    Body and Brain Connection is an ambitious idea and definitely fills a niche for Xbox Kinect.

    Still, BaBC is a solid brain-training title that packs a fascinating concept -- one that I hope Namco-Bandai will develop a bit more robustly in later iterations of the title.

    In the end, Dr. Kawashima's Body and Brain Exercises is an interesting concept on the Kinect that works on some levels (improved mental and physical reactions) but is a little lost when it comes to real fun.

    Do not forget that Kawashima KINECT is meant for short play sessions every day, and less for an extended test session.

    Who really knows if this game works as it is selling itself, but as far minigame collections go, this one offers you a little more incentive to keep revisiting it. It's pretty fun, but that's about it. Also, Dr. Kawashima is a bit of a jerk.

    Dr. Kawasima's Body and Brain Training is an entertaining novelty at first, but it quickly becomes tiresome after a few days. An achievement awarded for playing a total of 50 days seems hugely ambitious then, as the appealing Avatar-based challenges will grow increasingly dull, prompting you to find new methods of self-improvement. Perhaps Kawashima should practice what he preaches, and go back into training and come back with a better score.

    If the Kinect can't muster up a decent game and fast, it'll be hard for anyone to wash their mouths of the bad taste games like Body and Brain Connection leave behind.

    great fun, some of the games are a bit rubbish but a few of them just make you wanna come back and improve on them. if you liked the brain training on the nintendo ds then this is for you. Expand
