In an age when many games feel like clones of one another or are designed to be easy to beat, Braid sticks to its guns and delivers a rewarding and memorable experience that's definitely worth checking out. It's like an invigorating breath of fresh air, and proof that a handful of independent developers can create games that raise the bar for others.

Braid has some fantastic puzzle gaming, a unique aesthetic style and one of the best endings in gaming. These great qualities are slightly countered by a short playthrough time and lack of awe-inspiring visual moments, but there is no question that Braid is still a great game. If you are a puzzle fan you owe it to yourself to pick this game up, just don’t expect the fun to last for too long.

Braid est un titre envoûtant, unique et poétique. L'aventure qu'il propose est parfaitement maîtrisée quel que soit le point de vue adopté. Le gameplay est millimétré, intelligent et ne souffre d'aucun véritable défaut. Braid sollicite les neurones bien plus que les réflexes, mais il le fait avec brio, sans jamais sombrer dans le piège d'une difficulté outrancière ou d'une facilité condescendante. Braid est un titre mature, qui ne plaira pas à tout le monde, ne serait-ce que par la mélancolie qui se dégage de ses différents tableaux et de sa musique.
