The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth

I’d been looking forward to this coming out on PS4 and Vita – I’d played a bit of it on my laptop a while back – and my first impression was that I couldn’t stand what they did with the aesthetics on the console version. I’ve been told that they were going for some sort of 16-bit vibe, but to me, on my TV, it looked horrible, like it was just a low-res version of the game blown up. Thankfully, it didn’t bother me as much on the Vita, and I really do enjoy playing this game. Sure, the art in the game is grotesque, but it’s still addictive to go through the rooms/levels, hoping you’ll find some items that will make your journey easier. Definitely works well as a portable game, but now I do end up playing it on my PS4 as well, as an apĂ©ritif or digestif to other game sessions.
