Description of The Island of Dr. Brain

This follow-up to the classic Castle of Dr. Brain sadly doesn't live up to its predecessor, mostly because the wonderful variety of educational puzzles in the original is reduced to a boring lot of language puzzles (e.g. word search and grammatical games) that feels more like English 101 than anything else. Most puzzles also seem too hard for the intended age group of 12+ yrs. old.

Overall, the game will be fun only to those who like grammatical challenges, and not as original as its predecessor.

Had my kids play this as part of our homeschool curriculum. They found some of it tedious but they learned so much! I played it too after they were in bed!! lol

I played this game at 9 years old. The puzzles were amazing and tricky, but not out of my range of ability at all.
