PlayTM: Buzz Brain Bender Review

PlayTM writes: " It's taken a couple of years but it seems Sony have finally decided now is the time to launch the PSP's take on Nintendo's Brain Training phenomenon, Buzz Brain Bender. Given how instrumental the success of Brain Training was in helping Nintendo's DS take over most of the known world you'd have thought the powers that be at Sony would have been clamouring for a PSP equivalent long before now. Perhaps it's taken them this long to come up with a figurehead, while Nintendo had the quirky and endearing Dr. Kawashima Sony have plumped for the endlessly annoying Buzz as their master of ceremonies. Yay for Sony.

To be fair, I'm probably starting this off on an unfairly negative foot, I mean if Sony had rushed a Brain Training clone to market a couple of years ago the cries of copycat would have been even louder. Also Brain Bender does make a point of setting itself up as a more casual experience than the slightly serious Brain Training." ( Buzz! Brain Bender, PSP) 70/100
