Here comes the BOOM

20120223-053215.jpg

What started off as a curious investment in an alternative Mario Party style game, Boom Street from the get-go impressed me. It has lots of fan service for both Mario and Dragon Quest games. I’m not even a big fan of Dragon Quest but I recognised songs and characters straight away. I really love the acknowledgement of Yoshi’s Island (the stage and the music throughout the game). The game itself is what I call a mature Mario Party, scrapping mini-games and adding more strategy. Kind of like Monopoly. I recommend to anyone who likes party games that don’t involve waggle controls and gimmicks.
