    A sublime, impeccably crafted roguelike card-battler that is absolutely without peer, Slay the Spire cements its place as one of the best games of this console generation. This. Is. Essential.

    Slay the Spire is a very difficult but hugely rewarding roguelike built around deck building and card battling. Each failure is a learning experience and the desire to succeed will keep you playing for potentially hundreds of hours.

    Slay The Spire is an ingenious and addicting blend of card game strategy and rogue-like mechanics. It's a potent mix that will keep you coming back for more, even if death often awaits you.

    Slay the Spire may have some slight performance issues in the transition from PC to console, but the game is still one of the best deck-building games out there. It’s definitely one of the best titles published by Humble Bundle so far, and it deserves its spot among the top-rated games of 2019.

    Slay the Spire is a hugely enjoyable single-player deck-builder that feels genuinely unique in its genre.

    Slay the Spire takes the best parts of roguelites, dungeon crawlers, and card games, and mixes them together into an unholy, but absurdly enjoyable game. It’s the kind of game that gets under your skin and uses it like a tent, just camping out and reminding you that you aren’t playing it. It’s the kind of game that you can jump in for one quick run and suddenly realise that you've been playing for five hours and should really be asleep. It’s the kind of game that is easy to play, hard to master, and impossible to put down. What more could you want?

    An excellent mix of turn-based dungeon crawler, roguelike, and card game whose perfectly balanced combat will have you constantly coming back for more.

I'm not a huge fan of deck-builders nor roguelikes, but somehow this game really worked. Does a great job of allowing you to play combos that feel rewarding without needing to strategize for minutes ahead of time. The pacing and difficulty curve both meshed well with my ability level. Enough variety in the playable characters to make it refreshing to do reruns even after clearing the game with each one. Enjoyed this game thoroughly. Expand

It's fun BUT has some battles (especially end of level bossSlay the spire is an RPG where your character plays cards for attack and defense. It's fun BUT has some battles (especially end of level boss battles) that are simply unwinnable! The issue first of all is the card system. Cards you start with are trash! Cards picked up are random! So you have as much chance of a good card as you do trash! There are merchants but gold is so scarce they're virtually pointless as you can't sell cards! Next issue is that some end of level bosses are unbeatable! The time guardian boss will trash you every time with his ability to end your turn when you've not even played a card! This happened 4 times in a row which didn't even allow me to play a defense card so I was dead in no time. This boss is simply too overpowered so you'll never get a decent fight. As said, the game is fun when you start but the random cards and overpowered level bosses make for a frustrating game and this left me feeling underwhelmed! Luckily I got the game free with PlayStation plus! Otherwise I'd have felt cheated out of £20! I've had 9 playthroughs in less than a week and the game is now boring due to the lack of character development ( there isn't any!) And the random cards and overpowered bosses! Nice idea, poorly executed! Expand

I can prove it to you. At the start of a battle remember your cards. Force quit the game and reload it. The next draw will always be the same which could never occur if the cards were drawn randomly. So unfortunately its all fake!

    I expect a card game to be random. By that I mean that cards should be drawn randomly. Not in this game, you either get cards drawn preselected by the developers or their random card drawer is extremely bad implemented. I had a deck of 50 cards and one of the cards I had five times in the deck. Next draw I get 4 of those 5 cards onto my hand! Do you know how low the odds are for that to happen?! And this did not happen only once, it happens all the time. After this the game became unplayable for me.
