Well, let's start. This is not going to be one of the games a child is going to call "fun." It has lots of sums in it with some memory and quiz type games, which well are not very fun. When you dont get an A on a game dr Kawashima treats you as if you are a 3 year old saying that you are bad and need to practise more. That said it's great for getting the brain cells back on track and learning in an active way (yes it is pretty active). Im not going to say that this game is a favorite, but if you want an active brain training game for your kid (I mean it's not like thre are any others out are, are there?) then this game is the game for you or your child. I gotts say it did make me a bit quicker with reacting to things although i got annoyed when he did not exactly say I did that well. Hope this review helped and that it helped make the mind up of some.
