9 / 10.0

The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ adds more of what we loved about the original and keeps the formula fresh. It's a tough game, but one that balances challenge with a refreshing feeling of the unexpected. The unpredictable items and varied enemies make it one of the most wacky and replayable games I've ever experienced.

As for me, I know I’ll be returning to this for a long time to come. I still occasionally boot up the original Flash game and I’ve put more hours into Rebirth between the PC version and the PS4 version than I’m proud to admit. The finale of the whole saga may not be so cut and dry, but Isaac has never had an easy life. The poor kid is still crying, six years after his introduction to the world.

The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ is a perfect match for the new Nintendo Switch. Is easy to grasp and its pace suits perfectly the Switch portability. With hundreds of weapones, enemies, mysteries and rooms to explore... you got plenty to sink teeth into.
