Guys this seems a little slow paced and kind of methodical to me. Is it a fun game or you have to be into this kind of game to enjoy it?

I didn't even know what to think when I saw the post stating that this'll be out on April 3rd... And Infact, I still don't...
This is a definite #instabuy for me, and many, MANY of you others. Haha, staying in a hotel in the next state on Friday, (day after it'll be released where I am) so I MUST take it with!!!
Oh my gosh, screw plane sleeping, FTL here I come!!!

I am not too much into real-time strategy nor strategy games in general, but I can assure you I loved this one on PC. It has action, strategy, randomness, unlockable ships, sci-fi theme... It's perfect!

FTL is one of those games everyone likes, it's roguelike , Sci-if themed, some RPG elements and awesome soundtrack.
This game will fulfill all your " I want to be a spaceship captain" needs , only bad thing is that it's too addicting.

Most games are "you have to be into it to enjoy it" realistically, so that's kind of a loaded question. As easily accessible as runners and match three games are I have to force myself to personally play them unless there is a title that really stands out, for example. In any case this is not an easily accessible game to the typical casual gamer and while it's not dauntingly complex there are layers of strategy and a learning curve. You are not just going to pick this up and be able to play it in a couple of minutes without a tutorial. With that said, it is one of the most rewardingly fun games and once you do learn all the systems you will find out why this is held in high regard and why most of us here have been clamping for its release. And I wouldn't say that it was slow paced as it has a somewhat hectic and urgent design that makes managing events very tense and satisfying. You should just watch some gameplay videos other than that one Eli did; ones of the PC version.

I know I will be smashing the buy button Faster Than Light!

FTL is one of my all time favorites. Strategic, deep, expansive, challenging, so damn addictive. This is one of those games where you always have awesome stories to tell, stories where you survived by the skin of your teeth thanks to quick thinking or how one poor decision snowballed into some spectacular failure

Hours and hours and hours of content and layers of complexity even without the Advanced Edition update and you'll still discover new things

This is everything Star Command desperately wanted to be, but 100x better
