Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day


Unlocking all the tests, Slowly whittling down your age to 20, Passing this off to friends

Relearning how to write and speak, Some of the tests are boring, Scoring 20 years older than your age

Get sharp with this fun, smart game for families.


Parents need to know that this educational game asks players to do math problems, read out loud, count syllables in passages, and memorize numbers and their location on the screen. Since math calculations are tested, kids need to know their...

Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day!


I must admit when I first looked at Brain Age I was thinking to myself, "You've got to be kidding me!" After playing I can't help but think of the saying "don't judge a book by its cover." Brain Age may seem silly and even perhaps a little dorky at...

Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day


Steroids for your noggin'.

Quick and fun challenges ; Noticeable results ; The floating head of Ryuta Kawashima

Probably won't give off the kind of satisfaction marathon gamers expect ; Plain visuals and sound

I haven't played BBA, but I've heard that it has a lot more activities, can be played for more than just a few minutes per day, and has far superior multiplayer features.

Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day


Can this simple DS game keep your brain forever young?

A game anyone can approach; easy to fit into your schedule; may make you feel smarter

Only works in short bursts; uncertain lasting appeal; may not actually make you smarter

Brain Age: : Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day Nintendo DS Review


The other thing that helps the game's fun-factor is just how natural and seamless it feels. When speaking the colors for the brain-age check I never once had an issue with speech recognition. It also always recognized my written numbers, no matter how...

Sudoku implementation is fanastic

Questionable fun factor and questionable educational value

Nintendo's Brain Training (Brain Age here in the US) has been such a big hit in Japan that it actually kick-started an entire genre of educational and self-improvement software. Two million copies sold and about a half-dozen spin-offs/copy-cats later,...
