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.Read more ›
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.
Good: replay ability is very high. Lots of games and levels. Can and does totally transfer to every other part of your life. I had TBI (brain injury) and bought a membership to lumosity.com for like four times the price and this blows that website away.
Bad: the game is very very slow. Menu takes forever to load, reviews and game changes take four times as long a they should, which gets ever more frustrating as your ability will increase to multitask as process data. I sometimes don't play because of the time it takes to do one thing. Don't even think about playing with friends unless your having a sleep over and want them to get bored and leave...
Ugly: the scripting and feedback is insulting and uses negative reinforcement. It's embarrassing and teaches kids to instead of being positive about progress, to fret about what hasn't been achieved. Also, yes some games have very buggy controls and you will want to choke Mr Kamasashi or whatever when he tells you you suck and you know you did it correctly!
For 20 bucks,a sure buy but you have to play consistently. If you are dedicated about drastically improving your intelligence, do it.
