Challenging, seldom frustrating.

It wasn't really the quick looks or the lets plays that made me interested in FTL because when you watch it with untrained eyes it is really quite stale, impressive with all of its micromanagement and the administrative look of it sure, but it's just not very visual.

That said, I am so glad that the good things I heard about it convinced me to buy it(It helped that it was cheap and would work fine on my potpal) because this baby is the Sci-Fi'est Sci-Fi that ever Sci-Fi'ed. And I love my Sci-Fi. The delegation of crew, the management of the limited powersupply and the random elements that makes the short but highly repeatable journey feel alive make for an adrenaline filled ride.

And it's tough, very tough. I highly doubt that I'll ever play on normal difficulty again.

    Video Review - FTL: Advanced Edition 0

    FTL is a sci-fi themed Rogue-like which tasks the player with traversing randomized sectors of space in mission to defeat an enemy flagship. In the grand tradition of rogue-likes, this game can be punishing, with players often ending a run with nothing to show for it. While the main objective in the game is to beat the boss, a lot of the fun comes from unlocking new ships and layouts. The Advanced Edition makes this easier by offering more ways to get these unlocks. For more, check out the Video...
