Can frustrate at times ; Story can be confusing

Braid

 

Braid is unique in many respects - it's a platformer with a story, death isn't permanent, and it is full of clever time manipulation puzzles that don't repeat. To be certain, later puzzles will incorporate things learned in previous head-scratchers,...

Beautifully executed gaming brilliance.

Clever, inventive puzzles, gorgeous visuals, lovely music, bittersweet story

It had to end

With a gaming landscape populated by so many sequels and other examples of unoriginality it would be easy to see the praise of Braid as coming from the desire to play something different, and not as a result of the game's merits, however, independent...

Braid Game Review - Xbox 360

 

Getting to the puzzle pieces themselves is very much the meat of Braid, as you must use the simple tools at your disposal to collect the 12 puzzle pieces in each world to piece together a puzzle and complete the world. That's very much easier said than...

You're into supporting these indie or artsy-fartsy games that are all about the experience

You can’t get past the platforming bits of the game or you're not much for intense thinking in your games

When it comes down to it, Braid’s very much one of those artsy games with an impactful story that can be something for people to talk about for a long time, which certainly lasts more than the game requires to beat it. The game can take maybe four...

A Game of the Year candidate, fo sho

Braid is the only true gaming classic on XBLA. It's a masterpiece--an "art" game and a fun-to-play puzzle/platformer. There aren't enough nice things to say about it.

First off if you like games don't bother to read the rest of the review, just go and buy Braid. It is that simple because Braid is one of those instant classic titles that are so amazing we will be talking about how great it plays how it defined an...

Graphics and Audio are so fantastic ; Gameplay changes with each world make for a great game ; Long for a Arcade title ; Story is excellent ; Time controls and overall gameplay controls are well done ; Replay value with speed run, etc

Thinking… Thinking… Nope can't think of anything wrong with the title

Braid is such a unique title placing it firmly in one single genre would be difficult, yes it is a platformer, but it is so much more then your typical platformer and with it's games fantastic story and gameplay you could put it in the adventure...
