Review 1 for Brain Age 2: More Training In Minutes A Day
Forget Advil, Brain Age 2
If I reach a point during the day where I feel totally tapped and am unable to focus on something, pulling out Brain Age 2 and putting my mind through the paces definitely helps. Picking up right where the first edition left off, Brain Age 2 tests every cognitive process you can imagine plus the ones you didn't know you had. This is a good way to keep your mind sharp and while I don't know that it helps me in day to day activities or duties, it definitely is a nice way to blow of some steam and relieve any stress that might have accrued during the day. It's also fun to play with others and test yourself out - bragging rights in this game goes a long way. I'm 33 but my Brain Age is 22, now if I can just get my gut to reflect the same we'll be talking.

I give it the 'Stamp of Approval'
I got this game for X-Mas a few years ago and I wasn' t exactly the happiest person in the world. I mean, there were plenty of games I would have liked better than this one. But when I started playing, I found out that I liked it more than I thought I would. Sure, there were a few of the activities that I didn't like or didn't do very well at. But I think that if anyone played the game, they would find that out for themselves too. But the game, overall, was very fun. Some of my family members joined in on the fun and created a user so we could play all on the same game. It's also a lot of fun when you download this game on another two DS's and play together. There are some very fun games that you can play in a group. So, to conclude, I give this game my 'Stamp of Approval'

Review 3 for Brain Age 2: More Training In Minutes A Day
A great game
To start off i would like to say that this is one of the first and best DS games that ive got. It is really fun to play and is very challenging to me which is a plus. And when it says that it gets you thinking it really does and if you play it every day you can become somewhat smarter. And i like it because when i get tired of the mini games or learning games i can do multipal suduku puzzels which i personaly like. This like i said before is one of the best DS games made, next to MarioKart DS. If you're thinking if you should buy this you need to buy this product. Even if your not a gamer it does not take much to play; all you need is your brain. ( Hince the name- Brain Age 2). To put that in comparison my mom, dad, and even my grandma can play this game, it takes hardley no skill at all. Again if you have a DS you need to buy this product.

Review 4 for Brain Age 2: More Training In Minutes A Day
Brain Age 2 is definitely the best game of it's educational genre. It's one of the original games that almost every other company did a spin off of. You really do see a difference in how your brain works after playing this game for a while. I played for a week and noticed my mind seemed to be working faster and my memory improved. It's also great fun to try and get your brain age as low as you can. There's also a few secrets to be unlocked in the game, and Dr. Kawashami's alter ego in the game is really cute and funny. For anyone who loves Soduku, there's 100 puzzles in Brain Age 2 ready to be solved. They range from easy to hard, and they're great fun. For anyone who's never played Soduku before, BA2 offers a great tutorial on how to play. I was never interested in it, and decided to try it one day, and I play a game as often as I can. Your brain will thank you for Brain Age 2!

Review 5 for Brain Age 2: More Training In Minutes A Day
great for us older folks!
I received this one for Christmas and I like it! My DS goes with me to work and I play while I'm waiting for clients. It's so much better than the old crossword books that I used to take along. And you'll like being able to delete a mistake, rather than erase the old pen/pencil marks. The brain games are both timed and untimed, simple to progressively more difficult. My granddaughter has even "borrowed" it for a while. She's 9 and liked it too. The Sudoku section of the game is what we play the most. As you play more games, you advance in levels ie:beginner, intermediate, advanced etc. And you will definitely notice a difference between the levels. The game tracks your progress, by your name, and even greets you each time you log in.

Review 6 for Brain Age 2: More Training In Minutes A Day
Something For the Family
The original Brain Age proved to be a powerfully addicting handheld game, its replayability buoyed considerably by the beefy Sudoku puzzle mode. In Brain Age 2, Sudoku is back, as is a stripped down version of Dr. Mario called Virus Buster. The rest of the formula remains essentially the same, but with an all-new test of mental acuity. While it’s definitely got the same charm, it did seem that – in finding ways to change up a fairly simple template – the developers have been forced to create some contests that seem unduly counter-intuitive. However, this increased challenge will be welcome to hardcore fans that have long since brought their brain age down to 20. Despite my minor concerns, however, this is yet another excellent DS title for a system that is already home to more than a few.

Review 7 for Brain Age 2: More Training In Minutes A Day
Definetly worth it
Sometimes your brain needs a little juice. Juice that will make your brain much better. This game is always good if you're having trouble with memorizing or you cant think things as fast as you want them too. Or just to have fun with it! There are fun math games that are actually "fun" Ironic right? And the whole stamp thing wants you to get more and see what awards you get for getting more stamps. What about the piano game? Music! The next best thing. Also you can always check if you really are getting better by a special test. The sudokus also get addicting. I kept playing sudoku for a good amount of time, and I never liked sudokus I always found not quite annoying, this game got me thinking differently though. This game really does work and does help you.

Brain Age 2 Continues the "Brainiac" succsess
When I got the original Brain Age 1. I found it a great After School Work out to just pull out when I was bored. Brain Age 2 is that same game but 100 times better. It has the same funcinality success as the original did, But how can you deny playing the piano as a training exercise, or calulating a calender, or making change. Now if only Nintendo fused the 2 games together it would be a DS best seller. If your struggiling in school or just need to spice your brain up you should pick this game up.
Review 9 for Brain Age 2: More Training In Minutes A Day
This will be great!
I have played "Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day" for over a year now, and I have to say that I loved it. It was addicting, and it made my brain a little sharper. Although, I can't wait for this one to come out so I can try out some new activities. I'll let you all in on a little secret about "Brain Age": After you play the game every day for a year, you cannot record any more info on it.

Review 11 for Brain Age 2: More Training In Minutes A Day
Great taste in games
I have the first one and it sucks!!! And I also have the 2nd in japenese version. It still sucks, the only subject you can do is math and grammar in this game!. And its just the same old games, with some new ones. But it still doesnt make anything better. Well I have to say 2 is better than the 1rst one.
Review 12 for Brain Age 2: More Training In Minutes A Day
Well other then that, I gave the Orginal Brain Age a 4/10 because not much Gameplay is going on exept learning facts that you would not learn in school D: Anyways Im going to bye this game to check If it was better just to see how much Brain Boost It gives you. <b> silverwind1012 </b>

Review 13 for Brain Age 2: More Training In Minutes A Day
Yeah, the fist one was so so, but will the second be any better? From the things I've heard there will be some harder games in this brain age than the first one (like counting change :P). I don't think it will be all that great of a game, but give it a look if you liked the first one
Review 14 for Brain Age 2: More Training In Minutes A Day

Review 15 for Brain Age 2: More Training In Minutes A Day
The original was OK. I liked Big Brain Academy better and also have the version that came out for the Wii. I don't really know what to expect from this one. I like both Big Brain Academys a lot but Brain Age wasn't a great one for me. Maybe this will be good.
Review 16 for Brain Age 2: More Training In Minutes A Day
I dont see much point in making a Brain Age 2, but I can definitely tell this will be better than the first one, because of the covers of both Brain Age boxes.... but then again, you can't judge a game by its case. This, however, is an exception.
Review 17 for Brain Age 2: More Training In Minutes A Day
loved the first
The first Brain age was an invigorating game. It kept you busy and was really educational. Unlike most games which are just fun. I can't wait for the second to get here so that i may try it out. Im really looking forward to an exciting game.
Review 18 for Brain Age 2: More Training In Minutes A Day
I loved the first Brain Age, and this one is going to be even better! If you don't know Brain Age, I highly suggest that you try it out now! The first one had a built-in Sudoku in it! Imagine what this is going to have! I can't wait!
Review 19 for Brain Age 2: More Training In Minutes A Day
The previoius Brain Age I found was only addicting to me for a couple of weeks, so I am really hoping that the activities are more engaging and fun. I found that I enjoyed Brain Academey more just because of the corky graphics.
Review 20 for Brain Age 2: More Training In Minutes A Day
I hope so
I had the first one, and I liked it. The only problem was the lack of really fun things to do. Most of the activities just gave me something to do in my spare time if I was bored. I hope they add some HAHA fun games to BA2.
