More Brain Training from Dr Kawashima: How Old Is Your Brain? Review
21 February 2008
Excerpt: I wasn't the biggest DS fan when Brain Training hit the big time in June 2006. Its collection of gimmicky games had done nothing for me, but Brain Training showed that simple little games could be addictive and fun. Fast forward a year and my DS Lite is being used daily, with More Brain Training from Dr. Kawashima: How Old Is Your Brain? being a key part of my daily routine. As a sequel to the immensely popular Brain Training, More Brain Training had a lot to live up to.
Excerpt: Okay, this might not be as action packed as CoD or as visually effective as Final Fantasy, but this intriguing little DS sequel is certainly more addictive. It provides fantastic pocket sized entertainment while apparently keeping your brain sharp at the same time.
Summary: Ever since videogaming went mainstream — and parents and politicians began to worry that Mario and Sonic were rotting kids’ minds — the industry has defended the positive effects, citing improved reflexes, problem-solving and perseverance. However, Nintendo’s Brain Training takes this one step further, offering a range of challenges said to exercise your grey matter and make even the oldest mind as alert as that of a 20 year-old.
Excerpt: Hoe verslavend is het maken van rekensommen en het onthouden van woorden als je er op school al een hekel aan hebt (gehad)? Blijkbaar heel erg leuk, want in Japan was Brain Training een enorm groot succes. Een spel wat vooral geschikt is voor oudere mensen, of non-gamers. Normaal houdt ik niet zoveel van dit soort games, maar dit leek me een bijzonder leuk spel. Niet omdat ik zoveel van rekensommetjes houdt, maar toch had het spel iets.
