"I don't see myself putting it down until I hit that magical 100% completion mark, which is hours and hours away at this point. This is one trip that I recommend to everyone open-minded enough to give it a chance." - Destructoid.com
"One may play for an hour or two, but they're constantly tempted to go back in and uncover the scads of remaining secrets. It's a style of game that really intrigues me, and one I want to see more of" - Gamecritics.com

The perfect combination of retro and wildly random shooter!thy_savior | Nov. 9, 2014 | See all thy_savior's reviews »
Imagine playing legend of zelda only the dungeons are randomly generated and you collect a large number of items that have numerous effects.
Well as much as this game looks like Zelda, it's not. Instead of using a sword you shoot tears, instead of an oversized arsenal of items you use them all at once! With the exception of Bombs and other little items.
Without spoiling the story, you go through multiple floors fighting a boss at the end of each one. Along the way you encounter many upgrades (and possible downgrades) that will help you along your journey to defeat the final boss.
There is a lot of characters to unlock with different stats and starting items. Also to increase replay ability there are tons more unlockable items, new floors, and many other hidden goodies to keep this game going!
The Binding of Isaac Rebirth however is a redux of this game with various improvements, but also is much different than the feel of this game.
Also great sound effects, enemy design, and general design of the levels.

This is one of my go to games whenever I have nothing to do. Whether it is for 10 minutes or 5 hours, I can sit and play this game forever. It is just a game that has replay value no matter how many times your beat it (which is not as easy as you think). With randomly generated floors, I can sit and play this game on and on without stopping except for the occasional rage quit. With it being such a low price, I cannot recommend this game more.
Great game to play!SharingIsMean | Oct. 19, 2014 | See all SharingIsMean's reviews »
Edmund McMillen (Creator of game) has really hit it big in this one. He brings a great twist to a top down shooter and adds a sort of twist with a "collect them all" feel to it. Definitely not a easy game, but that's what some games lack, so this game deserves its high ratings and this much recognition. Not only is this a great game though, it has a great community, tons of YouTubers are still playing this game regularly. I suggest you pick this game up and give it a whirl, I guarantee you'll have fun.

POSITIVE: - random levels - fun gameplay - you really want to beat the game ;) - looks pretty nice - the fanbase is doing a lot for it (platinumgod etc.)
NEGATIVE. - no really story - based on flash player, so its a bit laggy time to time - a few bugs that can destroy u a run
I really enjoy playing that game and can just prefer it (or buy the new title). The DLC is really worth it btw
