Summary: This is an excellent deceptively simple game that is in essence a decision making and consequence engine. It plays well, is very challenging, and combines some old school video game notions with interesting mission based game play. I like it a lot! The game revolves around delivering a message to the Federation fleet by transiting a series of sectors each of which have a number of star systems. The game presents the player with a variety of choices.
Summary: FTL can be considered a game of many genre's, but I prefer to think of it as game of chance. I will get into what I mean by this later, but needless to say if you HATE games that take some of the control on winning or losing from you, don't purchase this game. A quick description of the game would be: You are a ship trying to go from one end of the galaxy to the other to deliever a report on a Genocidal enemy fleet.
Summary: Pros: Puts you in the position of being a starship captain. The game is easy to learn. Game mechanic is simple yet provides enough to create rich gameplay. Graphics are also simple and just enough to communicate what's necessary. You make moral decisions in the game. E.g. You wonder whether you're better off ignoring a distress signal or take the risk of it being an ambush. You only get 1 ship, and if you die along the way the entire game is over.
Summary: This game is AMAZING!!!!!!!! Me and my friends play it every time we hang out :)!!!!! With each randomized galaxy, you never have the same thing happen twice. The final boss is really hard, but the game is still super incredible!!!!!!!!! BTW you wasted time in reading this review......BUY IT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!
Summary: Addictive for sure, this game excels at design and balance. Big studio games could learn a lot from these guys. Also, for fellow old timers, who remembers Accolade's Psi-5 Trading Company? This is the spiritual successor. Action starship captaining at its best.
DON'T BUY UNTILL YOU READ THIS REVIEW...then its up to you

Summary: This is the worst purchase I have ever made on Amazon. You are not told before purchase that an account with "Steam" is required. The new account procedure for "Steam" is designed to fail, with numerous problems in the software and a very difficult registration form. The idiot that designed their verification box with gray symbols on a gray background must have had his head where the sun doesn't shine.
Summary: FTL is a remarkable, terrific and unforgiving game. I would classify it as a space, dungeon-crawling, a** kicking strategy game that always presents a new challenge to overcome. While it may be difficult and ruthless, the feeling of achievement one feels upon completion is unmatched by any other. I believe everyone should own this game and understand tbe horrible pain of losing a crewmember to a Mantis attack.
Summary: The story line is vivid and creative, I've never gotten bored reading the text. I feel invested in the choices I make, and the outcomes of conversations are often changed by how you react, what crew you bring with you, and very often what pieces of equipment you've found or purchased along the way. Plenty of ways to play the game, too.
