The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth
Top Critic Average
The creepy-cute dungeons of The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth are amazingly different and challenging every time.
An awful childhood gets a surprisingly arcadey revisit in this blistering action roguelike.
More weirdness, more blasphemy, and more great action makes this remake of The Binding of Isaac spectacularly absorbing.
Rebirth is an incredible experience that can't be missed. Descend into the basement, lock the trapdoor behind you, and don't look back.
As gory and goofy as The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth may seem to be on its surface, beating underneath it all is its hero's noble, sincere little heart.
Given it's much broader of content than the original and still packed with surprises I've yet to uncover, let alone master, Rebirth very much lives up to its name. I do feel it makes some stylistic misfires that let the side down, but perhaps that doesn't matter. Just one more go. Damned forever.
The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is an accomplished update to a fantastic game, an experience as charming as it is sinister.
In the end, The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is 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 one of the better games I have played this year, maybe of all time.
The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is a fast-paced and fun twin-stick shooter. Its strengths lie in its tight gameplay, and the almost infinite replayability created by its endlessly inventive special abilities. Similarly, its darkly humorous story and visuals are nothing if not memorable. However, if you aren't prepared to truck with this deranged premise, then you probably won't enjoy your time in the basement.
The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth picks up on the legacy of The Binding of Isaac and improves on the original on its technical and content fronts to create a varied, interesting and challenging adventure game. Inspiration from the original Legend of Zelda is visible on Rebirth's level design but it won't just be Zelda fans who will appreciate this new chapter in the Binding of Isaac series. A new landmark in the growing sector of independent game designers.
