NPC’s in Let it Die are quite refreshing and bring a certain personality and charm you won’t find in a lot of other games. You have a skateboarding skeleton as your guide through the tower. Did I mention he calls you Senpai in a Spanish accent? While you’re back in the arcade you’ll also meet Detox, a young girl who’ll remind you of those 80’s bubblegum popping cheerleaders you never got to date. Acting as your living tutorial you’ll meet Meijin, a pro-gamer who decides to mentor you in the art of playing Let it Die.

After working your way up the tower you’ll unlock new options in the Waiting Room; which acts as the main hub for you to purchase new weapons and craft materials. Durability plays a big role in your survival while traversing the tower, which is why it’s important to save as many blueprints as you can in your inventory since crafted weapons gain full durability. Weapons you find while climbing Let it Die’s tower are usually low on durability and prone to breaking mid-fight when you’ll need them most. On top of crafting weapons you can also power-up armor and weapon’s you’ve already found the blueprints for by using upgrade materials scattered throughout the tower or by completing side-quests.


While I haven’t finished climbing the tower and beating the game I can safely say that Let it Die is worthy of a download and is a fantastic free-to-play title that doesn’t tread on the “pay-to-win” aspect that most gamers are familiar with. While you can optionally pay to get coins or death tokens (continues) they don’t shove it down your throat and in the 15 hours I’ve poured into the game I haven’t had a need to pay a dime to continue playing. Let it Die feels like a full-priced title and actually has more content than some AAA games. Overall if you own a Playstation 4 and haven’t downloaded Let it Die you’re honestly doing yourself a disservice. Head to the Playstation Store right now and download it Senpai!
