The DLC makes it a 1000x better, but also a lot harder! Wait until the summer sale and buy it for like a dollar.

It's recommended that you should beat mom a couple of times first before getting the DLC, because it'll make the game much harder. I didn't know that, so when i bought both last year, i played it for a couple of days and stopped. I picked it up again recently after seeing a streamer on twitch nearly break the game with the D6 and D20. It just so happens that the same streamer, Crumps, also hosts a racing league for the game. You can check it out at boilr.org

It's the difficulty of the game that makes it enjoyable. It can be harder with the DLC but it also can make the game a tad easier since the items that you may come across are more helpful in my opinion and experiance.

It's always something new really.

Picture a combination of Zelda/Smash TV/puzzle game. There is enough genuine challenge to scratch that itch, enough content to see new things 70+ hours in and if you like to artsy in your fartsy an overarching theme of the tragedy of holding on to youth at the expense of reality and the damage religion can do to self-image.

Plus, it has an item that summons a fat, smelly chick's bewbs.

Get the Dlc right away, no idea to wait and it doesnt get that much harder until you have beaten mom and moms heart a couple of times anyway.

The game is so popular right now because of the Youtube gamer: Northernlion. Well, to be the least, he is a factor of popularity of the game. There are also Binding of Isaac youtube(r): green9090 and ZenandCyrene. I bought mine because of Northernlion.. I did get the DLC right away but it's so hard at the start.. But you'll get used to it eventually..

The difficulty being enjoyable is very true, but for some it can still be quite a barrier of entry. The remake(Rebirth) actually will unlock things in this progression from vanilla to dlc content, but regardless of whether you get it now or later, don't ever give up. This game is very rewarding, so the more you play it, the better you will get, and the more content you will unlock. It's brilliantly designed and the randomization always keeps things fresh and interesting. As a last tip, try to focus more on the experience than the end goal of an achievement. Losses will be easier to take that way, and when you do lose, think things through. So have fun :) and if you need any more info, there's always the wiki: bindingofisaac.wikia.com
