Really Fun, nothing to bad

This game is really fun, BLOOD- the envirement in this game is usually bloody and dead corpses are everywhere.LANGUAGE- cursing is used in only the very beginning of the game when your with another military soldier who has a bit of potty mouth. he says F about once S about 2 and D about 3. Violence- You shoot and kill people, and you get a device that can age people instantly and they turn to skeleton

Our review:
Parents say (5):
Kids say (8):

A better than average sci-fi shooter, Singularity offers players novel weapons and tools as well as an intriguing, time-bending tale. The ability to progress or regress a particular object in age makes for some interesting game scenarios. We can un-collapse fallen tunnels to clear a path and restore decrepit boxes to make the ammunition and supplies they hold usable. Conversely, players can age a safe to make its door fall apart, or make their enemies grow old and die in seconds.

It's just too bad that it takes more than two hours of pretty standard first-person-shooting slogging to get to the innovative stuff. Also, the graphics feel as old as some of the objects players age in the game. The blurry textures and rough-hewn character models might have seemed modern at the start of this generation, but they're definitely dated now. Still, it doesn't detract much from the overall experience. There's plenty of entertainment here for grownups who enjoy gory gun games; just keep in mind this brand of fun isn't family-friendly.

Online interaction: Players can go up against one another online. Open voice chat is supported, which means potential exists for players to share personal information and encounter inappropriate language and topics of conversation while playing multiplayer games. Common Sense Media does not recommend open online play for children under 12 years of age.
