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...

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.

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

Nintendo's brain game is super addictive and worth buying.

Brain Age is a good game, but it's not an amazing one. I'm not exactly doing back flips over it, but I always have the desire to reach for it every day. It has a special addictive quality, and the inclusion of Sudoku pushes it to must buy status.

I have lowered my Brain Age considerably since I started. I still haven't hit the magic 20 and I have no idea if I'm actually getting any smarter, however I am learning the tricks needed to combat these particular puzzles

The slogan for Brain Age is: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day. I know it sounds like work, but this is way more fun than flossing. It's like playing a bunch of puzzle-based mini-games. As long as you still have the capacity to learn, you will get...
