Summary: One of the greatest indie puzzle games (let alone, puzzles games in general) that I've ever played! The mechanics of each level changes, and you're always able to go back in time when either avoiding death and/or solving puzzles (kinda like Prince of Persia, but the gameplay is even more dependent on this element). Great stylish graphics on top of all that, too. BUY IT!
Summary: The puzzles are difficult and unique. The game play is very interesting. The graphics are beautiful (though simple). The double meanings behind everything is what makes the game special. I love this game, and am unhappy only that it ended. Playing this game was a great and meaningful experience. Braid is the only game I know that can be described that way.
Goombas be mating with some lions, it's Puzzle Time!

Summary: In Braid, you play as Tim, a man on a quest to save the princess. Don’t be fooled by the simplistic set-up and familiar trappings of the platforming genre. While Braid clearly pays homage to Mario with enemies that look like Goombas mated with lions, the game is more about puzzle solving than precision based platforming.
Summary: Although the game has a lovely aesthetic, the real appeal is the 'solve the puzzle' aspect. If you're looking for an action game, you'll be disappointed. But if you're looking to challenge you creative problem solving, Braid is very good bet.
Summary: Good game. Although when you buy it, it should come with a bottle of pills to cure the headache the game will give you. some levels i felt were a little to hard. but boy when i finished the last level, it was a major accomplishment. The story line is a good one to, i wasn't in the least little bit expecting it to turn out like it was!
Summary: When I first ordered this product, I was expecting to receive a disc that allows me to undo mistakes in REAL life. THIS IS NOT WHAT THE DISC DOES. I guess I didn't read the description very carefully, because what I got was a GAME. The game is a brilliant and extremely fun game, and I was pleasantly surprised when I first played it, however if you know of a device that grants the ability to undo mistakes in real life, please let me know about it. Thank you.

Summary: The graphics are good, but the levels are 99% bottomless pits with a bunch of stupid crap or floating things to jump on which get tiring very quickly. The time travel feature sucks and sometimes you will beat endless pit levels, get tons of glitches only to find that it didn't save and you have to start over. It only saves if you beat an entire world or you manually do it which is total bs. The time travel is the worst I have ever seen in any game ever.
Summary: The puzzles in this game were sometimes quite challenging, which I REALLY LIKE! My daughter and I would take turns trying to figure out how to do them. I love that you have to figure out when in time an event has to happen for you to get the result you need. But frankly, I would have preferred the game if the story had been less bizarre. The main character is a bit of a creep, and that takes away from the overall enjoyment of the game.
Summary: I don't know if this is coding side or disk side but the game stops working when you reach the lady at the end level. Hopefully that doesn't ruin it for you. I never found a way past.... The game itself is interesting but rather boring. It's lack of levels is only made up by the unique abilities and hard as heck levels. Seriously I have to look up videos to pass like 10 of the levels.

Summary: This is a brilliantly original game. It's hard, though, and that's the point. A little manual dexterity is required, but the cruxes of every level are puzzles that must be solved using spatial-temporal reasoning. The mindlessness that has come to define video games is absent here; two different people might take minutes or hours to figure out a given level, depending on their aptitudes.
