    An improvement in nearly every way to the original. It is a fun, highly addictive, and immersive experience that will grip you with its unique design, tight gameplay, high replay value, and compelling cast of characters.

    The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is the perfect version of The Binding of Isaac, with more content, more blood and more mom.

    It is a spectacular, affecting journey, even if its destination is perhaps the creator's alone.
  4. If it’s not the best indie game of the year, it’s pretty bloody close to it.

    The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is an even greater version of a already amazing game. Rebirth addresses the frame-rate issues of the original and adds new items and bosses to shoot your tears at.

    The Binding of Isaac pulls off everything it tries to do, and very well. The story is interesting, the gameplay fantastic, and the art and music are wonderful as well. The only things I found wrong with the game were that the bosses were repetitive and the challenge mode was lacking fun.

    The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is a fast-paced and fun twin-stick shooter.

    After the first hours of playing this I am addicted. This is everything that was promised by the developers. If Binding of Isaac was the kingAfter the first hours of playing this I am addicted. This is everything that was promised by the developers. If Binding of Isaac was the king of Action Rogue-likes (with countless "clones" made after it) this is the **** EMPEROR.

    Despite the new pixelated graphics, the graphics are BETTER. The soundtrack is amazing, it makes you tingle with horror and excitement at the same time. The controls (although mouse was not implemented) are flawless everything responds exemplary. The content ... well the content is ... I have no words for it ... other than godlike in every aspect.

    Crap-loads of new items (it will probably be weeks before you can memorize what they all do) with brilliant interactions and new mechanics, each game plays differently ... and when I say differently I mean it almost feels like it's another game entirely.

    Support the developers and buy this game! This is too good ... you will be playing and enjoying it a lot more that whatever else 15$ or your local equivalent can buy. I guarantee it.

It really brings me back to those feelings of frustration I had playing these kinds of games as a kid. It's a game that has be coming back two years post-release. Everything from the gameplay to the soundtrack are top notch. Expand

    I already gave a 10/10 review for PS Vita version few months back after I first killed mom, thinking that the game is over, oh boy I couldn'tI already gave a 10/10 review for PS Vita version few months back after I first killed mom, thinking that the game is over, oh boy I couldn't have been more wrong. That was all just the start of another hundreds of gaming hours long adventure deeper into the depths. It shows how much longevity and replayability this game truly has. Months of real life spent on shooting **** with my tears. Beating the entire labyrinth with Lost character on hard without being hit a single time, challenges like these were pure hardcore experience. I finally got the platinum and it was a hell of an adventure. PS4 version is smoother in framerate, richer in details and allows local co-op, but on the other hand pixel artstyle of this game and overall feeling is still better suited for Vita. Both versions are fantastic and I'm glad that the Nicalis fiasco with broken trophies and SONY EU not patching it for months was already resolved. Overall, Issac Rebirth is one of the best rogue-like games and triumph of game design and hardcore gameplay. 10/10 Expand

    Honestly, i absolutely love this game. i have poured countless hours into this and i am still unlocking trinkets and secrets. I never playedHonestly, i absolutely love this game. i have poured countless hours into this and i am still unlocking trinkets and secrets. I never played the flash version, but followed enough videos to know that i would love this game. It is absolutely worth the purchase. DLC is in the works and it will make this even more extensive. My only complaint would be that sometimes i feel it ways too heavily on luck, although when you get lucky, it feels soooo good. Expand

    This is the first Binding of Isaac game ive ever played. I took me several tries to beat the game for me but after you learnt what enemies doThis is the first Binding of Isaac game ive ever played. I took me several tries to beat the game for me but after you learnt what enemies do what i becomes really fun and addictive. Only bad part about the game i found was that i had to look on the interwebs what all those items do because there are alot of items, some good some bad (some really really good). You can easily loose a few hours in this game everyday. TL DR: Hard in the begining, Addictive and funny, A LOT of re playability for such a small game. 8/10 Expand
