3.0 out of 5 stars Great Idea - Poor Implementation December 16, 2006
Edition:Beta
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Brain Boost Gamma Wave is a mind improving game specifically aimed at improving your memory. As I definitely want a better memory, I began playing right away.

I play Brain Age and Big Brain Academy. Both give you daily training, daily testing, and graphics that help you track your progress. Brain Boost takes a different attitude. They try to turn this into a "game" complete with a plot. There is a robot who lost his memory disc. You're wandering around a planet finding it. You have challenges to face in order to get it back.

To be honest, plots in games are usually silly - who really worried why Mario was stomping on mushrooms and enemies? But in this case it interferes with the gameplay. When you play these brain training games, you want to jump into them for 10 minutes, work on your tasks, and know how you did. Scenes with robots or inane dialogue don't really matter to anybody who bought this game and only mean you have to click through several pages to get to the game itself.

All of these game styles rely on a few "mini-games". In this one, you have five different memory games. In one, you're shown a face, then have to choose the match from four faces. Next, you're shown a number and have to choose it from four numbers. Third, you're shown a combination of colored dots then have to choose it from four colored dot combos. Fourth, you're shown a series of pictures (all at once on a board) and have to choose which one changes. Finally, you're shown a series of pictures (one at a time) and then are presented with a collection of images to say which one doesn't belong.

The challenges are in essence the exact same thing. It's just one of the training items, shown to you again.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor Man's Brain Academy January 9, 2007
Edition:Beta
Except I don't know that it is actually cheaper. Brain Age and Brain Academy are much better games with much more variety. The story that is offered up doesn't add anything to it. There are only four different types of challenges (remembering a sequence of pictures shown, counting how many bouncing balls, adding several numbers to find the sum, and finding the two identical pictures among a group of singles). While they are different than the challenges found in the other two games I mentioned, they lose their appeal. There are four levels of difficulty for each game. They could definitely have a better way to keep track of your progress and your improvement. I haven't tried the Gamma Wave version of Brain Boost, but it looks to be as simple and lackluster.

I'd skip this game and opt for the Brain Age and/or Brain Academy! I may have rated it three stars, but considering these games are available, it can't compete.

1.0 out of 5 stars maybe for kids March 25, 2007
Edition:Beta
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game becasue I love brain age and was looking for more of the same. I didn't find it here. Maybe ok for kids, but not the same crowd as brain age. Games are too easy, too few, and too silly.

3.0 out of 5 stars If you are tired of Brain Age and Big Brain... March 16, 2007
Edition:Beta
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
If you are tired of Brain Age and Big Brain Academy, then you might find that thie will help fill your time a little bit too. Don't expect this to live up to both of those, but it is a cute little game, and I've gotten some fun out of it.

Basically, it's got five mini games (I never bothered playing with the story parts) to help boost your memory. I don't think it has boosted my memory, but it's a great distraction when I'm sitting in a waiting room bored out of my skull.
