If you’re a fan of deck building or dungeon crawlers then Monster Slayers is a must try. For the $9 price tag there is an insane amount of content and replayability. Even just beating the Harbinger a single time is worth the price of admission, let alone trying out all the classes and taking a shot at Legendary mode. It’s hard to come up with anything negative to say about Monster Slayers; it’s really just a fun and balanced good time.
Several times over the last week or so, I’ve considered whether to sit down with Nier, Horizon, Torment, or Gravity Rush 2. It’s a tough decision. They’re worlds you fall into. Each of them is the sort of game you play for several hours at a time. You don’t boot them up lightly. Which one have I chosen? Well, before I commit, how about running a character real quick in Monster Slayers? Oops, I’ve just fallen into a world. A deck-building utopia.
Various RPG elements add a layer of depth to an already interesting combat system. The card element becomes addictive in a fun way, and slowly building up the characters is a task that many players will quickly come to enjoy. Most of the game connects very well with itself, barring the large issue of randomness in difficulty. To some degree, luck is always expected, but the complete and sudden difficulty cliffs that always occur later on ruin the immersion the rest of the game so carefully crafted. Perhaps a 'hardcore' mode would be a better option because the deadly spikes severely hamper what is otherwise a great game.
