The Wii's new virtual board game Fortune Street threatens to overwhelm you at first, but don't let that stop you from becoming part of the 1 percent in this Monopoly-esque game.

The only problem I had with Fortune Street was with its pacing. It feels slow at times, and if you're playing alone it can start to get a bit boring. It's definitely the most fun when you have a couple of friends play with you.

As a sucker for complicated board games I kept playing, trying to inflate and deflate the stock market while I bought and sold property like it was going out of style. At full price this game is a tough sell, but if you are a fan of board games then you may want to check Fortune Street out.
