10Very little game that gives you way more fun-moments than most big titles. You keep replaying it and it never gets boring. It's very hard and you need a lot of practice. Not that that is a problem. The game is packed with shady humor and it's really suited for almost everybody with some sense pf humor… Expand
8I was really optimistic when I heard about this DLC first time. Finally it came out so I bought it. It was cheap, and what I get is, a really good expansion! So many new contents. New bosses, enemies, new room types, tons of new items, and new endings. It is really satisfying to play The Binding of Isaac - The Wrath of the Lamb. The new level types and curses and the trinkets makes the gameplay better. Some of the new enemies are challenging but the difficulty is still fair. There is a new challenge mode with ten challenges, they're also fun and worth to play for some new items. In some challenges you start with good items, but there are no item rooms. So it is fairly balanced. It is a little bit more difficult than before, but it is still OK.
On the bad side of TBoI : The Wrath of the Lamb, the DLC is glitchy! There are so many minor and major glitches. Fortunately I didn't run into most of them, but I experienced some and I read about them. The creators try to fix them, v1.15 is already out, but it is still glitchy. Hopefully, major bugs will be fixed, sometimes it can break your gameplay. For example, you can teleport into isolated secret rooms, there is no escape from those out. It can be very annoying.
There is an other issue since the original game: performance. It is horrible on a weaker computer. There is absolutely no GPU support, everything is calculated by the CPU. If you have a bad CPU, you will get serious slowdowns. The game was written in Flash unfortunately, and in The Wrath of the Lamb, there is still no GPU acceleration. I'm sure if it was written for an other engine, it was way much faster. I was hoping Florian Himsl will do something about it.
If there was no performance issues and glitches I would give The Binding of Isaac : The Wrath of the Lamb a 10. The gameplay is perfect, you won't be bored after playing it a hundred times. It will be always fresh, you will be surprised by getting new items, and other random stuffs.
Even with the issues, this game is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!… Expand
7Wrath of Lamb fixes a bit of what was empty in the original game. There's still major design flaws in the game (IE having dungeons generated with tons of things you have no capability of getting no matter what path you choose, basement doors opening up right from under you and taking you to the next level before you can get the powerups after a boss victory, enemy health bars being completely not accurate for instance having an empty bar of health and still going on for a good 10 **** shots, etc. etc.) and there are still plenty of bugs. Trinkets are added which are a pretty "meh" addition in my mind, one HUGE qualm I have with them is that most of them are slight stat boosters, yet you get NO indiciation of what they do - it isn't like a normal powerup or item where in the bottom right it displays what it does, and you can't hover over the item icon or anything to get a brief description of what it's doing (That would just be TOO useful now wouldn't it?), basically it forces you to go outside of the game and look up online wikis to see what they do. That's **** unacceptable - bad design at its finest.
On principal I also think it's **** you don't have an option to play normal binding of isaac gameplay, once you purchase this game through steam you're **** stuck with it. There's no option in game, no option to uninstall, nope you are now playinig wrath of the lamb indefinitely. Unaccaptable and lazy on behalf of the developer.
I'm giving it a decent rating because despite it's flaws (which really irk because they'd be EASY to overcome if the developer wasn't so lazy) it's a HIGHLY replayable game, with a great amount of challenge and variety. Well worth the 3 bucks or whatever the **** it costs, it's definitely worth the money, just be prepared to rage often and heavy.… Expand
