Summary: I purchased the game because am a fan of Monopoly, and it was pretty hard to play the broad game with just my girlfriend and I. So I figured what better way to take up time on a rainy day. Game looks good but the AI does not put up much of a challenge even at the hardest level. Only played it once and now it sits on the shelf. Only plus is I paid less then $6.00 for it, but at the same time that same 6 bucks could have gone towards a combo at any local fast food joint.
Summary: I am a big fan of Monopoly, so i have had the game for every system. The one for my Super Nintendo was more fun and had better graphics plus you could control the dice by holding down the button and you actually saw someones hand rolling the dice.. SO now back to the PS3 version- no hand.. no dice control, and lame and repetative annoying sound- you know like the monopoly guy saying "its your property" very annoying and not FUN.. i give the game 2 out of 5.
Summary: The graphics are Ok. Gameplay is OK. The soundtrack loop is really annoying. Problem is you can't turn off the music or even lower its balance in the mix. We don't mind what the character speaks... so its either endure the audio or turn it off all together. The rules seem different than we've played on the board game.
Summary: This version is not like the 1995 Monopoly for PC by Westwood Studios. Pros: This edition has a much faster pace than the old PC game. A family of 4 can actually get through a game one night. The graphics in this game are very good. Trades are relatively easy. Cons: It may just be personal taste, but my family didn't care for the music in this game. It gets very repetitive.
Summary: Good: The graphics are okay and and the first few rounds of game play can be fun. There are different boards to choose which adds to the game-play. Bad: * The menu system is poorly designed. There is little distinction between selected buttons and non-selected. Selecting buttons is also buggy. * You can not turn off the voice tips which get annoying after hearing repeatedly. * The dice don't seem random enough.
Summary: I bought this game for my 9 year old son who loves Monopoly. This game is rather boring. Four of us cannot play with just two controllers so that is my biggest complaint. The game interaction could be a lot more entertaining. The only good thing about it, in my opinion, is the fact that I don't vacuum up any houses or monopoly money - no missing pieces with a video game!!
Summary: I am pretty much disappointed with the new Monopoly for PS3. The graphics are nice, but there are things that you can't change on the game which is frustrating. For example, the background music is !VERY! annoying and you can't turn it off. The animation to me was a step back from Monopoly PS2. On the PS2 the game pieces actually moved as live characters, on PS3 they just look like the regular metal game pieces as in board game.
