  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. Mega Brain Boost is a game that does precisely what it intends to do, but little else. If you are a gamer who finds these kinds of games worthwhile, then the game can feature somewhat decent gameplay, but any other gamer should not bother themselves with it.
  4. 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.
  5. Rarely making you feel like you accomplished very much or gained a deeper insight in how well your right brain potential is measured, Mega Brain Boost lacks all the interesting tools that Brain Age possesses.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.

    If you want a good, fun, and challenging way to work your mind, do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of Professor Layton. The 130-odd logic puzzles found there-in will do more for your brain than wasting time and money on a poor Brain Age knock-off.
