Europe PAL Version

Posted by Sammy Barker

It's time to dust off the old grey matter and challenge your brain

If a WiiWare review can be judged on the sheer amount of notes taken then Brain Challenge deserves an award. We tried hard to fit everything on two sheets of A4 and still failed. While essentially being a copy-cat of Nintendo’s immensely popular Brain...

brain challange is a good game.
I've bought it on my xbox 360 and realy envoy it.
I think wiiware version of the game will be somehow different to use wii controllers.



Linkuini said:

I've said it once, and I'll say it again: one Brain Age game (or anything like it) is enough for me.



wiitemp said:

I guess the question is, how does it compare against Brain Age Academy?
I'll be coming back to check once this is out.

If anyone cares, this has been confirmed via Nintendo Channel for 11/10/08 for 1,000 points. Which I kindve expected given thats the price it is on XBLA.



Wiiloveit said:

There ain't no release date as far as I can see - maybe it was removed? From reviews of the title on other formats, it actually doesn't sound that bad. The game has just been added to the Nintendo Channel here in the UK though, with a release date of "TBD". Tonight maybe?



Nintendork said:

Well, it says so on List of WiiWare games of course that doesn't really prove anything.



Wiiloveit said:

Oh, and we did get this. Joy.
TV Show King will keep me happy for the time being, anyway.

I just bought this game and I can't play it on my PAL Wii!! I bought and d/l it via this very same system.
It seems to be that the game, by default, uses the 60Hz video/screen setting although my Wii is set too 50Hz. The screen/video keeps shaking and they colors go from color to black&white and back all the time. The same happens with all my games if I put my Wii on the 60Hz setting.

Can someone help me with this?

This game is Big Brain Academy repackaged. If you purchased BBA, don't bother with this game. However, if you don't have BBA, this would be a decent addition for your party games.
