Summary: This one was good, but not close to the best addition. Good Things: You did not have to worry about curb appeal. The premier lots helped in making a profit. The option to permit lots and upgrade to a fourth star helped in making a profit. Bad Things: At a low level, they expect you to have an extremely large amount of rent. $30,000 rent with just Tudors is HARD. The 'Property Taxes' addition would sometimes cost you a LOT.
Summary: From the reviews, I expected to like this game more than I did. I found it kinda confusing as sometimes you aren't really sure what you are doing is effecting your goal in a positive way. One thing I found really confusing with the concept of curb appeal... well, let me rephrase that, I get the concept but I had a hard time telling what upgrades were doing what.
Summary: I really like TM games... so this game was fun for me. I LOVE the Build-a-Lot games and this one was just another version of the game. I would not make this my introduction to the Build-a-Lot franchise, but I did buy as I do enjoy these games. Some of the levels are very hard and others are easy, but that makes the game fun.
Summary: One word - ADDICTIVE. I love a game that makes me feel smart and Build a lot makes me feel smart, lol. All kidding aside, this is a refreshingly complex game. It takes strategy and planning. Not for casual gamers looking for a nice match 3 game.
Summary: A serious let down! What do you expect when two very succesfull games,Monopoly and build a lot are joined into one game? I can imagine dozens of new interesting ideas that would deepen the game build a lot and enhance monopoly. Instead the biggest influence monopoly has on build a lot is design. The well known monopoly characters now gives advice. And in the scenery you see a road sign in the form of a monopoly property card.
Summary: The most fun i've had with a casual game. It made you think but it wasnt overly difficult. Graphics weren't great but didnt need to be for the type of game it is. A refreshing change from all the Match3, hidden object games that are flooding our casual game stores.
