    so, for anyone who has a 360, have you guys played the XBLA game Braid?

    I just beat it, and I have to say, it is a masterpiece. the ending level is truly shocking and mind-blowing.

    if you have a 360, you owe it to yourself to buy this game now! :thumbup:

    I can't find many flaws in the game. music is great (depends on your opinion of it), story is great, gameplay is great, puzzles are extremely clever. it is a must-buy. and by the time you will beat it, you will be analyzing the story for a long, long time.

    I will remember this game for years.

    I bought it yesterday, and I beat it the same day. The length was very disappointing.

    That said, it looks beatiful, the story is wonderful in its own special way, and it was a ton of fun while it lasted. Not to mention the time manipulation is just awesome.

    If you can accept the lack of playing time combined with the price of 1200 Microsoft Points, you should definitely get this if you have an Xbox 360.

    yeah, personally for me, I don't find the length of the game much of a problem, but for most people, it will be.

    breadheadfred, have you heard about the parallel story that is being told in the game? I didn't know about it until I looked on the internet, but it explains all the weird books at the end

    WARNING: massive spoilers for Braid ahead:

    you should read this (anyone who has beaten it). It amazes me how many stories are going on in Braid, this is just one of them that people have figured out.

    Wow...just wow. I've heard that Braid has some kind of hidden/subliminal story of some sort, but that's just amazing. I definitely don't regret spending 1,200 points on a game with a story like this!
