Game Profile

In Dr. Kawashima’s Body and Brain Exercises, players move their body to exercise their brain using the Xbox 360 Kinect device.

Based on the research of the internationally renowned Dr Kawashima, the game invites players to follow a program of simple physical coordination exercises to improve their brain age. Multiplayer gameplay lets friends and family join in the series of fun, lively body exercises and compare their brain age scores.

Concept by Dr. Kawashima
The previous Kawashima games were adapted from the Doctor’s books. For this game it was actually his idea to involve the whole body to exercise the brain.

Grey matters

The original Dr Kawashima's Brain Training on Nintendo DS started a revolution back in the day: suddenly game developers realised they could tap into a brand new market of buyers eager to kickstart their cerebral centres, and a host of copycat titles..

Why is there no reviews for this game? Not only here but anywhere else? The above user couldn't you have told us a bit more like if its good or not?

I think it is neither a brilliant game nor a decent educational tool. The worst thing about it is the poor calibration with the hardware. It misinterprets your actions, can be oversensitive and sometimes goes off and does its own thing altogether. It's almost a perfect description of my wife....ahem. I'm hoping there will be an update, because the exercises themselves are pretty good fun. The biggest downside really is that it is quite inaccessible to younger players so family gaming is almost impossible (unlike with Dance Central, Kinect Sports and Kinect Adventures). This is only my opinion and it is based on only a short amount of play but I think it deserves a disappointing 5 out of 10. It would be a 7 if the hardware worked better with it. Hope this is useful.

I've read several reviews so far and they're been ranging from 50%-75%. It says the games work well and that they're pretty fun, but there's a severe lack of variety and many of the games feel similar and repetitive.

I'm not getting until like, I can get it used for cheap at Gamestop :P
