Summary: This is a great game for both kids and adults. My daughter has been playing this since she was four she six now. It was easy for her to understand and she loved the practices. As an adult, I thought the game was challenging but fun and I liked that it offered room for improvement. After just a little practice you can raise your score. These are great mental exercises and this game is better than other brain games out there. Highly recommended.
Another "Brain Training" game to flatter oneself with as to how clever you are...

Summary: Big Brain Academy takes a very different approach to Brain Age in that it tests 5 aspect of one's intelligence and plots the results it on a web chart and then make a judgement on what career your profile best suits. Quite good fun trying to outdo yourself each time but one wonders if the improvement is really intelligence built or that one that comes with familiarisation.
Summary: My daughter just opened the game and I"m appalled. They don't even ask their age before they determine that the kids gets a D on the test. My six year old was so disappointed and then wanted to know what getting that job meant. WOW! As a teacher I find this practice unbelievable. You may not disagree but there is a tactful way and a positive way to give feedback for a child.
Summary: I received this as a gift from someone very near and dear to my heart! He'd played this game and enjoyed it so much that he bought me a copy from Amazon. When I first played it I felt stupid because some parts are challenging. Then the more you play and your "brain gets bigger", it's addicting and FUN! I love this game. The "exercises" are fun and like I said, addicting. I find myself playing this game more than some of my others. A definite must have.
Summary: I have been playing the Wii version of this game for awhile now and really enjoyed it to date. Recently I bought a ds and thought it would be nice to have Big Brain on the handheld device. I was expecting that it would be a carbon copy of the Wii game and I never read the description or specifics about the ds version. I was delighted though when I realized that all the puzzle games were different.
