    "The Binding of Isaac is such an addicting game! Best random dungeon game I've played to date. There are classes you can unlock, the maps are fun, and the overall story is interesting. I recommend this to people all the time!"

    "its like low graphics zelda type but really really brutal. The plot is simply amazing and full of fearful things."

    "The Binding of Isaac isn't exactly your average Roguelike, but it's definitely a welcome modern adaptation. Purists might disagree, but I think it takes Roguelikes to a whole new level."

    "This game didn't work well for me at all. The cutscene opened okay but then after that it just kept glitching out. It was slow to load and enemies would attack me before I had a chance to dodge them, which was really frustrating. Maybe there are some games that run well on PC's under 250MB but The Binding of Isaac is definitely not it. And the premise of the game is super strange too! "

    "This game has a strange plot. Isaac's mother is a deranged individual who hears voices of higher powers and threatens to sacrifice him to the gods. Fearing this, Isaac hides in his basement. While in the basement, he goes on an adventure where he runs into even more deranged enemies and kills them along the way. He also discovers a world of treasures which give him supernatural ability to kill his enemies and eventually make his way to safety."

    "You play as a son whose mother is crazy and wants to kill you or sacrifice you to the gods. To get away from your mother, you are forced to hide in the basement. While there, you encounter a range of enemies who are cartoonish yet very creepy. During the fight you can collect numerous items of treasure while advancing to meet the final boss."

    "Creepy and fun all the the same time! It's like a horror version of a dungeon crawler, but not as scary and heart attafck inducing"
  • Ruth Bradley

    "This game has a bizarre premise. This is fun though! It's a little weird that my biggest enemy is "mom" who wants to kill me. There are dark graphics. Dungeons, enemies, mystical powers. It's a cool change from the typical rogue game. "

    "This is a really creepy game based on quite the sick premise. I chose not to play it for ethical and personal reasons. Yes, I know it is "just a game," but I really don't want stuff like this in my head. I think I will stick with less of a creep factor in my games."

    "The Binding of Isaac is a really fun game. It is pretty old, so the graphics are nothing special, but I still enjoy playing it often. I highly recommend The Binding of Isaac if you just want a fun game and aren't concerned about up-to-date graphics."

    "This is one of my favorite games of all time. It is not necessarily Halloween-themed, but it is a dark game that would be perfect for any occasion, including Halloween. There are lots of different monsters you must fight off with your tears. All of the levels are randomly generated and every play-through is different due to the hundreds of different items you can pick up. Awesome game."

    "The Blinding of Isaac is one of the highest rated games on Steam and the reviews look great. I love the scary factor it has with the gruesome topic. It's definitely a game I wouldn't want to play in the dark. On Halloween though, all common sense goes out the window and I would be stoked to scare myself with The Blinding of Isaac. "

    "Seems interesting. There are a multitude of different games you have to play. They state you never play the same game twice. Would keep you intrigued and playing until you complete the whole game."

    "The game is a good deal of fun, if you can get past the punishing difficulty. As a PC game it's really good, and seems to play ok with a controller, but I really prefer the keyboard controls for this particular game. "

    "This is not a good solution. This doesn't address the problem and appears to be nothing more than an ad/spam for a game. A game that has nothing to do with helping this user solve his problem."

    "I know a really good game that is similar to Zelda. Check out The Binding of Isaac. You have to escape your deranged mother who wants to kill you. You face insane enemies, lost siblings, and more. It is really fun and I highly recommend it. "

    "The binding of isaac is a rogue like game where you start off with nothing and find items as you go. The coolest thing is the combination of items you pick up with synergize with the other items you have in fun ways, making each run unique."

    "I really like most Zelda games. I use emulators on my computer to play. I recently found The Binding of Isaac. The game was OK. The game play was like Zelda but not as polished. I think it has potential."

    "I love top-down shooter games and wanted to find a good one on Steam. I found The Binding of Isaac. This game is so awesome. It's where you play as a guy named Isaac and have to escape your nutty mother who wants to sacrifice you. It's really immersive and addicting. I've played it for hours at a time. The graphics are simple, but that's fine since the game is so fun. I highly recommend this game to all gamers. Check it out now!"

    "The Binding of Isaac is a creepy, creepy game that'll have you hooked from beginning to end. The storyline is intense, and I definitely wouldn't recommend it for younger players, but if you're in the mood for some horror action this is perfect."

    "This is a good solution for dungeon crawler games. I myself find this game to be quite good. One thing to note and would add to the solution would be that the game has a very high replay-ability. It is designed to replay. "

    "I'd been looking for a fun PC game for a while, and The Binding of Isaac, while super simple, is a really fun game. Games don't have to be complicated to be enjoyable! I found the gameplay and the randomly-generated dungeons to be a fun distraction."

    "Holy Freudian role play! This game scared the $%*t out of me in a good way. It's like a living nightmare - part Psycho part psychotherapy. Not your typical game but if you like your horror with a dose of catharsis this is the game for you. "

    "This game may very well consume your life. The replay value on Isaac is ridiculous. You can easily put in thousands of hours and still be finding new things. Isaac is a must-play for fans of top-down shooters or rogue-lites. Fair warning though, Isaac is hard. Especially before you learn what items do what, you will probably have a hard time winning, but that's just part of the beauty of the game. Seeing something new, picking it up, seeing how it just changed the game for you and figuring out how to adapt to your ability."

    "This game is definitely an acquired taste. It's punishingly difficult, it's gross, it's weird but for some people, it will be nothing that they have ever played before. It's for these reasons that everyone should still try it out at least once."

    "This is a good solution. The Binding of Issac looks like captivating game. This game randomly generates it content so you never play the same game twice. This game has a crazy story line and plot. "
