Brain Age 2's intriguing games are also fun to explore with others using the wireless download feature of the DS. Up to 16 people can compete using only one game card if they own separate DS units. There are three brain games available for this multi-person brain bash.

In addition to the brain games, Brain Age 2 comes with 100 Sudoku puzzles, making it a great game to have when you have time to kill. While inconsistent voice recognition can mess up the initial brain age testing, the rest of the games work well using writing recognition. Kids have to be old enough to know how to make change, spell well, tell time, and compute math facts to play these games.

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.
