The Binding of Isaac
"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 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.

UGH why on earth did I not read this more carefully. THIS GAME IS FULLY FUNCTIONAL WITH STEAM why sell it as an other DRM. I know it didn't pay much for it but not there is NO WAY for me to get my money back. I will literally never play this game if its not on steam.

I've played this game since 2012 and already clocked around 100 hours. I've been looking for more game like this but I can't really find any game that is as almost perfect as The Binding of Isaac. Sure, it runs pretty horribly because of its engine but the combination of the neat gameplay and endless replayabilty made this game worth it.
You can pick one character to play and the others required you to unlock them first. Each characters has different stats so you must adjust your playstyle according to the character you play. Every map has different layouts each time you decide to play it. In every there are some powerups you can find and boss that you must defeat to proceed to the next level. Binding of Isaac perfected this formula and making it the best of its genre.
