  1. Played for the right reason, a little bit at a time, Mega Brain Boost could be considered great value for the money, production values aside.
  2. 71
    In terms of casual friendly training games, Mega Brain Boost is a good game. The problem is that it lacks the subtle refinements that would have improved the game considerably.
  3. It may lack some of the refinements (such as development tracking or download play) that would have made it a more attractive choice, but for the price and genre, you could probably do worse.
  4. 45
    It's insulting that the developer and publisher would just throw this game back out without bothering to improve the core mechanics of the title. Dumb move.
  5. The game claims to score brain development, but there is no baseline testing, so getting a high score at the start seems to invalidate the whole process. What are you being compared to when receiving a 100% score? In the end, this game lacks punch.
  6. You'll blow through most of Mega Brain Boost's offerings in a single afternoon – a couple of hours even – and never want to return.
  7. As far as effectiveness in training goes ... I don't know. I wish it had a Brain Age kind of graph in order to see how far I've progressed. I hate to say it, but there is a strong possibility that I might be a little rustier after Mega Brain Boost than before.
