This game got me through High School
Must have about 1,000 offline hours on this, personally prefer it over Rebirth but that's a personal opinion (this version has pretty poor optimization because of it being flash based but still fantastic)

I recommend this game. Quite difficult, quite dark (but not every game can have sunshine in it), worth playing.

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
