    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.

    A huge expansion for an already massive game with unending replay value. Not only does the DLC add well over 100 items and a whole new gameA huge expansion for an already massive game with unending replay value. Not only does the DLC add well over 100 items and a whole new game mode but all of the new mechanic tweaks and items add a whole new level of fun to the game, allowing you to get a much wider range of weapon combos that I think I'll be discovering for years. An essential DLC if you enjoyed Rebirth. Expand
