Big Brain Academy (DS)

 

Big Brain Academy is a good, budget-priced collection of brainteasing minigames.

Big Brain Academy

 

Big Brain Academy is the latest of Nintendo's titles claming to make you smarter by running you through minigames, hoping that games like this will appeal to a new crowd of non-gamers. Because their premises are so similar, Big Brain Academy is nearly...

Fun puzzles ; Sketchy pop-art style is appealing ; Easy to learn interface will appeal to both gamers and non-gamers

Only fifteen puzzles ; No extra games to keep your attention ; Games feel constantly rushed

It lacks replay value, but forms a good matched set with Brain Age.

A solid quiz-puzzler game for the whole family.

With only 15 different tests to play, Big Brain Academy can quickly get to be an exercise in just answering faster rather than having you brain participate in new activities. The game is a blast to play with for a little while, but it just does not...

Big Brain Academy Review

 

I remember the whole “edu-tainment” craze in games when I was younger. One of the more popular games that spearheaded the fervor was “Donkey Kong Jr. Math.” Nintendo took their popular ape and put him in a game where you did math problems. The big N...

In all, I can say that I enjoyed Big Brain Academy and feel it is a wonderful addition to the Brain Age-style games. Nintendo has really hit on a different market than the traditional gamers. Between Brain Age and, now, Big Brain Academy, Nintendo will...

The main game is divided into three modes- practice, test, and versus. Practice lets you take on a number of mini-games in five different categories, being Think, Identify, Computer, Analyze, and Memorize, each made up of things such as weighing...

Great premise; fun mini-games; multiplayer rocks

Can't track your progress thoroughly; rating system's open-and-shut

So how many of you have actually sat down and played a round of Brain Age? Nintendo really had a great idea going here with this game release, a simulation exercise that actually made you feel smarter as you played it, even if you brain age sat in the...

However, Big Brain Academy was not created to belittle your or my intelligence. It was designed to enhance it. It’s kind of like an IQ test that you can study for. There is a whole whack of mini-games that will challenge you in different mental...

If you want to improve your mental acuity - or are addicted to sudoku, opt for Brain Training. If you prefer short bursts of lightweight cerebral distraction then this is the one to get.

The colourful format and audio/visual activities are likely to hold more attraction for the younger set than Brain Training

Some of the activity concepts are difficult to grasp. There's no real depth; once the novelty has worn off the replay factor takes a dive

Still pretty good

Think, Think, Think with Big Brain Academy

 

I am a thief. I stole the think, think, think line from Steve Burns of Blues Clues fame. However, if you are thinking that Nintendo's Big Brain Academy on the same level as Blue and her friends, you are sadly mistaken.

Differing levels, quick play, great for all ages

Can be frustrating for avid gamers who try to test without practicing

Consumer review by:

Fun, but repetitive

 

The DS has been the focal point of Nintendo's many new brain-improving games. This is one of them.

Some Games are good, Time-waster

Gets boring, repetitive, Childish
