Summary: I happen to like playing Monopoly. But when you play this game against the computer opponents, you are in for a strange ride. The computer opponents will mortgage all their properties to fund a monopoly they may have just gotten.
If money and power is your thing, this is a game for you.

Summary: I think this game is great to teach a lesson in business and wealth creation. A lot of the principles apply in real life. However, there is a formula for success, which makes the game boring after you figured it out. There is a good selection of challenges that you can play.
Summary: A little one-noteish, if still addictive. The premise sort of smashes Sim City with Monopoly imagery, which is kind of cool, except the game unfolds in a linear, scenario-based way; you can't just go hog-wild and start building a city/financial empire until you're broke against computer (or online...
Summary: The concept of the game is an interesting spin on the board game-- place businesses in blocks to garner a profit, lease the lots to monopolize a block. The game stays true to the original board game in its buy-out concept, building hotels, become the basic "tycoon".
Summary: ...For about two weeks, this was my life, I played Monopoly Tycoon all the time, even dabbling in the multiplayer thing on Gamespy (by the way, Gamespy is a terrible network, most people seem to be connected to the internet with a can and string).
Summary: This game is a lot of fun -- initially. Played on a Monopoly-like "board" it's up to you to create a balance of shops and housing for your SIM residents; earning you the big bucks and wiping out the competition.

Summary: I read a number of rave reviews of this game and was excited to try it. I didn't get it for Christmas AS REQUESTED so I bought it for myself for my birthday. I love Monopoly and I became a SimCity 1.0 junkie back in college 13 or more years ago.
Summary: It's a great game, but you have to play it their way. You have to work your way up levels. So if you want to play a regular game, you have to beat all the levels first, so far no one has got past level 4. I played several tries, and can't get past 4. (20,000 empire value).
