Ever wonder what exactly is down in the basement? Then 'The Binding of Isaac' will happily answer that and more. As one of the best examples of how to build a rogue like game not just for challenge and replayability but also showcase how item synergies can turn the average into the amazing.

This original version however has been completely overshadowed now by the remake: http://store.steampowered.com/app/250900/ wich is the right version to get.

If you like flash games you will love this because that is actually what it is. Just a generic boring flash game weird version of zelda. It is really nothing more than a crappy flash game ported into a full game and it has overwhelmingly positive review status because who knows. I paid a dollar for it and thats about what it is worth. The challenge comes from being extremely lucky to find a very random weapon upgrade, and sucky controls. It would be easier if I could use my controller to play, but while 99% of games recognize a xbox 360 controller right away because that's what Windows and all good games ♥♥♥♥ing do, recognizes it right away because its a Microsoft product, this game tries to tell you to use some special controller enabling program. I eventually gave in and got it and tried playing with my xbox 360 controller and the controls still blow equally as much as the keyboard controls do. Well it really isn't so much the controls blowing as the fact that it is just a stiff flash game that has the bare minimum of effort put into the movement and attack. Basically up down left right, just like a old dog crap NES game or a free flash game. This game ♥♥♥♥ing sucks.

4/10 Snore zzZZZZZZzzzzzZZZzZZZZzzz........

12 different endings, and every playthrough is different from the last. Just beat it for the third time and ready for my fourth playthrough.

A unique and good overall game. It'll take a while to get bored of this game. Randomly generated levels, over sixteen possible endings, (I think, don't hurt me if I'm wrong) and over two hundred different power-ups, all in a random order. You can get bad loadouts or good loadouts. It's all about luck, which I don't really like.



I do recommend this game, but not for everybody.

After 28.3 hours, i want to review The Binding Of Isaac
Story:
This is The Binding Of Isaac, where you play as boy who his name is Isaac and he lives with his religiously Mother.
One day his Mother received an order from God to kill Isaac where you gonna see it at the opening of the game. When his mother received the order from God, Isaac was locked out in his room, and Isaac sees her already preparing knife to kill Isaac. His mother kicked the Isaac door room. Isaac dont know what to do and underneath his carpet theres like a cave full of evil things where Isaac gonna escape from his mother, this is where the adventure starts.

Gameplay:
At first when i play, suddenly i get used to it (yeah because it was easy..). Im so addicted to this gane, even if im always losing, i just want to finish it again and again. After you defeat the boss, you get into the different cave and gonna defeat all the boss again, until you reach the main boss fight. To makes thing easy this game gives you like ability, unique items and power-ups! And make your own Isaac looks weird AF. Well i dont know what to say anymore, its just very good and addicting!

Dont hesitate if you're buying this game or not, just buy it people! And its actually cheap for me especially when this game on sale, i got this when there's Hallowen Sale last year. It is worth it...

This game is super tough but fun, The game will beat you and destroy your will to live, but if you Git Gud then you'll be the one making the game cry itself to sleep at night.
Except for the hard mode, there is no salvation from that.
10/10 I die, I live, I die again.

Probably the first game I've ever played where I can end up both hating it and love it at the same time, it's a cartoony dark souls, you'll die... you'll die lots. You may have a good run where you get lots of fantastic items, and then the next it will be constant rubbish, but half the fun is trying to get as far as you can with the things you have (I'm sure there is a life lesson in there)

The graphics are nice, the music is ok but it does get very repetitive quickly, the gameplay is fun but frustrating (vague memories of hurling abuse at the screen), however when you have stupid amounts of failure and then finish it, that is a great feeling of pride. whether full price or on sale, it's a bargain
