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

    Games don't get better than The Binding of Isaac. Edmund McMillan is one of the greatest game designers of all time and that's apparent inGames don't get better than The Binding of Isaac. Edmund McMillan is one of the greatest game designers of all time and that's apparent in every nook and cranny of Isaac. Yes, it is absurdly difficult and never gets easy no matter how much you play. The only way to win consistently is to become a total BofI expert. You have to know what every item does and understand all the tricks needed to maximize the potential of every choice that the game presents. It's immensely rewarding once you get the hang of it. The music is wonderful and the art style totally quirky and delightful. You won't understand how it's possible to put "embryo" and "adorable" in the same sentence until you play Isaac. A must have game for hardcore gamers. Expand

    This expansion adds so much new content that it's hard to go back to the original. Using the new character, Samson, requires a strategyThis expansion adds so much new content that it's hard to go back to the original. Using the new character, Samson, requires a strategy different from playing as other characters, and it adds a new level of difficulty to the game. Yes, it has its fair share of bugs, but I would rather have them patched later than to have had to wait even longer to get this expansion. Why? It's a diamond in the rough, not a polished turd. I find the glitches to be anything but detrimental (except for one where you fight a difficult boss from very far in the game) and in some cases, amusing, similar to Skyrim. It's three dollars. You can't go wrong. Just get it. Expand

    Wrath 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 generatedWrath 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.
