The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Review

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is a remastered remake of the cult classic roguelike dungeon crawler, now with a new engine and a slew of new items, enemies, and experiences. It is, if anything, better than the original.

Taking place in a top-down perspective, the game’s dungeons are procedurally generated by a seed into a number of self-contained rooms. Each floor culminates in a boss battle.


The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is a roguelike action-RPG with heavy dungeon crawling elements. Players will accompany Isaac as he journeys through his mother’s basement, exploring its levels while attempting to defeat a variety of monsters and collect items.

The gameplay in The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth focuses on randomly generated, top-down dungeons that have permadeath and feature a multitude of challenging enemies and bosses. The player can save a play-through at any point, allowing for replayability.

There are also a large number of items that can be collected and used to modify Isaac’s appearance, attributes, and abilities. This can create powerful combinations that can help the player beat the game’s difficult dungeons.

The game also features a local two-player co-op mode, but unlike the original, this will not be available online. This is done to keep the development time as short as possible.


The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is a vastly superior experience to the original, thanks to updated graphics and a new art style that brings more detail and vibrancy to the twisted world of Isaac’s basement. The game also features a host of new enemies, items, and power-ups, making it a must-have for fans of the original and those looking for a fresh and challenging experience.

The gameplay is still as fast-paced and challenging as ever, requiring quick reflexes and strategic thinking to survive. It features randomly generated levels and items, as well as a variety of enemies that require different tactics to defeat.

A few new enemies have been added to the game, including Carrion Rider and Necromancer. These enemies move around the room erratically and charge at Isaac if they come within their range.


The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is a reimagining of the original game that combines randomly generated action RPG gameplay with heavy Rogue-like elements. Players must progress through the game’s dungeons, discovering bizarre treasures that give Isaac unique abilities and fighting off droves of mysterious enemies.

The first game was made in Flash, which gave the game a smooth and cartoony look; Rebirth ditches the flashy visuals and instead goes for a SNES-era pixelated style that’s more detailed than the original. It also uses a more advanced engine, overcoming a lot of the technical issues that plagued the original.

While some of the gameplay is a little clumsy, overall it’s a lot of fun and the game has a strong sense of humor. It’s not for everyone, but it’s a good choice for kids 9+ who are looking for a fun roguelike experience.


Edmund McMillen’s Bible-inspired roguelike dungeon crawler The Binding of Isaac has been reborn, an amazing experience that is better than the original, thanks to its massive number of new items, enemies, and experiences. It’s a deeply mysterious game that rewards determined players with hints and clues, as well as a unique ending (which I’ve only seen once).

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is based on the biblical story of the eponymous Isaac. After his mother hears the voice of God stating that her son is corrupted with sin, she removes all of Isaac’s worldly possessions and strips him naked, encasing him in a locked room and accepting a commission to kill him.

When he escapes to the basement, Isaac fights off nightmares, mutates into strange new forms, discovers memories of his own past and finally confronts his mother. Throughout the game, he uses his tears to defeat monsters and collect items that change his appearance, attributes, and abilities, potentially creating powerful combinations.
