Awesome.

The Binding of Isaac is a great game. This is an arcade dungeon crawler packed with a ton of content, including collectables, secrets, unlockable cool characters. Every playthrough will be different, since the dungeons spawn random order, which adds a lot of replay value. The game has a great art style, as well as a sort of creepy feel to it.

I'd recommend getting the game along with it's DLC, "Wrath of The Lamb", for even more content, characters, etc.

Oh, and you will die alot. The game offers you a great challenge and i personally loved every moment of it.

Fun for a While

The Binding of Isaac provides a fun time, but not for a long time. It has enjoyable game play and a quirky story, but it doesn't hold the attention long. After a while the game gets stale,and most people (myself included) will get bored after a while. In conclusion, The Binding of Isaac is good for a short amount of time, but if you're looking for a long-term investment, this might not be the way to go.

The Binding of Isaac is a unique game.The art style is a lot different than what you see every day.You want to spend lots of hours in a game?Then The Binding of Isaac is for you.But remember this:It is not a easy game.You will try and fail a lot of times so expect for some rage until you get used to it.Every time you start the game there are random levels so you will not play the same thing over and over again.You have a LOT of unlockables and secrets to unlock.I definetely recommend.

One of the Best in the Genre

The Binding of Isaac is my first experience with the so-called 'roguelite' games. Since then I've played countless similar games with the same concept but I always come back to this game. Why? Because it simply has unlimited replayability. Every run you do has different item combinations and you have to use your reflex and experience to reach the final boss. The DLC is also a must if you enjoy the base game, as it contains more items, levels and enemies which can add more hours to your playtime.

Great way to start adventure with rogue-like games.

The Binding of Isaac was my first rogue-like game that I ever played. If I ever played something earlier, I didn't probably knew about this genre. So what's with that rogue-like game? Every time you start new game, you are getting something new. I mean, you won't play on the same map, you won't get same items, the enemies will change. Every new game is really new and how you will do in later rooms and floors depend only on your luck and SKILL. If you are lucky, you will get items that will help you win the game without any problems. But mostly you won't get that luck and there where SKILL come. Every enemy need a way to be killed, same with boss fights. It's not very complicated, but you will spend really much time trying to figure things out, what items give and take from you, how to play to win the game. The game have multiple ending, characters, tons of items and unlimited hours of fun. For this price you won't find a game that is more addicting and giving so much fun. This is easily one of the best indie games.
