Summary: As far as my health is concerned -taking my Type-1 Diabetes into account of course- I would say that I'm in fairly good trim. I mean I'm not a fitness fanatic like Mr. Motivator, but I do go out for 20-30 minute runs at least 5 days a week, and I try to drink as much water as possible. But according to one Dr. Ryuta Kawashima, exercise is also required for the brain. Yep! If you don't train your brain it'll end up with the beer belly of a 1980's dart player. Dr.
Mainly a game to wake the brain. Not for entertainment purposes.

Summary: If you have your DS at the side of your bed and before you get up for breakfast, just waken up with some puzzles you will begin to memorise over time, then I guess it works. And that it has worked for me. But I guarantee you that you will grow tired of this thing for it's 'fun' factor. It's a maths game though it does what it says.

Excerpt: Everyday, people knock video games, saying that they corrupt the intelligence of the youth today. They argue that video games actually make you less aware and wear your brain out to the point where you are actually less smart than when you started playing.

Summary: I had seen a few adverts for this brain training game for the Nintendo DS before I purchased the DS. Being a lover of puzzles it was one of the first games I bought when I finally got my DS. Overall I was a little bit disappointed with the game, there are a few things that annoy me about it which I will go into later. I paid around £5 for a used copy in a game shop. The game is available on Amazon used from £0.40 plus delivery. WHAT IS BRAIN TRAINING?
Pros: Anyone can play it, good to know your brain's "improving"
Summary: I thought it was a great game until i got to the last test (Voice recognition). Where you have to answer maths problems out loud. I have been un-able to complete it. I say 2, it comes up with 7, and wont recognise the number 6 at all. Im from yorkshire and havent a strong accent.
Pros: Fun, motivating, without having to spend more the 30min/day. I am a neuroscientist myself and I see great logic in BRAIN AGE.
Cons: The voice recognition is not that good and tends to fail at critical moments while you're trying to beat the clock. I found that if you perform in a closed small room (windows and door shut), then the voice recognition works much better (almost perfectly)
