Summary: I was considering giving this a 5-star rating, but it is not quite that. It is better than 3 stars. And it appears to be much better than other computer Monopoly renditions. Pros The presentation is very polished. The colors, artwork, and detail are beautiful, reminding me of the physical board game. The game designers seemed to have put effort into accurately portraying the physical board game. The game flows smoothly, over all.
Summary: Sometimes I get real pissed at this game because, I out smart the computer. But he never lands on trouble, or has to go to jail or etc. I think sometimes it`s rigged against me. But whatever when I do beat the computer, it`s sweet. Because I really BEAT the computer. But you are gonna get get your butt handed to you 70% of the time. But I do still enjoy matching wits against the game.
Summary: I really love Monopoly but the only thing that I don't like is playing on the harder levels it seems like they rig the dice. 1st time around the board I got 1 property because I went 2nd and I landed on every property the computer bought. Then I landed on jail twice in a row. This happened on 2 separate games. So I just like to play this on easy to kill time and I love Monopoly.
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.
Very enjoyable game if you have the time to play it out.

Summary: I bought the game because I enjoy playing it, taking chances of landing on such places as Park Place and Boardwalk, building an empire, and forcing the other players into bankruptcy. The only thing I didn't like about the game is the length of time it takes to play it. But I would buy it again because I am now retired and have the time that it takes to play it. How does it compare to others? Well, snooker is far better, as is solitaire and, of course, blackjack.
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 find the animation very slow and I cannot find a way to turn it off. I also read someone elses comment here about how they think the odds are against the human player... Now that I have got it and am using it – I cannot help wondering the same thing... Still not sure though.... Otherwise nice enough and satisfies my childhood memories of family drama around the Monopoly board.
