A must have, for everyone

commascientist | Nov. 5, 2013 | Review of The Binding of Isaac

 Once you can see past the newgrounds.com art style and the tons and tons of poop, piss and blood EVERYWHERE, this game is incredible. The roguelike random configuration of rooms, items and powerups provide a completely unique experience every run, making the replayability basically infinite.
 Armed with only Isaacs tears and 1 life (yep, permadeath!) you'll take on HOARDS of enemies and bosses in intense bullet hell style. You'll die. You'll die again. You'll die A LOT. Each death honing your skills while taking you deeper and deeper into Isaac's hauntingly twisted world... which only unlocks more items, powers, and enemies for you to encounter on your future runs (randomly of course!).
 All in all, this game is a BEAST. The dark imagery, intense bullet hell action, insane roguelike randomness; easily one of the best indie games of all time, and certainly a classic for years to come.
