  Makes training your brain fun

| | See all retty132's reviews (34)

This is a good game offering a variety of mini-games that encourage your brain to work to its full capacity. The game tracks dates and allows you to see progress in your brain age. It also asks questions about what you did that day and asks it back in a fortnight or so which I find a nice addition. Another pro is that it asks if you are able to speak or not, which is useful as to make the game playable on the go too. A good game which I just keep going back to.

  Very good game but can get a bit repetative.

I have played this game for quite a while now and I must admit its quite good. It is able to help you excersise your brain so you can have a good brain age. The tips and advice given during the game is quite good and can really help you to train your brain to th best it can be. The only reason it didnt get a 5***** is because after a while the game can start to get a bit repetative after doing all the same puzzles every day. However altogether this is a good game and one that everyone should try.

  Super Brain!

It does the trick.. you'll excercise your brain, your age will improve each week. After a while it is kind of annoying, doing the same puzzles and questions, but it's still quite amusing! You can always switch to the sudoku-mode :)

This game is great for the young and the old. It is mentally stimulating and fun with it. It is great to see the improvement in your concentration and your brain activity. It helps all areas of the brain and covers most school subjects.

This is a must buy for the ds or dsi.

  GOOD

This is a great game and gets your brain working, but my mates have all told me that More Brain Training is better. But still a great game to get though.

  Good, but not brilliant

I had high expectations for this game, but was slightly disappointed when I bought it.

I think it's definitely a good buy for any brain trainer though, and would recommend it all the same. It has a Daily Play option, which makes it easier to quickly challenge family and friends without having to create a profile, as well as the option to create 4 profiles on one card. There is the Brain Age Test, which has 3 random tests, as well as Training, with a range of different tests, which are unlockable depending on the number of stamps that you have. All of the tests are good and do challenge your brain, and it's good to have a graph result at the end so that you can easily see your progress...or in some cases, not! There is also a few hints after gameplay, about some hidden features of the game as well as how you can improve your brain whilst out and about.

However, for me, the reason why it's not 5 stars is because, although you can take the test as many times as you want in a day (though your result is only recorded once daily), you can only train in each test once per day. Also, I think the speaking function of the game is quite limited, making it difficult to successfully complete the Stroop Test and Speed Counting.

Overall, I'd say it was worth buying the game, but don't go in with too high expectations as you may be a bit disappointed!

Great game for all the family young to old. Good for teaching the kids to do maths and great for us oldies to warm up the cold brains.

Many completions in the house to get a brain age of 21 and I won might I add I won wooo hooo.

Fun game for all :)

  I like this game!

I found this very interesting to play and to see what things iam good at and what im weakest at. I love the word game where you have to say the colour rather than the word and i make sure i do the training everyday/. Have always been rubbish at maths and i can see this helping me to improve! my brain age has gone down already and ive only had it a week.
The suduko i am addicted to! i hadn't ever played before but once i did i couldn't put it down!
Would recommend this game to anyone that likes testing themselves and who like maths or wants to improve their maths skills.
