Even more train for your brain
14 February 2012
Summary: I hope you can please ignore my grammatical errors in my pathetic excuse for a pun in the title and continue reading. The original Brain Training game has sold over 6 million copies worldwide and remained in the UK charts more than a year after a its initial release. Knowing this and owning a copy of the game for DS myself i didn't think that they could exceed the predecessor and make any improvements that I would not deem unnecessary useless.
Pros: Lots of variety and many games to play, always fun
Cons: Not necessarily great for buzzing,action-pack-lovin g children
Summary: I enjoy puzzle games and like to keep my brain fresh by trying to use it a bit each day so the idea of a game on my DS that would combine the two seemed good to me. I bought more brain training online for around £15 despite not owning the first game in the series as I wanted the most up to date version. THE IDEA The game is designed to be played for a few minutes each day to work your brain - the idea being that anyone can fit this into their schedule.
Pros: Challenging, games are short
Cons: annoying virtual guide, some games can be monotonous
Summary: When this came out, I was like WOW! Because I enjoyed the first one (Brain Training) for while but the challenges got boring. So I bought this... it was pretty much the same apart from the challenges were slightly different. It was fun for a while... once again. But after you've unlocked everything there is to unlock it gets boring. These games make good use of the touch screen that aint always used in other games. Sometimes it can be forgotten about.
Summary: More Brain Training is the sequal to the original Brain training on the DS. Released in 2007 this is an updated and expanded version of the original game. More brain training is designed stimulate your brain and help improve your brain age, telling you what its current age is at each step. The challenges here are designed to test your brain and let you have fun doing it. the games uses all of the DS's controls and is great fun to play alone or with friends (up to 4).
Pros: New mini games, sudoku, great for short bursts of gaming
Summary: Games I tend to play revolve around action and logic as I find they get me going more than other games and the More Brain Training game is meant to test your knowledge and give you a productive brain age score. The game wants you to try and advance your skills in areas such as English and maths and just general logic in simple puzzles.
Summary: When I first bought this game I was addicted to it trying to get the lowest age possible but then it got boring and it looks very simple and plain. It has a sudoku game that goes from easy to difficult I don't play it very often because I feel it is very fiddly and annoying having to change the numbers all the time I think paper is best for that game.
Pros: challenging and a good mixture of different types of games
Summary: I received this game as a present at the same time as my Nintendo DS. I certainly liked the idea of a challenging game that would test my knowledge and mental ability. The game was really easy to set up and start playing. You can create your own profile that saves your progress as you play each time. There is also the option to play with up to 16 friends - something I have not yet tried however!
Brain Training (DS): a session a day helps your mind stay awake!
14 March 2010
Summary: Now I personally really like this game. But first I want to clear up that I don't think it's for all ages as it seems to make out. We bought my grandad a nintendo ds and brain training for his birthday (he is 70) and I really don't think he got the hang of it at all. He is perfectly capable of basically everything, but I think the technology side of this baffled ihm a bit. So I think maybe it's best leaving this game from that age market?
Pros: noticeable results - especially with mental maths!
A good game, definitely a strain on your mental skills
19 January 2010
Summary: This game will certainly test your mental skills, requiring you to complete mini-games such as answering sums quickly and correctly. Your eyes will be glued to the screen in order to achieve the best score. One good feature of the game is the multiplayer side, it supports download play for up to 16 players. The download play allows you to play the quick play mode or the Calculations x30 mode, in which you must answer 30 sums as fast as possible.
Pros: Good multiplayer, nice amount of games to play with friends or on your own
