What Gamespot Users have to say about Brain Challenge

  • User Rating 6

    Brain Challenge probably isn't the best "brain training" title out there but still does well.

    Rated on June 16, 2008 by Thorpe89

    Clearly with the success of the Brain Age titles on Nintendo DS, more and more companies are wanting to use the "brain training" concept and try to do it successfully. Brain Challenge doesn't do that ...

    Brain Challenge is definitely the answer to Brain age and does a good job of it.

    Brain Challenge is definitely a very challenging and fun family experience. The challenges are basically set up into categories such as Memorization, Mathematics, etc. The game truly is challenging an...

    Afraid of knowing how stupid you are? Then don't play this.

    Rated on August 30, 2008 by wildamnesia

    I thought I was pretty smart until I played this and saw my average score show up on the Xbox Live leaderboard at place 50,567. That's extremely depressing knowing there are 50,000 gamers out there s...

    Though fairly enjoyable, this is just not as good as brain training.

    Rated on November 25, 2008 by Bazza28

    I like to give ratings to things. Not only games, also pictures, women and... myself.Like how smart am I, my gaming skills, looks :-p and of course my intelligence. In the time I owned a ds, I used to...

    A rip-off of the 'Brain Age' games for the DS.

    Rated on February 06, 2009 by Elite29

    When I first started playing 'Brain Challenge' I liked it quite a bit. It was a fun game and I liked to see my brain 'level-up' in the game and was addicting. After awhile, however, the game got repet...

    <br /> The best and most elaborate Brain Trainer. There's something here for everyone!

    Rated on March 08, 2008 by Mahasukh

    Sofar I've played only Dr Kawashima's 'Brain Training' and 'More Brain Training'. The games are great, but fairly limited. After a while I realised there's only some 10-12 challenges in there, and in ...

    A fun little knock off of Big Brain Academy that doesn't compare to a game that uses a touch screen or Wiimote .

    Rated on March 12, 2008 by gord_mose

    If you've spent any time with Brain Age or Big Brain Academy, you are well versed in the brain games that Nintendo has made very popular and profitable. Many knock offs have appeared on the DS and oth...

    Brain Challenge: Stretch those Gray & White Muscles

    Rated on March 28, 2008 by michaelsdad

    Since I only own a 360 I'm not familiar with Brain Age and other brain-focused games on other platforms, so I lack have any frame of reference for comparison to those games. What I can say is that Br...

    I found this game to be fairly interesting and stimulating. Would like to see it offered at 400 MS Points though!

    Rated on March 26, 2008 by thegodtwon

    I found this game to be fairly interesting and stimulating. I would like to see it offered at 400 MS Points however. The combination of brain teasing puzzles and fast paced brain exercises make for a ...
