About the game:

When Isaac's mother starts hearing the voice of God demanding a sacrifice be made to prove her faith, Isaac escapes into the basement facing droves of deranged enemies, lost brothers and sisters, his fears, and eventually his mother.

The Binding of Isaac is a randomly generated action RPG shooter with heavy Rogue-like elements. Following Isaac on his journey players will find bizarre treasures that change Isaac's form giving him super human abilities and enabling him to fight off droves of mysterious creatures, discover secrets and fight his way to safety.

Very nice. It seems well put together.

A good mix of deformity of man, and its willingness to follow a higher-powers call. As the story of Abraham and Issac, this story reflects what I say. Religion is a powerful thing, but we must always know the difference between right and wrong. The title of this game is even the biblical title of the story of Abraham and Issac.

'The Binding of Isaac'

It's true; look it up.

Religion done wrong can ravage one's being!

Psychologically captivating, disturbing, and I think that this shows how religion can be twisted by misguided people. As to some references confused recently, the sacrifice thing references Abraham being asked to sacrifice his son Isaac. This is clearly in the Bible, and is NOT exclusive to Catholicism! Plus, remember that God did not let Abraham kill Issac, but the mother in this story was twisted and probably going to. I am s

Well for me this game was both good and horrible. I'll start with the good. The good is that it has amazing gameplay features and a nice smooth feel to it. I also liked the feeling like I'm playing the Legend of Zelda. Lastly the art was really well done. And now the bad. What I didn't like about this game was the religion put in it. First off I am Christian and this game rather offended me in the beginning (of course I don't know what the rest of the game is like). For starters if your going to put religion of ANY sort then you need to do your research on them and keep them to what they really stand for. I really don't care what the religion is; it needs to keep what it tells. In the Christian religion God does NOT ask for sacrifices and never has. NOW DISCLUDING THE SACRIFICE THING, this sounds more like Catholism. I may be wrong so please don't jump me about that possibly being Catholism as I am admitting that I may be wrong. Now for the results (OTHER THAN THE RELIGION DEAL) this game is rather well done. Because of my own dissatisfactions though I gave this game a 2/5 and a 6/10 due to the artwork and gameplay being rather spectacular.

Damn

most ladies have the decency to leave their aborted fetuses in the dumpster. Isaac's mother seems to have just thrown them all in the basement and let them form their own Lord-of-the-flies society. Anyway great game, I'll probably buy it.

Also HOLY SHIT, voiced by MATTHIAS BOSSI? As in the Matthias Bossi from Sleepytime Gorilla Museum and Book of Knots and all that other cool shit? Woah, you shoulda got him to do the music too. (Mind you, dannyBstyle's score is still pretty damn rad. Matthias is just a fucking music God in my books.)

Demo does not do justice!!

Don't get me wrong. This is a good demo. But it'd be pretty damn hard to match the replay value, the fun, so forth of the full game! It is random, and some playthroughs will feel... cruel... but if you wanna cut your teeth on zelda meets roguelike meets these sick sick minds, then give it a try. Seriously, you won't regret it. I haven't. Own it already :)
