    Not very (your typical FPS). It doesn't keep track of playtime but I'd guestimate it is under 10 hours but not sure by how much. Mind you, I also played very slow like because I hate games that attempt to scare me shitless. XD

    That type of weaponry was actually first seen (by me at least) in Clive Barker's Jericho.

    The key to getting past this bit is to charge up the time delay weapon whilst your already inside one of the orbs.

    Guys I could use some help! Don't read below if your afraid of spoilers.


    The part where you get the gas mask and you have to hit this button to activate a door that goes up but then falls right back down. Its obvious that I need to do that sphere thing to slow it down, problem is the door keeps falling down anyways.

    If someone could tell me exactly how they did that. I've tried three different ways to try and make it there before it falls but I'm always to late.

    heres what you do:

    Press the button to open the door. Take a step backwards and fire a time delay orb through the window at the light just above the door. This will then give you enough time to run round before the door closes.

    I did it a little differently (probably the harder route because the Window is not broken):
    1. Shoot the orb to the left of the door that is currently closed.
    2. Age the orb so it collapses.
    3. Run and hit the button.
    4. When the door reaches the top, Age the orb again (through the window) so it expands, locking the door in place.
    5. Run like a bat out of hell under the door before the orb vanishes.

    Hmm I didn't know I could age the orb, It would always just collapse when I hit Q and yeah the window isn't broken for me either.This spoiler thing is really good lol

    Thanks guys I'll try this and see what happens after work today.

    My opinion: So sad that raven soft don´t use the ID tech 4 engine for it´s games, and uses the unreal one instead for this one, textures looks so crappy and no matter how much AF you apply still looks the same. Game concept is fine but there´s too much post-apocaliptic games this days, and all starts looking the same (chernobyl everywhere) animations sometimes are really dumb and there´s too little settings to change on the options menu. in conclusion, just give it a try but don´t expect too much on this one

    Well it does seem better suited for Consoles than on PC and Textures sometimes never load... but perhaps they will patch it up.

    you´re right, this is a console game, and hope there´s a patch for those textures, i see that all games based on unreal engine have the slow, loading texture problem... turok ,gears, wolverine, etc... i hate unreal engine and starts looking so old. the only one that is improved is the 3.1 i guess? the one used for splinter cell conviction and the incoming medal of honor.. or am i wrong?

    I agree with this. There were many points in the game where the level of detail failed. Standing like 5 feet from a chaulk board and you walk towards it, you can see it go from unreadable to readable. Sometimes it completely failed and it was unreadable no matter the distance. This problem seemed to only appear in some areas of the game. It didn't happen everywhere. Obviously a bug.


    Conviction uses a modified Unreal 2.5 engine. Basically, all Splinter Cell games use essentially the same engine.

    in my opinion: if you like fallout/stalker/wolfenstein style games, go for it, it´s a good try, if you seek for awesome graphics, good story and other stuff, use your money on other game.

    Lol I guess thats why I liked this game so much (among other things) I love fallout Stalker and Wolfenstein. Although I've only Played Fallout 3 and the latest wolfenstein game.

    Yeah I'd wait for a deal. Game is great but not OMG get this now great. Depends on what they sell it for but I'd defiantly get on another Steam Summer Sale.

    What is the best place to purchase? I thought I read earlier it's on Steam, is it out on the B&M shelves or eTailers?

    Thanks a lot! I got through it and finished the game. I have to say that was the most fun linear game I have played in a very long time.

    About the ending,
    I played both endings but I think they should have had a third option.. instead of you killing yourself while you were carrying the dictator out of the fire, you should have been able to kill him, thus having the same outcome and you wouldn't have to die.

    I usually play sandbox games because I got disillusioned with the shortness of most linear games. For instance Deus Ex was a large game and only fit on a 600 MB CD. I just don't understand why if Deus Ex could do that, game devs have to make their games so short. Still I hope there is a Singularity 2. the gameplay makes up for the short game.

    There are three endings:
    1) Kill the doctor and the scientist.
    2) Kill the dictator, kill yourself.
    3) Kill the scientist, let the dictator finish talking.


    It was made back in 2000. It had small textures and a limited triangle count on models. By comparison, GTA IV has over 7 GiB of just textures.
