Product Description

Brain Age is back with all-new devilishly difficult brain-training exercises designed by world-famous brain researcher Dr. Ryuta Kawashima. The modern mind has numerous devices to stay connected (e.g. laptops, smart phones, tablets), and these distractions have led to an information overload making it difficult to stay focused on specific tasks. Brain AgeTM: Concentration Training offers newly designed training exercises to combat this information addiction. By spending at least five minutes a day, these exercises will challenge players with activities to help improve their concentration skills and the ability to access their short term memory. The new Devilish Training exercises dynamically increase or decrease in difficulty based on your real-time results to help consistently train players at the limit of their abilities. Beyond the Devilish Training, there are additional new and classic puzzles for every purpose, whether to challenge one’s concentration or math skills or provide relaxation activities to give the brain a break.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Brain Age: Concentration Training is well-named. The focal point of the latest in Nintendo's famous brain-training series is specifically designed to test--and strengthen--your focus and ability to concentrate, as well as to remember useful information on a short-term basis. The game refers to this as "working memory." And right off the bat, you are thrown into the first exercise of the game's core content: Devilish Training.

Rather than simply ask you to do simple addition and subtraction problems (see the previous titles' Calculations x 20), "Devilish Calculations" challenges you to remember the answers to previously-asked problems. First off, it asks you to remember the previous problem's answer; then, the answers from two problems ago. Doing well? It'll get harder. The speed increases. Then, you'll have to remember three problems ago, which the game calls "3-Back." Still doing well? Then, "4-Back." Then, "5-Back." Can you focus well enough to do this? How about for five solid minutes?

Devilish Training actually offers eight separate exercises. They test your focus using your arithmetic skills (or lack thereof), your photographic memory, your ability to track movement, your ability to remember words or shapes, and quite a bit more. Each one of these exercises will continue to get harder as you succeed. You'll eventually reach a point where you fail, and possibly even get demoted to a previous level. That's okay, the game says, because Devilish Training is supposed to test you at your absolute limit. Your skills, it explains, won't grow if you aren't being tested at the limit of your ability!

After 5 minutes go by and your current round ends, the exercise is suspended; you can continue on the following day from where you left off.

5.0 out of 5 stars A step up from the original June 11, 2013
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been playing this game for 42 days now, according to the attendance tracker. While the 3D settings aren't really necessary, the menus in between games can be viewed in 3D mode.

The more you play, the more different games unlock. The three categories are: Devilish Training, Supplemental Training and Brain Training. A good percentage of the games can be found in prior editions. They are very challenging and addicting as well.

The only thing I don't care for is Doctor K. He can be a little harsh at times.

My favorite games are: Devilish Pairs, Majong Solitaire, Change Maker, and Word Attack. I highly recommend this game to improve your mental sharpness and working memory. I definitely notice improvement in my daily life: remembering where I put my keys, what I need to buy at the grocery etc.

Fun for kids and adults!

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Honestly, there have been so many games that have defined the Nintendo DS for young and old gamers alike. Brain Age was definitely a game changer in 2005 when it came out. It started to show gamers could go for more of a mental-stimulating challenge that was worth the while. It also started to show that Nintendo was going to appeal to older gamers, by testing their memory and how well people can deal with everyday activities. The game started the ball for games like Big Brain Academy, and others to start showing that games can be stimulating and deliver a challenge that was more for fun and excitement. Well, with the Nintendo 3DS, the idea was to take it to another level. Well, they didn't actually do it, but they did make a very exciting package.

Brain Age: Concentration Training for the Nintendo 3DS, doesn't add anything outrageous for new gamers to the addictive puzzling mental games from before, but stays very relevant to what made the game so strong in the first place, by making sure you stay sharp and swift on your mind. The game features challenges that make it worth the while. Graphically, you do not get much from the game, but a simple setup, where you have to score your way to the youngest brain age as possible. The control handles very well, as you have to be responsive and easy to master with each of the challenges. The game features mini-challenges that are returning from before like piano player, low to high, where you have to tap with your stylus pen as fast as possible the numbers from smallest to largest value, as well as classic games like calculations x 20 & 100 where you have memorize and rapidly answer basic math problems.

There are some new challenges called devilish challenges to the mix here in the new Brain Age game.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good game but annoying Dr. character May 16, 2014
I bought this game hoping that it would improve my memory and concentration and overall I find it more annoying than helpful. The Dr. Kawashama character who appears as a talking head is the primary issue I have with the game. The premise of the game is that you spend 5 minutes of training a day but that 5 minutes is actually around 15-20 due to all the stupid talking you must endure from the Dr (holding down the stylus to fast forward helps some but not much) . First, when you turn on the game each day you must endure a brain training tip almost every time. When you choose Devilish Training and open one of the games you must sit around and hear how you did last time and between each level you must hear the same speech every time “you scored greater than 85% going down a level blah blah blah.” After playing the game for 3 months I get the point already and don’t need to hear this between each level! If you play with the volume on and do something wrong the Dr. will start making stupid comments at that point as well like “oh you almost got it” or something similar. While playing any game you must look at the Dr.s huge head in the background the entire time, it is just so annoying.

Moving beyond the Dr.s annoyance to the actual game I find that this version doesn’t do much better than any of the past Brain Ages when it comes to recognition of what you are writing or saying. If you write a lowercase g, p, or q while doing Word Attack the game does not recognize it 99% of the time. I once spent over 2 minutes just getting it to recognize an absolutely perfectly written p. While doing number games like Calculations x 20 half the time it does not recognize the numbers you are writing…you might write a 1 and it somehow picks it up as 24 or something similarly ridiculous.
