Summary: "Good, but not Great" This game is a must have for younger kids, my 8yo triplets simply love it; and anything that challenges, or improves, thier mind is wonderful in my book! And as a 40yo, I like it too; I use it as my morning "Brain Calisthenics", every day with my coffee before work.
Summary: As an adult player, I found BIG BRAIN ACADEMY to be fun and I do return to play it - to get a better grade. For me, however, it does not have the variety I would have hoped for. It also has way too much filler listening to a cartoon professor who repeats himself.
Summary: The concept of Big Brain Academy is a good one. Perform a set of exercises to stimulate your brain and improve its abilities. This game first came out on the Nintendo DS, after the success of Brain Age. The way you do the exercises is with a set of colorful mini-games.
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...
Summary: After playing the DS version of Big Brain, I was really looking forward to playing this on our new Wii! However, I think for more than double the price of the DS version, this could really have been better. 1) The games don't seem as fun or challenging for the most part.
Summary: If you've ever played any of the brain training games for the Nintendo DS, chances are you know how much fun exercising your mind can be. This game, which is a sequel to Big Brain Academy on the DS, lacks the lasting appeal of its predecessor, however.

Summary: With all the research coming out about an active brain staying sharp, it's no surprise that the Wii now sports a brain training game of its very own. Unfortunately, it's just not as great as it should be.
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
