This a whole new way to use a game console
on 17 July 2007
OK - so I am behind. I never played the original brain training, and I only just bought my DS. I am 32. I have got tired of consoles and games. I recently played on my friends PS3, and yeah the graphics are great, but the gameplay on the games is the same old stuff it has been for the last 10 years.
Nintendo are changing all that. Just as they did back in the say of Game and Watch. Not only is the DS an innovative format with the stylus and two screens, but they are getting games released that will change gaming forever.
I love the way this game interacts with you. It keeps a track of real time, and is a genuine training assistant. If you log on at 11.50pm he says, my it's late, you know sleeping is good for you, if you come back day after day he congratualtes you. It is a very small detail, but it just makes the whole thing very personal.
The format works really well. Nice touches like for left-handed people it flips the whole thing round so you can easily play it.
The games are not graphical wonders, they are very clever and functional. They stretch you brain, just as they are supposed to, and you will find yourself competing with your personal bests to improve.
I haven't explored the whole of this game yet, as you keep earning extra features the more you play.
I congratulate Nintendo for bring genuinely innovates games and platforms out - and joy it is selling more consoles and games!
Buy this game as soon as possible.
