If you want to play a great rogue-like then you’re not gonna get much better than this. The binding of isaac rebirth is a great sequel, taking all the good elements from the first game all the while adding even more awesome goodies to the experience. If you’re unfamiliar with the game and it’s unique story and choice of setting then you might be surprised to see what’s awaiting you. It’s all about the kid isaac that’s been blessed with a crazy mom as well as being forced down into his basement where he has to fight off monsters with his tears as his only weapon. You then go from room to room as you become stronger while the monsters become more fierce and deadly. It’s a bunch of fun and it’s got the many sales it has for a good reason.
There is many aspects to why The binding of isaac is such a great roguelike but I would say it lies in its overall quality. It manages to make all the aspects of the game really awesome, cool and interesting all the while making it a smooth and clean experience. All the item combinations to levels to the monsters are really cool and unique which makes them really fun to interact with. and all of this just keeps adding up making it a really fun and good game. and this is of course only focusing on the gameplay. There is also a really fun and weird story to go through that shapes the game in such a nice way making it a blast to play. Great game and highly recommended.
