5.0 out of 5 stars addictive!! 8 Mar 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
this is the best game of its type on the DS, and i have played / own them all!! Two daily tests to take, 5 categories, 5 games within each category, 9 stress tests and 9 bonus games too - its such excellent value for money - it will keep you busy for months!!

Oh, and its great fun too!!

im sure you wont be sorry if you buy this

5.0 out of 5 stars great fun! 20 Mar 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
i first bought this game for my phone and enjoyed it - i wasnt sure it was woth getting for ds aswell. However i'm so glad i did cos the gameplay is so much better. using the stylus, you get the full benefit. The games are certainely challenging and varied enough not to get bored, which makes the whole game great fun. If you want a change and something not so studious as brain and sight training i would reccommend this for all ages (I'm 45!)

5.0 out of 5 stars much more fun 28 April 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
So much more fun than the other brain training games. First of all lots of variety with loads more games to choose from. The original Brain Training can be a little boring and limited as A1 B2 C3 is not everyone's idea of fun. Best of all in the stress section is Animals with those nasty rats and spiders crawling over your screen as you inlock more games. Definite value for money with this one. Highly recommended to give it a go.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the best, but definitely not the worst 23 Feb 2008
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game (which I just picked up for the DS) is one of the many spawn of the surprisingly successful "Brain Training", in this case a clone produced by Ubisoft, who are a company that I have at least heard of.

The general format and style is really ripped straight from Brain Training: a quick graphable challenge intended to be done daily to show how much the game has improved your life; a number of puzzle-like mini-games (most of which are initially "locked") to "train" on in order to improve your score; a handful of non-"training" but presumably thematically similar "bonus" games; and a rather chatty guide character.

I'm going to start by mentioning what's bad: the game unlocks things based (apparently) on how much you play (fair enough), but unfortunately after playing through all the initially-available mini-games (all five of them) once, nothing is unlocked, so if you didn't like them much, too bad, you'll have to play them some more in order to access the other games. This also suffers somewhat from the same problem that often plagues touch-screen games: if your hand/eye coordination is a little off (or you have inscrutable handwriting) then some of the games just won't like you - but thankfully that doesn't apply to the initial set available to you.

The initial set of mini-games includes a simple visual logic game ("balance"), an annoying addition/subtraction game ("trout route"), a trivial but somewhat poorly controlled memory game ("traveling"), a cute little visual perception/count-the-whatever game ("ascending"), and an inexplicably-different stuff-dropping-down-the-screen game ("catching"). It's basically all drag-a-line or jab-to-select games of one kind or another, but they are more fun and less input-sensitive than Brain Training.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely a challenge 15 Dec 2008
By Fez
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Having played Brain Training and More Brain Training, Brain Challenge is much more demanding and certainly lives up to its name. The puzzles get more complex, so just when you think you've mastered one game it then pushes you further, definitely not monotonous. The scoring is quite tough and I still haven't got an A+ in anything yet. The stress games are quite interesting - you get an impatient officer shouting at you if you make a mistake - it's quite comical. I think the hardest thing to grasp when you first play this game is working out which screen to look at, some games only use the bottom one and some you are looking at the top screen and inputting below. Overall a challenge and now Brain Training seems quite monotonous and boring!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Brain Traing game for the DS 24 Jan 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Someone brought me this game for Christmas and I've been playing it since then. It's by far the best brain training game that there is for the DS. It has a really good variety of games which can all be played at three levels so that they become increasingly more difficult and maintain your interest. There are also bonus games such as Tangrams which add even more variety. I think that you need to take the increasing percentage improvement in your brain capacity with a pinch of salt though as I've sure this is not accurate or I'll soon be a genius!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Game but Cheaper on iPod Touch 10 Aug 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Great game which surprised me, however it is only £5.99 on the iTunes app store for the iPod touch. I would definitely recommend buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Try this different type of brain training 15 Aug 2009
By Abi V
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Having played the Dr Kawashima brain training games I was unsure if I needed another similar game, but recently caught out overseas without my DS I bought this game for my IPod Classic. I liked the look & features of the game but struggled with the controls on my IPod.
The DS version is great, it suits touch control more than wheel control! Also the stress tests (not featured on the IPod version) are really good fun & a little crazy. It also uses actual writing a lot less than the Dr Kawashima games which makes it less frustrating & more suitable for people with dubious handwriting & younger children.
I like the way you unlock mini-games as you go (makes it more addictive), & have strangely found than the relaxing games can actually be relaxing. Only thing I'm not keen on are the 2 trainers (Barbie & Ken I think?!), but you can just zoom through their waffle!
Great price too for a brain training game.
