Thunderbolt Review: Buzz! Brain Bender

Oliver Banham writes: "Imagine this. Bandera, Texas, it's 1880, the sun is blazing fervently, soon to fall behind the dusty horizon. 'The Old Brain Saloon' stands prominently amongst an otherwise generic cowboy town, tumbleweeds and everything. A shadowed figure sits by the corner of the bar, sipping on a light beer and irritating the barman with his exuberant quips. His name is Buzz. Just then the clock strikes midnight, the saloon doors fly open, and all heads turn. Walking to the bar with a gun in his hand and a pleasant smile on his face, a man adjusts his glasses and looks towards Buzz. His name is Dr. Kawashima. "Your time is up, Doc", utters Buzz with a sheepish grin, "I own this place now, man you've got one hell of a nerve coming here". Dr. Kawashima replies without hesitation, "this town ain't big enough for the two of us Buzz, outside, now". And with that they engage in a good old fashioned shootout. Neither come out victorious, however, as they both keel over before they can pull the trigger. Exhaustion's a killer; it seems these brain games just can't seem to keep up past an initially interesting and involving concept. Buzz! Brain Bender is well presented, varied and engaging, but the core gameplay isn't quite enough to hold players for too long, or cement the game as a truly notable classic, much like Nintendo's Brain Training (or Brain Age, for those in the US)." ( Buzz! Brain Bender, PSP) 6/10
