Summary: Brain Boost Gamma Wave is a very fun and addictive game where you compete with youself to better your score every time you play. The catagories and color scemes are really neat making you not want to put this game down. The games are quick enough to breeze through when you only have a few spare minutes. The levels go high enough so that you won't get bored and you're helping boost your memory which is very beneficial.

Summary: Good to have with Brain Boost Beta Wave. Still learning the games(lessons). Sorta cartoonish but I don't mind. Reading glasses for us older users are a must. There are 5 or 6 (games) subjects to work on, and I'm still trying to do so. There is a mission to compete, which I haven't even ventured into! It's not Brain Age 1 or 2 but is still challenging. I enjoy just "relaxing with it" at times. Sooner or later I'll get thru the whole thing!
Summary: Don't waste your money. The Brain Age and Big Brain Academy are SO much better and so much more fun. The countdown between "problems" in the games gets old really fast. The pictures all have the same color palette, so sometimes it's incredibly difficult to differentiate between them, which I suppose might be helpful for memory recall, but the way they are laid out in this game just makes them annoying and frustrating.
Summary: Feeling like you play a game and you come away lesser of a person for giveing it your time, well this game will do the opposite. You suck the game dry and your brain is the benefactor for it. Don't give up , GET EVEN.
Summary: If you have already played out Brain Age and Big Brain Academy, you might find this is a pleasant little diversion to play with. The story might as well not be there, I've never bothered with it, because I don't need some silly story to work on my memory. I wouldn't pay more than $10 for this, but at that rate, it was worth it to have an extra diversion when I have to sit around and wait for something.

Summary: As an adult gamer, I didn't care for this game. I have tried Brain Age and I think it's so much better than Brain Boost: Gemma Wave. Brain Boost is just a memory game, period. There is nothing else to do on it except just to test your memory. 3 ways to test your memory, numbers, pictures and colors. Each test was pretty long. After awhile I got bored with it quickly. For variety, get Brain Age or Brain Academy. Even my nephews ages, 7 and 8 didn't care for it either.
Summary: I skip the goofy story. It was totally not needed! The games are okay. I do wish you could get a record of how you've been doing and how much better you are getting. I am glad I found this and Beta Wave on sale for 9.99. I would have been really disapointed if I had spent 20.00 each! But for 20.00 for both was not so bad. I still play it because the games themselves are good. Maybe the next version will be better...because I would definately give them a try.
