This title translated well to the Wii. It is fun and challenging; however with only 15 ways it gets old fast. When you think about it is a game for the brain; like Koroinpa {Is a Must Buy). I would buy it but I would trade it for a next version.

They should make more versions "elementary, middle, high and college levels in every subject"!

I suggest a rental first.

This is a great game to play with the family. There are a variety of games that challenge you're brain on multiple different spectrums. It's fun to have each family member take the test and see where everyone ranks in brain smarts.

Some of the multiplayer modes are alot of fun as well. There is a mind sprint game that has two teams compete against each other in a baton passing type of race. The other game we really enjoyed was mind quiz, which resembles a Jeopardy type of approach.

The only complaint I have about the game is that there are really only about 25 mini games total. So after awhile it seems like you're just doing the same thing. The games do get progressively harder as you play them though, so they do a good job at keeping you interested.

Overall this game was alot of fun for my entire family and is a definite rental for any parents who want a game they can actually compete with their kids on.

This game is fun for the whole family. I have to say it isn't as good as the other big brain games, but it is still good. I played this game with my son and we both had a lot of fun. (and hes a teenager) I would not recommend you buy this, but I would give it a try. The gameplay is not that hard, so you should breeze through it. That is why I rate this game a 9...because it is very good, but not superb!!
