More Brain Training (DS): Not for everyone
22 May 2013
Summary: More Brain Training is the Nintendo DS sequel to Brain Training and although an educational game which provides something a bit different this game can get a bit dull especially if you prefer action based games but the concept is good and I can see why this game would appeal to many people.
Pros: Interesting, lots to do, challenges the brain
Summary: Playing games is always a great pleasure if they are good in many areas but I like to try new things. I had never played Brain Training for a long period of time and this is my experience and more information about the game. This game is meant to give you an insight into how old your brain is. This is done by how good you are at playing some of the activities they have for you to play.
Summary: My husband bought me a Nintendo DS for Christmas a couple of years ago and included this game with it. I did the brain training religiously every day for the first 6 months after I got this, but after that the novelty wore off. I don't think it really improved my brain but it did keep it active in the evenings and provide competition and entertainment while I used it. When it first came out it was very hyped and a lot of people bought it because of that.
Brain Training (DS): Brain accuracy or just a good memory needed?

Summary: Brain training for the Nintendo DS was one of the first games to be released for the console and has been one of the most popular too, with many people wanting to challenge their friends and family to see who has the 'youngest' brain age. The idea of the game is to try different challenges and puzzles every day to get your brain working and eventually make it 'younger'.
Pros: Fun, quick games for all the family
Cons: Can be quite repetitive and voice control may not work as well as you think.
Brain Training (DS): Brain Training. Can you be bothered?

Summary: This is Nintendo's flagship game for targeting the adults & getting them to buy DS consoles. A game that excersises your brain. Brain Training works by giving you lots of different puzzles, brain teasers & mathmetical quizs. These include simple maths puzzles. A game where you see a colour written down that is coloured in a different colour & you say the colour you can see not what is written down. A game where you count things in & out of something & memory excerisises.
Pros: Will keep your brain fit & excersised. Lots of fun Sudoku Puzzles.
Cons: Will probably make you feel like you're back at school & the novelty wears off quickly.
Summary: I think it would be fair to say that the Brain 'Age' Training thing is a bit of a gimmick. In fact I will go as fas as to say any Brain Training in this instance is just a USP. But lets not let that stand in the way of a bit of fun. I do like to do things that will keep my brain active, so I was looking forward to getting around to trying this. The core of the 'game; if you like is the Brain Age Check, Training, and Sudoku.
Summary: Initially a very interesting and almost addictive game with a variety of mini-games to test and improve memory skills etc. however over time some of the games become boring and you find yourself more often turning on the game to the annoyed looking narrator asking why he hasn't seen you in a while. Though this is a game that although can become boring after a while will inevitably be taken back from the cupboard to be played again after some time away from it.
Pros: good use of DS features, range of mini-games, all ages
Brain Training (DS): Hmm it trains your brain so well that everyone can get top m ...

Summary: This game came packaged with my DS and whilst I initially really enjoyed the novelty of it, this soon wore off and I have found this infuriating. The game supposedly trains your brain- it contains several activities which you can do and it will then test you on them and tell you how old your brain is. Activities include arithmetic, reading and counting various things. For me this game's downfall is down to three things.
Summary: If this game does what it says on the box then this should be another of Nintendo's revolutionary "good for you" games. It claims that within days it can make you much smarter. This is quite a sweeping claim to live up to however, and I don't think that this game will be able to live up to it. The game is comprised of different modes, which test and train your brain. It has a daily trainin g option, which builds your brain over a period of time.
Summary: If their is one good thing about this game it's that it seems to have bought the DS (and the fun you can have with it) to the attention of people who otherwise would have little or no interest in playing video games, but the question is whether it's actually a good game.... Intially this game is great fun, regardless as to whether or not it actually does train your brain.
