4.0 out of 5 stars Not Riveting, but Entertaining March 17, 2011
By Verbose
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I've had this game for a little under a week now and I've enjoyed it. It's not a game I find myself wanting to play for a long period of time, but then it really isn't designed for that. The premise is that you will complete three exercises every day. You can play any of the exercises whenever you want, but you are recommended to play three specific exercises each day, and the choices change around a bit each day. Whenever you want, you can also take a test that will measure your current brain age to see if your regular exercises are paying off. If I don't choose to play extra exercises, I'm usually done for the day in under 15 minutes.

The games are cute, and they don't bore me, but neither would I consider them riveting. Once I've completed my three exercises, I'm usually ready to move on to something else. Note that I have only played in single player mode. I'm sure competing against somebody else would increase the entertainment factor. However, I don't really consider it a bad thing that I don't spend a ton of time playing the game. I do my daily brain exercises, and then I move on to one of the more physically active Kinect games that I find more entertaining.

I haven't had any real issues with the interface. When navigating menus, if you read the manual, it tells you it will not activate any buttons when your hands are close to your body. You move your hand around to where you want it, then push your hand in front of you a bit further to make the program activate the button. On the one hand, I often find myself forgetting to move my hand further out because the other programs I've played with don't require this.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this game March 22, 2011
By WindyW
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have been playing with this game for about 4 weeks now. At 62, I have been dealing with some cognitive issues for the past half-dozen years, and when I saw this game was released, I decided to buy an xbox 360 with kinect primarily to get this game. I am finding the game to be fun and highly therapeutic. I am thrilled with the progress I have made. In addition to the brain training, I also use it as a diagnostic tool providing some quantitative data to help me assess which nutritional approaches that I have been experimenting with are helpful. I do notice there are a few glitches in the games (that I hope will be fixed in future updates), but I don't feel they significantly detract from the value of the game. I notice that the three Kinect games I own do occasionally receive updates.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Brain Game March 2, 2011
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I'll start off by telling you to ignore the "professional" reviews from other sites telling you that this game is lackluster. I've been playing this game at least once a day since I've gotten it and I really find it to be a lot of fun and pretty interesting to boot. The only problem I have with it is that sometimes the Kinect controls don't work as well as they should in a game that requires nothing less than spot on precision to solve the truckload of mini games/puzzles that this title offers. 95% of the time you'll be fine but occasionally it just feels a bit more difficult than it should because of the control scheme. That being said, the controls are still pretty responsive, even more so than the early crop of Kinect titles.

This game has something for everyone and I think math junkies will really enjoy this game. I dig the variety of puzzles. Some require you to do things like pop a series of balloons that have numbers on them from lowest to highest while others will have you keeping Pac-Man and the Pooka from "Dig-Dug" away from a pack of ghost monsters which is a lot more difficult than you would think. The setup reminds me a lot of Wii Fit in how you have a calendar to stamp whenever you achieve your requirements and that kind of thing works well for a game of this type. If you let this game's charms take you in, you'll be checking your calendar regularly to see if you can lower your brain age.

Some of the puzzles are a bit unforgiving as well and the game may make some feel, let's face it, pretty stupid when the results are posted up but if you can take this game as a constructive way of bettering your mental reflexes, then I think you'd appreciate the effort that went into it. Multiplayer modes are present as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recovering from a stroke... August 29, 2012
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
My parents sent this to me right after I had a stroke at the age of 39. Interestingly enough, many of the challenges in this game are reflective of the exercises I do when I go to a top-notch rehab facility for therapy. I can definitely see an improvement in most of my deficiencies when using this game on kinect. Therapists should be using this if they are not already!! Fantastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars drdad June 23, 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a great game for people to build up mental ability. It has some of the same kinds of activities that neurologists specializing in the field of brain recovery use. It's just a lot more fun and a lot cheaper. As a doctor I give it two thumbs up.
