Summary: as we get older our brain cells need a boost. i play this game still, often. the one i play the most is mahjongg. you select pairs to make a score. it makes you think and try to outwit the professor. let's keep the brain cells working and order this games. it has sudoku,cross sums, go, mahjogg and mind bender. try it and i know that you will like it as well.
Summary: This is a good game, but brainage suduko is better. Some of the graphics in this one are a bit small, and the instructions don't help if you don't know how to play the game already. But good game for the money.
Summary: Nice game(s), strange interface Amongst the games included in this N.DS title, Go was the one that caught my attention, but the others are a welcome addition to it. Sudoku: Standard Sudoku (1-9) rules, but the interface isn't as good as those of the Brain Age games. You don't have the small number ability to track "possible" numbers for each square. For this, you have to use a little "scratch pad" if you want to use only the DS interface (or break out a pad and pencil).
Summary: I love puzzle games, and was looking forward to many hours of cerebral challenges. I was sorely disappointed. The directions are hard to read and the graphics are way too small to be enjoyable. In addition, the controls could be more user-friendly. For example, if you enjoy the Sudoku puzzles in Brain Age and are looking for more of the same, you too will be disappointed in the graphics and controls. I love the portability and user-interface of the Nintendo DS.
Summary: The games are fun and you can waste hours playing them! It took a while to get used to how small everything is on the screen and in some cases it seems like they could have made it bigger. Also, the instructions for the games are not very detailed so you sort of have to work out how to play as you go along. Pretty fun overall though.
