Summary: Good for making you think about logic, memory games are rather static, and after a period you could memorize them although they are random they do repeat after a few games. You could have competitions with you friends to see who gets the highest score, however not as interactive as it could have been.
Summary: Bought it as a present for a friend's boy (10 ish), with some apprehension - will he really want this for a birthday present? As it turned out, it proved to be the right thing to buy - he absolutely loves it and is spending a lot of time on it. Purpose served. Obviously, it feels more like 'fun' than like 'learning', which says something about the quality of the game. Impressively fast delivery from Amazon market place.

Pros: Fun, stimulating and gets progressively more challenging
Cons: The cover is off putting but the game is much fun

Summary: There are a lot of game-play genres to draw us in, including the obvious rpg, flying, racing, shooting, strategy & puzzling etc. etc., but this makes a welcome change to the usual gameplay on any console, and shows that Sony can take up where ground-breaking Nintendo started off. Here, the only person to beat or better is yourself (well, your brain, actually).
Conclusion: At Â£10 I had to give this 4 stars as this makes it value for what you get. The game is split into 5 categories of test - Logic, memory, maths, language and concentration. The game has 2 single player modes. Practice asks you to pick one of the 5 categories and then one of the 3 sub-games in the category. Each has 3 difficulty levels. Test takes you through them all where your tested to a time limit.
Summary: Bring deine Synapsen zum glühen!
