Summary: My ds was broken so I went out to get a new one. The new ds came with this game. I played it three times. Each time I played the game, I wish I had gotten the ds without Jin Jin's IQ challange. I do not work for a computer company. I do have Brain Age 2 and I enjoy it. Because I like brain age, I thought I would enjoy this one. I agree with the reviewer that said this game is cheesy.
Summary: There are so many brain games out there and I am glad of it. Thus I can challenge myself and not get bored doing it. I think the character is a bit ugly but that is not the point here. There are different settings for you to work in like are you at home, during a break, in transit, and advanced....me I am still beginner. There are riddles to earn, mazes, patterns, blocks to arrange, Search which is hard finding geometric shapes.
Summary: I only received this game a few days ago, and the games are good--more enjoyable than brain age 1 and 2. I am having problems with recognition of my writing and have the hardest time picking up the ball at the beginnning of the maze. Hopefully with practice I will get better.
Instead of playing this just stick pins in your eyes

Summary: It's boring - AND it's annoying - AND you don't succeed in the true goal of these Nintendo DS Get-A-Brain games. The true goal is to stop trying to think and to let your mind automatically find the answers. It's true -- that's precisely what will happen with the Brain Age games or Flash Focus or the language coach games --- you start perceiving and processing in a different manner --- this thing just makes you want to step on the chip wearing steel-toed boots.
Summary: I have had this game going on 2 months now. The game provides all sorts of levels of challenge. The games are engaging and more evolved than Brain Age, which I also own. My 9-year old plays this game regularly and enjoys it as well! I have had no issues with the input recognition on this game.
Summary: I have all 3 Brain age games, and those games mostly depend on learning to play the game. You don't actually 'increase your brain age', you simply improve your interface-use skill due to learned reflexes ~ coupled with getting a lucky mix-up the game gives you once in a while. In comparison, this game provides more of the traditional kind of puzzles, the kind used in IQ tests - such as discerning shapes, mathematical logic questions, number sequences, logical riddles..
Do not buy this game, get brain age or any other challenge game first

Summary: This game is a piece of junk, if I could give it 0 stars or negative stars, I would. It is a very bad sign that in a game designed to "improve" your intelligence, words are misspelled and the grammar is atrocious. The handwriting recognition is worse than on any other DS game, I have had no issues with any other DS game with handwriting recognition, but I could not get this game to recognize "5" or "9" or "6", they all get interpreted as "8".
