More Brain Training from Dr Kawashima: How Old Is Your Brain? Review
30 November 2007
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.
Conclusion: So, More Brain Training, unsurprisingly, is very much more of the same, only better. Everything you liked about the first game is still here, but it just feels more engaging, more challenging and a more rounded product. If you despised the first title, it’s highly unlikely More Brain Training will tempt you into its fold.

Excerpt: As if you weren’t clever enough already I’ve only known him for 2 minutes, and already me and Dr Kawashima are getting on like a house on fire. He’s taught me the basics about the frontal lobe of the brain, spurred me on to achieve better scores on his challenges and has even revealed that, like me, he has an intolerance to pollen around this time of year.
Pros: Brand new puzzles, Basic user-friendly layout, It works!
Cons: Doesn’t do a lot to justify a full blown sequel, Still has problems with letter and number recognition
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.
