The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is the ultimate of remakes with an all-new highly efficient game engine (expect 60fps on most PCs), all-new hand-drawn pixel style artwork, highly polished visual effects, all-new soundtrack and audio by the the sexy Ridiculon duo Matthias Bossi + Jon Evans. Oh yeah, and hundreds upon hundreds of designs, redesigns and re-tuned enhancements by series creator, Edmund McMillen. Did we mention the poop?.
The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is also available on PS4.

The time I’ve spent with Binding of Isaac: Rebirth has been non-stop fun and surprises, with just a tad too much frustration when I lose a rare item.
Crazier, funnier and bigger. Rebirth is a proper rebuilt of one of the most brilliant games we've enjoyed lately. There are a handful of new features and probably even more content than we could've asked for, even though die-hard fans might consider rebuying a game that's very much the same, but widely expanded.
The Binding of Isaac is the reference for the rogue-like genre - even if you already know the "old" Isaac inside out.
The excellent rogue-like horror came back to life with a new engine and lots of changes. Thanks to that, the game is a little more accessible, but still you will not get anything for free. Gameplay is great, Isaac’s torture still hurts and a joy of any tiny success will please you greatly. The Binding of Isaac is recommended by eight out of ten child psychiatrists.
It introduces a lot of new content but other than that is worth than the original game in almost every aspect. [01/2015, p.73]
