    Epic...

    Comparing this game to Super Mario Bros. (which a lot of people seem to be doing) is like comparing Heath Ledger's performance as the Joker to Jack Nicholson's performance as the Joker. Both performances are very unique ... Read Full Review

    Easily the most thought-provoking XBLA tile to date.

    Braid is an interesting game. On the surface, you have a typical 2D platformer that borrows almost too heavily from the classic Super Mario games, but when you dig deeper into the game's story and mechanics, Braid manage... Read Full Review

    Mario + Prince of Persia = meh

    The art style is nice, though it seems broken when it comes to the main character. The audio is unobtrusive but well done generally. The story is refreshingly different but ultimately the Undergraduate English Major eq... Read Full Review

    Honestly I don't see the big dea

    Honestly I don't see the big deal about this game. Graphics and music even though they are quite beautiful (in this game) do not make a game. I made the mistake of buying this game first instead of playing the demo, a... Read Full Review

    A work of art with brains.Braid has jumped the 2D Platformer genre into the next generation.

    A truly remarkable game with some of the most clever puzzles ever designed.

    Braid is basically the definition of the word "innovation". The game takes basic Super Mario Bros. platforming mechanics and combines them with enjoyable and absolutely brilliant time-based puzzles. GRAPHICS: Braid ... Read Full Review

    I was reluctantly blown away.

    This game caught me by surprise. I noticed its high rating on this site, hadn't heard of it until then, looked around and saw nothing but good things. Then I watched the videos... they really looked "meh." Honestly I ... Read Full Review

    Braid is a lush, memorable title that will easily be remembered.

    Braid was released on Xbox LIVE Arcade and what it does has been executed so great. The gameplay, the concepts, the music and the story are all at high standards. Wait? This is an Xbox LIVE Arcade title, right? We need m... Read Full Review

    You can't go wrong for fifteen bucks.

    Maybe I'm old but I think this game is awesome for fifteen bucks. Why are all the other games so damn expensive? Perhaps we're getting ripped off paying fifty to sixty dollars for games that cost thirty on the PC. Thi... Read Full Review

    Why is it that the hero must always win?

    I have finished Braid... Or have I just begun? Braid is a XBLA game, but it goes a lot deeper than just that. Braid is a story. Braid is an artistic masterpiece. Braid is _ love. The experience takes players upon t... Read Full Review
