    New items, new challenges, a new character, new room layouts, new bosses, new transformations, new soundtrack, new floors, and the list goes on. This is the expansion we were hoping for. Nicalis did us a solid and stuffed a disgusting amount of content in a game already bursting with disgusting content. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to kill Mother for the thousandth time.

    There's a lot to love about The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth. It's a great expansion to a great base game. If you enjoyed Rebirth, you'll love Afterbirth.

    We now have a complete, perfect version of The Binding of Isaac, one which, it seems, can sustain no further refinement.

    McMullen did it again. With the latest expansion The Binding of Isaac got bigger, better, and it became even more of a virtual drug (if that was even possible). It’s a disturbing game, but also one that needs to be played, and slowly analyzed. Room after room, trauma after trauma, forever and ever.

    The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is packed with content and knows like no other 2D game how to turn a gloomy atmosphere down.

    McMillen’s dungeon is really worth revisiting. Afterbirth does not introduce any spectacular changes but offers tons of new content. [01/2016, p.73]

    In contrast to the previous expansion, Afterbirth is just a collection of scraps and trimmings that has nothing original to offer.

За 150 рублей ты получаешь расширение игры и в ширь (больше всего - врагов, локаций, предметов, героев, режимов игры), так и в глубь (новые механики, челленджи, концовки и секреты). Это не просто 50-100 часов геймплея, это повод снова окунуться в атмосферу безысходности и изучить все закоулки тёмного мира Айзека. Expand

Not only are there new items, bosses, a character and modes, but also new synergies and touching up on rebirth. For example, quad and triple shot go together to make a shotgun blast of seven tears. It's great, and worth your money and time. Expand

    Explicar un juego así es complicado.
    Su belleza recae en su DURA jugabilidad, que no te dejará ni un solo minuto de descanso.

    Explicar un juego así es complicado.
    Su belleza recae en su DURA jugabilidad, que no te dejará ni un solo minuto de descanso.
    La dificultad es MUY elevada, haciendo muy complicado que un juego así sea del agrado de mucha gente, ya que siempre se empieza practicamente medio muerto. Pero ahí es donde recae la grandeza de este título.
    Es cierto que es muy difícil, pero tambien es cierto que rejugándolo una y otra vez puedes conseguir una firme base para moverte por el juego.
    El progreso es lento, ya que los personajes están bloqueados o los mejores items están bloqueados tambien. Pero la falta de pistas induce a querer encontrarlo todo...
    Es cierto que recibe un 9 por motivos de dificultad, algo que debería irse incrementando a medida que jugamos y no al revés.
    Pero los items aleatorios dan una gran satisfacción al saber las grandes maravillas que pueden salirte.
    Un gran juego, muy adictivo y muy difícil... Se juega mejor con mando xD
