Really addicting gamekiflajiq | Aug. 23, 2014 | See all kiflajiq's reviews »
I mean...where do I start? The game is basically this - you are the little Isaac who has to kill various monstrosities and escape the basement because his mother is a religious weirdo. Simple, right? Wrong. If only I had counted the times I started over and over and over just because I got hooked up and though I could beat my last result... One of the great things is that every time you start over the levels are generated randomly which makes the replay value go sky high. There is a huge amount of content, items and "secrets" for you to find in the basement.
The only downside that I could think of is that this isn't a Steam supported version. Too bad.
BUY THE GAME. PERIOD.
Awesome Game!SneakyBadger_AK | Aug. 23, 2014 | See all SneakyBadger_AK's reviews »
This game is one of a kind, i fully recommend this game however if you were like me and failed to read the fine print before purchasing this game is not for steam and requires a third party launcher to play it. This Is the DRM version of the game not the Steam version.
Brilliant, funny & challengingGingerokda | Aug. 16, 2014 | See all Gingerokda's reviews »
the concept behind the story is entertaining & the levels are challenging. I love the fact whenever you start again it is NEVER the same, so you can never get bored! It's just brilliant!

Isaac's history brought me some tears along with gameplay itself. Game is addictive and creative but a little bit repetable. Levels are randomly generated, items uncountable, bosses unique, characters original. Devs provided a lot of hidden humor in miserable life of Isaac. Great game to pass your free time, possibly destroy your life.
I totally reccomend it because level of joy is very adequate to its price.
A nice game to play.guiergot | Aug. 9, 2014 | See all guiergot's reviews »
It's really exciting in the beggining, a lot to things to conquer, funny and I assure you that you will waste a lot of time of your life playing this. But after a time the game is getting repetitive and boring, if you have a lot of games and don't know what game you should play, play a The Binding of Isaac, I recommend you just to play this game as a hobby, it's a really nice game and the game does not deserve to be forgotten by you! Remember, The Binding of Isaac is just a "fast game" so don't expect too much from.
