VGChartz's Lee Mehr: "Death's Door isn't shy about flaunting its inspirations. The soaring success over similar adventure titles stems back to its slight nuances and implementation; so confident is it in these strengths that some of the best content awaits after the credits roll. The unabashed approach to avaricious elders staving off the natural life/death cycle is also unexpected and welcomed. It has issues, its gameplay baseline being the most noticeable for genre veterans, but the accumulation of so many elements to crow about – characters, polish, creativity, art design, combative pacing, and so on – made it an experience I couldn't put down. It would be caw-ful if you missed out on Acid Nerve’s latest."
