    11 days ago - By GameSpot

    There are more games coming out now than ever before, but it's rare that we slow down and take notice when a lot of promising games come out on the same day.

    If Death's Door were applying for the role of an essential top-down action adventure, it would have quite an impressive resume; with its Zelda-like exploration and dungeon puzzles, engaging fast-paced combat, and levels that're brimming with irresistible secrets.

    11 days ago - By GameSpot

    After each of the challenging, climatic boss fights in Death's Door , you're forced to sit through a brief eulogy for the foe you've just slain. Sombre music plays as a gravedigger arrives to fulfill his duty, summerizing your enemy's actions-good and bad-while also throwing in a joke or two for levity. Death's Door doesn't take itself too seriously, but it always finds interesting ways to make a point about the unending cycle of life and death, the pursuit of a means to unbalance that cycle, and ultimately the consequences of those actions. It's a consistently entertaining...

I foresee any Nintendo likers out there immediately thinking: "I'll get this on my...
