm wondering why he's praising it now.)

On a side note, I will never buy a Slim Jim again for the rest of my life.
Probably because despite you not being able to die, the combat itself was pretty damn hard and made you search for every single bullet and drop of Eve. Until you start using melee tonics, that is, and kill everything with your wrench.

What is the chance of Yahtzee reviewing Starcraft 2?

Except that wasn't the real plot twist. There were several real plot twists during that bit of the game, and the flashback of you saving the scientist was just one of several flashbacks. And if you do the "good" ending you get yet another plot twist.

Yes, it was silly that they showed a flashback of you saving Demechev, I guess that was for stupid people that forgot the start of the game.

But then the real plot twist is that there is evidence you have already tried and failed to get rid of the Singularity, and there is evidence that you've already tried and failed to stop yourself from saving Demechev. That's the weirdness of time travel... there is 50 year old evidence of the fact that you are planning to travel back in time. And it appears that it is not going to go well.

But... because you have seen this evidence, because you know that what you are planning is doomed, you can actually change the plan, there's a chance it could work. You've already changed history several times, things are not fixed. If you screw up you'll create a time loop where doom yourself to repeat your previous mistake, but you've learnt from the previous mistake then perhaps you can get it right this time.

It's like quantum theory and Shrodinger's Cat... the cat in the box is both alive and dead until you've looked in the box. In Singularity you've both failed and succeeded to stop Demechev until you attempt to do it. And what happens when you actually do attempt this is a pretty interesting plot twist.

So yeah, Yahtzee was unfair on the game fo saying he is giving away the plot twist and then saying it has no real plot twist. It actually has several. Just because there's a flashback sequence and a scientist realising something, that doesn't mean that's supposed to be the plot twist.

Yahtzee does have clairvoyant abilities. This is a quote from his site archives, the date is June 11th, 2003: "...or the stock market crashing like passenger planes into oversized office buildings, I confidently predict our comfortable oblivious lives will have some harsh reality drummed into them at some point in the next couple of decades."

And it seems this bear-costumed person at the amusement park made some negative impact on him - he mentions that event couple of times, but doesn't specify any details.

I'm sorry, but "Upgrades were necessary in bioshock because the combat was harsh and unforgiving"? That's the biggest bullshit I've ever heard, yahtzee. Have you got short term memory disorder? Maybe you're thinking of system shock- bioshock was the game where it was literally impossible to die. It was guilty of why-do-I-need-this-upgradeitis more than Singularity.

this is happening all over escapist people getting suspended put on probation or even banned for the stupidest reasons something needs to be done about this
They posted as soon as hte video was out. They didn't even watch it first. Their comments add nothing to this thread or the video. Essentailly, TROLLS.

I'm still trying to figure out what Yahtzee meant by, more holes than Blackburn. I'm just going to awesome it was some sort of insult, in which case: bravo Yahtzee.!

Why would you not buy a game reviewed by Yahtzee? Do you realise you'd end up playing portal over and over and over again? He's giving us a humerous view on the flaws of each and every game. No game is perfect, doesn't mean they are crap either.

If i was to follow the way of the Australian-British fuhrer regarding all games, i'd miss out on gems like Demon's Souls, Borderlands and a whole lotta others. It's almost like following an american president's groundless statements about the existance of so called WMD in an oilfilled country, without asking questions.

OT: I look forward to playing this game, and was going to buy it if not for the European release of Demon's Souls. Although it's even further postponed cause of my pc blowing up, both PS3s having their laser stop working and dear old Xbox getting 3 reds(after a total of 10 hour use since purchase).

Good review. Yahtzee has mentioned this whole alternative history thing before and i think the games industry should heed his advice.

Excellent, I wish I could go back in time to watch it again. Oh wait, I can! *presses replay button*. Wow, the past is amazing.

Oddly enough I actually wrote this in the past but you're now reading it in the future. Wooooo scary stuff etc..

On the original topic: I've already said what I thought of the game in the review, which is why I'm not making much of an effort to make any real comment about it.

I was also very disappointed by the plot twist at the end, however if you go for the good ending, there is a better secondary twist there (aside from the obvious statue). Pay especially attention to the differences in the dialog.

But I agree, the story has more plot holes than emmental cheese.

Rather disappointing, because I had to end it half way through, because I HATE SPOILERS.
It's not really a spoiler as it's established within the first 5 minutes of the game. Plus Yatzhee didn't mention the whole of the twist anyway, there is still a small detail.

And anyway, it's not at all the type of game you play for the story, don't worry.

Tis sad that the studio that is capable of creating such nice games like Hexen, Jedi Academy and X-Men Origins: Wolverine usually create some third leg poop. Sad.

Thanks for the spoiler warning. Even though it seems shitty, I hate being spoilered.

A note? Seriously?

It's a Beatles reference. A brilliant one at that.

More holes than Blackburn, Lancashire... good one. I'm not even a big fan of that album (it's sooooooo overrated, give me Pet Sounds over it any day), but that cracked me up.

If you think the note is bad, you're lucky you didn't have the "plot twist
