Summary: I tried to make the sound it makes throughout the game when you get hit with a penalty or land on an expensive rental property. It has just enough bells and whistles, sights and sounds, and cute movements to make it fun and exciting. Just think, the banker doesn't cheat you, the rent is paid immediately, the players move each space without you reaching for them, and you get a patty wagon ride to jail. Hahahaha. Worth the ride.
Summary: The game is like classic Monopoly except the property names, currency values and tokens are updated. The board game is fun but the pc version is better because you don't have to be the banker and you can complete a game in 1-2 hours depending on the custom settings that you choose (like starting currency amount). On the negative side, I agree with the other reviews that often it seems like the AI (other players) cheat a bit.
Entertaining, but time consuming (not in the good way)

Summary: This a straight, no frills rendition of the popular board game. It has three different opponent levels - beginner, intermediate, and advanced. The basic difference between them is the first two will make trades easier than the advanced character will. In fact, playing with a mix of levels (as I sometimes do) can be annoying, because the beginner character will always give away property for only a small profit.
Summary: I really like this game. I play it every day. The one thing I don't like is that I can't seem to get rid of saved games, even after I finish playing them and leave the game , when I re-enter it is still under saved games.
Summary: What could be better than Monopoly on the PC? No more losing your hat or car, ha! The only downside to this kind of a game is that the kids don't get practice counting and dealing with money, which was always one of the major benefits of playing this game as a kid. Other than that we have had alot of fun playing this and even after all these years... I still can't seem to win a game!!
Great game, just wish the CD wasn't required to play!!

Summary: Great game and I love the animation. The only downside is if you choose to play it on your laptop and wish to play at a remote side, you have to carry along the CD; the game will not play without it! This will be a factor in my next purchase of any game from the company.
