    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. 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. Expand

    Can be extremely fun, and it can be extremely frustrating. Overall its an awesome in-depth monopoly. The best part in my opinion is the difference that each board has, new twists are everywhere and the different paths to take make each board extremely interesting. Play the stocks, and make bank by being promoted. Get it before the Wii goes out of style, which is soon.

    A great game for the holidays in my opinion. Although it can be slow at times and the maps can frustrate many players you can change the settings to allow faster game play and there are basic maps that everyone can understand and enjoy. If you love monopoly this IS the game for you and your friends. Its a much balanced version where even if a player gets half the properties in the game you can still win by playing the stocks. There is a substantial amount of luck in this game but what board game doesn't have a little luck? Overall this is a fantastic game that the entire family will enjoy. Expand

    Very Good Mix of charaters , music , and the worlds of both Mario and Dragon Quest. The table game adquires this time a epic dimension of fun with your friends , family , and other people in a good online game.

    A fun monopoly style game where you buy property and can also buy stocks in certain areas which yield dividends. This game is better if you have 4 people to play with, otherwise you spend much of your time watching the computer play. There is a speed up feature that makes this better, but still takes a while to play. If you play alone be prepared to get your A$$ kicked by the computer 100% of the time. My wife and I have played eleven times and came in a distant third and fourth every single time. I have played a lone six times and came in a distant fourth six times, so if you hate losing you will need to play with other people. The many different levels and boards keeps this game interesting as each one offers new challenges and strategic advantages. Overall an addictive game that is great with a few friends, but takes no prisoners when played alone. Expand

    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.

    They are going to say that it's a little of the plagiarism of Monopoly, but game offers supplementary functions, they put chillies in game, and in the world of dragon Quest blended in Mario's worlds, it is necessary to acknowledge that a bit a poor mixture.

    this game is awesome, much funnier than monopoly, I'd say most of the negative reviews are from people who didn't bother getting too deep into it, or were alienated by kotaku, who was treating this game like the anti-christ of gaming and nitpicking on every detail possible to criticize it ( including the phrases on the back of the game box, saying phrases about stocks and such ( refering to in game mechanics ) and telling people it was that nintendo meant this game to be for rich people only.
    I think this killed some of the potential for this game in the west, this is the first game of the long running japanese series Itadaki street, that exists since the famicom, and it's one of the most amazing ones too, special boards, lots of characters, definitely one of the best in the series.

    Beware though, the CPU opponents won't take it easy on the player!
    and playing with friends is a lot funnier, but won't earn you any stamps, currency used to buy in game character customisation gear.

    if you like REAL board games, check it out!
    if you're a Mario Party fan, this miiight NOT be the game for you, since it has no mini-games or some of the crazy stuff the mario party series has, but I think you can still have fun if you get into it!

    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]
