Hot Brain's minigames are pretty good, but because there aren't very many of them, you might not get a lot of replay value.

Hot Brain is a fun little game but can start to feel repetitive after a while. The inclusion of unlockables and infrastructure wireless multiplayer would have been nice.

If you're in the mood for memorizing an image and picking it out of a lineup, finding misspelled words or untangling balls of string, there's nothing to hold you back from playing this title. That said, Hot Brain never reaches the bar set by similar games
