Nonserious review: OH GOD EVERYTHING IS BURNING PLEASE HELP ME OH GOD THE OXYGEN IS GONE WAIT DON'T BLOW US UP PLE- *explosions form a 9/10*
Serious review = the rest of this
FTL is a space ship game in which you are the captain of a space ship trying to save the galaxy (universe?) from the Rebels, as you are playing the Federation. It is an extremely brutal game, which is good, because while excessive brutality is bad, I'd rather have that then have excessive hand-holding. As a review would do, pros and cons and neutrals will come next.
Extreme difficulty, but not unfair difficulty. This game is very, very, VERY hard to actually win, in fact, in 26 hours, I have only won ONE TIME. Most of the times you lose, it is because you forgot to do something essential, such as repair the doors, put out the fire in the oxygen room before letting out all of the oxygen to put out the other fires, putting out fires, upgrading, etcetera
A plethora (wow, who uses that word anymore?) of weapons. You got good weapons, bad weapons, pew pew weapons, BWEEE weapons, PCHEW weapons, VWABABA weapons, and more (in order, good weapons, bad weapons, laser weapons, beam weapons, explosive weapons, teleporting weapons)
All the replayability ever. I can 100% guarantee that you will NEVER play the same run twice. Sometimes you'll get the GLAIVE BEAM OF DEATH, sometimes you will get the basic laser of OH GOD WE CAN'T PENETRATE THEIR SHIELDS, and sometimes you'll get both of them and then you can actually do something
So many unlockables. There are I believe 10 or 11 ships, maybe only 8, I really don't remember. Every ship has 3 types of that ship you can unlock except for 1 or 2 of them, plus they all have 2 ways of unlocking them, except for 3 of them, and one of them is one you start with
Music. The music is absolutely amazing. That is all
There are none
Uuuuuuuuuuuuh... I can't think of any. And that is a good thing!
All in all, this game is amazing and addictive, and I give it a 9/10. Why not a 10/10 even though I couldn't think of any negatives? BECAUSE THE GAME REFUSES TO GIVE ME THE GLAIVE BEAM! OH GOD GAME NO I'M SORRY FOR YELLING PLEASE NO DON'T SET THE OXYGEN SUPPLY ON FIRE OH GOD IS THAT A MANTIS BOMBER I'M SORR-
