"Braid is one of the top three games available on Xbox Live Arcade. While it LOOKS like a platformer, it is actually a time bending puzzle game that will challenge and entertain you every step of the way. As an added bonus, the gameplay reveals a multi-layered story which can lead to some insightful, if not down right philosophical discussion, if you so choose. I highly recommend it."
