Summary: I got this for my 4 year old son. he's a special needs child and loves to play the wii. the game is too advanced for him, and he needs help. i get migraines and have a hard time helping him with it. the game is based on response time to the answers instead of on the actual answer.
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: 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: "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: 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: Its a fine game. The mini games are very basic--matching, memorizing, identifying, etc.--and the difficulty is changed by differing the number of objects and the speed of the game. The graphics are old school, But entertaining. I have two complaints though: 1- The game is not intuitive.
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.
