"Brain Age 2 doesn't stray very far from the production of the original Brain Age. The visuals, the menus, the's nearly entirely the same as last year's product. The follow-up even has Sudoku in the same exact engine as the first game -- good thing, too, because not a single third-party has been able to out-do the Sudoku that Nintendo created for Brain Age." "we couldn't find a single repeat -- other than the aforementioned Sudoku, it's a whole new list of exercises. And they're really creative, too." "Voice recognition is back, and Nintendo ensures us that it's much better for this second time around." "New to Brain Age 2 is the multiplayer competition. You'll only need one copy of the game for as many as eight player challenges"

Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training has come under fire on BBC's Watchdog program for failing to recognise accents from the North. Deemed important enough to take up a five-minute slot on Monday night's show, Nintendo and its DS game, Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training, were under the spotlight of presenter Nicky Campbell. Campbell went as far as saying that Brain Training "clearly discriminated against" certain accents, especially Northern and Scottish.

17 million Brain Training games sold worldwide, resulting in JPY 2.4 billion (GBP 11 million) royalties, 50% of which COULD be Kawashima's share. But he said his annual salary of JPY 11 million (GBP 50,000) is plenty enough to live on. "Not a single yen has gone in my pocket. Everyone in my family is mad at me but I tell them that if they want money, go out and earn it," he revealed.

"Once you've earned a participation stamp for the day, you're free to play Virus Buster, a laid-back, stylus-controlled remake of Dr. Mario." "[sign finder] makes the game less a matter of simple memory drills and more a matter of deductive reasoning."
