Summary: The games are fun - definitely mind stimulating - but the format is cumbersome - a lot of wasted time in between games. As you finish each mind game, this funny little professor guy awards you medals and praises you - but this takes up a lot of time and is impossible to skip - at least I haven't figured out how to yet. The games themselves are short so when you're ready to go on to the next one you're stuck listening to him babble away.
Summary: Item arrived quickly but was not as advertised. It was an Australian version, which does work on UK Wii thankfully. Good price Game is good and will keep my child entertained for some time, but may be too easy for some older children
Summary: I enjoy this game and play head to head with my partner, but there's only a small selection of games to play, without repeating the same game over and over. I think if this was for someone who wanted to keep their brain active then this is a good game for them, but as for children I could see it getting a little boring after a while of doing the same over and over again.
Summary: I guess I just expected more, it's a fun game, that's it, no cool thing that make you REALLY want to play it, but with friends it's a lot of fun :) It's kids-friendly and a lot of fun with the right people, but it doesn't have the same charm other Nintendo-titles have.
Summary: Big Brain Academy was a game I really wanted for the Wii but I held back on buying. This was due to the price tag attached (at the time £20.00) and whether or not I would get enough use out of it. Big Brain Academy is a game that has jumped on the brain training wagon. This game focuses on five different categories to train your brain: visualise, identify, compute, analyse and memorise.
Pros: Fun, activites are different
Cons: Gets quite boring quickly, is a little easy at times
Summary: ..I do so agree with another reviewer who complained about having to wade through endless screens of comments which you can't skip! The ability to cut those out would improve it hugely, but it's still good fun for all ages.
