The Next Level: 'Brain Boost' isn't as smart as promoted

/> As you proceed through the game, the professor character running the show will spout off some poorly-translated phrases of encouragement.

Generally, you'll look up to read "Well, well, you must give it a try!!!” and miss whatever you were supposed to be looking at on the bottom screen.

Even the games that do seem to be helpful as far as brain-testing don't end up being that much fun.

In addition, "Mega Brain Boost” doesn't chart your progress day to day like "Brain Age,” lessening the replay value even further.

"Mega Brain Boost” doesn't come close to living up to the more innovative brain-training games for the Nintendo DS including "Big Brain Academy” or "Brain Age.”

However, at just $19.99, it may be acceptable for a few of those who enjoy this type of game and have played through the better ones. The game is rated E for everyone.
