Boom Street

  • Excerpt: Nintendo have just released Boom Street in Australia and although the cover looks like some strange version of Mario Party, it's actually far from it. Boom Street is a virtual board game that is oozing with Nintendo goodness that combines elements from popular games such as Monopoly and the Game of Life which creates an interactive board game experience on your TV.

  • Excerpt: Boom Street is the latest attempt to bring a board game experience to the video game medium and it's not a bad effort. It's actually the ninth game in the Itadaki Street series, a range of games that have been released by Enix and then Square Enix ever since the NES days, but this is the first one to be released in the UK.

Review: Boom Street

N-Europe
4 January 2012
  • Conclusion: An obscure yet engrossing multiplayer game that makes a nice change from Mario Party and Monopoly. It may not be everyone's cup of tea but for the strategic Mario fan, this makes for quite a fun evening.
  • Pros: Impressive and wide selection of boards., Deep experience., Lots of replayability.
  • Cons: Pacing may be too slow for some., Can be overwhelming at first., Minigames are quite poor.

  • Conclusion: In Japan Itafaki Street, a Monopoly like game has been very successful over the since its initial release on Famicon back in 1991. Now the game hits Europe for the first time under the name Boom Street . Boom Street resembles Monopoly in many ways. Players are placed on a board, and one after another they roll the dice and make their way around the board. The board in turn is divided into districts, and in different places you can acquire unowned property.
  • Pros: Engaging, interesting district and stock system that creates variation, gets the competitive juices flowing.
  • Cons: Can get a little complex for the youngest, not much fun to play on your own.

Itadaki Street

  • Summary: Boom Street of Itadaki Street bestaat al sinds 1991 in Japan en verschijnt pas met deze Nintendo Wii -versie voor het eerst in de rest van de wereld. Het spel haalt duidelijk de mosterd bij het gekende gezelschapspel Monopolie , maar weet er toch enkele aspecten aan toe te voegen waardoor het een heel ander spelverloop kent. Of deze reeks ook bij ons zal aanslaan is de vraag die we met deze review trachten te beantwoorden.
  • Pros: een uitdagend bordspel
  • Cons: mist actie, kan complex overkomen

  • Excerpt: Mario Party-”brætspillene” har været (og er stadig) rasende populære med deres sjove blanding af brætspilsmekanikker og minispil kombineret til et morsomt partyspil. Så man kunne fristes til at tro, at Boom Street, der er endnu et Nintendo-fiseret brætspil, ville følge samme formel, når det tager det klassiske brætspil Matador under kærlig behandling. Men det er faktisk langt fra sandheden.
  • Pros: Sjov Matador variant, God dybde, Mange baner
  • Cons: Bedre grafik efterlyses, Meget svage minispil, For tungt til mange typiske Mario-fans

  • Conclusion: I Japan har den Matador-lignende spilserie Itadaki Street haft stor succes i over 10 år, og nu udgives et af spillene endelig for første gang her i Europa og det er ikke helt tilfældigt. Boom Street minder på rigtig mange måder om Matador, og derfor er her da også tale om et digitalt brætspil, hvor alt går efter tur og en terning bestemmer hvor langt man kan bevæge sig på spillepladen.
  • Pros: Sjovt sammen med andre. Godt distrikts- og aktiesystem. Mange timers holdbarhed.
  • Cons: Kan være svært at lære for de yngste. Kun sjovt mod andre menneskelige spillere.
