Finished. This game is one of the very few examples of a story whose ending is both completely shocking and completely appropriate and logical. It is something that really must be experienced first hand to fully appreciate and is unforgettable by those who have. I got to the normal ending, only having to consult a strategy guide once (a testament to the nearly pitch-perfect puzzle design), although I had to find a guide to get the special messages during the epilogue. All in all, a really unique and personal experience that is simply wonderful from beginning to end. If I have one complaint it would be that the game is very short: probably only five or six hours total. Although that is not so egregious considering that many full retail titles selling for thee times the MSRP of Braid have single player experiences that are just as short, and not as good, in most cases.
