Worth it for the music alone.
It's a sweet indie game, with cool mechanics. I wasn't a fan of the story, but that didn't hold me back from enjoying the gameplay.

The beautiful graphics initially draw you in to thinking that this will be just a slick update to the sort of platformers that were around in the 80s-90s. However after the first couple of levels it becomes obvious that Braid is so much more.
Having introduced the rewind-time mechanic early on, it now stops being a novelty and becomes essential to completing the level as the puzzles ramp up.
The puzzling is certainly challenging but never illogical or too obscure. Overall, a gorgeous- looking game that is both fun and engaging.
