Nidzumi: Braid Review: A Touch of Genius

Nidzumi writes: You would be forgiven for initially seeing Braid as a pretentious Mario clone with an artistic backdrop. To be honest that's what I did but when you really dig into what Braid really is you'll notice that it's really a very clever puzzle game.

It's the games pomposity that might turn you away because although Braid initially draws you in with it's indie charm and artistic vision, it will put you off with it's initial lack of direction and purposely vague story. The game that is made up of 6 worlds and presents you with the story of a man named Tim. Tim is looking for his Princess, who is always in another castle, who you are lead to believe has recently spilt up with Tim. The story plays out an abstract tale of regret, love & obsessive behaviour....

The story is too old to be commented.
