    This a rather short, but a very enjoyable game, which has a couple of worlds with different challenges and obstacles on each level. The object of the game is to collect the puzzle pieces scattered thr...

    Braid nailed the indie world with it's incredible and revolutionary gameplay and mind boggling story.

    Braid is a game that incorporates the 'prince of persia-like' time controlling effect. Only thing is that, you can use it as many times as you want and it is the key on to solving some of the puzzles....

    Braid is a cleverly crafted puzzle and platforming game, but is a bit too light on content.

    Rated on July 26, 2012 by BigStik

    Braid is a very unique game. Instead of being another run-of-the-mill platformer, the game focuses less on the jumping and enemy-stomping and more on pure logic puzzles. However, this essentially mean...

    Braid is much more than it appears to be. Yet in the end, it's an experience you won't forget.

    When was the last time a simple platforming game made you think? How often does a story break traditional barriers--sometimes shattering boundaries nobody knew even existed? No matter how you look at...

    Yes, Yes it is

    What more can be said about Braid, but that it is absolutely the best game made that solved the programmer's nightmare of time manipulation? I come back to this game about every 6 months, and blow ...

    It's barely mediocre, only because of the music and graphics

    All flash, no substance actually sums up how i do feel about this game. I suppose this will upset some of the in-braided fans, but i will argue, that this game is actually quite in a surplus of simila...

    More than meets the eye!!!!

    Rated on December 30, 2009 by Trident85

    I must admit that I became lazy with this game. I purchased it when it came out & slowly stopped playing it due to the heavy releases of other phenomenal titles that were released this past year. Anyw...

    Braid is an excellent puzzle game that not only challenges your brain, but has a lot of emotion.

    Rated on May 13, 2013 by Diamonte3991

    Braid was one of the games that came out and seemed to blow people away. After seeing reviews for this game, I simply had to play it. Braid is the story about the atomic bomb and how it destroyed ...
