Board Gamer (Wii)


We all love Mario in our house. And on a rare occasion, we dig out the old Monopoly board for a round of tears and tantrums (and that's just me.) So the chance to play a game that's a mixture of the two was greeted with whoops of excitement.

It's a pity that the end result is dodgier than Donald Trump's hairstyle. The graphics are passable, the mini-games (the best part of this) are few and far between and it sadly commits the cardinal sin of video games -- it's just so boring.

We wanted to like it, we tried to like it, but unfortunately Boom Street didn't shake the room.
