We're really happy about the fun assortment of minigames that help Big Brain Academy exemplify what the DS game seemed to set out to be. The presentation, from the whimsical score to the integration of Miis into gameplay, really stands out. It's probably the best concoction of edutainment that you'll find this year, if you're playing it alone. However, given the sense of community that we've found goes hand in hand with the Wii's marketing, we're just as disappointed in the multiplayer options as we are happy with the single player. The options are slim, and while some might like the fact that it can be played with one remote among eight, there's not even much in store for play with two remotes, something that we're sure most Wii owners have by now. However, if you've already got the likes of Wii Sports, Wario Ware, and perhaps Rayman to satisfy your get-togethers, then the more solitary elements of Big Brain Academy could be to your liking.
