    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.
  2. Tedious pace and annoying pixel hunts sabotage this surreal adventure.
  3. Next Life is fairly lengthy, probably 15+ hours of playtime, but it's not quality time because of the abundance of backtracking and slow animations.
  4. Your current life is too short to waste on this next one. [Mar 2008, p.77]
