Nintendo's Big Brain Academy series finally hits the Wii in the sequel, Wii Degree. Players bend their brains through fast-paced minigames, reconfigured for use with the Wii remote. Most of the games continue to be great fun, particularly when other players get involved—up to eight can take part. The presentation holds up despite the basic appearance. A true online mode would've been nice (WiiConnect24 can be used to indirectly challenge others) and the too-high price of $50 might change some minds rather quickly. Overall, however, would-be geniuses will enjoy it.
