2.0 out of 5 stars Could be good 14 Feb 2011
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This game has great potential and certainly follows on well from the original DS version which was excellent. However the control system is a bit hit and miss, the software does not seem to utilise the Kinect properly as often you make a move which the games fails to respond to. At first I thought it might be me; I mean being overweight and well over 40 makes me an iffy choice for game reviewer, but the rest of the family seem to be having the same problem. A pity as this could of been a classic Kinect game.

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing 31 July 2011
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
To be honest we didn't buy this off Amazon but that isn't really the point! Having enjoyed the original brain training on DS we thought that on Kinect it would take it to the next step, and to be honest there were new games that do in fact train your brain!

However I can't say I have found the experience a pleasant one. For a start, the red and blue hands that help you navigate are either too twitchy and over sensitive or dead to the world. I have often made like a windmill in front of the Kinect just to get some response but to no avail.

The games also suffer the polar opposites - either too twitchy, no response or invent movements you haven't done.

This game is disappointing. The problems mean you get frustrated early in the game and so wish to switch off.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Game EVER.... Please read on....... 10 July 2012
By Sc0tt8
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is my first ever review for anything, so please read on...

This to me is the game ever manufactured & i salute Dr Kawasima. Dot't get me wrong, the game has some minor faults; but it's enjoyable, creative & does exactly what it's say's.... It trains the brain!

6 months ago, I needed my brain to be trained more than most people. I suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) from a fall from 30ft. My family we're told that i may not survive, or if I did, chances are i'd be brain damaged due to my CAT scans. I spent 7 weeks in hospital & my doctor told me on my discharge meeting i was a 'medical miracle'. After my hospital stint, I was required to attend a Neurological rehab unit. I was in the rehab unit for 6 months and I honestly don't think I would've finished it that quickly without Dr Kawashima's help.

My main difficulty has been cognitive skills, such as memory, multi-tasking, logic & math... All of which this game tries to improve. And it does, very successfully!

I've used this game every week since February & it's been amazing to watch my brain age decrease by almost a decade every month. This game has helped me get my life back on track & my best score is currently 30, I won't stop until i get in the 20s. Even then I will continue to use his game on a regular basis.

For anyone looking to increase their mental capacity or have suffered a similar injury to me BUY THIS GAME NOW!! If it was £200 you wouldn't regret it, never mind at this ludicrous price!!

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Really fun game, though each mini game is a bit short.

There are games where there is too many choices, leading to a movement of arms/legs will point to wrong answer before you even reach the right answer.

Everyone (family and friends) who played all said after a while brain age doesnt get any lower and the age score is always 20+ what our actual age is! So if you might take offense in the game telling you have the brain of a 40 year old when you are just 20, it would be frustrating to try to improve your score over and over again to no avail.

Like I said, many of the times, even when I know the correct answer, my arm would highlight another answer before I reach the correct one (think of a clock, if my arm starts at 2pm, to reach 4pm I must pass by 3pm - if 3pm is highlighted before 4pm, the game thinks thats your answer!) This is the most annoying thing for me.

Recommend the game, but the guys could put more effort into making it a smoother kinect experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars Overall Good Game 21 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
The game is not bad at all. It helps the brain train all the parts of the body.
As a starter, you get mainly C and D, an A+ happened just once. But it is a good think at the end since you work harder to get better results.
For the price and the delivery time on AMAZON I could give a five stars. I live in Italy and got the game on time. Happy for the quality of the service.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poorly Implemented for Kinect 10 Feb 2012
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
There are a couple of major issues with this game.

Firstly, the Kinect detection on this game is unreliable to say the least. Some of the puzzles work ok, but on some of them the Kinect fails to detect the position your arms are in and so you score a big fat zero.

Secondly, certain puzzles have no time gap between each one, so you don't have time to move your arms back to the centre before the next puzzle starts, so unless the answer is the same (and this does happen) you are looking at another zero score.

Having said that, if you don't use the daily workout option (where you have no choice over the puzzles you are given) and just select the puzzles that do work well, there is some fun to be had.
