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.

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: "This was the very first game I got for my Nintendo DS, as it came with the console itself. I started playing the quick training mode to just get a feel for the game, and to see my rough brain age (it was in its 40's). The game I played was that either 'rock', 'paper', or 'scissors' would appear, and I had to say either 'rock', 'paper', or 'scissors' so that I would win. This did take about half the game to get used to, but when I had, I was really ...
Pros: Very amusing to find out your actual brain age
Excerpt: "Dr Kawashima's Brain Training is an excellent tool for those who want that bit extra from reading, or want to keep stimulated during boring days. The console itself can be bought second hand from Game shops, with the preference being the Nintendo DS Lite. It looks cute and can play a diverse amount of games (including Gamboy Advance Games - It has another slot beneath). The Brain Training game is excellent and has tools from simple calculations ...
Pros: Daily reward of knowing how clever you are
Cons: Can take a short while to get used to if you don't play a lot with technology
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.
