Summary: I purchased the Nintendo DS Brain Quest for grades 5 & 6 for my 4th grader daughter. She seems uninterested until I took it and started playing with it, with her next to me. I pretended not to know some of the answers and she took it from me. Look at me funny and started answering the questions. At first she said she wasn't a 5th grader, but I reminder her that things we learn at school isn't only for 4th graders.
Summary: this game is really, really bad. I mean, the sound is horrible, the questions are simple, and i got this game several years ago when i got my first ds because my parents thought it would be 'educational'. But the game is really bad, parents, don't waste your money.
Summary: I bought this game for my son with a processing disorder.He liked it from the start,he found each game fun and has learned a lot. Out of all his educational games he seems to pick this one up first. As a mom I like it becuase it handles many types of learning and it is something he is not bored by. I think it was a wise buy and if I had someone else in need of a educational game I would buy it for them right away.
Summary: I guess I'm just not going to be happy until a new "Brain Age" game comes out! I'm a tad (a big tad) older than most DS users but asked for a DS a couple of years ago because I had used my son's and was immediately addicted! But I'm old and boring and enjoy the "brain games" but wanting a little variety from the "Brain Age 1 & 2" games, I purchased pretty much anything I could find that would challenge my old brain but this wasn't it.
Summary: My 10 year old daughter says 'some' questions are easy. She would recommend it to others her age. It did have some challenges for her. She is an advanced reader and excells also in Math and this was stimulating for her (brain). I always prefer a thinking game over a video game for their hand-held gaming systems.
