Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

After training your brain with More Brain Training from Dr Kawashima: How old is your brain? you can now sharpen your Focus Power with Sight Training. Fast, fun activities and quick-play sports challenges give eyes the challenging workout they need.

Sight Training has you sharpen the five aspects of your Focus Ability by giving yours eyes a daily workout with fun and fast activities as well as quick play sports challenges. It includes ten Focus Ability exercises and eight Sports Training exercises. Sight Training focuses on daily training with graphs tracking daily progress for up to four users. You are rewarded an Eye Age, measured according to your strengths in the different Focus Abilities, which can ultimately be bought down to 20 years.

Product Description

Put your Eye Power to work for you. Sight Training: Enjoy Exercising And Relaxing Your Eyes for Nintendo DS gives your pupils a workout with fun and fast activities. If you have just a few minutes, you can complete a training session in the blink of an eye. Through ten Core Training exercises, which focus on such everyday functions as Hand-Eye Coordination and Eye Movement, Sight Training poses identification and recognition challenges on the DS's two screens and then asks you to tap the right answers on the Touch Screen. Based on your answers, Sight Training gives you an Eye Age - much like the Brain Age of the Brain Training series - to determine the DS Age of your vision. The software charts your progress as you train toward the ultimate in-game Eye Age of 20. The activities in Sight Training succeed in being both simple yet challenging. In Box Track, a ball is placed in one of three boxes on the Touch Screen. The challenge is to follow the box with the ball in it as the three are shuffled rapidly on the screen. You then tap the box you think has the ball. The exercise Number Tap calls on the user to match the number shown on the top screen to its counterpart in a grid of 20 numbers on the Touch Screen. Sight Training also features eight Sports Training exercises. These activities take the principles applied in the Eye Power exercises and put them into familiar athletic scenarios. Boxing, for example, puts you in the ring with a trainer who's holding two target mitts. You need to tap the centre of the target before the sparring partner moves it. After training for a certain amount of time, the game will automatically switch to a relaxation mode, in which a soothing voice will guide you through a set of Eye Relaxation exercises.

5.0 out of 5 stars Challenging and fun. 26 Nov 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I've only had this game a couple of days but am enjoying it so far. The tests are quite challenging but will hopefully get easier with practice. The format is simmilar to that of Brain Training in that doing well in one test rewards you with the option of undertaking that same test at a "hard" level and also unlocks additional exercises. Graphs and best scores are recorded so that you can plot your progress.

The sports exercises are fun, especially the table tennis (the only additional game I've been rewarded with to date). The games are short but you can repeat them as many times as you like (tho' only your first result of the day will be recorded).

Overall, if you like the Brain Training series then I'd guess there's a good chance you'll like this.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Yes I agree the ultimate purpose of Brain Training was to train the brain but some of the tasks were tedious and repetitive.

With Sight Training however the fun element is re-introduced. Not only is the game overall a lot more captivating - revamp of menu styles/narration etc. but the mini games are ones you may have been brought with maybe at school, so that sense of nostalgia is there, the difficulty levels are great to lessen the repetition and there's dozens of mini games that eventually become available after completing tasks. For me the game itself was the improvement from the Brain Training series, definately worth looking into, I have more intentions at this stage of going back to it than I did with the Brain Training series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Innovative and highly recommended! 9 Jan 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I received a DS lite for Christmas and Sight Training was the second game I got for it. (The first being more Brain training).
I defy anyone not to enjoy using this great little collection of programs, particularly the sports games. I am unsure as to whether using Sight Training actually improves your eyesight but there is much fun to be had trying to lower your eye age in a similar way to trying to achieve a lower brain age in Brain Training.
The different exercises involve tracking moving objects using your eyes and using the stylus to tap objects on the screen. Others test your peripheral vision by flashing symbols in different parts of both screens and then asking you to recall what they were or indicate where they appeared. Your progress in daily tests is recorded and then plotted on graphs which can be compared with your friend's profiles. The more you play the more games are unlocked.
Overall, this title represents excellent value for money and is one to be enjoyed by people of every age.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good 3 Jan 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I enjoyed Doctor Kawishma brain training and sight training was made by the same makers so i got it. I'd say the science is abit more firm than brain training and i believe it does help your eyes. The games are alot of fun (i like the sports games the best) and challenging! One of the good features of this game is that it gives you a recomneded (bad speller) training programme which helps you improve your weak points. I have to agree with the other reviews, the narator isn't that good as he repeats himself time and time again and mostly states the obvious. For thoughs of you that aren't familiar with brain training or that type of game made by tough generations you do your workout daily and when you've finished your first minigame you but a stamp on the date. As you collect more stamps more games become available or you can play the games you've already unlocked in a different style or you can unlock a special feature like i can now do the eye relaxation exercise at any time. Speaking of the eye relaxation exercises they do become a bit annoying as when you've completed todays recomened training you have to do it (i think you can quit) but whats more annoying is that when your doing custom training (you can play on any game which you've unclocked) if you've done alot of it it stops you right in the middle and asks if you want to do eye relaxation, i tap skip and it says lets call it a day and takes me right back to the main menu where i've got to go into my profile and listen to the welcome speech. But all the same its really good fun and thoughs who played Brain Training and enjoyed it will certainly like this

3.0 out of 5 stars Still the same old pseudo scientific jargon 6 April 2008
By Bob TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
It is great fun but I do wish I could turn of all the chat which is very irrelevant. I suppose they had to think of a new title but this is more brain training 3. Why do all these games have an obsession for speed, surely they could have some puzzles that did not only rely on speed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loads and loads of fun... 5 Dec 2010
By AlexKrycek TOP 500 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is so much fun! I bought this for my wife and she hasn't stopped using it. The game is so addictive!

There are various exercises which are all aimed at working out your "eyesight age" - dependant on how well you score in the game itself. The games are mixed and varied. You have to do well to unlock other features within the game - hence why this game is so addictive. I would disagree with other reviewers who say the games are repetitive.

There is an excercise where you can rest your eyes - and this bit is boring!

Not only is it suitable for children , but everyone can take part, and you do feel as if you are training your eyes - albeit I am not convinced it actually does.

Loads of fun - highly recommended!
