DavidMar 15, 2009A great great game! I have played both Brain age games on the DS and this easily beats it because of all the different fun games. Some are simple and some are not but the 3 different difficulty levels for each will put anyone to the test. The online is a blast!! It's great to be able to get on and see how smart you are compared to all the others :) There is that control issue on only a couple of puzzles but that is not enough to give it a bad score. You WILL have fun with this!! Give it a try.… Expand
JustinDozierJun 12, 2009With the recent boom of IQ testing and brain teasing games, XBLA rolls out it's own. What you get is a failed Nintendo DS game, something more suited for a bargain bin.
Off the bat you're greeted by your soon-to-be-very-annoying teacher/scientist/doctor/whatever you prefer, and off you go into a plethora of challenging, fun minigames. Well, not challenging. Or really fun at all, either.
A few of the categories you're tested upon are visual, logic, memory, and other assorted areas. And the minigames for these areas are either common sense, or simply feel worthless. A few of these games include seeing what ball bounces the highest in a 2D field of balls, simple math activities that seem to be more suited to a 2nd grade classroom, and basic pattern matching games.
There are minimal variations of these minigames, which make coming back to this game every day more and more of a drag.
If you're looking for solid Edutainment, you won't find it here.… Expand
