There is a great learning curve where the puzzles get harder as you progress.
The soundtrack is short, but doesn't feel repetitive, and it matches the universe and story perfectly.
The story and humor is a little lame and childish in my opinion, but in a way that oddly matches the universe and gameplay too.
The replayability for this game is also incredible. The story took me about 6 hours to beat and still had as much fun when I went back to get the "blocks that matter". Then there still are the bonus stages (which are incredibly hard) and the level-editor + user-generated content which they have made with the level-editor.
All in all this is a fantastic game, that no puzzle-fan should miss, especially not when they are practically giving it away for almost no money at all!… Expand

But when I dived into the game, I foundThe Binding of Isaac is a fun game, but at first I was disappointed when I saw the length of the game. But when I dived into the game, I found the same satisfaction of playing, like I did with Demon's Souls on Playstation 3. You will die a lot, but that slow progression, and the satisfaction from defeating a boss for the first time is great.
The soundtrack get's a little repetitive after a while, although it is a short and good soundtrack.
For being a fairly short game, it still has a great system where it lays every new level map randomly + different bosses for each playthrough + all the loot.
Even though the game is depressing in many ways and there is an awful lot of blood and tears, there is a twisted and hilarious sense of humor in the game, and I found myself laughing at different bosses and loot I got.
So all in all this is a fun game, and definitely a must-buy if you are a fan of the roguelike genre, and since it is so dirt cheap I also strongly recommend it for newcomers and computer gamers alike.… Expand
