Among the many video games available for Nintendo DS Lite the Big Brain Academy is something I want my kids to play with. There are about 45-50 games downloaded in the unit when we bought the memory. I scanned the downloaded games and usually plays with it occasionally.
This video game comes in five categories: Think, Identify, Memorize, Compute and Analyze. Every category has three different levels and you can play the practice, test and versus modes. I do appreciate the content of the game and I find it beneficial to kids as to learning aspect and developing their mental skills. Even I feel the challenge and pressure as I play with it and usually I mess it out on the Think category. Maybe I need more practice on that to master it. LOL.
My kids find a great challenge and educational time with this game. It enables them to think fast, analyze things, be alert and strategic, works under time pressure and more. This one is highly recommendable to kids instead of other games like wrestling and other violent video games.
