Itadaki Street [import] review

Decent
AT A GLANCE
  • Monopoly if you love it
  • Popular characters
  • Buy stock in your property
  • Monopoly if you hate it
  • No touch screen use
  • Mario Party without the minigames

Has anyone, in the world, ever, managed to complete an entire game of Monopoly? From our experience, it generally goes something like this: one player goes bust on the first round and spends the rest of the night doing an equally bad job as the banker. Someone else - usually that smarmy sibling who earns a little bit more than you - buys up all the train stations. The next seven hours are spent slowly giving Mr. Smarm your money, until eventually, everyone starts hustling each other, money goes missing and someone chokes half to death on a hotel.



Meet Itadaki Street: it’s Monopoly - on your DS. It’s a long-established series in Japan now, dating back to the SNES days, and has largely gone unchanged, as is the case here - the touch screen barely gets a grope.

The twist in the tale in Itadaki Street is that you can buy stocks in your property and, as you may have noticed, this particular version features characters from both the Mario and the Dragon Quest universes.

Just that factor alone should see it sell eight squizillion copies out East - no doubt further helped by its Wi-Fi compatibility. Frankly speaking though, we’d rather go and eat a hotel.
