Critical Gamer writes: Being able to bend time around your little finger has always had its perks. It means you can avoid death, burning things in the oven becomes less of an issue, and any social faux pas involving inappropriate acts towards the opposite sex can be changed. That's just rewinding time though, the real challenge is in slowing it down, speeding it up, creating parallel time frames and just about everything else you need to do if you want to complete Braid.
This game will test you. It isn't a case of manipulating time to make things easier, a la Prince of Persia, but more to do with changing time to make things possible. You'll have to do things like reverse time to restore items that you have already smashed over an enemies head, slow down a moving platform so you can grab a key that is resting on it before it drops, and create a parallel of yourself in a different timeline to operate a switch in unison with your current self.
