    The final chapter of the Isaac series has arrived, and what a wacky, bare-buns ride it's been. [Issue #27 – May/June 2017, p. 69]

    The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ is my favourite version of the game having played it across literally everything it has released on.

    The Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+ on Switch isn't just a brilliant port - it's arguably the best way to enjoy a modern roguelike classic.

    I think the game is supremely enjoyable, but it’s not for everybody. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to travel through Mom’s Scarred Womb and destroy what appears to be a giant fetus before taking on Satan. Toodles!

    Too weird and repellent for a mainstream audience, too brilliant for any serious gamer to ignore, The Binding of Isaac has found a surprisingly natural home on Switch. It’s ideal for short bursts and longer sessions of handheld play, and the sort of title that only gets richer and more interesting the more hours and effort you put in. Edward McMillen’s cult classic isn’t for everyone, but if it’s for you there’s no better way to play it.

    The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ is the most updated console version and features two-player co-op. With both Joy-Con, there is a lot of game here to play with someone friendly. With over 10 endings and a seemingly endless amount of unlockable content/features, expect to get far beyond 100 hours logged in. For its price, The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ pretty much has it all and more thanks to the Switch hardware. For some it may become a grind, and others may never be able to get past Edmund McMillen's wonderful sense of humour. Those who get beyond those quibbles will have one of the most addictive and creative indie games in their pockets and on their TV.

    The points that makes the game special are the endless ways to reinvent it and the many forms to take a walk on your own path of chaos. This Nintendo Switch Version is a good way to upgrade "the Binding of Isaac Experience" which brought us Edmund Mcmillen 6 years ago. Perfect for those who never played it or who just simply want to have fun anywhere.

The pre-order version or first 2,000+ copies have an instruction booklet, stickers, and a reversible box sleeve/artwork. The game is amazing fun and with all the random dungeons, will provide hundreds of hours of gameplay. Having this on a cartridge (which is how I purchased) helps save space on the internal memory. The expansions are simply more of the original and add quantity to the experience. As an indie game it feels big budget. With Best Buy's GCU discount, I got it for $31+tax. Well worth it for a boxed version with cartridge and limited edition instruction manual. Reminds me of gaming in the early 90s. Expand

You have to be alert & ready for anything. Random enemies in every room make for tense gameplay. The controls are tight and the replay value is astronomically high. Experimenting with all the myriad item & weapon combinations is a blast. Check it out. Expand

    Endless fun!!! So many items and secrets to discover. I only wish that there were more characters, but this is a very small complaint.
