Let It Die has numerous rough edges, but it manages to entertain through the sheer force of its weird personality and its varied, if clumsy combat. The controls are often clunky and there's rarely a meaningful sense of attachment to characters or gear, but its characterizations and settings often manage to keep the pain of the poorer stuff down to a minimum, at least for a while.
A fun mix of Dark Souls and roguelike, and although the microtransactions create their own problems it does mean everyone can now experience a Suda51 game for free.
Those looking for a challenging game with lots of variety, bizarre but interesting characters and settings, and a compelling, addictive loot loop will walk away satisfied
There's nothing out there quite like Let It Die. This action game offers Souls-like combat, 40 floors to tackle, multiple paths to tackle, and a host of gear to make your own oddball fighter. The free-to-play mechanics are reasonable until you get to higher levels, where a death spiral may leave you looking for your credit card. It's not perfect, but Let It Die is damned fun.
I can really get lost in the world of Let it Die, and I think I'll be playing it off and on for the next several weeks at the very least. It begs you to come back, and given the platform in which it's been distributed, it's something that can easily evolve into a better game in the future.
A game that manages to entertain despite being a little rough around the edges. It's not particularly beautiful or well controlled, although it's fun. .

It’s definitely worth the time, especially being free to start, and I would recommend anybody with a PS4 and a love of brawling check it out. It’s a well put together little game with a good dash of trademark Grasshopper oddity. As a throwaway bit of violent action with some clever online features, it’s a good time.
Let it Die is hacky, slashy, and sometimes a little spendy, but with a game like this you can’t turn away. A deliberate and intense action murder simulator rife with humor, morbidity, and tons of style, Let it Die overcomes a few flaws to be a top notch and surprisingly great title. As it is free, there is absolutely no reason not to get it on the action.
Suda51's insane humor is more than enough to keep this free-to-play Souls title going, although some of the mechanics might keep players from sticking through the entire experience.
Suda51 tries to find the recipe for a perfect souls-like, but misses the correct dosage of the main ingredients: Let it Die is clearly unbalanced, and the ineffective mix of survival and roguelike diminish the ambitions of this pulp adventure.

That being said, Let It Die feels pretty damn polished for a game that costs nothing to play. In spite of the terrible menus and potentially broken PVP aspects, Let It Die is still very much a fun roguelike action RPG you can easily sink hours into.
Let It Die is a unique free-to-play game with great settings and gameplay. This souls-like manages to create an engaging experience along the levels of the Tower of Barbs through good combat system and interesting character development. Procedural level design might be a little repetitive but it is a compromise that is worth taking. Multiplayer is solid and well developed as well, it creates genuine competition among the players.

Let It Die is flawed, but it’s perhaps the best free-to-play game ever made on the PS4. It’s different, daring, and occasionally impossible. But it’s also a must play for fans of the roguelike gene.
Another weird but compelling release from Suda51
An inscrutable black box, covered in punk-rock graffiti and splattered in blood.
A lot of what I’ve just written may sound like I didn’t enjoy Let It Die that much, but no, I did enjoy it quite a lot indeed.
Let It Die is an ambitious game that threatens to charm players, but ultimately falls short due to unpolished gameplay, repetitious level design, and some really awful freemium schemes.
Let it die is a game for gamers; self referential, challenging, while being extremely fair in all aspects of the gameplay. While being a free to play game, it 100% does not feel like a free to play game. With tones to explore, collect, craft, and kill, there is a whole lot of game here to be had, and the fact that it is free makes it a must download.
“Probably (not) the greatest game ever made.”
Let It Die is all about conquering new heights and overcoming obstacles. Sometimes it's fun, sometimes just annoying.
