Summary: Unfortunately, you have to play this from disk with Win7. They should update their program. It runs slow, and you have to set it up everytime you start a new game. Still thinking about returning it.
Summary: I have played quite a few times against the computer and noticed the computer players seem to get favorable rolls the majority of the time. On the other time it seems as though the human player gets unfavorable rolls. For example (this has happened to me 3 times in the span of 5 trips around the board) I would land on the Credit Card Interest box and then on my next turn land on the Income Tax box. Numerous times in different games it would happen to me twice in a row.
Summary: I don't have this game, but I have the "Original" Monopoly CD Rom game. I've played THIS one too, and it's the same story with BOTH versions; cheating computer, always seem to roll a number that helps it to avoid your properties bearing hotels. Pretty much geared towards you losing. Even those Chance & Community Chest cards will aid them in avoiding your property.
Summary: I would have given this a higher rating but I have to have the disc in while playing. Also am having trouble with the game freezing from time to time. Don't know if it is the game or my computer though. I also would like it more if it would save the rules that I prefer to play with, instead of having to enter them each time I want to play.
Summary: I love to waste time playing Monopoly, but you need the disk in the tray to play it, otherwise all good. Since they came out with Vista compatible versions the game is skewed in favor of the computer opponents. They will make ridiculous trades with themselves, but will want all your money or properties before they'll trade with you. There is another standard version that works on Vista that doesn't require the disk after installation.
Summary: First of all, haven't tried any other PC version of Monopoly and was never a Monopoly expert. But as mentioned in other reviews, the cd has to be in the computer to play this. Hence lots more wear and tear on drives. Tried cloning disc and using Nero virtual drive to avoid this to no avail. When installing this game on your computer Sony's Securom DRM program is stealthily installed on your computer. And it prevents playing without the original cd.
Summary: The gameplay is very close to Monopoly 2008; but with the updated properties, tokens, chance & community chest cards, and higher dollar amounts. I hook my laptop to the 52" HDTV and the whole family loves to play. The only drawback...and worth taking two stars away...is that you have to have the CD-ROM in your computer's drive at all times while playing the game. Monopoly 2008 can be played without the CD-ROM in the drive.
No bells & whistles like the 95/98 earlier version

Summary: Monopoly still stands as a great game, but this version has no banker stats to look at like the earlier 95-98 3D version. This program does not automatically track any stats on your overall value to determine if paying 10% or $2M tax; it does not track how much money you've earned on each property owned... If you have the 95/98 version then you know what I'm talking about. The developers took the time to create a great game then.
