Another option for family game night.

Fun family activity but it can be hard to play against each other competitively - too much time between events. It can also be harder for younger children, if they don't grasp the point of a particular puzzle.

Boring and extremely hard to use. Get the Nintendo DS version. It's much better.

This game is good.

Educational, but there is a reference to "Whack a Mole".

Cool!

I got this a couple of days ago and it's really fun! It's awesome how it uses your records so you can play in real time against "yourself"! And it makes you think while having fun!

I love it

This game is great. You actually feel smarter. I think this os a great game but it can be addictive. I think the math game with the baloons is the most fun

Fun for the whole family

Big Brain Academy is the most-played Wii game in our house. The puzzles are challenging, and get harder as you succeed, meaning that everyone from my kindergartner through his grandparents can have a fun challenge. The puzzles vary widely; some test memory, others listening skills, others visual acuity, yet others spatial acuity. Party mode allows the whole family to compete against in each other. This is a terrific game, and I highly recommend it. Note: As expensive as Wii games are, I like to rent them first to try them out before plunking down $50 for them. Know that your "brain size" will stay on your Wii, so if you do buy after renting, it's like picking up where you left off with the rental. Good stuff!
