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

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 collect money when someone else is paid, or when someone else invests money into a shop. There are numerous strategies for players to develop.
Conclusion: Fortune Street is a good board game in terms of premise but as a videogame, it suffers in many areas that we would expect would be enhanced by being a virtual experience. From a slow interface to being bogged down on a console, Fortune Street finds little time for you to spend with your friends aside from marathon gaming sessions or parties (though it's not the light-hearted affair you would expect from similar experiences such as Mario Party).
