Summary: The music's annoying. The computer cheats when losing badly. Game gets incredibly frustrating. Good if not playing with only computers. Multiplayer's fine. no worth $30. Go buy resident evil or Jak & Dax'. Not this... Nope... Stop.
Summary: If you're going to adapt a board game into video game format, you should at the very least make sure the console version is an improvement upon the original. It's not. Quite simply, this game is awful. I picked it up thinking it would at least be fun to play with a couple friends and have some beers, and not have to bother with setting up the board/ divvying out money, etc. Stick to the board game.
Summary: I was very unimpressed with this game. Yes, it is fun to play cause it bring monopoly to life but the computer obviously cheats on more than one occasion. And its very hard to win against the computer. You can own almost every single property on the board and still the computer player will not land on any of your property. They will either roll and the computer will move too many or they will land somewhere that they make money.
Family-oriented Shovelware, just in time for the holidays.

Summary: Monopoly has been made in video game form for nearly every single video game console for the past 20 years and, although this game might have a few new tricks and game modes up its sleeve, its complete and total lack of online multiplayer capability shows that EA just wanted to shovel a quick and dirty family game on store shelves in time for christmas. I wouldn't bother with this game until they make an xbox live compatible sequel.
Summary: I'm an avid fan of Monopoly. Whenever it is available for a console or for PC I buy it because it has never let me down in offering fun gameplay, great graphics and fun animations. Well, Monopoly has finally managed to let me down. This is the worse Monopoly I have ever played. Isn't the game supposed to get better and not worse? Graphics: I hate them. The board is so small I can barely see what the spaces are.
Summary: -Selecting what you want is a complete joke! There are more buttons than A! : Keeping the cursor is fine, but how about having Red, Yellow, RT, LT, RB, LB do something! Instead of after every turn, having to press -> to Next Turn, if you mess up you spend 5 min getting out of the "Accounts" menu. : Make the 360 blade model be your guide for selecting what you want in the game.
