Professor Kageyama's Maths Training review

It's just mental arithmetic, not a game or entertainment

For

  • Adding and subtracting!
  • Getting better over time
  • Feeling smart

Against

  • Won't recognize '8'
  • Doesn't get more complex
  • Feels like homework

Nintendo is really stretching the whole %26lsquo;training%26rsquo; thing. This hardly constitutes a %26lsquo;game%26rsquo; let alone %26lsquo;training%26rsquo;. It%26rsquo;s just relentless rapid-fire maths questions that don%26rsquo;t increase in terms of complexity, just in the way they%26rsquo;re presented. Simple addition is laid out in cells, with missing numbers or with illustrated cards. Gradually, you get better but purely through repetition. There%26rsquo;s nothing clever here and it didn%26rsquo;t recognize the figure of %26lsquo;8%26rsquo;.
