Product Description

Platform: Mac Download | Edition: Steam

This is a Steam Game Code, and requires Steam to play.

In FTL you experience the atmosphere of running a spaceship trying to save the galaxy. It's a dangerous mission, with every encounter presenting a unique challenge with multiple solutions. What will you do if a heavy missile barrage shuts down your shields? Reroute all power to the engines in an attempt to escape, power up additional weapons to blow your enemy out of the sky, or take the fight to them with a boarding party? This "spaceship simulation roguelike-like" allows you to take your ship and crew on an adventure through a randomly generated galaxy filled with glory and bitter defeat.

I'm not sure why there are separate reviews of the game, and the Steam version for PC and Mac, since they are all essentially the same thing with no difference. Needless to say if you hate Steam, don't get this version.

[Good]

This is a Good simulation of being a spaceship captain. I am not aware of another recent game in this category that is this good.

Variety: There are a lot of choices in both ships, crew, and even ship upgrades. There are also a lot of variety in terms of missions and how you finish them (i.e. destroy the ship, board the ship and kill everyone on it, etc...). The only catch is that you have to unlock them, which is cool since it forces you to get familiar with the ships.

Replayability: Even if you beat the game, this game is still very replayable. Chances are you'll be dying and losing way more often than beating the game. The number of ship unlocks helps quite a bit as well.

[Bad]

Graphics: They are passable, but no where close to awesome. This is fine since the gameplay is more than good to overcome it.

Turn Limit: I really don't like that there's a race against time and you can't take your sweet time to explore things. This is the only major thing that I don't like about the game. In their defense I'm not sure there's a way to make it not limited in turns and not too easy that it's no longer fun.

[Verdict]

If you like RTS's and sci-fi, this is a really good, inexpensive game to get. There's nothing to lose and there's lots of fun and time to waste with it.

In a market that is dominated by huge, un-original shooters such as Call of Duty, it is often hard to find a game that breaks into new grounds. FTL does just that. I have played it for over 2 hours and have not had a single repetitive moment. The game is small and lacks cutting edge animation, but it does offer a fun break from the FPS genre.

Hours of fun and unique gameplay for a low price. The best 'indie' game I have ever played. Great purchase.

Incredibly engaging and rewarding. I've got over 90 hours clocked on FTL and still love it. Buy it at once.

Lots of fun to play. Challenging but keeps you interested. I find myself playing it more and more when I should be dong other things.
