Braid

  • BraidBuy on Amazon - Copy URL
  • Developed by Number None (2008) on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, Mac
  • Action > 2D Platformer
  • Braid is a puzzle-platformer, drawn in a painterly style, where the player manipulates the flow of time in strange and unusual ways. From a house in the city, journey to a series of worlds and solve puzzles to rescue an abducted princess. In each world, you have a different power to affect the way time behaves, and it is time's strangeness that creates the puzzles. The time behaviors include: the ability to rewind, objects that are immune to being rewound, time that is tied to space, parallel realities, time dilation, and perhaps more. Braid treats your time and attention as precious; there is no filler in this game. Every puzzle shows you something new and interesting about the game world.

--unrated

When I first head about Braid, I didn't care much for it. At the time, it was only available on the XBOX 360 and since Ionly had a PS3, I ignored what people said about it. Fast forward a year later and it comes to the PS3. I wasn't interested at first, but I started paying attention to some reviews which persuaded me to buy the game. I didn't regret it. Braid is a puzzle game that requires you to think hard. Some of these puzzles require a ton of time to figure out, which can be very frustrating if you aren't patient. The story is interesting and mysterious. There are a few twists that you will definitely not see coming. Overall, this game is one of a kind and needs to be played. Again, if you are not patient, stay away from Braid.

10Classic!

I talked about the potential of artistic integrity of video games. Well, god damn, if your talking artsy, your talking Braid. It might not be my favorite, but I could easily say that Braid is the best puzzle game ever made. The puzzles are some of the most challenging in any game I've ever played and the satisfaction of finally getting that puzzle piece is orgasmic. Every factor of this game, game play wise, is genius. The story is glorious, along side a story twist that could make you start to think deeply about very hard questions. If I had one complaint, it was that reading the story through a block of text when you enter rooms could be boring. But, this doesn't take away from any of the games perfected game play and beautiful style.

A beautiful art game that totally shines out from the rest of the spectrum.

10Classic!

For the first time ever, I found a game that was equally as artistic as it was fun, innovative, quirky, mind-blowing, and brilliant. Braid changed the way I look at video games forever.

Brilliant abstract puzzles. If you take pause during the game to read the dialogue, the majority of which is optional, you will find a great story entwined with the main theme of the game - time.

7.5Great

Good writing and some interesting puzzles combined to a game type I am not fond of, platform jumping.

9.0Fantastic

Braid uses abstract poetry and surreal time warping to create a unique world like no other. The main character, Tim, seems like he is searching for a damsel in distress. On the contrary, every part of the story is not as it first appears. The puzzles take intense amounts of time to figure out, but the final ending is well worth the effort. Although some people may hate the ending, it really is a marvelous statement about creating a better future. Braid is a masterpiece.

8.0Great

Innovative gameplay, great artwork, and a powerful message - this is definitely one of the greatest indie games of all time. I do however find it aggravating that the level design is based far too heavily on the collectibles, with relatively no challenge to actually complete the levels.

9.5Classic!

A collection of clever puzzles. The visual is outstanding, but the soundtrack is somehow annoying. Whatever, this game is fantastic and the "time mechanics" are really impressive. I love when developers use casual things to create great games like this. And the 'Super Mario Bros'. inspiration is awesome.

Roger Ebert. Meet Braid. Your argument is now invalid.
