    One of the best games I have played this year.

    Braid is hard. Let's get it out there and if you don't like thinking while you play, this game isn't for you. That being said; if you like a challenge, Braid is a great game. This is probably one of the more difficult ga... Read Full Review

    An epic story and challenging puzzles make this game a must-play.

    Braid is a Mario-like XBLA game that puts a new twist on the classic 2D platformer with the unique idea of using time as a core mechanic of gameplay. Although the puzzles are hard, the rewind ability in the game allows t... Read Full Review

    This game should be experienced by any adult that has ever been unfulfilled with typical pop culture friendly stories

    I'm not going to go into the details of this game, as you can read all the other reviews on here to get that. What I will say is that Braid is a refreshing change from the norm. It can and will change your perspective ... Read Full Review

    The best experience on Xbox Live Arcade right now...

    This game has as much replayability as a little classic you may know by the name of Mario Bros, spliced with another little gem you may know of going by the name of Portal. How anyone can dislike this game is beyond me, ... Read Full Review

    An intuitive game with brilliant gameplay.

    Okay, a lot of people say that this is a Mario rip off. Yes, the jumping and platforming and the princess finding and the enemies may be like the ones from Mario but that doesn't make it like Mario, the game is completel... Read Full Review

    Great game with some interesting mechanics and breathtaking art direction, but...

    A perfect combination of Art, Mind, and Tragedy.

    Braid should be an acronym: Beautifully Rendered Artistic Innovative Design. The quickest way to describe Braid is Art. The game is Art. I did not expect to care about a Mario-like platformer, especially one with he... Read Full Review
