A charming platformer that's both fun and challenging

User Rating: 9 | Braid X360
Braid is simply an amazing platformer that shows just how modern day 2d sidescrollers should be done.It starts with a simple story that eventually has a much greater meaning at the end. As is the new norm with me, i'll list the pros, cons, and shades of gray.

Pro:
- Breathtaking musical score
- Amazing art style
- Pays homage to Mario
- An interesting take on an old story
- Challenging puzzles
- Innovative spin on the time mechanic on each world


Cons:
- A bit short
- Price tag is higher than most arcade games

Shades of Gray:
- None

I really enjoyed this game and for me its definitely greater than the sum of its parts. For those complaining its too much like mario, lets be realistic here. It has piranha plants, the saying "the princess is in another castle, and a level called jumpman." But should paying homage to a classic game franchise really a reason to hate this game? So do yourself a favor and check this one out, i guarantee you wont be disappointed.
