The game that I’m about to review is a bit of a weird one. It’s part of a franchise that first began in 1991, and spanned seven games without actually ever setting foot outside of Japan. Now, in 2012, we’ve got Boom Street (aka Fortune Street or Itadaki Street depending on where you’re from) and one has to ask, has the wait for this franchise been worth it? It’s hard to say. At first, I was rather ignorant and many probably shared my opinion, that Boom Street was essentially Mario Party with Dragon Quest characters added in. After spending many, many hours with Boom Street I’ve come to a realisation—Boom Street is a board game like no other on the Wii and something that will only appeal to a very specific group of people. At least, that’s what I think anyway. It’s hard to say.
