Braid remains a beautiful and brilliantly demanding game that barely contains its dense population of ideas, taking its place alongside Geometry Wars and Pac-Man Championship Edition as one of the finest original titles available on Live Arcade.
Fantastic score. :)
It's very original, sets it apart from the clones.
The game IMO was well worth the price they asked for it. I would say download the demo atleast, this game is very unique. It just has the special feeling from start to finish.
...Except for the blatant Mario/Donkey Kong ripoffs. I still can't believe they actually used the venus flytrap in the green sewer pipe...just pathetic. And don't tell me it's an "homage"...I'm sure the guys who made Limbo of the Lost said the same thing. :o
You clearly missed the point of the whole game. Poor you. :(
its a great game regardless, anywas if you played it you would see that its made up of a bunch of things that made games like Mario and others, great games. It just puts its own twist on the whole thing. Its a great game. Sorry you didn't like it. Edit: @Superfragilistic, agreed dude.
For sure this game is well made and a 9 is a perfect fit for it :)
this game is not getting the attention it deserves ..yet ..the scores are higher than almost every game released this year
no way this game gets a 9 its at LEASED a 10!! seriously, this game is just a good as portal or better. all ive played is the demo and i was getting really disoriented while doing some of the levels cause of the time traveling lol. specialy on world 3.
Better than 99.9% on ps3 and thats a "FACT"
nice game but pixeljunk eden is much better.
Wrong on multiple levels, man. Eden is nowhere near as good as this game. Eden has no chance of ever being as good as this game. Eden could have 20 patches applied to it and it still wouldn't be as good as this game. Braid is the real deal!
LMFAO that POS. thats the lamest game ever, seriously no innovation at all. its just a lame spiderman ripoff with plants instead of buildings.
Braid is not pixeljunk, it's pixelart.
One of the best independent games of the year. AWESOME!
I mean... I really, really enjoyed the game. It's a very good game. But 9? Really.. a 9?! 8 is enough for it.
An xbox live arcade game scores a 9, and games like COD4 score a 9. Weird dont you think? Maybe that just goes to show you xbots really are as retarded as I thought you were. You guys would buy anything as long as its exclusive to the 360 and give your arcade games a 10/10.
must mean it has better graphics then MGS? Scores are relative to console/price/medium. You should think a bit more before you post.
don't get your hopes up 'da shredder' will never think before he posts. ever.
LOL I see the 1up review was largely ignored, is it because Braid got an A+?.
And the story is phenominal, the puzzles (no pun intended) are simple but require a proper frame of mind, and the music and art look and sound as good going backwards as it does forward, which is awe-inspiring. This game is aboslutely amazing, to think a single person could produce such quality that even full development teams lack is inspirational to anyone who wants to make games. Buy this game, and support this guy's talent, we need more people like him developing games.
and i get disagrees for telling the truth ..sony fans are avoiding braid like the plague !
shredder.. wtf???? you must be new to gaming, i would welcome you but you have lots to learn little 1.
