Thumbs up The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth

Current fave game is The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth

Sooo good. It's a roguelike randomly generated dungeon game. Wookie got me into it as I noticed he played it on Steam and that piqued my interest and I then picked it up when it went on sale (which it does regularly). Vast amount of depth and enormous replay value. I know the phrase 'just one more turn' is generally a Civ phrase but that phrase has never been more apt than at the moment for me with this game. And it's not some triple-A title, it's a 300meg install indie game.

If you like Zelda you would like it. 16-bit SNES graphics are wonderful and huge amount of variety of characters, items, bosses, etc, etc.

Initial learning curve is steep but after a few hours you start to get the hang of it. Can't quite explain why it's so good and addictive - it just is. You will need to refer to the wiki/s fairly often to understand the huge number of objects, cards, etc.

Good review on Destructoid.

Very dark storyline that may not suit all, however

9.5/10

This is one of those games I own on Steam that I have never had a chance to play. Guess I need to...

@Mouser you've love it when you get into it. Just ask Wookie or me!

Also, it's currently 33% off on Steam this weekend.

As Steam sales go that's not a huge discount but I'm up to 130 hours played in the last few months which isn't bad going for £7.36/$10.
