  • Summary: Amazing game, it's also the most beautiful poetry, Jonathan Blow definetively made it, one of the best games ever. The unique stuff that I don't like about the game, is the lack of graphical options, I.E.

  • Summary: Braid is a 2-D puzzle platform game where time control is the key game mechanic. There are a few places where quick reflexes are required, but for the most part solving the puzzles just requires figuring out the right sequence of actions.

  • Summary: Braid is a good game but it's not the greatest game. Yes, the concept is innovative and yes, graphics are cute but that's all. GOAT game? Nah. Poetry? Nah. More like "Your Average Indie Platform Game".

  • Summary: If you don't know about this game you should. It isn't really even a game you should write a review of it should be mandatory to play this to call yourself a gamer. Braid is one of the touchstones of contemporary gaming and it is a perfect example of the immense amount of innovation games are...

  • Summary: Extremely hard and obtuse puzzles from a very early stage. Well designed game but just oversteps the fine line between challenging and irrirating for me.

  • Summary: The Good: Beautiful art direction, interesting story, out of this world time traveling mechanic, each world has a different ways to solve puzzles The Bad: Some puzzles may be a bit confusing, very short, the story isn't exactly clear Braid is one of those WTF games where you think you know what's...

  • Summary: Unique and interesting puzzle platformer. Six worlds, each offering a new challenge. Some of the puzzles are actually pretty difficult and can take a frustrating toll on your patience or more likely a trip to You Tube to figure them out. There is a story...kind of..

A unique and remarkable platforming experience

  • Summary: When you begin to play Braid, you are immediately grabbed by the gorgeous 2D graphics and the lush soundtrack. The opening title screen perfectly captures the dark, mysterious nature of the story you are about to unpack as you play through Braid's time (and mind) bending puzzles.

  • Summary: This is not a game. This is work. Sorry, not for me. Games are supposed to be fun; they are not supposed to imply we're stupid. I confess I did enjoy it for the first half hour or so. Then it just went down hill.

  • Summary: A fantastic 2D platform puzzle game that is quite unique. The puzzles are by far the best part of the game. Very challenging at times but not insurmountable. I found them to be intelligently thought through with some lateral and creative thinking required.
