Bust out your brainpower to score points and compare with your friends smarts online in this new collection of brain exercising minigames for the Wii. Here's Gary's game review!

It's time to strain your brain again with another trip to the Big Brain Academy! This time the action is on the Nintendo Wii so it's not just a workout for your brain, your body's getting in on the action too as you jump around like a monkey with an itch. Gary tightened his thinking cap and polished up his Miis for a trip to the academy for his very own Wii Degree and here's his Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree game review.

Brainology 101

Wii Degree enrolls you in the Big Brain Academy and lets you pick courses to take to improve your brian power. Each course is a different style of minigames that tests your Wiimote skills and ability to think super fast. The minigames will have you counting from lowest to highest, puzzling over shapes and even doing a bunch of math - don't worry, it's fun! There are also a bunch of extra game modes you can try out, including hooking up with some friends for two-player competition, or up to eight players by passing the Wiimote!

A+ Brain Games

The coolest thing about Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree is that not only do the games rock, it's super easy for anyone to play. It also hooks you up with all your Miis, so you'll see them in the game. What's also nice is being able to send your high scores to your friends to compare brain power, or to show your parents how playing video games is improving your math skills!

Flunking and Failing

The biggest bummer in this game is the lack of online multiplayer action. There isn't any! All you can do is send your [KWLINK ]friends[/KWLINK] notes about how high your scores are. Having to pass the Wiimote around in multiplayer is a pain too, especially if you finally talked your Mom into playing and she has to use your nacho-cheese coated controller. Ick!

Final Grade?

If you dig minigames, you'll love this game cuz it's easy to play and packed full of awesome minigames. Plus, lots of the games really do get your brain working so it's super easy to talk your parents into buying you a copy. The weak multiplayer is frustrating, but it's still a whole bunch of fun. Try it out and invite a friend, your brain will thank you!

Thumbs Up:

  • Easy to play with anyone, even your parents!
  • The minigames are great!
  • Get your Miis involved!
  • Tons of minigames that make you think.
  • Thumbs Down:

  • Passing the cotroller = boo.
