    At first Fortune Street looks like a fun virtual Nintendo edition of Monopoly, but then, you find out that Fortune Street is an extremely challenging game in disguise.

    Love this game but it has some issues. This is a little more complicated version of Monopoly that doesn't take too long to learn and master. Once you play a couple of games it is pretty easy to see how the stock mechanic works and develop a good strategy. The stock market mechanic helps remove a lot of the random luck required to win Monopoly but still too much is just plain luck. TheLove this game but it has some issues.

The stock market mechanic helps remove a lot of the random luck required to win Monopoly but still too much is just plain luck. The worse part being that you have to be the first person back to the Bank over the target amount. Doesn't matter if you have more money than the person who gets back to the Bank. It's kind of a "blue shell" to rely on dice rolls to get you back before someone else. Overall I have a lot of fun with this game. Surprisingly the online works well. It seems to link you up with mostly people from Japan but you often can get a 4 player match running in about 10 minutes or so. Another drawback is that a game takes about an hour and a half. It's a lot of time to spend to barely lose and not get the gold medal to unlock things. I recommend to anybody who wants a advanced form of Monopoly. Collapse

    Boom Street is an original game that deserves to do well in the West. It is well presented and provides a big challenge for single players and lots of game time for board game aficionados.

    Interesting and quite complex desk game suffers from tediousness and not-so-attractive visuals. Boom Street is actually a kind of Monopoly game with more complicated rules. [Feb 2012]

    Intelligently redesigned but isn't punchy enough to be laughing all the way to the bank. [March 2012, p.96]
