Bust A Move DS
4 New from
I love Bust-a-Move on Playstation, so this was a must-buy for me as soon as I bought my DS. Though I must say, I was a little bit disappointed in comparison to the Playstation, but the game itself is excellent.
The game itself is the same as on Playstation, and for any gamer, I would definitely recommend it. It's such a fun game, and simple too. There are different challenges on the game, including a Puzzle, Endless and Computer mode, as well as multiplayer if that suits you.
However, I just don't really think that this is the type of game for a DS. The two screens make it quite awkward to play the game efficiently as aiming it therefore difficult. I was thankful that you don't have to use the stylus, though if you wish too, you aim by using a slingshot method, but it's really quite difficult!
So overall, the game is brilliant, but I'd recommend buying the Playstation version, more than the DS version.
Cooking Mama 2

At first, I thought that I may not like this game. Within 30 minutes of playing, my opinion was quickly reversed! It's incredibly addictive, especially as you try to get to gold on every recipe!
There are a number of different things to unlock, including around 80 different recipes, which have a range of different tasks, all of which are fun and interesting! Once you've unlocked these, you will receive a trophy. It's difficult to get to gold in some of them, so gameplay can always continue and you shouldn't finish the game within a day! You can also unlock 10 different characters in the Let's Cook mode, and bonuses at the end of each recipe allow you to unlock different items, including clothes to dress up Mama!
There's so much to the game that it will have you playing for hours at a time, and you won't be finishing it quickly, I'm sure of that! It's definitely worth the money, so buy, buy buy!

Having played this game on Playstation, I knew that it had to be good. But it's even better than that - it's great, though incredibly addictive!!!
There's a number of different challenges to play, which stops the game being tedious, and it's cute too, which is a bonus!
The only thing I would change is the ability to delete the data, but as of yet, I have not found a way, which is a bit of a pain with a pre-owned game, but it's certainly not worth a star!
I would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes a good game, but prepare to spend many hours of your life playing it!
Brain Training: Dr Kawashima's How Old Is Your Brain
16 New from
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!
Big Brain Academy

This game is fantastic! At first, I thought it may have been a little bit kiddified, but there are different levels of difficulty in the Practice area, and the actual test can get challenging at times too! But I'd say it was great for all the family, especially as you can have 4 Profiles per game card.
There are lots of 3 different games in 5 different categories to choose from, each of which have the 3 levels of difficulty. They are all fun, and some are quite challenging! You can receive a bronze,silver and gold medal for each, so it's definitely something to work towards, unless you're just a genius!!
On the main test, it gives you a random game per category, and it combines all difficulties into one test. At the end of the test, you are presented with your Brain Size (which, yes, you should take quite light-heartedly. It cannot predict your physical brain size, which some people seem to think it can!!), as well as presenting you with a Level (A/B/C etc). and what your level of intelligence is equivalent too e.g. a lawyer, which is a fun addition! People need to note though - this game DOES NOT tell you the age of your brain - it's the brain size!!
It's a must buy for any brain trainer certainly! For me, it's better than the Brain Training: How Big Is Your Brain, because there is a greater aspect of fun to it, plus you can repeat the challenges as many times as you wish! So yes, buy buy buy :)
