  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. 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. 20
    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.
