4.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable, 14 Aug. 2006
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Big Brain Academy (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
I disagree with the previous reviewer who thinks that this game is more suitable for under 10s and not for adults. I recently bought a DS to take on holiday with a group of mates (all in our twenties and thirties) and this game proved to be a massive winner with everyone. There are five categories (think, identify, memorise, calculate and analyse) and each category has three individual and varied challange games. The games are good because they don't only rely on mathematics but require a variety of skills and an all round intelligence is required togain a good overall score. The games may appear simple at first but get deceptively tricky as you get deeper into the game and the time limit makes even the coolest heads panic. Getting a top score requires patience, practice and no little skill and getting a good score allows significant bragging rights to fellow gamers. Getting a poor score can be humiliating and lead to a burning need to play again and prove to everyone that you're not as stupid as the game implies.
