TechSpot: Singularity GPU & CPU performance explored

New and exquisite looking computer games are always something that we are on the lookout for, so that we can provide you with an in-depth hardware performance review. Singularity is a new first person shooter that managed to fly well under our radar even though it was developed by veteran Raven Software and published by Activision.

In fact it wasn't until a fellow TechSpot staff member pointed out Singularity as a game of interest last week that I even knew of its existence. Although Singularity is based on the Unreal Engine 3 - like a few dozen or more games released over the past few years - we were still keen to check out how current hardware handles it.

Singularity is getting released just today for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 platforms, generating a lot of buzz as of late for its supposedly exciting single player campaign (we haven't managed to play the game in full just yet) and the gameplay paradigm that it presents, giving you a "Time Manipulation Device" to play with and use as a weapon.

def one of those games i am gonna try out and not end up paying full price for. most games like this are incredibly linear and unless you manipulate time the way you were intended to, you won't solve any puzzles or kill the big boss.

I checked this out a few weeks ago, it doesn't seem like anything special, but seems perfectly suited to be an excellent game with a budget price - i.e. something like Prey. I'd think this game would be quite popular if it was say £10 cheaper than the usual affairs.

"Time Manipulation Device" reminds me so much of Braid ... that was a nice game.

Strangely it reminds me of Blinx which was a terrible game XD

Boring game with poor graphics that gives you motion sickness.

looked at some videos and screenshoots, and yea, i have to agree, they seem to have done an amazing job at making a game on the unreal 3 engine look bad, must be a first

I thought the first was Unreal Tournament 3, with its ridiculous visual effects getting in the way?
