Big Brain Acedemy

sabrinaschihuahua, Ebay
9 February 2011
  • Summary: Game was very lame, not fun at all, in fact the kids didn't even stick with it after learning how to play with it, maybe why the seller was selling it? I tried it with my spouse and we both got bored easily with it. A big disappointment.

Big Brain Academy so so

kjws01, Ebay
3 May 2009
  • Summary: The game is okay but I was very disappointed in it. Not near as fun as the DS version which I love. Only paid $10, so it is okay for that price, probably fun for younger players.

A bit dull.

  • Summary: This soon lost its appeal. We are in our 50's and love quizzes and crossword puzzles, and this got dull after a while.

A bit boring

Rob Ollerton, amazon.co.uk
29 January 2010
  • Summary: We quickly got bored with this. Quite a challenge to start with, but after a few goes, the tests are predictable and boring. There really is no variation to the basic set of tests you get with the first play. It doesn't get any more challenging as you go along. Only useful as a "stocking filler", if it's cheap enough at the time you buy it.

For younger people only

Ms. L. Bates, amazon.co.uk
18 April 2009
  • Summary: I read the reviews on this and bought it for my mum as part of her present, although I then found out she already had it and therefore kept it myself as was buying a wii at the time. Have only played it the once and it is not for me really!! I doubt if I will put it in the console again!

Proof that DS games don't translate to Wii

Mr. J. Bonner, amazon.co.uk
10 March 2009
  • Summary: After realising how big this game actually is I said "Is that it?? that can't be it??" it was! There's nothing much to this game, you could see everything there is to see in well under (half) an hour, I never wanted to come back to this game at all.

Boreing!!!!

Manda, amazon.co.uk
31 May 2008
  • Summary: I originaly thought that this game would be a solid addition to my games catelogue for the wii, but I was more than a little dissapointed. It is the same old thing over and over again,as previous comments have stated it all comes down to how quick you are, and unless you have speed on your side this game will reach a certain stage were you can go no further. In retrospect I wish i had saved my cash for another game!

Tedious

Mordros, amazon.co.uk
29 May 2008
  • Summary: I haven't played the DS Brain Training game, so this is to review Big Brain Academy purely on it's own merit. At first the game is fairly fun, as you learn how to play the mini games and try them all. However, after finishing each challenge on easy you come to realise that the basis of this game isn't so much to asses and improve your problem solving skills, but to measure how quickly you can click buttons.

Way, way too much chat to sit through

Rosey Lea, amazon.co.uk
27 April 2008
  • Summary: The brain training games themselves are quite fun and varied, but there's way too much written 'chat' to wade through each time you play. The instructions are very neat and concise, it's the blasted 'professor of the academy', a peanut like animation that goes on and on between the games.

Speed is the answer

Peter Gallant "Petergee", amazon.co.uk
24 March 2008
  • Summary: This is a game that tests your ability to answer very quickly - it is NOT a brain development game at all. If you take your time and get all the tests correct, you will not get a good score. Sorry found this rather repetative and crass - not worth the money. The DS Brain game is much superior to this!
