Summary: First time playing FTL was with this Advanced Edition, so this isn't a review of what the Advanced Edition adds to the base game, but what the whole package provides. Gameplay is a mashup of roguelikes and RTS, with the ability to pause in order to make more strategic decisions when necessary.
Summary: Having fun with this game, however I believe it's more of a $5 game, rather than the $10 I paid - of course if they would add a "Save Game" button or go let you restart at your last completed level I would definitely give it 4 stars.
Summary: There is no way a game that appears as simple as FTL should have so many layers of complexity, but it really is an example of great game design. In its original form it was beautifully balanced and compelling, and with the new Advanced Edition (free to existing users) it opens out the formula even...
Summary: Its a fun game if you like a challenge and don't mind starting over, all of the time. I have never played a management game quite like it and that makes it unique but at times it almost seems impossible to get the hang of it. Fun to play but can be very frustrating at times.
