  1. Maths Training won't make you smarter, but it will make you quicker at solving simple sums. If that sounds like something you'd like to add to your CV then pick the game up. But don't expect anything more - maths isn't fun. It's just maths.
  2. As effective as the Hundred Cell method may be, it would have been good to see more fun exercises included instead of just yet more black-and-white sums. The exercises are too simple for adults.
  3. This math-based minigame collection works well as a revision tool for reinforcing what you already know, but is unlikely to teach any new skills.
  4. You get a lot of maths for your money in Maths Training. The randomised content across the dozens of different puzzle types should be enough to keep one busy (if not amused) for some time.

    I know I keep coming back to the two Brain Training games but it's difficult not to; they test more areas of your brain, have more variety and are generally more interesting to play.
  6. Maths Training looks good on paper and has a few good ideas, but forgets the importance of making learning fun.

    A treat, albeit a masochistic and frustrating one. [Issue#21, p.89]

    Calling Maths Training a game could be stretching it a little, but anyone who needs to brush up on their maths skills or enjoys the idea of small daily maths quizzes will get a lot of value out of this game.

    As I say, for its target market, PKMT could be a really good thing, provided parents use it and, more than that, make sure their kids use it.

    It's just mental arithmetic, not a game or entertainment. [Apr 2008, p.85]
