Honest Gamers writes: "Do be wary of the score, though. Braid is a game with something to say, but not everyone will engage with its statements. They're regularly clouded by thick metaphor, thrown around in seemingly arbitrary motions, and some will dismiss it all as artsy pretension. It is, probably. But it's also key to Braid's breathtaking appeal. Though there's something for everyone, it's clearly targeted at a specific subculture of the gaming community. It's clever and addictive puzzling either way, but if you fit into that category, it's damn near as beautiful as gaming gets. Triumphant".
