This is a great game for older children. Younger ones will have trouble understanding. It makes the most of counting money and learning how to figure out whether you have enough. Makes monopoly fun.

A Suprisingly Good Time

Most times I hear about another Monopoly clone coming out, I ignore it and move on. With the games history in japan and the integration of mario and dragon quest characters I thought I would give it a rent. This game takes the tried and true monopoly formula and adds tweaks like an end game and an interesting stock system. It is definitely made to be played with friends, but I had fun playing solo. I'll definitely be picking this one up. Don't ignore this monopoly style game.

Having messed around with the game for a while, I'm glad that something like this came out. If you ask someone if they want to play Monopoly, there's always 'Yeah but"s. The game's too long, too boring, we're out of beer... but Fortune Street adds a new twist, with the ability to invest in other players' districts

As for the single player, it's a Nintendo title, and that means one thing: Rubber Band AI, and they're not subtle. Still, some people will rant that the game "Cheats". Let's be real. You bought/rented a Nintendo game, you should know what's up by now.

The Good: Absolutely ridiculous costumes, accessories, and animations to give your Mii a little more flavor.

The Bad: Some of the levels are downright rude, and it's a pain in the neck to actually quit a game. You have to wait till the start of your turn, and if you roll the die, you have to wait another cycle of turns. It's easier to reset the game from the Wii Menu

The Verdict: Certainly worth a rent until the price drops. Starts at 50 bucks, will likely be thirty by the time the snow melts, about the price of an actual board game.
