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.
Excerpt: My daughter was desperate for Ads so we gave in a purchased one for her birthday I decided that I would see what all the fuss was about and treated myself to Brain training. What is Brain training? Basically this "game" is full of Sudoku puzzles and simple mathematics sums alongside memory exercises and reading aloud. The idea is that by doing these sorts of exercises that you can stimulate your brain.
A good came to start with to get used the ds controls

Excerpt: Brain training was the second game i purchased when i got my ds as i had seen the advertisements of Television for it and thought it looked great. It is an excellent game to i have enjoyed it, but after a while the game can get a bit repetitive after you completed all the task there is nothing left.
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.
Excerpt: I got given this as a present so didn't have any preconceived ideas about it, so bored on an long train trip I decided to give it a go. I found it strangely addictive and found myself desperately trying to beat myself. The game has a collection of simple maths problem which are timed, word puzzles and logic/spacial problems. As you complete them you get access to more, all these tasks act as practice for brain age check test where the goal is 20.
Excerpt: This game is utterly superb, there is just so much to do and whilst at first sight, this type of game might seem boring and mundane but I can gurantee you that once you pick up this game and try it for the first time only for it to tell you that your brain is about 89 years old, especially when you are only 19 you will stop at nothing to prove the game wrong and get you mental age down.
Excerpt: I got this game with my Nintendo DS and started using it most nights just for 10 minutes or so and I did actually see a difference in my mind :-p Brain Training is a game which tells you the "age" of your brain by testing you on certain aspects, youi play the game on your Nintendo DS, and the game costs around Â£15-Â£20 depending on where you go for it!
