Good

Learning is fun. Sort of, anyway.

I had really high hopes for Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree (BBA:WD). I was hoping that I'd have fun with it (obviously), but I was also hoping that my wife would take a liking to it as well. She is a casual gamer (almost a non-gamer), and I was thinking that this would be something fun to use together.

Turns out that it was fun to watch each other work through the 5 categories to get a new brain weight. And multiplayer was almost fun... the person with the best hand eye coordination really has the advantage here still, so it was less fun than I'd hoped for the wife. Multiplayer feels very limited with only a few modes to choose from.

Overall, it was very fun to rent, but I don't think I'd be returning often enough or practicing enough to justify owning it. Thanks again Gamefly for helping me make another good decision on games purchases... this is one that I most likely would have purchased right away without trying if it weren't for you!

Pros
- the migration to Wii is implemented well
- addictive and competitive gameplay
- Single and multiplayer fun
- Can send 'ghost' scores to friends online to compete against
- Mii integration

Cons
- not much, wish there was actual online play
- could use a 4 player head to head
- the mascot guy talks too much
- would be nice to know the benchmarks to get certain medals

Remember to press A+B in the beginning to skip through the professors welcome speeches
