Critic Reviews for Monster Train

A deckbuilder that will have you doing hit point calculations and liking it.

Do you like Slay The Spire? If so, you should absolutely try Monster Train's more tactical spin on the deck-building roguelike, which literally layers on new ideas and has every bit as much depth and variety.

Monster Train may seem simple at first, but hours melt away with disturbing ease as you attempt to break the game – then break it even more as the challenge rises

A nice deck-building game that capitalizes on the basic ideas seen in Slay the Spire and adds tower-defense to them, creating a unique mix.

Whilst unashamedly similar to Slay the Spire, Monster Train has enough of its own ideas to deliver its own blend of deep, addictive fun.

I was surprised to realize that I'd already played Monster Train for 15 hours before I began to write this review, and I wasn't even halfway finished with unlocking everything. The randomization of the relics, cards, and other elements of the game keep it fresh and fun long after you've beaten the game a few (dozen) times. If you are a fan of card battlers, this is a must have.

I’ll be playing this one for a long time. After a dozen or so hours, I’m completely hooked. An impressive number of cards, enemies, items, and more to discover is going to keep me on this train, and the excellent visuals and music will help make the ride to hell… heavenly. It could use a patch or two, but Monster Train is a smash hit.

Monster Train is a very unique take on the Slay the Spire formula, with great writing and art direction and gameplay that invites you back for many more rides.
