Brain training with cartoon characters and set in a town. Not a lot I can say about this one, you can take a test in the brain centre when you first start in Memory, Perception, Language and Maths. When you get your score you are directed to those areas you need to improve on (supermarket for memory etc) to replay the games and practise. It's not my favourite brain training game as I wasn't keen on the actual tasks and didn't really find them much fun. I did like the cartoony graphics and the music was like elevator music (annoying after about a minute). I didn't give it the full hour as I had had enough after the test and a couple of training sessions. If you're really into this kind of thing you might last a bit longer.

Not so much a game as an excercise
I've never written a revue before but this game is getting a bum rap in the ratings and I want to improve that. I think it's intent is misunderstood by some.
It is a brain exercise designed to help you improve different areas a little at a time. It'is set up to play about maybe 12 minutes or so once a day and over the course of time and like any exercise, that part of your body gets bigger.
They present it with simple yet professionally rendered animated cartoon characters with a comedic air and a small story line to keep you interested in doing mental gymnastics on a daily basis.
I was sold on the first half hour because I could see the direction it was headed. Days later I have no regrets. Games like these are meant to be savored. This one will still be in my library long after I've deleted many others.

Whomever rated this game was not paying attention. This is a game wherein you progress and train your brain.
Do you remember playing real games where you were challenged? Or do you just play to kill a lot of the 'whatever' things?
This one has reminded me that when you don't use it, you lose it. I am 68 years young and I have felt that I was slipping but had no idea what to do about it.
This game reunites me with different things such as memory, vocabulary and recognition. Is it 'genius' level? No, but I have been doing it for 5 days and already getting into things long forgotten.
I did not give it a 5 star because it was done in cartoon format that makes it look childish. It is NOT childish.

Good brain testing game
I was leary about even trying this game after some of the reviews, but I found myself liking this game after giving it a try. If you are looking for a game for hours of playtime in one setting then this is not that type of game. I think I will purchase it as something to do to increase my brain function daily. The game also has nice color graphics and sound.

Fun and quick
There's not a whole lot to the game, but it is pretty fun and helps train your brain. Good for a few minutes each day. And to everyone who can't seem to figure out what to do, you do know there is a "Help" button before the start of each mini-game that explains how to play, right?

Cute Brain Training Game
I thought this was an excellent game. You have to take a brain test each day which measures your skill in areas such as language( groups of three) , math ( grocery shopping game), and other main skills. The games are cute, and do really make you use your grey matter especially in areas you are not proficient in. My only complaint is there is not enough to do. You can only take the test once a day, and there is only so many times you can take the same practice tests without going batty.

AVERAGE BRAIN TRAIN GAME
This game was just okay. It is best done daily, to improve your scores. The memory test was the hardest for me--you have to match entrees with diners. The more you play, the more games get unlocked. During the demo, I only had four games unlocked. It was rather boring, so I didn't complete the demo in the same day, but spread it out every other day. Then it wasn't so bad.

One of the most engaging brain training games around
I first played Brainville through another vendor and was immediately hooked. I'm delighted that I was able to purchase it here on BigFish games. There are so many aspects of this game that I enjoy: the ability to monitor progress, focus on areas of weakness, etc. It's just fun and challenging at the same time!

A brain-training game
I like brain-training games. It's not as difficult as the DS Brain Age, nor as fun as Wii's BBA, but it good for a simple brain-training game. I usually do it once a day, or after a few days. It's not a game you can play with hours on end. The games are challenging, though I don't quite understand how they come up with their scoring.
