While the Brain Quest series does nothing in terms of pushing the educational genre, the games do everything when it comes to making an educational tool for children to enjoy and learn with. The controls are simple, the storyline is simple, and the questions are challenging for the selected grade level. Overall, Brain Quest should provide an ample means of entertaining your child while still increasing their knowledge.
Brain Quest is a fairly fun trivia game, but only for kids that love proving how smart they are. The focus isn't on teaching the kid the answers (though it occasionally does explain some of them), but rather just seeing what you and your friends know. If there was a fleshed out multiplayer it could be a really good trivia game. The Quest mode adds rewards to keep the game interesting, but what's the fun of proving how smart you are if there's nobody around to care?
At first sight, gamers may laugh or scoff at the idea of Brain Quest: Grades 3 & 4. And that’s a shame, since EA did a serviceable job at packaging an edutainment title with a nice depth of content and presentation style suitable for kids. We cannot let it entirely off the hook for effort, though. The title ignores advances that edutainment titles before it made, such as the touch screen functionality. Upgrades are sorely needed in the musical selections and multiplayer options. It displays the efforts, but the game only passes by as average.
