Summary: Not bad value if it wasn't for the major bug. The standard Monopoly game that makes up half of the disc is not a very good computer version being fiddly and long winded to use and not graphically up to much. The Android version is better and the iPad is the best. The Monopoly Streets part of the game disc is the most graphically superior version I have ever played.
Would be great if it didn't freeze the Wii console every 10 minutes

Summary: This game has a programming bug that makes it freeze the entire Wii console every 10 minutes or so, emitting a constant buzzing tone as the only sign of life after that. The only way to continue is to push and hold the on/off button on the console until it restarts. The game auto-saves, so one can load the saved game and continue until it freezes again after 10 minutes or so, and so it continues.
Monopoly is a game of chance - Didn't bank on receiving a faulty product
18 December 2012
Summary: I bought this present as a gift for my daughter, and we were really excited before we started to play the game. I must say we order dozens of things from Amazon and so far this has been our only disappointment. But it is a BIG disappointment. We started to play the normal monopoly game and were 1 round from finishing (played 8 out of 9 rounds) when the screen went black and we had to reset the game. The streets game was even less successful.
Summary: Initially the game is OK but very quickly becomes boring and repetitive. You can fast forward the moves to speed it up a bit but you cannot get rid of the annoying noises the characters make every time they throw a dice. We have had two of these games now as each time it gets to the end of the long game and a player declares bankrupt, you have to do this to eliminate a player from the game, the game freezes and the wii locks up buzzing.
Summary: I purchased this thinking it would be a fun family game over the Christmas period ... I was wrong! It's dull, slow and the little man in the bowler hat is very annoying. Do yourself a favor and stick to the board game.
