Party Game got Brains?

When I first rented this game, I expected it to just be simple mind puzzles, and that would be all.
But after playing this game for a couple days with the whole family, it felt more like a partyish kind of game, like WarioWare, while at the same time, helping your thought processes.
At first, I was reluctant to renting this game, but after playing, I would surely recommend this game to anyone who liked any part of WarioWare, or any other party games like it.

Fair

Much anticipated after Wario, kind of a let down

I was quite looking forward to this game after I played Wario. After I started playing the game, it became quite monotonous. Boring and quite on the level of a child -- but not in the way that Wario was -- that was actually fun to play.

This is a decent game that is initially very fun. However, as previously mentioned, the tasks can become mundane after a while. I like the scoring system and I really like the premise of the game.

As for the controls, I'm a little disappointed in the use of the Wii remote features. For example, on the Wack-a-Mole game, you click to wack the mole. I think you should swing the remote to wack the mole. Also, one more annoying thing, the Big Brain host talks way to much.

On the plus side, I like the integration of the Mii characters and the ability to send your info and stats to your friends.

Overall, this is a great game for the kids to play this summer. We'll see what they think of it. They'll decide if we buy it or not.
