Summary: At first it looked like a good from the graphics and the gameplay and when I started the tutorial section to understand the game I thought it was going to be like Mario Party with Monopoly. But the game's downfall is in the gameplay. I played through one of the boards and twenty minutes into it the board was already full and it was taking forever to finish the game, which I didn't care at that point if I win or not. It had a promising concept, but needed more.
Summary: kids dont find it very exciting or fun. they have only played it 3 times and we have had it for months now, im planning on selling it to get my money back out of it. and on top of all that it came damaged.
Summary: Not a very fun game. It's really boring and doesn't even make sense. The only thing I like about it is that the price has been dropped to about $15 at almost all retail stores. Which is a good price for how stupid the game is. The characters also say weird things throughout the game. Such as Toad saying "Just remember, we're all winners! This isn't about winning we're just having fun!" I mean really?
Summary: - General - 1. Game should not be compared to Mario Party as it is not action / mini-game focused. 2. Plays like an expanded rules Monopoly, or an Acquire / Monopoly mix. 3. Also plays more like an enhanced board game than a video game. 4. Average game takes approximately 2 hours. - Pros - 1. Very fun game overall. (Rules, sounds, turns, visuals etc...) 2. Over 100 things to buy and customize your Wii-Mii with, using "stamps" collected in Single Player mode.
Summary: .... but not being able to save in multiplayer mode is an inexcusable lapse. My young kids love the game but, like Monoply, they don't usually play in one sitting. Not being able to save in multiplayer makes zero sense, and is why this game mostly sits on our shelf.
Excerpt: This is the worse game that I have ever purchased for the wii. If I could return it, I would. The game is boring and time consuming. You can play alone which means you will play against 3 computer friends or use multiple players.
Pros: Easy to learn, Graphics, Kid Appropriate, Multiplayer
Summary: Q: What's good with other consenting adults, much less fun with only yourself, and not recommended for children? A: Fortune Street. Actually, I just wanted to make that joke. I had fun playing with other adults once or twice. It's better than the board game Monopoly. But so is almost any other activity. I'm not sure what the other reviewers were complaining about - the rules aren't that hard to grasp.
Summary: I have played the NDS version of this game. Definitely love that one! Played again and again. That's why once the wii version was released, I bought it immediately! However, it's a different story on wii. Everything is the same to the NDS version, well the wii version does support a global network playing, so what. The problem of the wii version is, the pace of the game is too slow. No excitment, no surprise, basically, no activity most of the time.
