  1. While not all of the puzzles in Dr Reiner Knizia's Brainbenders will take your fancy, there's enough in here to ensure that at least some of it will appeal. The over-arching mechanic adds flavour to ingredients that are otherwise sometimes bland.
  2. Overall, the game felt a little lacking for TLC, but if you're an avid puzzler and a DS owner, Brain Voyage is a solid bet.

    Short-lived fun that will only appeal to the most devout enthusiasts. [May 2008, p.84]
  4. For a "brain" game, Brain Voyage has the style and charm that many of its peers are lacking. However, the whole brain gimmick is just that; this is a basic puzzle game collection through and through.
  5. It is one of the more disappointing brain games I have engaged in; nothing too difficult here and unless you absolutely must play every puzzler out there, I would take a pass.

    Never trust a board game designer to do a math's professors job. This is too lightweight to be of note. [May 2008, p.72]

    Half of these puzzles are better in board game format, which makes sense since it's designed by a board game expert. The puzzles aren’t bad, but they certainly aren’t original and their fun is very short lived.
  8. Everything Brain Voyage does has been done better by other logic and puzzle minigame collections.

    You might get a few hours of enjoyment out of it, but at best, this Voyage is best saved for a short weekend; it's not one you'll want to take too many times.
  10. Although Dr. Knizia has done a good job with his company inventing board games and such this was nothing more than a waste of time.
  11. The Nintendo DS has other logic games in its repertoire that are more exciting, stimulating, and feel more like a complete package.
  12. Brain Voyage is basically a collection of simple games that have little to do with logical reasoning or deep thought and analysis.
