Summary: I put it in my disk drive and it did not automatically load like I expected it to. I had to figure out how to get it to load. I have no problems with keeping it in my computer to play it but it should have just started loading. If it would have loaded on it's own it WOULD HAVE gotten 5 stars but having to figure out how to get it to load caused it to lose 2 stars.
Summary: I have enjoyed the game for the most part, but have had it "freeze up" in mid-game forcing me to abandon the game on 2 or 3 occasions. There is a problem with deleting saved games after returning to them after they have been completed. Other than these problems it's more fun playing at the "X1000" values than the old original game.
Summary: Il legame tra giochi da tavolo e videogames è sempre stato molto forte e le interazioni tra questi due passatempi, negli anni, hanno assunto varie forme e contaminazioni. Si va dallo sfruttare le regole ed i meccanismi ludici dei board game per costruire l'ossatura di giochi di ruolo o simili, come per esempio è successo tra la serie Baldur's Gate e il set Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Seconda Edizione, a “semplici” trasposizioni dei giochi in scatola, ccome nel caso degli...
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.
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.
