It's an amazing turn based strategy game with a great soundtrack and pretty much infinite replayability. I wholeheartedly recommend you pick it up if you didn't already get it with the 6th Humble Bundle with Android. (the game's expansion is also on sale for $1.99)
Not changing this sig until Monster Hunter 4 comes out in US

How is the game if you aren't interested in the multiplayer?
Everything's shiny, Cap'n. Not to fret.

I was really unimpressed with it. Thought it would be cool, but mostly just found it uninteresting for my tastes. Never bothered with multiplayer, but there are times were it feels you just had to get lucky on the dice roll to clear a mission.

Frozen Synapse is very likely the worst game I have ever played. I had high hopes for it but man that game was so freaking terrible and I actually like games of that style too

The multiplayer was a great concept but it was lacking in options (I can't remember the name of the modes but the normal combat mode only had a couple different unit loadouts that could come up. They should have made a much larger variety of possible loadouts to keep things interesting.) and the community was too small and unstable (You could start 5 games with 5 people and 2 or 3 people would quit the game altogether before the match was finished). Unfinished matches are fine but the game didn't have any way of handling them so you'd have unfinished games cluttering up your list. They should have made it so a player would be disqualified if they didn't move after x days. I know the expansion had something called Hot Seat Mode or something. I didn't check it out so maybe that addressed the issue, I can't say.

I found the single player to be dreadful and dropped it after a handful of missions. Maybe things have changed since I bought it but that's my experience.
