    The Wii advantage is that even with just one remote, you can invite a pile of people over to party and have a really good time together.
  2. It is great to see games with a specific goal in mind succeed, and the funny thing is that Big Brain delivers in a pair, providing a learning experience and a degree in fun. I for one could not be happier.

    On that note, this is a great game for children. There is absolutely no objectionable content, and the games are all educational. This is definitely a great family title. I highly recommend Big Brain Academy.
  4. The first outing on the Wii is solid and it has a well rounded approach that gives the user a very enjoyable experience. There is still a lot of room for improvement, but in the end I have to say fans of the previous game or those who want to test their brain should really go check this game out, it is definitely worth a look.

    There's no question that Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree will be divisive among gamers. The hardcore will balk at its lightweight mini-games and family-friendly vibe.

    You're going to have fun here, but in three or four years we'll look back at this game and it will pale by comparison to its inevitable sequels.
  7. Even if it doesn’t make you smarter, you won’t feel completely stupid for buying this puzzler.

    A decent party game with a nice twist. Brain training is not awfully scientific, but it is fun enough to keep you entertained a few minutes a day. [Sept 2007]

    Overall:2.6/3
