Braid Review

Softpedia
22 October 2009
  • Conclusion: I liked Braid, but the game made me feel uneasy. It has the right atmosphere and the right gameplay, but it somehow feels wrong. Maybe this is the way we are supposed to feel after the finale, and if so, the creator has hit the mark.
  • Pros: Besides the ability to manipulate time, the first thing that jumps out is the art direction, and it’s quite obvious that a lot of thought has been put into it. The graphics and the entire atmosphere of Braid make the game feel unique and memorable.
  • Cons: For a game developed by a single man, I found almost nothing wrong with it. The only two “problems,” although this is a harsh word, are related to gameplay. The first issue is related to the general difficulty of the game. Even if Jonathan Blow admitted that some of the puzzles would have been im...

If I Could Turn Back Time

  • Excerpt: Braid is a mysterious beast indeed. Imagine if Arthur C. Clarke and Stephen Hawking decided to get together over a few shandies and remake Super Mario World. Their booze-fuelled creation would probably end up something like this 2D platformer by independent developer Jonathan Blow.
  • Pros: Original gameplay, Hard puzzles skippable, Simple controls
  • Cons: 'Story' is pointless, Can be too abstract

  • Excerpt: Logických her na PC není zas až tolik. Nyní máme štěstí, že se na PC dostala hra původně pro Xboxovou distribuci XBLA. Máme tu perfektní logickou hříčku Braid.

  • Conclusion: Pastelowy świat, mężczyzna (chłopiec?) w garniturze, przy którym brnący w stronę Mordoru Frodo mógłby się poczuć niczym Guliwer w trakcie swoich podróży i piękny pastelowy świat przedstawiony z boku.

  • Summary: Пожалуй, основной недостаток Braid — небольшая продолжительность. Попав в своеобразный ритм, проносишься сквозь игру за один-два вечера. Жаль, что нельзя отмотать их назад и начать заново. Студия Magnatune выпустила саундтрек Braid отдельным диском.
