Summary: My wife and I have enjoyed this game. Plenty of puzzles to work out your mind with logic, memory, math, pattern recognition, etc. I wish that it had more on the coaching side of things or had the option to simply tutor through difficult puzzles until one gets faster and more proficient. It would also be nice if the program would explain the crux of different puzzles. Oh well, perhaps with the next version.
Summary: Fun! Purchased the game for my wife, who has MS, so she could exercise her brain and work on some specific symptoms she has been suffering with regarding her memory. We like it so far. It's been interesting to see which games she has been improving on and which still give her trouble.
Summary: ordered this game because it looked like a good value in mental exercise. after a couple of weeks playing, i love it. i am over 40 and was looking to get/stay sharper. this game trains me to think more logically, more quickly. gameplay starts out easy enough to get used to the questions. you can dive right in. difficulty increases as you advance.
Summary: I bought this game for my mom and myself. I am interested in brain building games, but I found online subscriptions inconvenient because I often lost interest after a few months. I figured for the price, this was a good investment. Overall, I do like it. It is challenging enough. The games can seem deceptively simple. I find them interesting. However, the game can be a little stressful because you don't have a lot of time to work things out.
Summary: A challenge to keep you active and awaken a sleeping brain. You might just surprise yourself and realize you know more than you thought....or find that you need to re-awaken your brain to some subjects.
Summary: My parents have a Wii that they don't use probably enough. They are retired (70+). My mom loves word games and puzzles and getting my dad to play is like pulling teeth. They reported back a big thumbs up on this game. So consider this review a thumbs up from the older retired crowd.
Summary: I really enjoyed this game because it allowed to stretch my brain a little bit. Some of the games or tests were outside of normal thinking. I really had to work hard at some of the activities.
Summary: Mensa Academy on Wii has a good set of tests and puzzles. Mensa Academy does not have as much of the fun element that makes Big Brain Academy so enjoyable, but I have enjoyed the tests set in Mensa Academy, and the challenge of improving my score.
