    Fairly good budget-priced title

    Rated on May 06, 2007 by blackrytonite

    After all of the negativity surrounding video games, and how many think that they'll rot a person's brain, the irony of Brain Age is very interesting indeed. Nintendo decided to bring something new t...

    Addictive and fun

    Rated on July 15, 2006 by Toros73

    When I first heard of this game coming to the DS I wasn't quite sure what to think. It looked ambitious and promising, so I gave it a try. After 15 minutes of playing I knew I made a good choice. M...

    There is no real proof that this will actually train your brain, but at a budget price, it's overall worth a try.

    The new hype is that video games can make you fit, but there is also one that video games can make you smarter. Is that true? Well, there isn't really any real convincing proof that this can train you...

    sucked. i traded it in and was both surprised and thrilled to see that amazon.com gave me six bucks for it. (game trader wanted to give me a dollar 95, which still would have been a deal for this crap...

    It's fun, it's amusing, it's challenging--but, the best part is, it WORKS!

    Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day really is all its creator, Japanese neurologist Ryuta Kawashima, declares it to be. It's quirky, fun, challenging, and, most importantly, it induces menta...

    Addictive, fun, and a game you can actually learn something from!

    Have you ever noticed that at the end of a long day, you feel worn out, especially if your day consists of sitting in front of a computer screen clacking the keys or sitting in classroom after classro...

    Even though from my review deck it would seem like I don't like the game, I did, a lot. It challenges your brain with some fun and addictive games. But just like the reason I didn't like AC:WW, it bec...

    Addicting and Easy to Learn. Good variation will make sure that each player will both master some and be challenged.

    As every major review has said, this is not a game in the true sense of the word. At the core of this pak is the goal of getting players to score a low (low is good) “brain age” based on the same con...

    A good game that can become a little repetative over time.

    Rated on August 30, 2009 by Tiny0fairy

    This game is a well written and constructed game that easy to navigate and to understand. My family received this game as a collective Christmas present last year, we all leapt into it and created p...

    While casual gamers will go nuts over this, the hardcore will be dissapointed in the end.

    Brain Age seemed like a really good idea at the time. An educational videogame that let you do simple brain exercises to keep your noggin thinking. And while it's fun for a few months, you'll end up n...
