Summary: I first came across this game, in the "previously owned" section in a game store. It was kind of pricey for a used game, and at the time, passed on it. I later went back to get it, and it was gone, and since it was out of production, was hard to find. I then figured it must be good. Found one, paid to much for it. There are better Monopoly games, than the one featured on this card. Yahtzee is missing many of the things, that I think it should have.
Summary: I am glad that I bought this game despite some of the reviews. Maybe my vocabulary isn't that great, but I haven't had any problems with boggle not recognizing the words I enter. Also, I do have a save feature on Monopoly. Yahtzee is great. I like the variety of the screens. I wish they had not put battleship on this game because I already have it on the "Sorry, Battleship, Connect Four and Trouble". I would like to see parcheesi come out for ds.
Summary: The developers have gone out of their way to make these games ugly and unpleasant to play. * Boggle - ugly, doesn't know some basic words * Yahtzee - ugly, but okay * Battleship - ugly, tedious, clumsy * Monopoly - okay For example, when I say Boggle is ugly, I mean because they are using a 3D engine to render the cubes, and the letter forms do not look good in this mode - all mis-shapen.
Summary: These games could be fun, but the cartridge is riddled with bugs. For instance, as you race to select letters in Boggle, about one in five of your stylus taps will be mis-registered, screwing up the word. You have to slow down, which misses the entire point of the game. This is the only DS game I've played that has any trouble telling where you've tapped. There are similar interface, gameplay, and AI glitches in all four games.
Summary: It does have all four games together, which is really nice. I could play each for hours. The Yahtzee AI isn't that bad, and I love the different games you can play in Boggle (my favorite is the seek game, where it gives you a list and you have to find the words...talk about expanding your vocabulary!) It is missing a lot of words, as another reviewer mentioned; I tried getting something like "sat" once and it claimed it didn't exist.
Summary: This is a decent game, though I can't believe people are trying to sell this for the amount they are. Let's list the good point... notice, singular, not plural. 1) It's got Monopoly, Boggle, battleship, and Yahtzee.... Now for the bad: 1) No save feature 2) limited gameplay without two copies of the game for multiplayer 3) Boggle is missing so many words that it's overly frustrating to play 4) Monopoly is near impossible to play due to the lack of a save feature 5) It's...
Summary: This game set is extremely overpriced at $69... Monopoly is fun but not particularly challenging. I can not seem to lose. The AI players make stupid trades with Me and also with each other. They can not look ahead. When they do get a monopoly, it takes them too long to develop the property so it is rarely a threat to your game. I find this unchallenging. The programmers need to make the AI players more capricious.
Summary: I bought this used ($19) because I LOVE Monopoly (have 3 electronic versions & 7 board games). To me the other games were just extras. I haven't had any of the problems of the other reviewers. Monopoly: I love it!!The game saves quickly. The game pieces are somewhat animated with sound effects (horse gallops, car vrooms & toots, shoe hops & scuffs, etc). Gameplay is good. I wish there was an easier way to see what everyone else has..
Summary: I really enjoyed playing Monopoly on this title. Monopoly has an interesting ticker at the top of the DS screen which displays game stats. Sound was ok, not annoying after four games. The game has a very fast save feature and load time, for Monopoly. I exploited this feature to cheat, by saving first. Then roll the dice and see what happens, if you do not like the outcome, simply exit the game. The main menu will load in a second, then click Monopoly and load game.
