Guardian writes: "The PSP now has a plausible title to rival the DS's Brain Training hit as the game show host dons his lab coat.
In essence, Brain Bender is Sony's version of Dr Kawashima's brain tester, but with added colour and humour. However, there's no declaration that playing this game will improve your memory or fend off dementia. Rather, it portrays itself as a simple and fun puzzler with entertaining challenges to complete." 3/5
