An incredibly addictive game
"Space, the final fronti-OH MY GOD MY SHIP IS ON FIRE !" This pretty much sums up my experience with FTL. I find it difficult to describe what I exactly like in this game. The difficulty is not very well designed and sometimes you'll die for no good reason other that "You weren't lucky enough", the randomization becomes way too apparent after a while and the combat system gets really repetitive as well. So why do I like FLT so much ? Well, let's just say it took me 20 hours of playing this rogue-like to realize all that... and it is still not hindering my ability to enjoy the game a lot. Because you want to beat the game. You want to overcome the odds. You want you crew to stay alive as long as possible. Plus the game isn't bad at all ! I mean, the mechanics are solid, the game looks great and the soundtrack is so good. My point is: FTL is flawed, but by the time you realize it is, you will have played so much of it already that it won't even matter.
