Summary: Imagine the Monopoly board as a city. Each color is a city block with people walking around. You want to build retail stores, apartments and hotels to attract people to your block(s). I really like this game. I find myself wanting to play it often but it is more for online play, its really limited for single player mode. Once you play through the AI challenges to unlock the freeplay/sandbox mode it takes away the AI computer players and you play all by yourself!
Summary: This game is not what I thought it was. It was kind of boring. I thought it would be more like a sim city version of monopoly. You just build buildings and hope to be the first one to reach your sales. It's more fun to play the old-fashioned monopoly.
This could have been a great game - with the right attitude.

Summary: It's an OK game. Not a great game, but OK. If you find it dirt cheap, it's worth the buy. $4.97 sounds about right (marked down from $49.95! What a bargain! lol). This *could* have been a great game, but it appears to have been written by people who weren't happy writing it, and thought little of their customers during the process. What paultry efforts they did put forth were primarily for their financial benefit.

Summary: I guess I should not have expected the computer version of Monopoly to be any more exciting than the board game. It is, after all, Monopoly! But at least in the board game, you are moving more muscles than your index finger! I played this game at a relative's house, and I am very glad I did so. I now know not to buy it. Not only is it very slow, but also it is very hard to see. I needed a magnifying glass to view some of the graphics.
Summary: Graphics are an improvement over the previous Hasbro version of Monopoly, but the special features are annoying. Seriously, how many times do you want to hear "Mr. Monopoly" exclaim, "Eighter from Decateur!" or "Show me the money, Sack!"? Not to mention the annoying animated tokens or the dizzying 3D "camera work." Trades are confusing, and the computer opponents play the game like crazed lunatics. Wait until one gets a monopoly and starts building houses.
Summary: Step into the real world with a new and highly competitive version of Monopoly. This is not competitive like you roll the dice, see where you land, buy the property, then build houses once you get a monopoly. This is a game where at any given second you can lease a property from the city (where then it goes to auction instead of you just buying it) or you can build a residential or retail area without owning the land (you just rent it).
It could have been a good game, but it just lacks something that i cant put my finger on.

Excerpt: Just looking at the name makes you think this is just a cheap spin-off, profiting on Monopoly's good name, and this, in my opinion, is true. Well the game is based in a small 3D city, with the usual board tiles now represented in a small plot of land, of which you can build shops on, to increase profits and reach your goal. There is a wide variety of shops to build, from normal grocery shops, to clothes shops, and restaurants.
Excerpt: I have to start by saying this game is a bit of a let down. I have been waiting for this game for nearly a year. A Monopoly spin off that involves all the best elements of empire building, management sim and economic warfare. Sounds like just my sort of game. Ive been playing it for two weeks now and i finished the final scenario last night. It is nothing like monopoly but uses the monopoly theme to create a whole new game that is only really possible on a computer.
Summary: Hallo an alle Leserinnen und Leser, in meinem heutigen Bericht soll es um das PC Spiel „Monopoly Star Wars Edition“ gehen, welches ich nun als gebraucht gekaufte Version vor ungefähr einem Monat auf dem Flohmarkt erwarb und nun nur noch hin und wieder mal selten spiele. Warum nur selten? Ich hoffe, das wird mein folgender Testbericht klären... demnach bleibt mir nur übrig, euch natürlich wie immer viel Spaß beim Lesen, Bewerten und Kommentieren zu wünschen!
Pros: Man benötigt kein Spielbrett mehr, an die Sci - Fi Saga Star Wars angelehnt, gebraucht günstig
Cons: Grafik und Sound nicht mehr zeitgemäß (war es aber wohl noch nie), magerer Sound und Ton, Botspieler im Vorteil, kein richtiges Multiplayer
