It was only a matter of time before someone took the idea of Big Brain Academy and decided to deliver it to a whole new audience. Midway's latest PSP title...

Hot Brain Review


Your head is on fire which means you must be playing Hot Brain for PSP from Midway. Hot Brain is another train your brain game that takes what Brain ...

As brain games go Hot Brain is okay, but the PSP’s control scheme and load times really hurt it. The cut scenes and voice acting definitely beat what Brain Age and Big Brain Academy offer on the Nintendo DS, but after you have seen these scenes a few...

Hot Brain


You've gotta' hand it to Nintendo – if it wasn't for them, the videogame industry might actually have to come up with its own ideas. Thanks to Nintendo, we've seen trends dating all the way back to the 8-Bit era (when Nintendo took platformers and made...

Good, original puzzles that are much more fun than those in Brain Age ; Fred Willard

Simplistic presentation be damned - this is a PSP game so you've gotta' have load times ; The science behind Hot Brain is obviously broken ; Even in spite of Fred Willard, Dr. Warmer somehow has LESS personality than the silent, floating, disembodied...

This may well be the best Brain Age-style game the PSP ever gets, but it still doesn't quite measure up to the instant accessibility of Brain Age. PSP owners looking to flex their cognitive skills may enjoy this game in short bursts, but the load times...

Hot Brain Sony PSP Review


The presence of Fred "The Man" Willard helps tremendously; engaging single-player mode and somewhat fun multiplayer

Some puzzles get old a little quickly; more variety would've been nice; basic design

The brain training games have taken off, ever since the release of the mega-successful Brain Age and Big Brain Academy games from Nintendo. Now everyone wants to try to make you a smarter person, whether you want to accept it or not. Midway has decided...

Hot Brain


I have been waiting for a good brain training game to come out on the PSP since Brain Age debuted on the Nintendo DS. Little did I realize it would just be a doppelganger with nothing new to add. Don't get me wrong, there are a lot of worthy things in...

Work your brain on the go.

There is a multiplayer mode over ad hoc for up to 4 players, so you can get together with your friends and see who the biggest smart-ass is. The competitive features such as Brain Race which allows gamers to see who can solve puzzles the fastest or...

Hot Brain Review


Fred Willard makes brains burst into flame.

Overall, Hot Brain manages to stand out in an overcrowded genre due to its charm. Having Willard on board definitely makes a difference, as his goofiness fits right in with Dr. Warmth. The variety of puzzles and difficulty levels make a big impact as...

Hot Brain


Take that thermometer out of your ear. Midway has a better way to measure your brain's temperature.

Challenges are pretty fun for the most part; the multiplayer mode adds a bit of replay value

Not enough content; slogging through the easy puzzles; not much value for money; Fred Willard is wasted

[Gamers' Day 2007] Toasty Grey Matter


We take Hot Brain for a quick spin to see just how many brain cells we've killed.

Alas, we'll have to wait a little longer to find out, though the game does ship next month. When it does arrive, you'll be quizzed daily on how "hot" (read: accurate and firing on all cylinders) your brain is, and can track that over the course of days...
