Jonathan Blow (the creator) impresses in this puzzle masterpiece which revolves around time manipulation to collect puzzle pieces. Some of the challenges are quite difficult and require a fairly high degree of problem solving ability and creativity. This game really forces you to think hard at times and the analytical and problem solving skills are geared more toward a mature, intellectually developed audience (too difficult for young kids).

While I respect others' opinions, I discount the negative reviews that complained that you have to think too much in playing this game because I found the challenges to be the best part. If you want a mindless game this is the wrong genre. If you get stuck there are always walk-throughs on YouTube. It's also interesting to note that there's not always one unique solution to each problem.

This game boasts a vague but intriguing story line. Very impressive for an indy game.

"Braid is a platform game in a painterly style that uses time manipulation to solve puzzles."

Move, climb, jump, and time-travel. The art is beautiful, and with the soundtrack, pulls you into fantasy world were everything is simple and beautiful and nothing is what it seems.

As you travel through more and more doors you must use some skill and a lot of wits to capture puzzle pieces. With the tenacity of a scientist you try new approaches, and repeat failures a hundred times until the truth unravels for you.

Parallel to your efforts, the story of Tim and the Princess unfolds, where Tim asks questions we all ask, and tries to achieve what we all want: understanding.

But so much is Uncertain. So much is subjective.

Braid is all about perspective, assumptions, and breaking the rules of both.

This game is amazing, beautiful, and emotional. Buy it, and play the demo while it's in the mail.

This game is loaded with mind-bending, rip-your-hair-out phenomenal puzzles, but you never get completely stuck, since you can simply walk from one end of a level to another and come back to try again at any time. Beautiful game art and music complete the atmosphere.

One of the few games where I actually felt smarter after playing it. Highly, highly recommended.

Ok, this game's been out for a while now. I just purchased it based on the affordable price and free shipping. I wish I'd played this sooner. First off, the graphics in this game are beautiful. It's a side scroller with parallax scrolling similar to some of the "old school" video games. In fact, the graphics in this game remind me of an upgraded Amiga game. It seems inspired by the old Monty Python games for the Amiga - except with much better graphics and puzzles.

Some say this game is not "long" enough. To me, it seems like a very challenging puzzle game. Those who say it's not long enough, probably used a little online "help" to play through the game. Do yourself a favor and play through without cheating. From what I've seen of the game so far, it's clever, witty, creative, and challenging.

The watercolor effects are also very cool. The game may be a little dated but you'd never guess based on the graphics and game play. I'm very happy with this purchase! Thanks Amazon.com!

First off, this is a review for the PS3 version of the game, which I bought for $3.75 after the Great PSN Crash of '011, when I had my free month of PlayStation Plus, and there was a tremendous discount for the game during that time. I heard it was interesting, so I dove in.

The tutorial (one screen) does not even mention the central aspect of the game itself, which is time manipulation. You can rewind time, and effectively never die. Most people will discover this after they get hit by an enemy or fall in a pit and the game just freezes. Mash buttons until something happens? Exactly!

What's interesting about this game is that you can see almost every level by walking through it; no need to pick up the puzzle pieces in the levels if you don't want to. Of course, this can be accomplished in about 15 minutes or less (taking into account two straightforward, nearly identical boss battles). Unfortunately, you won't be able to unlock the last level, and will wonder if you wasted your penny (what this game is going for on PC these days, apparently).

What makes this game brilliant, as I alluded to with my review title, is what happens when you try to collect all of the puzzle pieces. You begin to realize that not only did the game leave out the time manipulation concept in the tutorial, they left out everything about how the worlds work in general. Trust me, though, even if it seems that you can't get that puzzle piece in plain sight, you can; you just have to think WAY outside the box, in many cases.

The laws governing time change from world to world, also, so the developers may throw what appear to be identical levels at you in different worlds, but since time is different, so is the challenge.

Like many of the "indie" games that have released in recent years for PC and console, Braid is a difficult game to describe to someone who has not experienced it for themselves. If forced to categorize it, puzzle-platformer would be the genre that most closely describes it, but Braid is so much more than that. Braid is an experience. It not only stretches your mind to the point that you will actually feel yourself get a little smarter as you play it, but it also addresses very deep human issues like obsession, regret, and the desire to fix the wrongs we've done throughout our lives.

In the beginning of the game, your girlfriend is kidnapped and you have to rescue her. From that moment, every expectation you've ever had of a video game gets thrown out the window. Braid does this starting with an absolutely brilliant mechanic that allows the gamer to reverse time. You got killed in your game? No you didn't. Just hit the time reverse button, and undo your mistake. As you move through the levels of the game, different layers based on this mechanic are laid across the game worlds. Certain objects/areas/enemies become immune to time manipulation. Walking in one way will reverse time while walking the other way moves it forward. A doppelganger of yourself will continue to move forward through time while you reverse it. These are just a few examples of the way the game will challenge the player into using these mechanics to solve a series of mind-bending puzzles that will make you think outside the box as never before in a video game. It can be extremely challenging at times, but solving these puzzles will give you a feeling of satisfaction that few other games will. It challenges your mind the way Dark Souls challenges your skill.
