“Monster Train might be the best deckbuilder since Slay The Spire”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“Monster Train's game mechanics offer a neat spin on the deck-building genre and it will be interesting to see how the game evolves in the future.”
4/5 – Screenrant

“Monster Train is a pleasant, mind-blowingly addictive exercise that’s well worth your time, especially if you’re a fan of roguelikes, card games, and deck-building fare”
9/10 – Game Informer
