The Binding of Isaac - Review!
So, late last year - around the time of that Mayan calendar explosion thing - I’m looking though the ever-tempting Steam sale and catch sight of ‘The Binding of Isaac going for a mere £1.99. I sort of remembered seeing some of this game upon its release, but for some reason my 2011-self was all “This probably isn’t for me”, despite the fact that
- The game was going for like, 3 shillings or some shit, and
- The game was co-created by one of the dudes responsible for Super Meat Boy, which was super great…boy. (sorry)
Anyways, my poor decision making aside, I finally bought the game as well as £2 of DLC, because it adds more stuff and stuff = Fun! And fortunately, the game ended up being a much deeper and more surprising experience than I could have hoped for.
Kick back and watch an ageing videogame mascot beat up a fat man in a large space robot / watch your childhood nostalgia get turned into an elaborate Maya cutscene
Also the boss theme remix is pretty serious
classic N64 beats, son
