Braid is truly amazing, statisfying and complete treasure to own and play. It is Marioesque at first, but the differences soon start to appear and the prince's love story completely makes you run to find his lost princess.
The puzzles are extremely unique and the Prince of Persia Sands of Time, style rewind motion is such a pleasure. It encourages you to try out different things, and leaves off the frustration by restarting the stage or level from the beginning by simply allowing you to rewind and try, or more appropriately explore again.
Braid is a must have Xbox 360 arcade game and Gamespot recently gave them a 9.5/10 - which is their truly elite category - Halo, Gears of War and few others could only make it up there.
Anyway, check out the Braid demo, it is free, solve some multi-dimension puzzles, find missing pieces of jigsaw puzzles by hunting them in obscure locations and using those mushroom-like face animals to spring to higher levels.
