Fortune Street will appeal to an extremely select group of players. Its nuanced strategy requires brain-bending critical thinking and the ability to adapt to constantly changing circumstances. The game is captivating from a cerebral level only. The graphics seem outdated; and there is no other content to keep players entertained. There is one space on the board that lets players compete in a mini-game, but there are only four mini-games to cycle through. This is definitely a no-frills game. For those who appreciate the deep and complex gameplay style, it can be a fun and entertaining experience. For anyone else, which is probably a much larger audience, the game's hours-long, turn-based, complicated presentation will be off-putting and not worth their time.
