    [​IMG] Depends on what you mean by your vision is bad I suppose, if you need glasses this game ain't going to fix that.

    I wonder if this helps you read faster since it exercises your eyes.

    YYYEEEEEESSS!! Been waiting for the English release for months. Best "improvement game" to date.

    EVERYONE give this a try - it's less about vision than it is reaction speeds but it's still awesome.

    it helps with eye hand coordination and reflexes and that type of thing. It's not gonna fix your eyes [​IMG]

    cool game though, the sport mini-games are quite fun

    Its...ok. Can't say I enjoyed it that much, seemed a bit easy to me.

    I doubt that it can train your eyes up.

    Well considering IGN gave it a thumbs down, I wouldn't be surprised. By the way, I did read the review, not just the score so don't give me that IGNorant crap.

    They've seem to be getting a little better with their reviews lately, they even gave a DS Spider-Man game the rating it deserved. They made some very valid points about this game which I agree completely on.

    How does this version compares to the Japanese version? A lot of people seemed to be looking forward to this as they liked the Japanese version.

    Pretty much the same thing. The only difference I've noticed is that the animations are different when it tells you what rank you are at a specific test.

    If nothing else, it makes you consider things like peripheral vision. I like to think of it as more of a reactions game.

    Oh and about it being too easy, it gets harder depending on how well you score.

    Not a game I'd go out of my way to get onto my flashcart but I can definitely see this game as something for those who didn't like games but would play it to try it out... like my dad and the whole brain training thing.

    And this is yet another proof that Nintendo is singlehandedly killing gaming. This is why I'll never ever be a Nintendo fanboy.
