Best Memory-Boosting Games

Brain Age continued...

Score: * * 1/2

If you love video games, this might be the program for you. But I grew tired of the tinny music and the cartoony revolving head (that of Dr. Kawashima). Then again, Brain Age may not be aimed at my demographic: A 19-year-old computer-science student and a 38-year-old neuroscientist both raved about it.

Cost: $20 for the Nintendo game card; $130 for the Nintendo DS system that plays it.
