Gamezebo said "Summoner Wars is to become the flagship title in the case for digital board games. It's cheaper. It's prettier. Less hassle. Perfect multiplayer that allows you to play as often as you like. If you're a fan of strategy games, this is a must-buy. And even if you're not, the game is free to try, and you have nothing to lose."[5] Pocket Gamer described the game as "A complex, but accessible, card-based strategy game that combines elements of Magic: The Gathering with Risk and Stratego."[6] Eurogamer wrote "It's hard not to feel Summoner Wars is a great game, verging on superb, that's held back by a highly polished but functionally thin app.[7] TouchArcade said the game was "A must-have for gamers who want more tactical maneuvering in their CCGs or more customization in their strategy games. However, its flaws and the price point for full buy-in mean that it's not for everyone, but being free to try and having a flexible IAP system means that it's worth checking out either way."[4]
