How long is this game again? Game is ok so far, nothing amazing. They go for the Bioshock vibe to start with then settle for something a bit less profound. At this stage not sure if its better or worse than Wolfenstein (which I thought was pretty mediocre). At least there isn't any boring backtracking.

Texture issue is starting to get worse for me as the game goes along, now even characters are blurred out.

Considering how easy the fix is you would think they would have published the patch last week.

I'll be playing this on the PS3 tonight since I was able to score a copy for $10.

I used the hex patcher found on the web for the textures and got AA working using nHancer. If I could figure out a way to disable the crosshair and change the FOV it be near perfect for me. Unfortunately, there is nothing for either one of those in the registry.

Finished it, overall pretty mediocre. Combat was fairly good toward the end. I tended to stick with the auto cannon which was fun to use and the time sphere thing. I guess the pacing was good enough to keep me going. I took breaks only when the textures were just getting completely blurry.

Still can't shake the overall generic feeling, invisible walls and doors closing behind you. Simple simple puzzles. 95% of the puzzles revolved around using the same type of box. AI was alright I guess although the NPCs not looking at me during cutscenes was annoying. Boss battles were fairly standard affairs with weakspots and in same cases it told you exactly what to do.

Couple of easy sniper segments where its just headshot after headshot. Similar feeling toward Wolfenstein I guess, although singularity started with good potential - felt like Bioshock with a Russian flavour. Not sure if the end reveal was meant to be a surprise?

Is anybody playing the multiplayer. In any case as a shooter fan it was decent enough for a purchase. Just not quite up there with the better shooters.

If you didn't like Wolfenstein much, and don't like very traditional feeling shooters, one wonders why you bought it in the first place.

Well I'm loving this game. It can be as much of a visual treat as bioshock, and the action and effects are quite badass. The character animations are about the best I've seen, right there with Metro.

I didn't have the texture fix applied yet for these shots but they seem to be ok.

I need a new singleplayer shooter after Metro. Either this or wolfenstein, but I'd rather not pay full price. 20-30 dollars.
