By Lisa Shea HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 18, 2007
Hot Brain for the PSP falls into the category of Brain Age and other puzzle / brain testing games. You practice with a bunch of mini-games, then you take a test to see just how hot your brain really is. While it can be fun, there isn't enough variety to make it the long term draw that Brain Age is.

First, the basics. You're in a brain lab where testing has shown that the more you use your brain, the more blood flow that goes through it. It makes sense, and I like this concept MUCH more than the bizarre ideal that "everyone should want to have a 20-year-old brain" that Brain Age supports. A well exercised brain is a healthy, happy and functional brain.

There are five categories of brain tests and exercises for you to play with. You can play with logic, memory, math, language and concentration. The types of games you play are pretty typical for this type of game. You play Simon type remember-the-sequence games. You look at a series of shapes and figure out what comes next. You choose numbers in order of low to high. You alphabetize words.

I think we have really been spoiled by the Brain Age series, though. Many of the Brain Age games are really fun to play. I admit some I dislike, but most are good. Here, though, they are all pretty boring. I like the shape assembly game, and the yarn following game is fun enough, but many of the others just aren't fun. In fact, one - the "what rhymes with this shape" - provides shapes that are completely unrecognizable! How can I tell what rhymes with an object I can't identify?

Another problem, oddly enough, is the graphics. At first I was really impressed by the graphics and was thinking I would love the game because of it. Brain Age is notoriously poor on graphics.

My original reasons for buying a game console was to have "Brain Age". The sales man convinced me, while being 32 to get a PSP instead of a nintendo. But I mentioned wanting to have a brain game. I was suggested Hot Brain.
It turned out good. It is a fun game, challenging and one game that you can play over and over again no problem. It is much more graphic then the original brain age from Nintendo.
It gives you challenges in 5 different catagories and the assignments are very nice and random.

If you are looking for the best brain age comparison, I think Mind Quiz is better, but this game is more graphic and a little more sophisticated.

In a world of brain age rip-offs, this one is actually good enough to fill the void on the PSP. It does a good job of testing you and showing your progress as time goes on. I would recommend this for anyone wanting to keep his or her brain in shape. Although the jury is still out if this keeps your mind alert, it is fun to play along and see how you compare to everyone else. It just lacks the originality that came with Brian Age.

I was serching for a game that could keep me hours playing it, and that also made me feel like something in my mind was getting better.

Obviously, it has no story, and the 3D graphics aren't shown all the time you play, but it gets your brain to work, and if you have the chance to let someone else to play, you start comparing yourself and working hard to makeit better.

Hot Brain is challenging and fun for children over 13 and adults. Because its timed, it requires your undivided attention. A few of the games can be confusing. A little advanced for my 9 year old. I highly recommend this game.
