Summary: I use it everyday along with the maths training and thoroughly enjoy it. I am not a spring chicken but have succeeded in getting my brain age right down. After a while on the training you can tell that your brain is improving as things come easier and quicker.
Summary: I bought this for my Christmas DS lite. Since then I've barely missed a day! I'm really enjoying it; a little workout for my brain every day! Unlike other reviewers I have had no problem at all with voice recognition on the famous Stroop test (the one where you have to say the colour a word is written in, rather than the colour the word says - surprisingly tricky!). I'm also having no difficulty with character recognition when writing numbers on the screen.
Summary: There is a daily brain age check and daily training. There are different tests on each, some tests are only brain age and vice-versa. There are graphs showing progress,there can be 4 people registered on card.You can compare graphs.You do pictures of things the doc asks you to draw and when everyones done them they all come on screen and you can have a good laugh lol! Among the tests are: STROOP TEST - the words Yellow, Blue, Red and Black come on screen.
Dr Kawashima's Brain Training: How old is your brain?

Summary: I have just recently bought a Nintendo lite, and this is one of the first games I played, and I can honestly say , it is really good fun, despite the fact that I scored an 80 year old brain on my first attempt (I am only 37!!) I have never been a big maths fan, but this IS fun, let all your friends try it too. Very engaging, highly recommended.
Summary: I gotta tell you I love this game. It puts fun into maths, it's very clever, and it does actually encourage you to give your brain a bit of a workout instead of sticking the telly on straight away. It's also easy to use with simple instructions.
Summary: How old is my brain? Wow! I enjoy doing puzzles that challenge my brain anyway, so I bought this game, it's a great way to exercise the brain, especially first thing in the morning (if you have time). I never realised how much of my times tables I had forgotten before using this game, I am now starting to remember most of my timestables and this game is really helping, you always want to beat your best score, so the game makes you push yourself harder.
Summary: Brilliant game, bought November 2007, I never thought I would stick with a console game as long as this, my son started me off and I couldnt put it down and now three of us in the family are playing everyday, you can do as little as two games (to get your stamp) or more.
Summary: I bought this for Christmas for all of the family to use. It's good value, it's fun - it's addictive at first and has brought out the competitive side of every one as there is the ability to compare results. It also helps you to improve your brain when you have tended to be a bit lazy over time. Like other reviewers voice recognition on the colour test has been a bit sketchy.
