The Binding of Isaac

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: If I weren't already so fond of game jams -- and rapid prototyping in general -- The Binding of Isaac likely would have pushed me into such fandom. It began life as a week-long project between Team Meat's Edmund McMillen and Florian Himsl, eventually growing to what it is now, a twisted roguelike...

The Binding of Isaac review

GamesRadar
24 June 2012
  • Excerpt: It’s exceedingly rare for a five dollar downloadable game to engender real creepiness, but the intro sequence to The Binding of Isaac delivers plenty of disturbia. An update of the biblical parable (in which God demands the sacrifice of Abraham’s son Isaac), the game tells the story of a woman...
  • Pros: Throwback combat, Fast-paced adventuring, Superb sound design
  • Cons: Game-killing glitches, Uneven atmosphere, Lack of gamepad support

The Binding of Isaac DLC

BioGamer Girl
28 May 2012
  • Excerpt: The Binding of Isaac released in September of last year and brought PC gamers one of the best independent titles of the entire year. For only $5, the game was more that a bargain for gamers, and added another great, if totally strange, title to the growing list of incredibly addictive and...

The Binding of Isaac

Game Boyz
29 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Remember Super Meat Boy and Gish? Both were, in their own way, slightly creepy games with disturbing cartoon visuals. Well, both games were at least partly designed by Edmund McMillen, and The Binding of Isaac is what happens when Ed really lets go.

The Binding of Isaac Review

Softpedia
19 March 2012
  • Conclusion: The Binding of Isaac is the conclusive proof that quality gaming is not all about graphics or who has the best console. It’s a game designed by gamers, for gamers, filling a void that was left by the apathy of the gaming industry of the last decade that churns out title after title with little to no...
  • Pros: Although the graphics are not much to look at, the character only moves in four directions and the controls scheme is tiresome, at best, but the overall feeling of the game and the sheer number of combinations that can result from mixing intelligent level design and dozens of items, makes The Bin...
  • Cons: There is only one major problem. The game is designed in flash and there's no gamepad support, which seems to be the best control method for this game. As the players have only one way to control the character, with the WASD keys, and fire with the arrows keys (the mouse can also be used to fire ...

  • Conclusion: "Wow. Is that thing that's currently squirting blood at me what I think it is?"
  • Pros: Nothing better than wearing your mother's clothes while fighting monsters with laser tears alongside your floating stillborn brother.
  • Cons: Completely misjudging an enemy's projectile can really stick it to you.
