This game is apparently trying to turn you into a scholar and I liked the concept. It is a good brain exercise game. You can play this game in multi player mode and test your abilities against other players. A good game. Read full review »

The Big Brain Academy is a fantastic game for all to try. It consists of a series of quizzes, similar to what you will see on processing tests administered by Psychologists. I enjoyed comparing them to the paper tests I have seen for so many years. Plus, this was my chance to take one instead of... Read full review »

Pros Fun To Play
Cons none

I enjoy this game more than my husband.  But I am more for the thinking games, while he is more about the sports and action games.  I like the different challenges, however, after a while they seem repetitive and boring. Read full review »

This is a great game to play if it is a rainy day outside and want some family bonding time. With the MC in it, it was very easy to learn the instructions and all of the mini games to play. All of the mini games are very entertaining and do not get boring at all. I like how there are all different... Read full review »

My husband told me for Mother's Day to go to the video game store and pick out a new game for my Nintendo Wii.

Pros Good for all ages Educational
Cons The moderator guy is annoying

So when you first sit down and watch someone else play this game, it honestly looks rather boring. But then you actually get to play it, and the competitive spirit takes over. It is then that you realize this game is a ton of fun. Also the motions on the Wii are not complicated at all, so it is a... Read full review »

Cussing at the Cursor

Pros 15 decent fun educational games.
Cons You have to use the Wii cursor. Not a physically active Wii game.
Recommended it? No

I bought this expecting my kids to have a fun, active learning experience with our new Wii. The problem with this game is that relies exclusively on the Wii cursor -- quite possibly the most lame technology existing today, surpassed easily by the pencil. The handheld control itself, which... Read full review »

This is a sequel of sorts to the DS Big Brain game. I had wanted to play the game, but I didn't own a DS. After reading a bit on this game, I decided to buy it without ever playing it. I was very pleased with my purchase.

Although Big Brain Academy for the DS was overshadowed by Brain Age, it was still a fun little game and for $20, the price was just right.

What's up with Nintendo charging full price for the Wii versions of DS games? First Cooking Mama and now Big Brain Academy?
