Review: Binding of Isaac: Rebirth (PS4/Vita)

Mama's gonna put all of her fears into you

Indie games have been around for a lot longer than some gamers believe. The majority of them started as basic flash games that evolved into something of a cult.  The Binding of Isaac was one of them. If you speak to any one who has played this title you will get one of two responses - "I hated this game after I died once" or "I lost a lot of my life to this game". However you look at it, you cannot deny that is has a firm place in the Indie Hall of Fame. For those who love what it offers will find countless hours of gameplay to enjoy but this is not a game that everyone will love. The majority of games are like this but there might be something in them that may appeal to the nah sayers. Isaac on the other hand is not like this and because of this I find it odd that it has been released on the PS4. Let me explain;
