Emily Balistrieri gives Next Life 4.5/10:
"Next Life's story gets more…intriguing? as you go, but the animation and gameplay continue to be a slow drip of super-clunk tempered only a little by a sprinkle of more action-oriented mini-games. The atmosphere is marred by uneven voice acting quality while the pressure of a time limit occasionally screws with player's problem solving method. Your current life should have enough good games in it this time of year without having to adventure beyond the beyond."
