Fortune Street

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: At first glance, Fortune Street may look like another Mario -themed, board game-structured mini-game collection. It's not. Anyone who picks this game up expecting another light, mindless, motion-controlled mini-game romp like Mario Party 8 or Wii Party will be sorely disappointed.

Fortune Street review (WII)

HonestGamers
18 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Back when it was released in late 2011, Fortune Street was almost completely ignored by consumers, especially here on the Oregon Coast. Nintendo published the title and made Mario and his friends the stars of the accompanying advertising campaign, which should have guaranteed the game’s success, but...

Fortune Street

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: I am keenly aware of the debate over digital board games versus the traditional board games. I like both of them. I know that sounds like straddling the fence, but it is true. We play board games in our family, and we play digital board games as well. We use both of them to spend time as a family.

Fortune Street review

GamesRadar
24 June 2012
  • Excerpt: After enjoying two decades of success in its native Japan, the Fortune Street series has finally made its way west in its first outing on Wii. To put it briefly, it's like a beefed-up, more strategic version of Monopoly with a Mario and Dragon Quest theme.
  • Pros: More strategy than most party games, Lots of boards to choose from, Making your own drinking games
  • Cons: Waiting for AI players to take their turns, Playing alone to unlock everything, Not much direct interaction between players

Review: Fortune Street (Nintendo Wii)

Diehard GameFAN
4 March 2012
  • Summary: : Fortune Street is a good middle ground for people who found Mario Party too simplistic and Culdcept Saga too complex as video board games, as it’s a good middle ground between the two for friends to enjoy, though it doesn’t hold up in any other capacity, unfortunately, making it limited overall.

No frills Monopoly-like game is more complex than it is fun.

Common Sense Media
27 February 2012
  • Summary: Parents need to know that Fortune Street is like a deeper, more complex version of Monopoly. In addition to collecting properties ("shops") and investing money to make the rent at each shop more expensive, players can buy and sell stock attributed to groups of properties, allowing them to also...

  • Conclusion: Kid Factor:   While almost any kid could sit down and fiddle their way through the menus, some reading is required.  In the basic game, without stocks, it could easily be played by any 8 or 10 year old, while I’d recommend the advanced stock version for 10+, preferably the more strategic thinkers.

  • Excerpt: Dreamed up by Dragon Quest creator Yuji Horii over 20 years ago, Fortune Street has finally come to America, courtesy of Nintendo. Is this video board game a worthwhile investment? Fortune Street is most easily compared to Monopoly.

Fortune Street

AV Club
12 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Fortune Street , making its way Stateside since finding Japanese popularity in 1991, is like a fine Belgian chocolate truffle laced with NutraSweet. The game was already great on its own; it doesn’t need the added aspartame sweetness of Wii-ification, which occurs via cutesy mini-games, unnecessary...
