Parent's Guide

Boom Street is probably best described as Mario meets Monopoly. Taking place over a variety of Nintendo, or Dragon Quest themed boards, Boom Street sees players taking turns to trot around a board, buying up tiles as they go, in an attempt to amass the highest net worth. Each tile you buy up represents a shop, which people have to buy from when they land on it - earning you money in the process.

The rules get a little bit more complicated than that, but the basic gist of the game will be easy enough for most children to pick up, especially if they've ever played Monopoly. In fact, if they've played Monopoly, and can handle it, they'll probably take to Boom Street like a child-shaped duck to water, because they're both very, very similar games.

Younger children, however, may struggle to understand the rules, and the games do have a tendency to drag on - without any minigames to break up the action, nor a save function to let you pick up a half-finished game another day, there may not be enough here to keep younger children's attention.

Mature Content

As a Monopoly style board game, there's nothing for parents to worry about in Boom Street. No gore, swearing, sex, or violence at all - just an insatiable desire to be rich.

Family Multiplayer

Brilliantly, Boom Street supports full four player same-console multiplayer, letting friends and family play together using a single console. All you'll need is enough Wii Remotes to go around to jump in - and with a great selection of characters to choose from, there should be no arguing over who gets to be who, either!
