Professor Kageyama's Maths Training review

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

Pros

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

Cons

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

Nintendo is really stretching the whole ‘training’ thing. This hardly constitutes a ‘game’ let alone ‘training’. It’s just relentless rapid-fire maths questions that don’t increase in terms of complexity, just in the way they’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’s nothing clever here and it didn’t recognize the figure of ‘8’.
