1Up Review: Braid

Regret. Guilt. Romantic expectation. Braid doesn't just touch upon these things in passing; rather, its narrative and endlessly clever puzzle-platforming exist symbiotically, never taking the intelligence of its players for granted...or making any assumptions about what they may or may not understand. The game rules are simple -- move, jump, and control the flow of time in easily demonstrable ways -- but their applications are anything but. Likewise for the equally challenging story, which is built upon stimulating musings of life, love, and the search for another.

The story is too old to be commented.

Anything less would be a lie.

Dam I have to wait untill tomorro to DL the full version. Played the trial version and was very impressed and "puzzled", later on I started to figure out how innovative the game is and *low key* yet challaging the gameplay is, having to use brains and skills topping many retail games.

"Braid isn't afraid to make you feel like an idiot with its puzzles"

Very true I was getting worried I would never figure out how to complete World 2, When I finally figured bit by bit out, when the puzzle came to life in the physical world I knew this was a game with a style/innovation/freshness not seen in years.

This game is awesome :) It's a full package as far as style, story, and gameplay. Like green said the worlds have hard puzzle elements to them. The flow of time is no easy thing to master ^.- and the game has a good grasp on how to implement it
