One of the best flash player-based games i've ever seen. You can spend hours and days playing this game and it will not bother you, because every time you press "new game" - it will always be a random playthrough. A perfect time-killer. Edmund McMillen is a genius. Only one thing that disturbs you during the game - is lags and freezes even on good PC's. Highly recommend this game.

It's rated mature in Germany for a reason; it's blasphemous but unless you're isaacs mom you won't be offended, it's perma-death so every heart counts adding difficulty, and the dark humor the game exhibits make it humorous when a crying child picks up absurd things from his mom and wears them to somehow get perks for his eternal tears

If you like a challenge this is the game for you. I have fully completed this game and I must say it can be pretty rage inducing at some points and luck determines a main part of how the game goes, but to win you do need to try pretty hard yourself too and overal the game is pretty balanced. If you buy the game you should buy the Wrath of the Lamb DLC with it since it is really worth it. It includes more items and bosses.
There is a remake of the game called The binding of Isaac: Rebirth (And Afterbirth DLC) and if you like this game I would also recommend Rebirth since it's mostly the same game but with even more horrors and challenges. This game does have one major addition called hard mode/ ethernal mode which adds even harder bosses and harder variations on existing monsters.

In conclusion, the game is pretty hard and if you like a chalenge you should consider buying this game especially if its on sale.

This game is a fun little time killer. The incentive for collectibles makes it that much more enjoyable. Think of it as a dark, gruesome Zelda game. Top down view, enter square rooms, kill monsters, then on to the next room. There are plenty of different combinations of abilities, which makes each time you play it different. All the rooms are randomly generated, as well as the items that drop. It's worth the money.
