Mini-games make you think, get you active, and are fun, too.

With its unexciting title and stodgy look, Body and Brain Connection will probably be an easy Kinect game to overlook, but it would be a shame if that happens, because it's far more entertaining and engaging than it appears on the surface. Admittedly, there are going to be certain people who simply won't enjoy math games (and a number of these mini-games involve doing fast math), but there are a also a slew of quick-reflex action games in which the brain work is a little less obvious -- and those should appeal to almost everyone. The whole package is nicely designed to get you pumped up and eager to try each game again, intent on beating your previous score. Fans of games like Brain Age should really love Body and Brain Connection, but hopefully they won't be the only ones to try it out.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
