Body and Brain Connection: XBox 360 Game Review

Body and Brain Connection: XBox 360 Game Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Mar 06, 2011

Is your brain well Kinect-ed to your body? The motion controlled sequel to Brain Age is here, but is it the coming of a new era?

Chances are that, if you have a Nintendo DS, you probably have played Brain Age at one point. Well, Dr. Kawashima is back and on the XBox this time. Also, he will not only be testing your brain, but your body as well!

Exercises and Drills

Similar to Brain Age, this game consist of several exercises and drills that you perform daily while tracking your overall progress. There are five categories: Physical, Math, Reflexes, Logic, and Memory. Each of these categories have four exercises (20 exercises in total) and three difficulty settings.

Some of them are interesting, such as the drill where you need to move pac-man with one hand and collect fruit with the other. You can also play with a friend, which changes the game into something similar to a TV quiz show and includes a few additional exercises.

Aging Whine

Overall, the game is quite frustrating. Even on the easy levels the game is pretty unforgiving. While, in Brain Age, you got a long time limit to do as many questions as possible, in Body and Brain Connection, you are timed differently and might get cut off on a question really fast. Dr. Kawashima is also a bit mean and getting poor letter grades on certain exercise may discourage you. Most players will probably start skipping the recommended exercises and just play the games that they are good at.

Adding to the frustration is the fact that working with the Kinect can be a bit of a chore, as it can be easy to accidently do something that you did not want to do and fail an exercise.

There are certainly some good exercises in Body and Brain Connection. However, as a training tool, it is too annoying to work with. Even if you are a Brain Age fan, I would not recommend this game.
