  • Excerpt: The extras are a bit strange. Most involve adding clothes and accessories to your Mii, but there is one interesting unlockable set. See, there’s an option in the game to go “out to lunch” and have the AI take over your character. If you’re all set up, or if you’re just getting bored but want to finish the map anyway, it’s a great option. You can buy “personalities” and “roles” for your Mii to make their actions weighted toward stocks, cooperation or just being a lunatic.

  • Cons: Can get tedious, and is a bit too much like Monopoly sometimes

  • Excerpt: Monopoly is one of the most famous board games around, and I remember in my younger years dedicating much of my non-video gaming time to it. Then Monopoly released for PC and I of course got it trying to relive the magic of the original, and was horribly disappointed leaving me to steer away from any video board games. Of course I was more than unenthusiastic to play the latest video board game, Fortune Street, as memories of past video board games surfaced.
  • Pros: Fans of both Dragon Quest and Nintendo will be pleased not only by their favourite character cameos but also the themed board games, which is a nice added touch. My favourite theme is the Mario Galaxy theme which features a board that is orbiting around a Mario head shaped planet that has pipe squares that, when landed on, transport players to another area of the board. Another cool add-on that kept me playing is the changing room that had me use my winnings to buy cl...

  • Summary: Fortune Street is a decent strategy board game, but the slow pace siphons away much of the fun.
  • Pros: Wide variety of board designs, Robust single-player mode with fun opponents and dialogue, Plenty of extras to unlock
  • Cons: Can be slow-paced even on the highest speed settings, Easy mode is too dull, Doesn't hold up well as a party game experience

  • 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).

  • Excerpt: Actualmente los juegos de mesa son una afición poco habitual, cada día pierden seguidores ante las bondades de la era digital y cuando el entretenimiento de tablero se traduce a términos virtuales, el desencanto se agrava. A expensas del pésimo panorama, Fortune Street buscó su lugar en el Wii, una propuesta que emula el esquema de Monopoly pero le agrega un poco del encanto que destilan tanto los icónicos personajes de Mario Bros.
