    Rebirth is an incredible experience that can't be missed. Descend into the basement, lock the trapdoor behind you, and don't look back.

    While Binding of Isaac is a good contender for the Indie Game of 2014 title, it surely is the best roguelike game of our generation. Edmund McMillen unravels and dedicates his creative genius in bringing a remake of a game full of meaningful additions and improvements on gameplay. BoIR provides a golden standard on how games should be remade and/or improved. Whether you are a gamer who seeks small half-an-hour shots of gaming or a crazed achievement completionist, you'll have a hell of time (and it will be a lot) playing Rebirth. Get it now.

    The time I’ve spent with Binding of Isaac: Rebirth has been non-stop fun and surprises, with just a tad too much frustration when I lose a rare item.

    Crazier, funnier and bigger. Rebirth is a proper rebuilt of one of the most brilliant games we've enjoyed lately. There are a handful of new features and probably even more content than we could've asked for, even though die-hard fans might consider rebuying a game that's very much the same, but widely expanded.

    The Binding of Isaac is the reference for the rogue-like genre - even if you already know the "old" Isaac inside out.

    The excellent rogue-like horror came back to life with a new engine and lots of changes. Thanks to that, the game is a little more accessible, but still you will not get anything for free. Gameplay is great, Isaac’s torture still hurts and a joy of any tiny success will please you greatly. The Binding of Isaac is recommended by eight out of ten child psychiatrists.

    It introduces a lot of new content but other than that is worth than the original game in almost every aspect. [01/2015, p.73]

Runs perfectly at 60 fps on my (old) laptop, looks amazing with all the little details on the floors and walls and best of all: so much more content! I have unlocked almost everything in the original and I am glad to see that on my first run I didn't know half of the items I had on me.

    I have not had a chance to try out the co-op yet, but I sure will soon. Not sure if I like the soundtrack over the old one, but it's definitly a good one too.

    For the people who did not play the original: pick this up. It's only 15 bucks and it is probably the best roguelike dungeoncrawler on the market right now. There is just so much to unlock, so many secrets and so much to discover, this will keep you satisfied for years, trust me.

I watched and read reviews before the game, so I know and why all these people liked it ... but since this is my rating for my taste: This game is terrible ... all the meaning and surroundings that the author gave to the environment of Isaac, it was just disgusting. In all other aspects, if you are not repelled or vice versa, if you think that it is interesting and/or funny, you can try to play it. Expand
