The Binding of Isaac: Repentance is an incredible achievement that goes beyond just being a DLC expansion. This is another load of thread connecting yet more pieces to the potential of the already brilliant base game. With all of these plates spinning, it's impossible to know how well a run is going to go at any given time, but it remains incredibly fun trying to figure that out.
While not too much has changed, everything we love about Isaac has been expanded on. With a massively improved multiplayer mode, new bosses, items, paths and challenges, Isaac is at his tearful best. The PS5 version is the best console version of Isaac and contains everything ever made, and while it may be pricey, you get a hell-load of content for your money. If it sucks you in - and it probably will - you'll be treated to one of the best roguelikes ever made.
The Binding of Isaac: Repentance is the biggest addition of varied and quality content that the title has received since the arrival of its first expansion. It means many more hours of play and an introductory point as good as any other for first-timers in the title, but if on any occasion you have given this roguelike a chance and its proposal has not convinced you, this expansion will hardly make you change your mind.
