FTL: Faster Than Light

IGN
25 April 2014
  • Conclusion: FTL: Advanced Edition is an incredibly replayable game, and each run gives me something memorable and rewarding – even the ones that end with my entire crew dead. The excellent iPad version has just become my go-to mobile game, since it includes all of the tense decision-making and unpredictability...
  • Pros: Unpredictable, Endlessly replayable, Great combat, Fun story decisions

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: The HMS Tribble was on fire. Every single room from the engine room to my recently purchased drone control room was being consumed one tiny square at a time. The valiant Captain Jack Jack was frantically attempting to regain control of the helm, while the other two surviving crew members -- the...

(PC Review) FTL: Faster Than Light

The Entertainment Depot
31 January 2013
  • Summary: FTL: Faster Than Light is far, far greater than the sum of its deceptively simple screenshots. What initially seems like a playground for basic ship-to-ship combat very quickly reveals itself to be a puzzle box of sorts, something which offers astounding levels of depth and complexity through a...

FTL: Faster Than Light (PC)

ccgr.org
26 November 2012
  • Excerpt: FTL: Faster Than Light makes you the captain of your own starship (ala Star Trek), with a unique focus on simulation rather than traditional first-person combat.
  • Pros: Addictive; extremely high replay value; encourages strategic thought and risk management; advanced simulation makes you feel like a starship captain
  • Cons: Steep learning curve; permanent-death mechanic may be frustrating for some

  • Summary: 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.

Faster Than Light For Linux Review

Softpedia
17 October 2012
  • Conclusion: Faster Than Light is one of those games that end up installed on your computer of laptop for many years. We all have a few games that we can’t do without. Whenever I find some spare time, I know what I’m going to do. All power to the engines! Engage!
  • Pros: I’ve played hundreds of games in my life, but I can’t remember anything quite like this one. The only game that reminds me of FTL is The Binding of Issac, another procedurally generated world. There is simply no substitute for commanding a starship. It makes players feel like Jean Luke Picard or ...
  • Cons: I understand why the game has to rely heavily on randomization, but a few fixed decisions at the start of every session could have driven players to a more constant experience. The differences between two gaming sessions are huge, most of the time. I could manage going through five clusters at on...
