Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree
6 October 2011
Conclusion: The new features of the game are in no way able to make up for those left behind on its predecessor. User interface may be easier than ever, but even a little imagination never hurts. So while it makes for an alright game, there is no need to be stuck at home with it.

Summary: Parents need to know that this game makes kids think. And it's fun to boot! It's best experienced as a group (or with a larger group divided into teams), and is a good choice for multi-generational play and for those just getting into the Wii.

Conclusion: In the end, Wii Degree for the Nintendo Wii is a good solid rendition of the Brain titles from the Nintendo DS. The first outing on the Wii is solid and it has a well rounded approach that gives the user a very enjoyable experience.

It sounds promising, but despite its non-game moniker, it’s ultimately yet another mini-game collection--something that’s quickly outstaying...
Summary: Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree takes the same basic structure as the first Big Brain game, which appeared on the DS just over a year ago. It's essentially a sequel to the original game because it doesn't duplicate the games found on the DS, but instead replaces them with a collection of new...
Pros: Decent number of different games and difficulties to choose from, clean presentation, one of the few Wii games to make use of your Miis
Cons: Most multiplayer modes require passing the controller
