    A no-brainer

    I’m not entirely sure whether I can call a game like Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day a video game. Its graphics are hardly groundbreaking, its audios are almost monotonous, and its core gameplay involves rea... Read Full Review

    a very interesting game

    The brain age game is an extremely easy to use game. The entire game is used with the touch screen and microphone. various parts of the game confuse the game like the way you write your 4's and 9's. the stroop test which... Read Full Review

    Another in a long line of innovative, but not great titles for the Nintendo DS

    Brain Age on the Nintendo DS is probably one of the most original titles to hit the system. I say this because it has been out for not even half a year and it has already spawned wannabe Brain Age games on the handheld s... Read Full Review

    A moderately entertaining game not quite worth the already budget priced 19.99

    The game is innovative and neat to show-off to friends and family but it lacks staying power. I shouldn't technically call it a game neither. Brain Age is a brain training tool that may or may not actually benefit yo... Read Full Review

    4 Going On 40

    Brain Age is a solid (and cheap!) marriage of education and gameplay

    Video games and education never really got along together. You know, we’d try to arrange playdates, but it’d always end up with the games sitting on the couch eating cheetos and forcing the education to do his homework f... Read Full Review

    Edutainment that's actually fun!? No way!

    In the past, Edutainment genre titles usually had to do with learning how to count with Elmo from Sesame Street. Other titles were just crappy games with famous characters like Mario or Sonic. Get ready for this: there's... Read Full Review
