I have just pre-ordered my copy of Dr Kawashima 2 which is due to come out at the end of the month. It looks as though it has the potential to be as good as the first one. Some info about it:
- The new games in the Daily Training area look really interesting and challenging. Again there appears to be a heavy emphasis on maths activities but hey, if it works then great! The activity that requires you to write what the correct sign in a sum looks like a great idea.
- Brain Training new challenges look like great fun. There is a rock, paper and scissors challenge where you must win or lose various rounds of Rock, Paper, Scissors against the DS. For example, sometimes the DS will show you a rock and tell you that you must lose. You then say “scissors” into the DS Microphone.
- There is also the added bonus of more games to play collaboratively with other players over the built in wifi connection although I am slightly disappointed that you can't play on-line with DS wireless friends around the globe the way you can with many other games.
All in all this looks rather exciting and I can't wait to review it in terms of how this iteration of Dr Kawashima may be used in schools.
