Guardian writes: "Ever since the success of the original Dr Kawashima Brain Training game there have been a host of similar edutainment titles for the Nintendo DS.
Maths and Sight Training have been just the tip of the iceberg. The latest addition to the genre is Junior Brain Trainer. Aimed at 6- to 11-year-olds, the game follows the national curriculum and – in theory – develops reading, writing, spelling and maths. Whether the simple word and number games here – fill in gaps, do sums – will have any lasting educational impact is debatable, but the game is at least nicely put together."
