FTL: Faster Than Light

 

There are two different kinds of space stories. On the one hand there is Star Trek and Star Wars. In these stories space is a big, exciting place where the hero can find his destiny and alien races are colorful and interesting. Zooming around space is...

Everyone can pick it up and play but only the truly dedicated will stick with it until the end. Get ready to kill all your crew members. Again.

FTL: Faster Than Light is a roguelike(-like) that puts you in command of your own ship and crew on a desperate mission to save the Federation – as long as you can survive countless hostile ships, assorted space adventures, and the capricious randomness...

Review: FTL: Faster than Light for Windows, Mac, Linux - GamerTell

 

Simple, yet detailed art. Tons of different scenarios. Lots of ships and ship layouts. Wide assortment of weapons. Plenty of different races. No two games play the same. Quite challenging, requiring you to always think before acting. Can be beaten in a...

Ridiculously difficult, even on the Easy difficulty. No permanent save files, only temporary quick saves

Thrilling combat and strategic depth make indie space sim Faster Than Light a hit.

Strategically rewarding gameplay makes you feel like a starship captain ; Fast-paced campaign loaded with tense combat ; Many hours of enjoyable spacefaring adventure for just $10

Lacking in encounter variety

Ship development is incredibly important, because combat is a constant threat. You can drop into a system and find friendly traders selling equipment, helpful scientists, or even just a relaxing empty vacuum, but you're more likely to run into a rebel...

FTL FTW -- it's a Roguelike, but not as we know it.

Superb risk/reward balance; great random generator; satisfying learning curve

Dull universe; bland combat music; randomization can lead to pain

A Roguelike with the same addictive charm as The Binding Of Isaac, but that you can play in polite company? Sold! Though you may want to fire up Spotify during fights. In space, no one can hear you scream, but a little orchestral oomph never hurts. Are...

FTL: Faster Than Light review

 

All the frantic space action of Star Trek with none of the moralising, romances, dodgy acting or polystyrene boulders.

FTL has come out nowhere to become one of 2012's most essential games. It takes old and slightly stuffy concepts, then transforms them into something high-speed, immediate, entirely fresh and filled with near-masochistic thrills.

FTL: Faster Than Light

 

Even on easy mode, FTL is another capital-D Difficult game and its random nature means even the most careful of explorers might find themselves unexpectedly asphyxiated.

Well balanced ship management ; Atmospheric mood ; Gripping space combat

Randomised elements can seem unfair
