Critic Reviews for The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth

You should absolutely play Afterbirth. If you're already an Isaac diehard, or someone fresh to the genre, Afterbirth has hours upon hours of genuine joy in store for you. But you should know it will also have moments of soul-annihilating frustration. Maybe that's the price for flying so close to perfection.

There's a lot to love about The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth. It's a great expansion to a great base game. If you enjoyed Rebirth, you'll love Afterbirth.

Some of the additions in Afterbirth break whatever thematic cohesion might have existed more than what has come before. Laser-cyborg Isaac doesn't quite fit with my reading of the game but then, what the hell, maybe it's just a game about shit, blood and tears after all. And it's a fantastic example of the form.

Nicalis has shown up the majority of developers with Afterbirth, highlighting how overpriced and lacklustre some Season Passes can be. The Binding of Isaac fans will be overjoyed with this rather generous package, which is filled to the brim(stone) with new content that will keep you greedily returning for more.

Nicalis did us a solid and stuffed a disgusting amount of content in a game already bursting with disgusting content.

We now have a complete, perfect version of The Binding of Isaac, one which can sustain no further refinement.

The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth adds more replayability to an already endlessly replayable game. The wealth of new content will keep new and seasoned players alike coming back for more. While the fresh challenges are fun and Greed Mode adds a new spin, more new ways to play with the Isaac franchise would make the Afterbirth expansion top-notch.

If you liked Rebirth, you'd be doing yourself a major disservice by not treating yourself to Afterbirth.
